To add some interesting bit into the Smartphone sales from the branded makers, Motorola has announced a starting price of $399 for their unlocked Moto X device. That’s quite a drop to consider even though when compared to the Nexus 5 from Google and their own Moto G the price is some bit higher. The Google Nexus 5 for instance would come for $50 lesser than the $399 for the Moto X and their own Moto G model would come for half the price of $399.
What the flagship model of Motorola is made up of is a 720p display for the 4.7 inch device. It would be powered by a quad core processor and have 16 GB of storage space. The other interesting features are the touch-less controls and Active Display of the device. It also has a feature termed ‘always listening’ due which the device can be controlled by voice even if the display is switched off. The screen also need not be turned on to check the notifications that come in. Another very intuitive feature of the handset is the ability to take a photograph by just a flick of the wrist. There is no need to switch on the device and search for the camera icon for this function.
The device would support all major cellular service providers in the US. While there is the option of going for a contract purchase thereby getting to pay less for the handset as such, in the long run the outright purchase of the set and then selecting carriers based on locality and packages that they have on offer can well be a wiser option.
