When done, Motorola will assemble your device follow your request in USA and ship it to you for FREE in 4 days.

Touchless Control – Users can speak to the phone even when it is on sleep mode. It may need to train the software first before start it. But, it will then serve as an always available personal assistant that will respond to your requests.

The Cons

Display – This device has a 720p HD display instead of 1080p HD display like others high end smartphones. Nearly all high-end phones and even midrange phones comes with full HD screens.

Limited Storage – Moto X comes in 2 storage options which are 16GB or 32GB. It is not a 64GB model and also didn’t have memory card expansion slot. That means the most storage available only have 32GB. To offset this, Motorola is giving every Moto X owner 50GB of Google Drive space for two years.
