Key features of the Moto X include touchless control and quick camera access via a gesture

Gizmag was recently given early access to Motorola's Moto Maker website to customize our own Moto X, the new smartphone from the Google subsidiary that can be personalized before being assembled and shipped out from a Motorola factory in Fort Worth, Texas. Let's take a look at the results.  Read More

The Moto X can easily become part of the family

It's been a full two weeks since I got Motorola's Moto X home with me and integrated into my daily life. The first few days of my interactions with the 4G smartphone coming to AT&T next week (with other carriers to follow) were covered in my initial Moto X review for Gizmag. Now it's time to share some deeper reflections on this much-hyped device and cover some of the ground that didn't make it into the review.  Read More

One of the suggested design themes for the Moto X

Earlier this month, Motorola introduced the Moto X, the company's first smartphone designed and delivered as a Google subsidiary (see my full Moto X review here). From the beginning of its marketing push for the new phone in July, Motorola has touted the Moto X as the first customizable smartphone. This week, Gizmag was given special access to create our own Moto X through the beta version of Moto Maker, Motorola's online software that will allow consumers to order, design and customize their own look for the phone.  Read More

A passcode or pattern lock is a great way to keep your phone secure, but they can be a bit of a hassle. Motorola Skip is a new accessory that uses NFC to bypass the pesky part of securing your phone.  Read More

Gizmag compares the specs and features of the LG G2 and Moto X

Right before the holidays, it seems like there's a major new smartphone or tablet announced every other day. We aren't quite there yet this year, but we must be getting close. LG's G2 and Motorola's Moto X, both announced in the last couple of weeks, are significant Android phones that show their significance in very different ways. Let's compare their specs and features, and see if we can help you find which is better for you.  Read More

The Moto X doesn't sport smoking specs, just a few killer features

Motorola's first phone designed and brought to market since becoming a wholly owned part of Google, the Moto X, is finally here. I've had one in my hands for almost a week now since snagging a loaner to review for Gizmag at Motorola's press event in New York City. It's traveled with me from the Big Apple back to the American Southwest and on a short road trip through Colorado's southern Rockies in that time, and as I've grown more familiar with what it can do across such varied geography, I can comfortably say that although the Moto X might not be a revolution, it is quite an impressive step forward.  Read More

This year is shaping up to be a great one for Android phones. We've already seen several flagships that you could argue are among the best smartphones ever made. How does the Moto X, Motorola's first phone created from start to finish under Google's ownership, fit in with the pack? Let's compare its specs and features with the HTC One, which we already know is one of the best smartphones of 2013.  Read More

Gizmag compares the specs and features of Motorola's Moto X and Apple's iPhone 5. Which ex...

If you're buying a smartphone, do you look for the most cutting-edge specs or do you prioritize overall experience? In many ways, this question has defined the battle between Android and iOS. Apple traditionally worships at the altar of experience, while Android phone makers more often squeeze in the latest-and-greatest components. But in Motorola's Moto X, we have one of the best examples of a marquee Android phone offering an Apple-like focus on experience. Let's throw the two into our magical comparison machine and see what happens.  Read More

Does a smartphone market dominated by Apple and Samsung have room for a third major player? That's what Google-owned Motorola is hoping for, with the new Moto X. The phone is reportedly going to have an insane half a billion dollar marketing budget, but does it have the goods to back that up? Let's try to get an idea, as we compare it to Samsung's Galaxy S4.  Read More
