Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

If there is one thing absolutely vital in my smartphone apart from great call management, is it being able to download and edit most email attachments; and much more such as Document Viewer, Document Editor present in this device. It's a constant struggle with the Moto X 2nd Gen to balance my need for a large screen and keyboard that accommodate my large fingers, against the need for a small size and low weight device that would enhance mobility. Not an hour goes by without my phone ringing, that's why I always go for something like the Moto X 2nd Gen that has all the advanced features to ease the communication. Although I am not so much into file sharing via Bluetooth as I am more of an email guy, but it is quite essential for hands-free calling. I am constantly on the move, even if most of the travel routes are familiar, the GPS navigation in the Moto X 2nd Gen is quite reliable and reassuring.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

Typing on the big keypad of the Moto X 2nd Gen is really convenient but later carrying a large phone around is troublesome; doesn't even fit in most of my clutches. Video recording is a must on my phone, I just love recording and capturing the innocence of cake cutting or the craziness of a dinner party. I won't worry about the other features in the Moto X 2nd Gen as the camera is so average and a strong deterrent for me.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

I get an awesome realistic gaming experience and crystal clear text display with the huge 5.2 inch screen of the Moto X 2nd Gen. No annoying CPU lags, just smooth and swift gaming experience with the 2.5 GHz processor. Swift loading and overall smooth performance is every gamer's dream; and it comes true when you get the Moto X 2nd Gen that packs in quad core processor. The Moto X 2nd Gen manages heavy apps simultaneously and also delivers a smooth performance with my graphic-intensive games. The 16 GB internal storage of the Moto X 2nd Gen is really meant for me and my ever-growing ebook and gaming collection.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The first thing I noticed in the Moto X 2nd Gen was its 5.2 inches display. The awesome screen size and the fantastic videos of the Moto X 2nd Gen is something I simply can't get enough of. I really don't care much about the screen type or resolution; I just want my movies and videos on a large screen. Large screen typing for me is pretty cool; of course I have to use both my hands for this. The Yes, 13 MP camera resolution is not that cool. You can easily opt for any other smartphone with a better camera, it might even be cheaper. I don't think this smartphone can click awesome pictures, which by the way is my favourite hobby. Recently, I can't imagine life without selfies, and hence the secondary camera. Clicking selfies and groupies is a favourite pastime for me and my friends. It's sometimes difficult to click selfies and groupies with the main camera, so always go for smartphones with good secondary camera. I'd like my smartphone to do all my tasks simultaneously not just perform basic functions like browsing, messaging and emails. And I won't depend upon 2G networks for that. I keep checking the GPS for new locations and traffic updates. The USB connector lets me charge my phone even with my laptop and transfer files. Lower internal storage like 16 GB makes me chose which movies, music, images and videos to keep or delete from your phone. A larger internal storage suits me more than average internal memory as I hate deleting my smartphone content due to memory issues.
