Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

My smartphone, no doubt, has to efficiently performs professional functions such as Document Viewer, Document Editor, which Moto X 2nd Gen does well. I can either opt for convenient typing on large keypad or portability of an average-sized device; and usually typing convenience wins which is not a problem with this large screened phone. I more than often go for efficient devices like the as it present me with a robust call management; as I am hardly ever off my phone. Bluetooth in my smartphone is essential more for hands-free calling than file sharing. I am mostly traveling around and even if it is in known streets, I prefer having my GPS navigation guiding me along, in case of traffic or diversions.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

I like typing on the large keypad of the Moto X 2nd Gen but the screen overall is too big to carry around. I never let a special occasion pass by without recording it, right from cake cutting to dinner parties; and the Moto X 2nd Gen with good recording features is really good for me. I don't like the camera in particular, and I won't be buying the Moto X 2nd Gen, however good the other features might be.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

Gaming or reading on the larger-than-life 5.2 inch display of the Moto X 2nd Gen is really exciting as the graphics seem so real and the text so lucid. Fluid motions and speedy graphics really excite the gamer in me; there are no frustrating CPU lags whatsoever. My games load way faster in quad-core and deliver an overall smooth performance; add increased clock speed to this and you get a real deal. Heavy multi-tasking and graphic-intensive games seem like a cakewalk with the 2 GB RAM of the Moto X 2nd Gen. The Moto X 2nd Gen with the 16 GB internal storage really talks to me; it understands my storage needs when it comes to my ebook and gaming collection.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

For me the 5.2 inches display is the first thing I noticed in the Moto X 2nd Gen. And I simply can't stop admiring the awesome screen size and the fantastic videos of the Moto X 2nd Gen. Movies and videos on a large screen are the best, the screen type or resolution doesn't matter to me much. Even typing is quite easy on a large screen, although you always need both hands to operate it. Yes, 13 MP is not that great camera resolution. There are so many smartphones with better megapixels sometimes even cheaper than this phone. I love clicking pictures with my smartphone and this one doesn't seem up for it. I can't imagine my smartphone without the secondary camera. I and my friends simply love the selfies and groupies and click hundreds of them. It's too much effort to do it with the main camera, so having a cool front camera is much better; it is more fun to have front camera with higher megapixels. My smartphone should do a lot of things simultaneously and not just basic messaging, emails and browsing. And the 2G network is too slow to do anything more than that. I can now travel to almost any new place or location with the built-in GPS and it is great help during various emergencies, traffic updates or navigation issues. I always forget charging my phone so USB charging via my laptop is really a good option for me and sometimes I even use this port to transfer music and images. With the 16 GB internal storage I have to choose between which music, movies, videos and images to keep or delete from my phone. I hate to do that and hence don't like phones with average internal memory; a bigger storage is more of my style.
