Mr. Ajmera's Review (A business user)

A small device like this might neatly fit in my pockets, but that's all it can and nothing much with the cramped screen size of 4.7 inches. It is a decent battery life but not for someone like my usage and I constantly on my toes to charge for my phone continuously or dangle a bulky power bank. This battery is a decent choice only if you can't mange to buy a more powerful option, else it be more often connected to the charger than to you. With all the advanced call management features present in the Moto X, it is good choice for business users like me. Bluetooth file sharing is really not of much use to me, but this feature is really handy when it comes to hands-free calling. Even if my travel routes, both business and pleasure, is very much known to me I'd still like the reassurance from the GPS navigation on my phone.

Mrs. Iyer's Review (A homemaker)

The size of the Moto X makes it extremely portable, but with its tiny and cramped keypad it's really not of much use to me. I never let a special occasion pass by without recording it, right from cake cutting to dinner parties; and the Moto X with good recording possesses is really recommended for me. I don't like the camera in particular, and I won't be buying the Moto X, however good the other features might be.

Ishan's Review (A geek)

As a smartphone, the screen size of the Moto X is quite decent; but too tiny when it comes to gaming or reading. I have my display running most of the day either because of reading or gaming. The AMOLED display, however bids an awesome viewing experience and even preserves up on battery. I love gaming or reading on the AMOLED display of this smartphone. Although I would recommend a higher frequency for gaming, the 1.7 GHz is not that bad an option. The frequent lags and sluggish loading of games of the dual core processor drives me up the wall. Now I can rejoice in extremely graphical games with no lags, and on top of this manage to multitask with the 2 GB RAM of this smartphone. The Moto X with the 16 GB internal storage really talks to me; it understands my storage needs when it comes to my ebook and gaming collection. Immediately after a 4 hour graphic-intense gaming session on the Moto X, I have to plug it in charging; these gaming sessions sometimes are shortened by a call in between as the battery is almost depleted by the end of the call.

Prachi's Review (A social butterfly)

The 4.7 inches display of the Moto X was the first thing that grabbed my attention. I desire texting over talking but this screen size is way too cramped to do that easily. The Yes, 10 MP camera resolution is not that cool. If there are cheaper options available that too with better camera resolution, then you should opt for it. I don't this smartphone are able to click awesome pictures, which by the way is my favourite hobby. For me, a smartphone with secondary camera means loads of selifes. Me and my friends are a huge followers of the selfie and groupie trend, we hardly stop clicking 'em. If you find clicking selfies as cool as I do then you should definitely go for a smartphone with an amazing secondary camera. My smartphone should be doing more than messaging, browsing and emails and that too simultaneously. I feel 2G networks are not reliable when it comes to this. I keep checking the GPS for new locations and traffic updates. I always forget charging my phone so USB charging via my laptop is really a good option for me and sometimes I even stick with this port to transfer music and images. I can't be choosing between which media files to keep and which ones to delete, due to internal storage as low as 16 GB. It's irritating to delete favourite files from my smartphone due to memory issues, so I always choose with larger internal storage.
