So these came in today at work

 

Hmm, "motox."  You should sell them to middle aged women as an alternative to Botox.

 

:P

I wonder if they'll release on Friday.  I also wonder if Moto still have the edge when it comes to reception or if that's no longer the case.

not since the photon 4g (original) has moto had the edge.

How many did you get in? Is that more or less then the other flagship phones you normally get?

I got several Moto Xs in earlier this week for AT&T and they sold out almost immediately. We only got 5 on release day though.

I haven't read through this but I stopped back at my work today and the moto guy was there so I got to play with the x uninterrupted.

I checked out the debug and diag screens and they do work on this phone. I also got to play around with all the features and what not and this phone is going to be awesome. How it integrates with all the Google Apps will make this a powerhouse for the casual to semi serious phone user.

Hope it has awesome reception like the photon g. Has anyone got any info on that?

The demo I keep seeing is a sprint one but it's unactivated. I wish I knew more on this too.

Can we get a release date already?  My wife is badly in need a new phone and she is getting impatient.  We stopped by an AT&T store to hold the device and it felt great in the hand.  It doesn't feel large at all for a 4.7" screen device.  I even preferred the feel of it over my EVO 4G LTE.

I went to a AT&T store to play with the Moto X because I was curious about the phone.  The screen itself is 4.7 inches but the Moto X uses onscreen buttons for home, back and multiwindow which take up some screen real estate.  I took out my Moto Photon which is 4.3 inches and measured it up minus the onscreen button space and sure enough the true screen size of the Moto X is only 4.3 inches.  I was pretty bummed out about that.

 

I wish Sprint would start giving out release dates already for the Moto X and LG G2. Verizon and AT&T are already selling the Moto X and we know the Moto X has already passed the FCC testing.

Eric, at least that is better than the photon q. The q has a smaller usable screen them our photon g's.

On the nexus phones, the same or similar buttons are there, with some apps the buttons disappear.

For example with Mxplayer.

When I had the first Photon, it was great at getting a WiMax signal.  At the time my wife's Evo Shift couldn't get anything in the same spot.  I remember reading on Anandtech that Moto used a different WiMax chip than the others, which contributed to that.

This article presents ones take on how phone spec's are not quite as important as they used to be, as Android has improved its efficiency over the years and dosen't necessarily require that 2ghz octacore processor to provide a good user experience. In some ways, I tend to agree, and think there are some good points.  The Moto X was used as an example, so I thought I'd bring it up here.

What do you all think?

There are two things to mention when it comes to CPUs: 

  1. When you see a CPU speed listed (this basically only applies to mobile) is that they list the max speed that a phone, aka where it spends <1% of its time. 
  2. In my opinion, there are no phones with 8 cores because only four are visible to the operating system. Also, very few apps are properly multi-threaded so you usually won't notice any difference between 2 and basically any number you can throw in there.

Gotchya. Although, I was being sarcastic when I said "2ghz octacore processor" to emphasize the lust we seem have for spec's, in a round-a-bout way.  Good info on most app's not bing properly multi-threaded to take full advantage of multiple core CPU's. I remember hearing about that when the dual-cores first came out when I got my EVO 3D but, I still had to have it... guess its still mostly the same, huh?

Yeah, It takes a lot of time and hard work to properly implement it, especially when, unless it is a CPU demanding app, the results might not even have an effect on the app performance.

My quilting circle resents that multi threaded remark.

Crochet, no. Croquet, yes.  Speaking of which, I have a mallet that I would like you to meet.

I don't think I really want to meet Ryan Mallet, He always came off kinda douchey at Arkansas and now New England.  :P

    • Interesting to read an update.  But I remember a lot of people back then said, 'I will believe it when I see it.'  Now, 5 years later, I can't help but hear those voices even louder now.  They were certainly proven right.  Even if it does eventually happen. Robert
    • I know that. I'm talking about further down the line for 5G. What I'm saying is that with the addition of Sprint's PCS, they can expand LTE on PCS and shift HSPA from AWS to the remaining 5MHz in PCS-B so that they can have a 25MHz n66 carrier down the line and a 20MHz n2 carrier since n2 is not currently registered for greater than 20MHz carriers. The other solution would be to simply get rid of HSPA altogether and have two 25MHz n66 and n25 carriers since n25 allows for 25MHz carriers. Then T-Mobile could retain the 5MHz PCS-G for legacy LTE service.
    • Hopefully they get more Sprint users in T-Mobile since they are reducing B25 for Sprint to 2 5x5 blocks and I've also notice B41 LTE disappearing in LI. Sent from my SM-G988U1 using Tapatalk
    • HSPA+ isn't on B2 in NY. It's on B4 out there since they have 20x20 B4. Before the merger TMO only had 10x10 total Sent from my SM-G975U1 using Tapatalk
    • They poached it from the lower 5MHz of Sprint's PCS B-block. I'm assuming the plan is to eventually expand PCS to 20MHz, leaving two 5MHz blocks (one in B-block and one in G-block) for legacy HSPA and Sprint LTE.
