My week with the Moto X
(While not technically a week it has been five days)
This past tuesday of this week I finally upgraded my device on Verizon and I went into the store really unsure of what I was going to get and then I said for shits and giggles I would check out the Moto X, and some of you may have heard or read the story multiple times already, once you hold the Moto X in your hands, you fell its amazing design. It also does not hurt when you see the designed and assembled in U.S.A. on the bottom of the back. I went with whatever phone was the closest to my Droid Razr M in size, and now five days later, I`m still enjoying the device.
I was scared at first in losing a micro sd card slot then I found about Motorola Migrate. If you don`t know Motorola Migrate yet, its and app that you can download on the play store to transfer everything (except contacts) to your new shiny Motorola device. I`m talking pics, music, videos, and texts it was all transferred over through wifi. Now that I have all my stuff I guess my hankering for a micro sd card slot went away.
A few tidbits about the Moto X:
- Battery life is better than my Droid Razr M and I could stretch through a whole day, with the Moto X I don`t ever stress about the battery at all. I still do my usual stuff to help save battery though as well (Battery saver mode on, wifi, gps, location, data, and bluetooth off. I also keep Battery Defender installed on every android device I have owned since 2011.)
- It may not seem that much to some but the jump to 720p screens on a smartphone for me is awesome. The screen with screen brightness real low is verrryy dark.
- The design in the phone is so good that I can use it one handed.
- Again, that screen is amazing and watching Netflix or Pacific Rim through UV/Flixster is a joy.
- Plenty of cases to find as well, any suggestions already have a Poetic flipbook and a cover bought from Verizon
- Getting rid of unlimited data isn't bad at all. Have 6GB of data shared with mom who is a light user, so no worries at all when in the past with Razr M I rarely went over 5GB.
- Gaming on this phone is a delight, playing Badlands, Riptide GP2, and Eufloria HD.
- Kit-Kat is nice on the Moto X.
- Also, I disabled google search and touch-less controls, I just have active display on.
- The built in printing in Kit-Kat still needs work.
- Feels weird being on the latest version of android. I feel perfectly happy and content with my device
