"Moto X was positively blazing ... Unlike the S4, there's no lag here." o.O
Laptop Mag's Moto X review came out yesterday. Not the most thorough thing in the world, but this part stood out:
In everyday use, the Moto X was positively blazing, allows us to switch between apps and exit back to the home screen in the blink of an eye. Unlike the S4, there's no lag here. The camera opened from the home screen and was ready to fire in 1.4 seconds, which is faster than the S4's 2.2 seconds. The Moto X also beat the S4 in opening the "Minion Rush" game (18.2 seconds vs. 22 seconds). The Moto X deftly handled "Riptide GP 2," delivering swift frame rates and detailed animations.
To test the Moto X further, we transcoded a 203 MB 1080p video to 480p using the VidTrim app. The handset took 6 minutes and 59 seconds, compared to 7:27 for the S4. That's nearly 30 seconds faster. The HTC One took 7:34.
I wonder how it compares to the S4/One Google Play editions, since I suspect TouchWiz and Sense are getting in the way. Still, pretty positive take on the Moto X.
