Moto X 2nd Generation

Posted by 7 on

moto-x-2nd-generation-gadget-grave Motorola has taken its Moto X to the next level with the Moto X 2nd generation. The Moto X 2nd Generation is water resistant, weighs just over 5 ounces and has an AMOLED 5.2 inch screen with Corning Gorilla Glass3 that is bigger than the 4.7-inch screen from the previous model. The colors in the Moto X 2nd Generation deep, crisp and bright stunning the critics. The screen is a big improvement over the Moto X. The Moto X 2nd Generation is about the same size as the HTC One M8 but continues the traditional slightly curved back – that is comfortable in the hand. motorola-moto-x-2nd-generation-gadget-grave The Moto X 2nd Generation does not come with an external SD card slot, but does come with either a 16GB of internal memory or a 32 GB. Motorola did end the 64-GB version of their Moto X series.   There is 2 GB of RAM as well. The Moto X 2nd Generation comes with Andriod v4.4.4 (KitKat) but will be able to upgrade to the newest Android L – when it is released. new-moto-x-2nd-generation-gadget-grave The Moto X 2nd Generation processor is a Snapdragon 801 Quad Core 2.5 GHz Krait 400. This doubles the speed of the Moto X 1st Generation.   The Moto X 2nd Generation has an upgraded rear-facing camera – from 10 MP to 13 MP with a front-facing 2 MP camera.   You can customize your Moto X 2nd Generation through the Moto Maker. The Moto Maker allows you to choose from 10 trim colors, either a black or white front, 17 back covers or for $25 extra – you can choose from an additional 8 back designs – Wood or leather. You get to choose whether your Moto X 2nd Generation is a 16 GB or 32 GB as well as adding an engraving on the outside (just be careful what you put, as this will affect resale value!).   While designing your Moto X 2nd Generation, you will be able to add your own greeting as well as have it shipped with your Gmail already installed – ready to go with all your information in the device. This means, all you have to do is activate and go! I LOVE this idea. I love the option to have a fully customizable phone! google-moto-x-2nd-generation-gadget-grave There are not too many additional changes. The Moto X 2nd Generation will continue to have active listening – so that you can text, call, listen to messages or set alarms, reminders without ever touching your phone. The Moto X 2nd Generation continues the tradition of NOT having to say OK Google. The active listening-even when the phone is “asleep” is great but my mom has called my daughter with this feature (on accident, a new form of butt-dialing!).  (http://www.engadget.com/2014/09/11/moto-x-review-2014/) The Moto X 2nd Generation will be as close to stock Android as a phone can get but will still have a little bit of the carrier bloatware.   This can deter some people but it is still less than the bloatware found on Samsung, HTC and LG devices.   The Moto X 2nd Generation is a great improvement that propels Motorola into the arena with the big boys. If you are looking for a device that is a great smartphone- then look no further and come test drive the Moto X 2nd Generation.
