So Motorola built a phone that's marginally smarter, slightly more comfortable, and a little bit more usable than most others. And while that may never displace Samsung or Apple, it's an important first step. This new Motorola is listening. Listening to customers who want their phones to feel more personal. Listening to critics who endlessly complain about battery life. Listening to an industry that knows the spec race is out of hand. And, perhaps most importantly, the new Motorola is listening to Google when it says solving people's actual problems, simply and beautifully, is the path to success.

The Moto X looks interesting, but I doubt it can handle the competition. Specifications do seem to matter in the shops, and the Moto X doesn't measure up. On top of that, how are they going to do the custom design thing in other parts of the world?

Yeah, below 5 inches you don't really need a 1920x1080 screen.

My HTC One has 4.7inch with 1920x1080. 4.5 might be able to use 1280x800 without losing sharpness.
Everyone calls this phone midrange now

Because of the specs and I am not talking about the screensize.
And this core hype on phones is just stupid. The perfect phone would have two really fast cores(like A15) that go to sleep once the heavy lifting is done(which is most of the time unless you play) and one core that does the rest(an A7 or something)

I often see 4 cores being used while doing something intensive like starting an application.
It is not like all Android software is perfectly tuned to use 4 or 8 cores.

I see my 4 cores being used more often on my phone than my pc.
