Should We Care About Lacklustre X Phone Specs?

Anthony Muzonzini

The Motorola X Phone is perhaps one of the most hyped smartphones of the year but it seems as if those that were looking for it to be an absolute monster in the specs department will be left disappointed. The question though is that does the hardware of the phone really matter all that much?

It seems as though many of us were living in a fantasy land when we thought that the Motorola X Phone would be a behemoth of a phone is terms of the actual specs. The reality though is rather subdued. The phone's specs are more on a par with a Galaxy S3 and word on the street is that the actual phone is more of a mid range device rather than a top tier one.

Those that have managed to get their hands on the phone say that the battery life seems to be pretty good. The camera, while not up to par with say the HTC One, is still a pretty good camera. The Phone is pretty strong and it is coming in with Android 4.2.2 installed.

The people who have used the phone say it is less about the hardware specs on the phone but more about the experience of using the phone that matters. The phone has a lot of sensors inside it which include an accelerometer, compass, barometer, gyroscope, magnetic, humidity, temeperature and RBG light. These are the type of sensors in a Galaxy S4 and the phone reportedly makes good use of the sensors too. The bottom line is that Motorola wants users of the smartphone to enjoy using and it and those that have used the phone have had a lot of good things say about the experience of using it.

Is the reported good experience of using the Motorola X Phone going to be enough to persuade you to purchase the phone?
