LOL @ Moto!!

Will it have a xenon...? If yes than you can "capture the moment"; but there is nothing new (808 PureView, Lumia 928, Lumia 1020...)!! :P

I don't see what all the slagging off is about, at no point did any press release say this was going to be the flagship phone spec's wise, so people shooting their mouths off regarding this are pointlessly chatting rubbish.

The device is aimed at the budget ground with good enough hardware to run day to day apps, if you spend all day on you're phone playing games fine get the s4 or one swiftly followed by a PC or console to play proper games on.


Seems like a great device for people on a budget ( students / low paid jobs ) its capable to play movies surf the web play you're standard games and brows the web at a suitable pace.

You don't need 20XX's octal-core CPU to do these things that most normal people do.

If its priced well like the N4 it will fly of shelves and 20quid contracts.

I love how Google previously complained that Moto's droids weren't keeping up, only to releases their own with hardware that's easily 18months old.

They should make the phone in such a way that by the 4th twist of your wrist it should be able to change the specs!!! HAHAHHAHAHA

Guess what? Time to move to Windows phone OS as there's much features which are less crappy than this. Android will die soon. Yawn

If the previously leaked photos showed correct exif, then it will have better than 1/2500 shutter speed. Not sure how much better though :)

Beware of the king of copying.

It seems as attractice as the girl it presents it...
Ok, i admit it, i had high excpections on this.
When we first heard of it, it was rumored to have stellar specs and features.
Now the specs seem updated and i really doubted the features could compensate.
So this how Motorolla planned to compete with Apple?
They have added an always on mic, exactly how M$ did with the always on kinnect cam and mic, they must be taking a sponsosrship deal from NSA to monitor citizens and update prism...
Are there still chasing Siri here? And anyways, this only aims at US and UK clients, just like M$ and Apple, i am sure that language support will be horrible...
And why would anyone want to have his screen awoken by the those push notifications when having the phone in his pocket? Why aste battery and risk an unlock?
The vibration and led light should be enough, sound notification at max, but NOT turning on my screen!
Press anywhere to make fotos? I guess half of the photos taken will be by accident, you will twist your hand to put your mobile in the pocket, the camera will automatically open and make photos where ever you touch it...
And losely zoomed photos, as you no longer can choose the focus point, as it seems
Really really dissapointing...

What's new in this phone?? I do not see anything to crave for this phone. There is much more functionalities in the existing Xperia Z, Htc One, S4 and Lumia 925. Some people are so partisan to google that if google brings old wine in new bottle then those people will say "Wow, what an invention"..fooh!
