Moto X

Firm says the Moto X is 'a step above the rest'

It's no secret that plenty of people are loving their Moto X phones. I'm one of them. The "less is more" philosophy and tight software integration make for a pretty unique experience among all the different smartphones out there, both Android and otherwise. ABI Research has just torn the Moto X apart and done a complete analysis of it, and they think a big part of it is because the Moto X is the clear leader when it comes to innovation.

They say things like the form factor, the "much underrated" display and the always-on voice commands and notification system are pretty spectacular feats in power management, and "are a few of the attributes that set the Moto X a step above the rest."

Specifically when compared to the iPhone 5s, the Moto X uses about 2.5 times less battery power to do the same things, and has 20 percent more pixels to account for. To the folks at ABI research, this is more innovative than a new casing, new colors or a fingerprint sensor that they mention was originally a Motorola idea on the Atrix. 

Around here, we use all sorts of different phones. We like some more than others, but feel that any of the latest are a great choice. But when someone comes out and says why one is better than the others in such a bold manner, we're going to tell you and let you decide.
