Earlier this month, Motorola announced the Moto X would be out in the UK at the beginning of February, several months after it made a successful debut in America, and hot on the heels of the Moto G. While 1 February was touted as the release date, the phone has shown up slightly early, and is now available to buy.
The phone can be found on Phones4U’s website in both black and white colour schemes, the latter being exclusive to the company. It’s being offered on several tariffs, including those with 4G LTE connectivity, and it’s free with a contract.
The Moto X was Motorola’s first major smartphone release after it had been acquired by Google, and it boasts an almost standard version of Android KitKat, along with some very special voice controls. Activating the Moto X with your voice doesn’t even need the screen to be on, as the device is always listening out for an “OK Google” command.
Other specs include a 4.7-inch, 720p screen, a 10-megapixel camera, Motorola’s X8 processor – actually a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon with a clever companion chip – and a 2-megapixel front facing camera.
