Odd, no review I had ever seen said theMoto X was glitchy and buggy. The biggest complaint was the pictures taken from the Moto X were hit and miss. Indications were that the bad pictures were a software problem and not a hardware problem so that can be fixed with an update.

Motorola is selling clear cases for the Moto X, so that kind of invalidates your point.

The good news is that it appears that touchless control is seperate from the main OS, so that updates for that feature will come direct from Play Store.

I'm on VZW so playing the waiting game for now as I won't switch over.

I did have the opportunity to speak to the manager of our small AT&T store next to Starbucks. He's geared up and ready to roll out the Moto X when he get's a floor sample and inventory which he says will be in the middle of next week (around the 27th) He sites slow availability due to our location. Still he was very 'pumped up' about selling the X. Told him I'll be over to at least see it, hold one and play around with it to which he replied, "I'll have one for you, no problem".

I plan on using the Moto Maker tomorrow when I order mine.  Today I seen an article that stated that what they made was not the exact color of the back that they made online, i'm kind of curious has anyone else heard of that?  I don't want to order mine one color with high expectations and then get it and it is not what I saw as I was designing it.

So the touchless control is available on the play store and is not a Motorola specific software app?  So that touchless software could be ran on other devices?  Meaning those with say a Samsung device could be doing the "okay Google now"???  Sort of takes away in my opinion the need to get a moto x if you are after that touchless software...  I am sure there could be a ROM made that has the listening feature... That would be the only hangup in my opinion.


According to Droid Life the app on Play Store is only for the newest Motorola phones (Moto X and the three DROIDS).

Now it does look like Open Mic+ looks to add the always listening feature to all Google Now devices.  But keep in mind that the Motorola phones are optimized with two cores that allow that function to operate with minimal battery drain.
