Question – Does Moto X 2014 have Corning Gorilla Glass Protection?

Answer– Yes, the display is protected by Gorilla Glass 3 on the display.

Question – How is the Display of Motorola Moto X?

Answer – The 5.2 Inch super AMOLED display is good in quality, though not the best that we have seen. If you like AMOLED displays, you would love this one too. If you have been steering away from AMOLED displays because of an overall blue-ish tint, more prominent on white background, this one won’t impress you. The display sharpness and viewing angles are good.

Question – How is the Build Quality?

Answer – The Metal frame, slim bezels, thin side edge, rounded back – all add to its appeal. The handset is very sturdy as was evident from numerous bend tests a while back. Our review unit has a leather back cover, which demands extreme care. It is prone to scratches and once you accumulate a few, you realize how much more prominent they appear.

Question – What comes inside the Box?

Answer- 1.15 Ampere charger, good quality headphones, Data Cable, User Guide, Warranty card, Service center list, SIM ejector tool

Question –What size SIM card is supported? How is the call quality?

Answer –  You can use one nano SIM card. Call quality is excellent. Cellular video calling is not supported.

Question – Does it have LED notification light

Answer – No, It does not have LED notification light. The active display however makes up for it. You can wave your hand over the display and peek at notifications.

Question – How much is Free Storage?

Answer – Out of 16 GB about 10 GB is available at user end. You will be better off with 32 GB variant since storage is not expandable.

Question – Does it support USB OTG?

Answer – Yes, USB OTG is supported out of the box. You will need a file manager to access files from pen-drive.

Question – How is the Camera Quality?

Answer – The 13-megapixel 1/3.06” sensor with f2.2 aperture lens, dual LED ring flash and 4k recording sound like a great leap ahead compared to its predecessor. In practice however, we didn’t find it to be as big of an improvement. You can read our Moto X Camera Review for full details.
