Though this cellphone is very thin it's not even close to being one of the thinnest cellphones out there, with a thickness of 0.41 inches.

Motorola packed the with a completely amazing 4.7" display, and a 1280 x 720 (HD) resolution, which makes all images and videos look vivid and colorful. Its display uses AMOLED capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

The Motorola Moto X is equipped with a fast 1700 MHz Dual-Core processor, packed into a Motorola X8 (Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro MSM8960) system chip and a large 2 GB of RAM memory. Collaborating with graphic rendering, it also uses an Adreno 320 graphic processing unit clocking at 400 MHz. A great point of this phone is its large 64 GB internal storage memory and although it doesn't include an SD memory slot, it is still enough to store hundreds of applications and even the largest games currently available without thinking about how much storage capacity is left.

This phone has two cameras, a 10 megapixels back facing camera and a 2 megapixels front side camera. It also captures 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 60 fps. This device also has some good characteristics: auto-focus, flash, geo tagging and HDR mode.

This phone features a 2200 mAh huge non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this cellphone with an impressive battery duration. This phone has a reported 240 hours stand by time and a 13 hours talk time. An issue to take into account is that this phone's battery isn't removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to get older, although with this big battery you will probably replace this cellphone before it happens.

The features WiFi connection (which can be provided to other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) high speed internet connection and also HSPA+ data connection, a lower speed 4G type or the fastest 3G connectivity, using HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies.
