Motorola Moto X is available to buy in UK
Motorola Moto X now on sale in UK
The Motorola Moto X was announced way back in August last year, but it has now finally gone on sale in the UK after months of waiting.
Phones4U are the first to plonk the Moto X on sale and it comes in two colours. The black version will also be available from other retailers, but the company has been given the exclusive rights to sell the white version during February, March and April.
The cheapest deal on a contract is for £25 per month which gets with unlimited texts, 600 minutes and 500MB of date and the Moto X itself comes free. Alternatively, you can pickup the smartphone SIM-free for £389.99 from Phones 4U.
One of the standout features of the smartphone is that it can be used almost entirely hands free. It uses the voice controls from Google Now and expands upon them. No longer do you need to launch Google Now first, you just say ‘OK Google’ and off it goes. You can check the weather, make a call, set an alarm or pretty much anything else.
One point we need to mention is that the lack of customisable features with the UK version of the Moto X. In the US, by using Moto Maker users can choose different front, back and button colours , and can even add a custom signature to the reverse, but alas as we say this is not available in the UK - although Motorola are hoping to bring it to the UK in the future.
The Moto X comes pre-loaded with Android KitKat (4.4), has a 4.7 inch 1280 x 720 screen (316 ppi), dual-core 1.7 GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, a 10 megapixel camera and a choice of 16GB or 32GB of built in storage, but unfortunately there is no micro SD card slot.
We are currently undertaking our Mototorola Moto X review which will be posted in the next day or so.
