GOOGLE OWNED Motorola initially launched its Moto X smartphone in the US last August, with the firm announcing just this week that it plans to bring it to the UK in February.
This means that despite being new to the UK, some of the Moto X's components are starting to show their age. Among these is the Moto X's dual-core 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. The use of the older chip puts the £380 Moto X a generation behind the cheaper £300 Google Nexus 5, which features a more powerful quad-core 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.
Despite its lower power processor the Moto X does have some positive points. Key selling points include its cutting edge Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat mobile operating system, above average 10MP rear camera and dust and water resistant nano-coated chassis.
