Motorola Moto X (2nd gen) goes live

The  first Moto X was a highly desirable phone which no one could buy outside of the U.S (for some time) the phone had unique features such as voice commands which later watered down to our well known "Ok Google" command . The phone , at launch was a bit expensive for what it had inside and some of the specs such as the camera were a bit so-so . The new phone , which costs $499 unlocked and $99 on contract in the U.S ,comes with new back panels that include leather , wood and fabric ones which cost about $25 per pop . The new phone also includes some major aesthetic changes and it has  two front facing speakers in front . The phone , like to old model , features touchless controls with command phrases like "ok google now" , which can launch your task without lifting a finger . The camera is also said to be much better (mainly because it is 13MP now) and the camera algorythm is more polished compared to the last gen . The phone comes with a Snapdragon 801 processor , a larger  5.2" Amoled display and a splash resistant  body , but the 32GB onboard storage does not come with a MicroSD card option like the one found on the new 2nd Gen Motorola Moto G. (stay tuned for more)
