"The device boasts active updates, which translates into display notifications on the screen rather than a vague flashing LED that doesn't really tell you anything."
Awesome. So instead of blinking a little LED to tell me the phone has gotten a message or something else of note, it leaves the screen lit up, wasting my VERY valuable battery life on these phones?
"Moto X owners can activate the built-in camera with two quick flicks of the wrist."
The phone getting jostled in my pocket activating the camera sounds awesome. Bye battery, hello pocket pictures!
"Once it's launched, you can snap photos by pressing anywhere on the touchscreen rather than hunting for a dedicated shutter button"
And how is focusing accomplished?
"It was previously leaked that the Moto X will ship with a 4.4-inch display (1280x720), 1.7GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 8960 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, 10MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing camera, and of course Android 4.2 Jelly Bean."
Lower res screen, slower cpu, same ram, lower MP camera, and same OS as a Galaxy S IV. Unless it is like a Maxx type with super battery life, I can't imagine it being any kind of contender for a "Superphone"
