When there were rumors that Google and Motorola were working on the project, a lot of curious followers were excited of the outcome. Out from this correspondence came Moto X. Basically you can talk through Moto X, you can text your friends through it and you can play apps through Moto X. What then sets it apart from other smartphones? Here’s a look at some of Moto X’s cool features.
You can control the phone through speech
By using its Touchless Control feature, you can actually use the Moto X by speaking to the phone. You just need to give a command that starts with, “OK Google Now” and then follow it with your command.
For example you can command Moto X to search the internet about a particular keyword, call a friend and make a reminder. What’s amazing about this feature is that you can still give the command even if you are 12 feet away from your phone. You won’t worry about the phone being activated by other users. This cool feature is set to work only to the owner’s voice unless of course you have the same voice with the owner.
The Moto X rests
One of the common reasons why batteries won’t last long is because phones don’t activate their battery-saving feature. There are people who use their smartphones constantly by looking at the reminders, posting a status in social media or sending a text message to a friend. These activities are battery-consuming. With Moto X’s cool feature called Active Display, it will show the current time by fading in and out. If you get text messages or an email, you can actually read the messages by pulling it up and down. This feature is called Active Notification. While the screen displays the notification, the rest of the phone is dead, making it efficient on battery life.
Moto X and our television
Google came up with a streaming device that allows you to stream Google Play, YouTube and NetFlix directly from your smartphone to your normal TV. This is made possible through the HDMI dongle. When Moto X came, it’s no surprise that it can do the same. It has a Wireless Display feature that allows you to display whatever is in your phone and project it in your TV screen. However, you have to use a different connection standard to make this work. Wireless Display works in Miracast that some TVs already have. If you don’t have it yet, you can always buy a dongle to make your TV work.
You get 50GB free
Since this is a Google product, you will receive an amazing 50GB free from Google Drive. You can now store files directly in this storage cloud and you can access through your different devices such as your tablet, smartphone and your laptop. HTC gave out a similar privilege and partnered with DropBox. When you buy an HTC phone, you also get 50GB free storage from DropBox.
