Motorola X Phone benchmarks reveal disappointing specs

Under: Mobile Phones
Date: May 12th, 2013

Over the last few months there have been a whole host of rumours and speculation regarding the so called Motorola X Phone, and now some benchmarks have appeared that are apparently for the handset but in many Android fans eyes they may not hit the mark with disappointing specs.

Towards the end of last year we first started to hear that Motorola and Google were supposedly working on a smartphone and a tablet device, and more recently there has been talk of a smaller version of the X Phone being released as well.

Now though some benchmarks have emerged that hint the device is nothing more than a mid range smartphone which may have impressed users last year, but will be a little short of the flagship devices that are becoming available now.

The handset that is going under the codename of Ghost also has some specs that appeared via the benchmarks that include a 4.7-inch HD 1280 x 720 display powered by the quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor running at 1.7GHz. The benchmark also lists the screen resolution as 1196 x 720 so it suggests the presence of on screen buttons that is now a growing trend.

There is also an Adreno 320 GPU, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, and 32GB of non-expandable on board storage. This information goes along with previous statements from the company that suggested the first batch of products in the pipeline weren’t overlay impressive.

Are you a little disappointed in these specs for the Motorola X Phone?

    No2 thats abloomin shame. Wasn’t the X Phone supose to be a cutting edge device that blew the Nexus devises out of th water? Maybe this is one of the lower end models that’s sbowing up?_?

    Motorola always been a comical joke anyway. I knew the Galaxy Note 3 was the device for 2013.

    • squiddy20

      You don’t know one single concrete thing about the Note 3 you idiot. How can you “know” it “was” the device for 2013? Your wording implies it has already been released. How delusional are you?

      • Richard Yarrell

        You are an A-clown without question. You make me laugh real hard Galaxy Nexus owner. As you know i own the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 today and are well aware of what’s next for the Galaxy Note 3. As usual you haven’t brought a new product since 2011 when your crappy Nexus first launched and didn’t make it to your crappy carrier Sprint until sometime in 2012. You are the biggest idiot on any thread I still don’t know why you insist on commenting when you never have any of the devices you leave comments about. The Galaxy Note 3 will arrive with the Exynos 5 Octa processor clocked at 2.3ghz Cpu and will have the Mali T658 Gpu 4 cores A-15 and 4 cores A-7 big.little architecture. It will also have a 5.99 inch unbreakable 1080p screen, 3gb of ram, 3.0 front facing camera, 16meg camera, and 4200mAh battery. Can you openly afford a device of this stature of course not. We own Samsung products are well aware of the next big thing we live for that. You are comically the biggest clown on the web and it’s pitiful you even exist.

          “As you know i own the Galaxy Note 2 and Galaxy S3 today” Except you don’t. You claimed you sold the S3 in order to get the Note 2 countless times, all over the Internet. You can’t even keep your own story straight. Pitiful.

          “As usual you haven’t brought a new product since 2011 when your crappy Nexus first launched and didn’t make it to your crappy carrier Sprint until sometime in 2012.” Congratulations. You’ve managed to totally contradict yourself in this one sentence. If the Sprint Galaxy Nexus wasn’t available till April 2012, then how can you even possibly claim I haven’t “bought a new product since 2011″? Go back to grade school, moron.

          “I still don’t know why you insist on commenting when you never have any of the devices you leave comments about.” If that’s the case, then why are you commenting on an article about the Motorola X Phone, and device NO ONE has actually held? What a hypocritical idiot.

          “Can you openly afford a device of this stature of course not” Please. You brag about supposedly owning 2 *carrier subsidized* smartphones a year, and so far this year, haven’t bought a single device.

          “We who own Samsung products are well aware of the next big thing” Says the dolt who “knew” the US version of the S4 would have 3GB of RAM, a *flexible* 1080p screen, the Exynos 5 Octa, wireless charging, and “a pad” on the device to measure blood glucose/blood pressure levels. You know absolutely nothing. What a joke.

            you people are pathetic for actually arguing about this…..

        • Faisal

          Hahah, what a douchebag

    Thats probably why Google pulled away from it. This phone has been too overhyped!

  • Erik

    32gb non-expandable and s4 are real disappointments. Display resolution is ok.

  • Robert Jakiel

    S4 Pro is the age of Tegra 4, Snapdragon 600 and 800 as well as exynos octa is a huge failure. Motorola should just give up. The OG Droid and Droid X were the only phones they made worth a damn.

  • GalaxyS4Best

    I’ll be waiting for the LG Nexus 5.

    Motorola phones are crap.

  • Erik

    I think it is more of a commercial mistake by Motorol to release a mid-range device first. Usually, companies release a high end flagship device first to catch attention. Then, in the wake of the high end device, they sell a lot of lower end devices. It’s all about attracting attention and smart marketing. The hype around the device was good, but then a high-end device should be waiting at the end. Let’s hope these rumors are incorrect and that Google will surprise us anyway.
