The best smartphone you can buy is also priced $100 less than other flagships. Say pleased to meet you to the second-generation Motorola Moto X. For $99, you get a sleek-looking phone with a highly customizable design and a gorgeous 5.2-inch 1080p display. Beneath the sleek exterior lies a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 that offers buttery smooth performance. Based on our testing, the Moto X is faster in everyday use than the Galaxy S5 and other Android phones that use a skin on top of Android.
The new Moto X’s 13-MP camera is also improved, offering faster performance though not the best color accuracy. Compelling features like Moto Voice (think Siri, but completely hands-free) and Moto Display (think smartwatch convenience, without the watch) make this handset the best Android phone of the year and our top pick overall.
