2k screen has advantage of when you zoom some high pixel image or zooming in google earth and maps. It will appear sharper.

Probably it will cost 40k for 32GB model. Because Moto X (2014) 16GB costs 32k and it is 499$ unlocked in US.

Nice specs, looks damn ugly.

It's a masculine phone. Very strong and powerful like DuPont Kevlar is used in the body that makes it four times stronger than steel. Also it is water resistant.

What about updates from Motorola? I heard it officially now a lenovo company, no longer Google. So should we expect some different UI, bloats and poor updates like other lenovo phones.

Nope acquisition isn't complete but If it is released under Moto branding;it's guaranteed to receive updates for next 2 years.

I don't get why manufacturers are focusing so much on goddamn hardware specs. I mean even the most demanding games on the playstore run fine on a budget device. What else do you need the hardware for?? It is really overkill. Rather the manufacturers should focus on the user experience in the same way apple does. But they lack a Steve Jobs I guess. Such powerful hardware and it still ends up as a toy because when real work gets to be done, people still turn to real computers. Now if they start selling docks at affordable prices and optimize Android more, then perhaps it would make sense

Couldn't have said better. The idea for a dock is pretty good where you dock the phone to a docking station and leverage the power of the phone as a PC. Just like what Ubuntu Touch developers are trying to do.

Nothing much the manufacturers can do in terms of software, they depend heavily on Google. Apple is different, both the decisions around software and hardware are taken by the same organization, so they're able to provide better integration and user experience.

All the android phone manufacturers can do is to add their own skin on top of vanilla android, that sometimes ends up ruining the user experience!

Yeah fragmentation is a big problem with Android. But still, even the nexus devices are sold in the same way as other droids. They always tout the hardware specs. Software isn't something that I have seen showcased in Android devices(except a few) . Apple always focuses on the ux.I mean don't get me wrong, I am not an apple fanboy but I always admire their marketing tactics. If marketing and selling more devices is the sole reason for increasing hardware specs every year, I would rather want they focus on the software more, try to sell the user experience rather than hardware. Of course I would buy an android over an iPhone any day but the thing is that despite having top of the line specs, Android is pretty inefficient in using that hardware. And buying high specced phones itself is pointless. A friend of mine recently bought a note 3 neo. Now he regrets buying it since all he does is Facebook. He doesn't even game that much.

Yeah I was pretty excited when I first read about Ubuntu touch. Seems it hasn't taken off much. Project Ara +Ubuntu touch is the smartphone of the future imo
