Moto X system dump and default wallpapers are now available

August 4, 2013

Moto X

The covers have been finally taken off the Moto X, and a massive system dump from this device has been posted online! It`s 442MB in size, and contains some really cool wallpapers, among other software features. You can grab the 7MB .zip file of 16 wallpapers here, or you can find the entire system dump over at the Android Central forums. What do you think of the Moto X so far? Are you impressed? Disappointed? Not sure what you think? Let us know on the comments!

    Not disappointed, because I never expected anything big. I wonder why the Nexus 5 rumors haven’t started yet (now that the Moto X is “yesterday’s news”), BRING IT ON! :)

  • TomSix404

    I think the MotoX is what Motorolla needed. I like the touchless/voice commands and the design of the phone, but I still prefer my GS3.

    Hi! Well, I love this new device, looks gorgeous, I can change the back shell, 10 mpxs rear camera with Clear Pixel technology. However, very sad with my SGS3 GT I9300 with some troubles, terrible lags. This end of year, I’m going to sale my…terrible phone, but first of all, I’ll do a factory reset. Great article and best regards! ;)

      The back shell is NON-removable. They stated this on launch. Once you buy the phone in whatever color and case you chose, thats it, you are stuck with it. AT&T will be the only carrier to offer a customization tool BEFORE you buy the phone. Other carriers will be getting black, white, and one other color for the time being. Their customization tools for sales will come December. Before then, what you buy, you get, you keep, no exchanging to another MotoX because you dont like the color and another wasnt offered at purchase time.

        I’ll stick to my nexus for now ty

        OMG…really? :/

    • Cristi13

      Remember to back up your data before resisting and if this doesn’t work go to a repair center. The s3 isn’t supposed to have “terrible” lags. I wish you good luck.

      • alfreduran

        Hi! I know…however, very thanx! :)

  • Arun

    I’m not sure about this, but would it unlock possibilities to port the notifications system to other amoled phones?

    • lil bit

      NOKIA N9, the original.

      • Arun

        wasn’t it the symbian 3 phones that had those features first?

  • Stephan Sch

    BTW, maybe I’m blind or misunderstood something.. But where is that link to the wallpaper zip?

  • prateek sisodia

    It has to be a hit…..the mobile industry is in a needless specs war and they are doing nothing to improve battery life and new inovations. Motox brings the war to this front. :)

    • lil bit

      What was that? You LIKE lower specs for the same price? Midrange phones must have midrange price, Moto X is bad for consumers, thanx God it’s not worldwide. And lucky for Americans that this competes with iPhone and not in high end, if it starts to eat into sales of android flagships the customers are getting less for their money.

      It’s in the consumers best interest that X flops. Use that Texas factory to make something Americans can be proud of instead of a bunch of redundant back covers.

      • T.J.

        What makes this a midrange phone? The advanced sensors that make it completely hands-free? The ultra low power chips to increase battery life longer than most phones? The large amount of customizability? Or the optimizations that make this phone faster than the other high end android flagship phones?

        • Cristi13

          The thing is today’s flagships are very fast and have great battery lifes. So moto x doesn’t really make a difference in these aspects. I agree with customizability and voice activation. But moto x suffers from: the price that is unjustified and the low availability.

          • T.J.

            The s3 and Nexus 4 were fast and had good batteries. Does that mean the HTC One and S4 Don’t matter? This is faster and has a longer battery life. Isn’t making a phone “better” kind of the point?

          • lil bit

            What, s3 and Nx4 good batteries? Both are bad, esp the nx4 had terrible battery. S4 and Xperia Z both have much better battery than those two.

            And moto x is not any faster than Xperia SP in most benchmarks. There’s no miracle here, just useless voice gimmick to compete with iPhone/siri.

      • Cao Meo

        if you want higher specs, buy LG G2.

        Moto X offers unique choice and that’s great. And the price will come down quickly too,

        • lil bit

          Then tell me, honestly, was CHOICE what you were longing for, was that what you felt was missing from your life, and Moto X makes you complete, due to choice of color and boot animations?

          Maybe something wrong with me, because none of those was a problem for me.

          What about card slot, how would that be for a CHOICE? Don’t need? But you need 2000 visual customization options? Seriously?

    • Cristi13

      Yes, this is why today’s flagship have so much better battery life than their predecessors. Motorola does something about battery, but not with motox, but with RAZR maxx. And how much do you know about these “needless” specs, probably just numbers. What about the processors architecture, cache memory, drivers? Unfortunately not so many people know and begin to talk out of their asses -_-

  • Ruperto

    I was no waiting too much, and I think it’s too expensive!

  • Willie D

    For the on-contract price, I think its a big disappointment. Too many devices TODAY are up to TODAYS specs and are better phones, even with their OEM UI’s than the Moto X with its last years specs and TODAYs price. On-contract, this device should have been $49.99 and $99.99 at the highest. Off-contract a device like this that costs almost as much as the new iPhone is just silly, it should be $300 and $350 TOPS! Biggest disappointment launch from Motorola since the Motorola SLVR.

    • Cao Meo

      This phone is way better than iP5

    • T.J.

      I would expect that price is just for the carriers. Look at the Nexus 4 at T-Mobile. Right now it’s going for $432 and that’s almost a year after it was released on the Google Play Store for $299. Google will have it for much cheaper, I suspect. Also, how is it not up to today’s specs? The screen? Give me a break.

  • Luka Mlinar

    Who in their right mind would want this wallpaper?
    BTW “here” is not linked.

    • AnGeLFaCe77

      you are a fool

  • Gordon

    there’s no link to the wallpapers in this article. Kindly edit :)

  • mark simis

    What are the rumored specs for the nexus 5

    • Dalian barons

      5 ” 1080 p snapdragon 800 3000 math battery lte

      • mark simis

        Thanx man, hopefully it’s the same price range as the nexus 4.

  • paxmos

    So, we have to register to get a wallpaper on this site?…screw driver…

  • EvenInTheDarkestHour

    Thanks for the wallpaper…

  • tottyrice

    thanks for the wallpaper link… the red, white and blue looks nice on my atrix hd

  • AnGeLFaCe77

    This device is the best ever. It will feel better on the hands, fast and pretty cool features.

  • chris pinkston

    I like this phone. So far I do anyway, will hold full opinion till performance has been reviewed. Either way not for me but I think its a good android for the masses. Good start on showing a more pure android experience to the main stream. Hope Google keeps pushing in this direction with more powerful phones later.

  • chris pinkston

    All this talk of specs specs. None of you even know how this phone performs real world yet. Its like you think if its not quad core it shouldn’t exist . I do think that maybe it should have been maybe $50 cheaper.. Maybe the 2 special processors are countering the price of not having 2 more CPU cores.
