Moto X’s Moto Maker Tips the Scales In Its Favor – We’ll Prove It To You! #MotoX

What makes the Moto X different than any other phone on the market right now is the ability to customize it and have it custom built for you. If you buy your phone in-store, you’ll get a redemption code to create your phone at home. It’s pretty stinkin’ cool, even for those that might be initially skeptical.

Using the intuitive Moto Maker, you can choose the front color, back color, accent color, welcome message, background, memory, color charger, and even add a signature. Other accessories like a matching case or headphones are also available to purchase at the same time. With the phones being assembled right here in the U.S. your Moto X can arrive at your doorstep in less than a week.

Moto X Moto Maker – Designed by Me/You

After a looooooong time, I finally decided on my options. Thank goodness for the option of saving your design to work on later. Well, I picked the colors pretty early on and just got stuck on the signature part. I couldn’t figure out what I wanted mine to say so I ended up leaving it blank. I think it’s so pretty and the welcome message that pops up (when I power it ‘on’) makes me smile every time.

Frans also had the chance to design a phone. At first he was hesistant and figured that he’d just stick with black. However, after playing with the Moto Maker for a bit, it didn’t take long for him to change his mind. He even came up with a signature within a few minutes. Guys and girls definitely shop differently . . . He’s pretty proud using his phone and sometimes I catch him showing it off here and there 🙂

Munchkin got the black/black one passed on to her. It was kind of funny how anxious she was to start working with it. Sadly, before we got a good case for her phone, she dropped it on the sidewalk and it cracked. Not good but a bit surprising it got damage that much from just one fall (we’ve dropped other phones and they only had minor scuffs).

The customization does not stop there though. Android has so many options that allow for further choices on app and widget placement, functions, and more. I’ll share some of my favorite ones in another post.

For years, my family has been iOS-only but the Moto X was the catalyst to switch my whole family over to Android. There’s definitely a learning curve but it we haven’t looked back since! The only downside is that the camera is still not up to par for my blogging needs . . .

It’s too bad that Munchkin’s phone cracked so soon. Reminds me of my first smartphone. Had it for three years with a constant reminder of my clumsiness starting back at me from week one. I dropped it on the sidewalk and knicked the corner of the plastic, not the screen. Just hope there isn’t a way for her to cut herself on that crack.

How cool that you can actually customize your phone I love that!

I’m with Colleen and thought the customization was neat.

Hopefully they’ll upgrade the camera as they make new models for this. It’s a cute design with that curved shape.

I like all the different choices you can customize it with. I’m another one that switched from an iPhone to Android and surprisingly I’m not sorry. I love my Android phone, while the interface has taken some time for me to get used to, it’s zippy fast compared to my 4S AND there are so many more free apps to choose from.

Wow, Moto X Moto Maker would be great for gift giving, especially for teens and young adults. I’d buy one for myself too. Love customized items! I’d go all out with some bright colors!

I just purchased the iPhone 5 for my girls and I wish I would’ve seen this one sooner.

I love that you can make it your own. Very neat.

I’ve used that phone & loved it but I didn’t get to customize it- that makes it even better! I LOVE the turquoise one you made. Bummer about it breaking so easily though!
