More recently, the company’s devices mostly been Verizon exclusives in North America, but we are glad that’s not the case with its most recent flagship.With the Moto X, Motorola has taken a rather unorthodox approach towards designing a top-shelf Android smartphone.

To top things off, the Motorola Moto X will be built in the United States with an unprecedented set of appearance customization options.
