    One of the things that was leaked before the Moto X was launched was that it was supposed to have dual LTE antennas:

    Moto X to feature a dual LTE MIMO antenna, making it LTE-Advanced capable
    New Moto X Details: Moto Magic Glass, Laminated Aluminum Structure and Dual LTE MIMO Smart Antennas – Droid Life

    I've read every review I can on this phone, and nobody has mentioned this. So I have two questions:
    1. Does it actually have dual antennas, and
    2. If so, has anyone out there done any testing of reception or speed?

    If this phone does have significantly better reception than the competition, that's a big asset in it's favor to me. I still have crap reception way too often with my Rezound.

    Thanks.

    Wonder if the Droid phones will have that.

    Cool, thanks. I'll be very curious to see this tested. Moto phones usually have good reception anyhow, this can only help.

    I'm wondering that, too. The Maxx is on my radar, mainly because of battery life and the fact that it has 32gb of space, which the X won't have on Verizon for several months. But I kinda feel like if I'm going to get a phone that big, I might as well get a GS4 since it's cheaper and has a removable battery and SD slot. But I really like the light skin and notification features of the X and Ultra lines rather than bloaty Touchwiz.

    It seems that the answer to that question is a gigantic YES

    All of the new Droids or just the Maxx? It seems the tweet only mentions the Maxx.

    Now if Verizon could keep LTE service up all day, every day.

    I work in a Tech related field. Have been in a tec
    SouthEastern US
    So the extra antenna only makes it LTE-A capable? If so that will be of no use anytime soon in the States.
