    Has anyone confirmed the screen size of the Moto X? I was assuming it was the same as the Nexus 4 but have been reading conflicting reports.

    evidence seems to point twords 720x1280 4.5"-4.7" screen. my bet is on a 4.7" just from the pics iv seen of the Moto X near a measuring tape.... let me see if i can dig up the link for ya.

    really though nothing we know about the Moto X is confirmed for sure, this is all guess work from random leaks.

    From EarlyMon in the Pre-Release Thread:


    Interesting - and I agree that the brand has eroded, I think they know it and that's why they started the whole rebranding process last month.

    However - once again - the Forbes article begins with this premise, and the bold red letters are mine -

    1. This is not slightly older chip technology. The CPUs are Krait 300s and those did NOT appear until this year, the Krait 400 hasn't appeared in any phone yet. The GPUs are Adreno 320s, the Adreno 330 hasn't appeared in any phone yet.

    2. Again - find me any phone before this with an RGB 720p AMOLED display.

    Again, from the article -

    Once again, let's do some Pentile/RGB math and see what holds water, and use correct numbers.

    RGB = 3 subpixels/pixel

    Pentile = 2 subpixels/pixel

    Moto X subpixel density is 316 x 3 = 948 subpixels/inch.

    SGS4 subpixel density is 441 x 2 = 882 subpixels/inch.

    If they could have made a 720p RGB AMOLED last year, they would have done it.

    They couldn't so they didn't.

    They made it this year. It's actually new and improved.

    So forget the Apple hype about ppi and Retinal displays for just a moment and ask yourself this -

    How many points of light per inch do you think is more - 948 or 882?

    If you said 948, then you just chose the Moto X over the SGS4 for screen resolution.

    LoL

    Lies, damned lies, statistics and the financial blogosphere.

    They're creating the self-fulfilling prophecy for the Moto X to not be strong or worthy in the market.

    Those however, are my opinions based solely on being actually familiar with the technology. :D

    Statements 1 and 2 by Forbes - totally, completely and absolutely debunked. :rofl:



    So I will take a 720p RGB display over a 1080p Pentile any day of the week. 4.7" is ever-so-slightly bigger than the Gnex's 4.65" display, in a smaller form factor. I really look forward to seeing this thing in the store and putting it through its paces.
