Thanks to high-end specs, a relatively "clean" build of Android, and Motorola's improved reputation, the Moto X 2014 (AKA Moto X Second Generation) is fast becoming a favorite among Android power users. And now that it's been out in the wild for a few weeks, the modders are lining up to write the usual custom ROMs and tweaks. To help facilitate that, the folks at Team Win have brought their custom recovery to the new flagship.

Motorola's always-on voice control system is a little less special than it was a year ago, but it's still a neat feature. It's still got some room to grow, though. The recently rebranded Moto Voice app is improving a bit today. Specifically, it should reduce some of that lag when initiating commands by voice.

When a new version of Android is announced, one of the first questions on everyone's mind is "when will my device be getting updated?" Fortunately, Motorola has moved towards complete transparency and providing timely updates over the past couple of years, and with the announcement of Lollipop it is giving details on what Moto owners can expect in the coming weeks.

Once Android 5.0 L is officially released, we intend to bring this latest upgrade to many of our other Motorola devices, as well.

The original Moto X was a very well-reviewed phone, but it just didn't sell as well as Motorola and Google had hoped. It deserved more attention than it got, but the smartphone consuming public can be a fickle beast. That's why this year's Moto X makes a few changes to appeal to a wider audience. It's a little bigger, a lot faster, and has a more premium design.

This approach is rife with benefits and a few drawbacks, but one thing is certain, this is one of the best smartphones ever created.

The new Moto X is out, but that first generation version is still pretty good. Motorola has stopped selling the device directly, though. All the unsold units have to end up somewhere, and it looks like a cache of them is on eBay right now. You can get a black or white unlocked Moto X for $249.99. That's $150 less than the last regular price for the unlocked Moto X from Motorola.

Reviews for the new Moto X have been pouring in over the last month, and for the most part, critics are once again decidedly optimistic about Motorola's new flagship device.

While the display has grown to a potentially controversial 5.2", much of what made the original so loved is intact. Front-facing speakers bring a feature much demanded by enthusiasts, along with a bump to a full 1080p AMOLED display (likely Samsung-supplied).

For people living in the large swathes of the US where Verizon Wireless is the only real option, your chance to get the second generation Moto X has arrived. The handset is now available on the carrier's site for $99.99 with a two-year contract, though the price differs with other payment options depending on color. The site is showing the black one available for $24.99 a month with Verizon Edge or $499.99 outright.

Just like the original Moto X, AT&T customers were the first ones to get a taste of the new model on the customization site Moto Maker. But it looks like that carrier exclusivity isn't going to last anywhere near as long this time around: the official Verizon Wireless Twitter account said that Big Red versions would be available starting tomorrow. Just like the AT&T version, the on-contract model will cost $99.99 with a two-year commitment.

Update: We're getting a few reports that this initial build (213.44.1) may be a soak test, despite the fact that our tipster isn't part of the current soak program. If that's the case, it may be a few days to a few weeks before regular users see the OTA update.

"Better late than never" is almost never said with real sincerity, and such is the case with the latest build of Android for the T-Mobile Moto X.
