What sets Moto X apart

The X8 chipset of Moto X consists of the two application processing cores, four graphics processing cores, a ‘natural language’ core and a ‘contextual computing’ core. The latter two cores are what make Moto X different.The natural language and contextual computing cores work together to give Moto X its highlighting feature – touchless control functionality. Just say a command and the phone will do it. For example, say “Okay Google, open Facebook” and the phone will open the app, without you even lifting a finger.Moreover, the touchless control function is always listening; therefore, you can say a command even if you are not using Moto X and it will automatically wake up to perform the action. It even works in noisy environments, says Motorola, and we are looking forward to testing this feature when we get the phone.
