Even though the Moto X is not the most powerful smartphone out there, you have to admit that it’s a pretty attractive device. Besides packing a couple of cool software features like always-on voice commands, Active Display, or Moto Assist, on of Moto X’s main strengths is the highly customizable design. You know, that “Design It Yourself” thingie that is available exclusively via Moto Maker.
Unfortunately, for the time being, the AT&T is the only US carrier that allows its subscribers to customized their Moto X in Moto Maker. Making use of Motorola’s motomaker.com website you can choose the color of the front panel, back lid, accents, wallpaper (the one that ships with the smartphone), and even the headset color, and build your own AT&T Moto X. According to a new report, the Moto Maker will no longer be an AT&T exclusive, as it’s on the verge of arriving to T-Mobile and Sprint, as well.
The infamous leaker @evleaks tweeted a couple of days ago that “MotoMaker opens up to T-Mobile customers on Friday.” Except from letting us know that the T-Mobile users will be able to us Moto Maker as of November 8, the tweet doesn’t reveal any further details. But the same leaker informs that the wood back options are on their way, too.
Anyway, @evleaks is not the only one who has information about Moto Make’s debut at other US carriers. The folks at Android Central wrote on Monday that the Moto X customization options will arrive at Sprint on November 11.
It looks like US Cellular and Verizon will be the only carriers in the States left without Moto Maker. While it is believed that Verizon will bring Moto Maker to their Moto X at some point, there’s no word about US Cellular allowing their users to customized Motorola’s flagship.
Of course, there’s no way to verify the veracity of the reports, therefore we are advising you to take them with a pinch of salt.
As a refresher, the Moto X boasts about a 4.7-inch HD AMOLED display, 2 GB of RAM, 16/32 GB storage, 2,200 mAh battery, 10 MP rear-facing camera with ClearPixel technology and 1080p@30fps video recording support, and Motorola’s custom-made X8 mobile computing system, which is basically a customized Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC.
Are you still considering the Moto X as an option for your future smartphone, or did the likes of Nexus 5 or Galaxy Note 3 dampened your interest in Motorola’s flagship?
