Since competition and comparisons are the orders of the day, compared to the likes of Samsung, Sony or Apple, Motorola Mobility may not have that big a following. However, that hasn't dampened the company's enthusiasm a single bit and, in terms of the growing Indian market, the company is now set to release its next big offering after Moto G, dubbed Moto X, next week.
After creating some noise in the Indian market with the Moto G launch at highly affordable price points, it now looks like the company is all geared up to launch Motorola Moto X in India by next week.
As we mentioned before, this is a high-end device compared to the Moto G. The device, basically a rival device to Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One, features a 4.7-inch 720p HD AMOLED display.
The Moto X is also supported by a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB/32GB of on-board storage, 10MP rear-facing camera, 2MP front-facing shooter, and lastly 2200mAh battery that's fitted inside. Apart from that, the Moto X runs Android 4.4.2 Kitkat out of the box.
But if you are already excited by the features the device is offering, wait for what's to come next. Apparently, the device has a number of hidden features that not many know about. These are the kinds of features that can make your overall experience with the phone even more worthwhile.
But which are these features and how (or where) can you find them in the phone? Let's take a closer look at the top 5 among all these hidden features that are actually worth it.
If Moto X is to make it big in the domestic market, like it did for the U.S., it has to promote the device's touchless control interface (and move it from the "hidden" category). Basically, the touchless interface is quite an impressive thing to be present in the device.
Users will just need to head to settings and select Touchless controls to configure it. This will enable users to take instant actions for making calls, sending texts and even search Google for a query with just their voices.
Moto Connect Feature
This one is a pre-installed app and allows users to pair the phone to other devices such as PC or laptop. Doing this will allow users to send and receive calls and texts on a computer (rather than the phone) using the Moto Connect Chrome Browser extension.
You will find the Moto Connect app in your phone itself, and it will also give you a step-by-step tutorial on how to work with it.
High Dynamic Range (HDR) Camera Mode
The built-in HDR camera for the Moto X is one feature you should check out. You just require to slide your finger from the left side of the screen to the right while using the camera, and that will open the settings tab for you. There will a HDR option on the top of that tab that you will need to enable if you are looking for great still shots.
This will be your best option if you are looking to improve your images while taking advantage of both high and low exposure shots.
As easy as it gets, for taking a screenshot, users will just need to long press power and the volume-down button at the same time. And although this is the most basic thing that remains common among all devices Android, still it's easy to forget about.
Using Trusted Devices
To make full use of the Trusted Devices feature, users will need to setup and control the feature under the settings - security tab once the user has setup a passcode or an unlock pattern. This makes the device unlockable for anybody when you are not around.
