    Hi Debashis,What price do you predict it will be launched at in the market. Any guesses.?Also, How much do you think moto 360 would be priced at, considering the ridiculous price of gear coming with s4 and s5.

    MOTO X (2nd Gen) will be a good phone to buy except for it's low battery and no external sd card support. :( Better wait for OnePlus One to launch in India. At least they would provide 64GB version at a lower price tag. I read somewhere about them, that they will be releasing in October or so. @debashis_sarkar:disqus Do you have any info. about this?

    Dear Proton,This is Debashis Sarkar the author of this article and I am not a Motorola marketing guy. So, the point of Motorola firing me, makes no sense. "I did not mention 16 GB as the name of the product or system." Which part of 16 GB do you don't understand? (BTW do you even have a smartphone? Because this is lame.) If you don't understand MP stands for megapixels in the age of smart cities again its your fault.And if I just said "Motorola is offering the features at an attractive price" then it would have sounded like an endort or Ad and NOT when I say it claims to offer. So, I know my job very well.This is a launch story and NOT a review. So, stay tuned for my review to read a critical story.I hope I am clear.This was really an interesting comment. Keep it coming.(Comment sent from a smartphone. Pardon the brevity and typos.)
