They say you never forget your first cellphone and it’s true. I still remember the day my dad brought it home. I was an anxious 13-year-old, desperate to get my hands on one of those cool portable devices that would allow me to send instant text messages to my friends and talk to them without my mom going “hello, who’s on the phone? I neeeeeed it.” during the middle of a conversation. This cellphone was long overdue; by now everyone already had one and I had been begging for my own for months on end. My dad finally came home with one of the most popular phones (at least amongst my eighth grade class), the Motorola V360, and it was perfect.
Fast forward three years, and I upgraded to what was the sleek, incredibly thin and even better looking Motorola Krzr. It was THE phone to have. And while I had a blast with my flip phones, sharing many conversations, winky faces and “wut r u doing 2day?” texts, soon the era of smartphones came, and well frankly, my relationship with Motorola was put on the back burner.
I had a great relationship with Blackberry, before I took a bite of Apple and switched to the iPhone 5 which I’m currently using. But today I’ve been fortunate enough, thanks to Rogers, to reunite with my first cellphone love: Motorola.
The Moto X is available only at Rogers, and offers touchless control, an active display and a quick capture camera among its list of impressing features. What does that mean?
“Talk to it, and it learns your voice. With a twist of your wrist, it becomes your camera and gets the shots you’d otherwise miss and it tells you what you need to know—even when you’re not touching it.”
See for yourself:
Now I’m very much attached to my iPhone and I’ve always been an Apple person, but I’m ready to switch over and take on the 60-day Moto X Challenge (aka a challenge I’ve presented myself with where I’ll be completely dedicated to this Moto X). Change is not something I usually enjoy, but with this device, it’s one I’m welcoming with open arms and ready thumbs! I’ve only just begun to play with this new toy, but one thing’s for sure, the camera quality is stunning and I can’t wait to capture memories. I’ll definitely update you at the end of my 60-day challenge to let you know if I’ll be sticking with the Moto X or switching back to the iPhone 5.

I definitely had both of those phones growing up too! Oh, the memories!!
Haha they’re probably the most common flip phones ever! Compared to what we have now though, it’s like caveman technology. 😛
Oh, Naomi, this post took me back. My first cell phone was a Nokia (back in my day, flip phones were the fancy, expensive ones. But my dad had a Motorola V360 (his last flip phone before he moved into the iPhone world), and I thought it was the coolest, sleekest phone around.
Can’t wait to hear what you think about the phone!
It’s crazy how fast technology has developed within the last decade! So far, so great with the Moto X! It’s going to get some getting used to the android running system, but my favourite features so far are definitely the 10 megapixel camera and Google translator app.
Ahhh fond memories My first was a Nokia 3310 – it was invincible, and, still works to this day 😉
