Moto X durability report – wooden edition (Video)

Advertisement

An initial hands-on. A full review. Comparison after comparison. An Editorial Roundtable. A special-edition Pocketnow Weekly. An After The Buzz. A durability report. And now, a second durability report.

Say what you will about Pocketnow; you’ve got to admit we’re pretty thorough.

This followup durability report on Motorola’s 2013 reboot isn’t just for kicks, though; we’ve had many folks ask us for an update to our Moto X coverage ever since the wooden editions landed, with several specific calls for another durability pass. As the lone team member with a wood-backed Moto X, the honor fell to me – and given how very different the ebony variant’s construction is from the soft plastic of its predecessors, I felt the followup was definitely one worth doing.

So if you’ve been wondering whether it’s safe to tote your naked Moto X wood variant about town, enjoy the brief addendum to our durability report below … and if you’ve been wondering whether the Moto X is still worth the investment after all these months, check out the After The Buzz embedded at bottom for your convenience! Finally, if you have personal experience with the wooden Moto X and its ability to weather the elements, please drop them in the comments below.
