Moto X (2014) durability report: life on a leather phone (Video)
It’s not every day that a phone comes with a leather backing option. But Motorola has gone ahead and done just that with its flagship this year, adding to last year’s already-out-there wood and plastic options in a unique way. One immediate concern voiced by skeptics was the possibility that the leather may not hold up over time, while others suggested that the material would age beautifully just like a good leather watchband. Now that we’re a few months in with our own leather Moto X device, we’re ready to let you know just how well it’s aged in our full Moto X 2014 durability report video.
Humans are, well… humans. And that means we make mistakes occasionally, including the occasional dropping of a phone. With a different back material comes different results when your device hits the pavement, so we also go over what exactly happens if your phone takes a spill. Another awfully human thing is finger oil. Especially with phones, it can get bad, so you’ll want to hear our thoughts on that as well.
