Are the Moto X specs competitive?

Episode 1002 (1:15:32)

Taylor from Corona, CA

Taylor called in to say that he really likes competition, and the Moto X will really give the consumers a lot to consider when purchasing a smartphone. Leo agrees, and while many tech pundits are complaining about the specs being only mediocre, he thinks the phone performs very well. People care about software and performance, not specs.

Someone in the chatroom asked if this new Motorola phone comes with the usual bloatware from the wireless carrier. It doesn't have "bloatware", according to Leo. However it does have a couple of small things that are installed to help users migrate data and optimize the phone when in certain use cases (such as meetings, sleeping, or driving).
