Moto X arrives early in UK stores

X marks the spot

When Motorola announced the Moto X was finally coming to the UK we were given a release date of February 1, but it turns out it's already here.

High street retailer Phones 4U is already peddling the Motorola Moto X with contract, PAYG and SIM-free options available.

The Moto X arrives with black and white colour options (Phones 4U has exclusive access to the latter) though at £389.95 it doesn't exactly offer the best value for money.

Worth it?

Your £400 will get you a 4.7-inch HD display, 1.7GHz dual-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 10MP camera and Google's latest operating system - Android 4.4 KitKat.

Now that doesn't sound too shabby, but you can pick up the more powerful Nexus 5 (with a bigger, higher resolution display too) for £299, while the HTC One Mini and Galaxy S4 Mini are also fighting for attention in the Moto X's price bracket.

John (Twitter, Google+) got his first phone aged 12 and since then he's been fixated on all things mobile, churning his way through a multitude of handsets, tablets and operating systems. Signalling his arrival at TechRadar by becoming a Guinness World Record holder in his first week (for the highest score on Super Mario Bros using a giant controller), John hasn't looked back since.
