I'm a mom with a crappy phone. This didn't bother me until I realized how many great pictures of my kids I'm missing out on. The phone I have now takes terrible pictures. So I either have to remember to lug my camera along or just skip it. But all that's about to change. As a Christmas gift to myself, I'm buying the Moto X phone and sharing with you why it's the perfect phone for busy parents. Plus there's tons of ways to personalize it!
1. The camera
The last straw for me was a recent trip to visit my sister. We took the kids to try out the new sledding hill and she got some great shots with her phone and I got nothing.

2. The Features
The new Moto X has a 5.2-inch HD display and a curved frame that fits comfortably into your hand. It also lets you do more using just your voice (and when do you ever have a free hand?) It works with apps like Facebook, Twitter, Google Play Music, and Pandora. It's even aware of where you are - in the car, in a meeting, or in bed and adjusts to your preferences accordingly. You can name it whatever you want and ask it questions. This is probably as close as I'll ever get to having an assistant.
3. The Customization
If you go to MotoMaker.com you'll find an online studio with thousands of ways to design the phone to reflect your personal style. Make your phone unique by customizing colors and deciding on all the details like the front, back, accents, memory storage, and wallpapers. For an additional $25, you can even choose to make the back leather or wood. The leather comes in cognac, navy, black, or natural and is sourced from Horween.
You can add a name or short message that is laser engraved on the back of the phone.
4. The Price
While I want a premium smartphone, I'm not prepared to pay a premium price. The Moto X is available to $99 with a two-year contract and $499 without a contract.
