Motorola introduces a 64GB variant of the Moto X

Motorola really wants people to see that its flagship Moto X smartphone is worth your time and attention. While the device won’t win any spec wars, its $349/$399 (16GB/32GB) price off-contract should be enough to entice those looking for a good bargain.
Since the Moto X doesn’t come with a microSD slot, those requiring even more space have been left to look for other options; that is until now. Over the weekend, Motorola added a new 64GB model to the Moto X family with a price tag of $449.
For comparison, an off-contract 16GB Samsung Galaxy S5 will cost you $649 on AT&T, while the off-contract 32GB HTC One (M8) costs $669.
The off-contract Moto X is available for use on a number of U.S. carriers including AT&T, Republic Wireless, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Verizon Wireless.

It was recently reported that Motorola will close its Moto X facility later this year due to poor sales. The facility at one time had 3,800 workers, but now just makes do with 700. Motorola’s new owner, Lenovo, will move production of the Moto X (and future Motorola smartphones) to China and other countries with low-cost labor.

I've heard this argument before, and it's mostly bunk.

In a lot of cases, the mSD card is as fast or faster than the internal memory. Most phones have marginal I/O performance.

Claiming you'll notice a difference in real world use is just false.

I wholeheartedly agree that you should never just take someone's word for it. So here is my source:

That's the ONE phone on the planet with great I/O courtesy of a innovative file system NO other OEM on the planet is using in smartphones.

Not to call you a cherry picker, buuuuut....
