Last week, Motorola unveiled its upcoming Moto X to mixed reviews from tech enthusiasts in regards to the device’s internal specifications. When compared with current and upcoming high-end smartphones, the Moto X may not be the pick of the litter, especially with its premium price of $200 with a 2-year contract, but Motorola is defending the device’s specs.

Motorola’s chief executive Dennis Woodside recently spoke with AllThingsD in regards to the Moto X, and turned to the topic of its specs. “We made some different choices from our competitors,” Woodside said during the interview. “We were thinking about the total user experience.”

Woodside admitted it’s been interesting to hear feedback from tech enthusiasts ever since the Moto X launched on Thursday and points out some of the device’s features, such as its display, doesn’t matter as much to the everyday user. “Beyond 720p — unless you have a vision of a hawk — you aren’t going to notice much of a difference.”

What do you think? Would you rather have a device that makes full use of a 720p display, or do you absolutely need the highest resolution possible on your mobile devices?
