Apparently, it is the first smartphone to carry a ‘Made in USA’ tag. The research firm said that the phone’s overall production cost is just 9 percent higher than Apple’s iPhone 5 and 5 percent less than Samsung’s Galaxy S4.

The findings come as a surprise as the labour cost of producing one Moto X comes up to USD 12. By assembling the phone in Texas, Motorola is able to provide its customers with custom designed phones in a time frame of 4 hours. The phone went on sale last Friday.
