As we’ve all seen — or most of us, at least — many respected tech publications, including LaptopMemo agree that the Moto X is one of the best phones, if not the best Android phone to date. It’s been disputed, but usually leans towards Motorola’s favor recently. It’s the perfect representative of the platform, like Nokia is to Windows Phone and the iPhone is to iOS.
But, this upcoming $20 NFC (near-field communication) tag from Motorola seems a bit off.
The purpose of the tag is for it to exist on your person, as key of sorts, which would help you bypass the lock on your Moto X by a simple tap. This would be an alternative to face unlocking, patterns, codes, or regular passwords. It sounds useful, but would immediately tumble if it was stolen along with your new Moto X.
