Moto X

I know it's not the baddest Android out there but I like it!!! I like how you can customize the outside of the phone off the Motorola site, I like the bare bones android sfw without all the bloat ware (Samsung Touchwiz), and I LOVE the touch less voice control where you can wake up the phone with just your voice and tell it to do anything, and I LOVE how Motorola is able to max their phones batt life. Getting ready to pull the trigger and kick my iPhone to the curb. Thoughts?

Battery life is only extended if you're only using active notifications.

If you're on-screen time is the same, it'll be the same battery usage as a GS4, Gnex, HTC One.

+1 to Dino's post. Wait till Q4. Still have the LG G2, Note 3, and whatever Nexus might get announced. Moto X will drop $100 if you don't like any of those by then.

Buy a phone off contract ~$600 and you'll most likely be able to sell any of the recent released phones for $400-450 on swappa, if something else comes out.

The Moto X is an excellent designed phone though. Just realize what they are claiming about great battery life is really never having to wake up the phone and use it (Active Notifications). Any phone will get great battery life when it sleeps all day.

I'm on VZ and their no-contract thing is 24mos to pay off phone and it needs to be at least 6mos and at least half paid off to get another phone. The kicker..... You gotta give them back the phone!!! Fck that!!!!! Can't even ebay it for more!
