    Default I need your opinions please!

    I'm on Straight Talk, that being said I'm looking at either the Nexus 5 or Moto X. I literally cannot pick which phone to get. The only negatives I have have for each phone are. The Nexus 5 is to big for my hands, but k could get used to it. And the Moto X doesn't come with a color scheme I want. (I know sounds rediculous) but if I'm going to buy a phone I want it to be mine. I'm very picky. But both of these phones are great and I honestly need some opinions to push me in a direction.

    Get the Moto X. I'm not sure what you mean by a color scheme that you like, but the Nexus 5 only has 3 color options. The X has a lot more, so any color scheme you can get on the N5 can be had on the X

    I just returned a Moto X to republic wireless. But Not for anything with the Moto X but the republic service just wasn't working for me. I will be getting another Moto X on Solavei which is just T-Mobile sevice but cheaper. The Touchless Controls and Active Display Notifications were simply the best new features I have had in a smart phone in years. The performance was amazing with the display being smoother for motion, just made games awesome.

    How about the camera? And battery life?

    Well what I mean is that I went to the website to customize the phone and I wasnt impressed with the colors at all. The two colors I like Orange and The blue that the Carolina Panthers have aren't even close to viable options. All the other colors I can't put up with haha. And plane black phones are getting old to look at to me at least.

    If I had to choose I'd go all black or all white with either red or blue accents.
    Either way, you get better options than with the N5

    Battery life is better on the X, camera is slightly better on the Nexus

    Battery life was great a full day with above avg usage. My normal usage is light so I got 2 days easily. The camera imo was better than avg with the nexus 5 beating the Moto x here but not by much.

    I'm still running Gingerbread. So there are a ton of apps that my phone can't handle and won't even let me download them because its not compatible. Theres no way to update this phone unless I root. And I'm not doing that. Its the price I paid for not learnig more about straight talk branded smartphones.

    Its a good lesson to learn! But if updates are important to you then Nexus 5 might be the way to go! However Moto has done a good job so far. Just the Nexus 5 will have better update support in the long run if you do not plan to root and flash custom ROMs.

    Sometimes I hate having so many options haha. I guess at this point it will come down to which on feels better in my hand. I have small man hands so that's a big issue. If the Nexus 5 and its 5 inch screen fits good I'll take that otherwise I'm going with moto x. The way I see it is the moto x will update the same software as the nexus but it will take a week or two longer which I'm ok with waiting.

    Sounds good and like a fair plan. The Moto x does look pretty nice. I won't lie! Let us know what you end up going with.
