    Do you store a lot on it or keep it free and stream?

    Smooth as the Corning glass front and back. No problems with my 16GB N4 other than the occassional random restarts that every one seems to encounter.

    My Nexus 4 is still really smooth most of the time. Every now and then it'll stutter, but I'm amazed at how smooth it's stayed. This is my first Android phone at the iPhone's level of quality.

    Basically stock Android with a better GPU then the N4, very cool features like the always listening and ActiveDisplay but the next One seems pretty bad ***.

    Dual camera on the back. S801 bigger battery and same general materials and design.

    Sounds cool. And yes it is a better GPU.

    Just curious, how are you amazed? It has a quad core processor and 2gb of ram. I don't think this thing will slow down anytime soon

    Horror stories about Android not being able to keep up. They lied.

    Nexus 4 is a great phone and will stay smooth for a longtime, especially with ART enabled.

    The Moto X's SOC, which is labeled as Snapdragon 400 S4Pro, is closer to the 600. While benchmark don't mean everything, it bench slightly higher than the Nexus 4. Since the Nexus 4 have quadcore there are a few occasions it is faster, such as installing apps while on ART, which is intensive. For the most part though, the Moto X edge by a bit, especially for gaming since it doesn't suffer as bad from thermal throttling like thee N4 (unless you install a custom kernel). But the difference just isn't big enough if that is your upgrade incentive.

    Moto X is a much better phone if you take rooting and flashing roms out of the equation.
    -Better screen (it's amoled, but has RGB matrix and well calibrated so no oversaturation, good white level).
    -Superb speaker, it will blow away the N4 speaker and many other single speaker phones.
    -Superb battery life, I get over 5hours on scree on time before completely draining the battery.
    -Motorola quality signal reception / call quality.
    -Overall the phone is just very well optimized, and have that touchless control feature.
    -Factory nano coated to be water resistant.

    My recommendation is don't buy the Moto X if you already have the N4 and happy with it, the performance upgrade isn't big enough. It's camera isn't much better. You can consider the Moto X however, if you have poor signal / call quality or poor battery life with the N4. The Moto X is great in these areas.

    I was considering between the N5 and Moto X, but I also played with other phones like the HTC One and LG G2 as well. I settled on the Moto X when I actually held it in the hand and felt how small it is while delivering all that features. The size and form factor of the phone was a big factor for me.

    If you are interested in rooting and flashing roms at all, I don't think Motorola is the way to go. It's not a problem if you have previous experience with other Motorola devices, but definitely require more reading if you are new to it comparing to working with a Nexus. They have too many securities in place and it's still possible to hardbrick a Developer Edition if you flash the wrong thing.

    The Moto X doesn't have a Snapdragon 400 processor. That's the Moto G. The Moto X has a dual-core S4 Pro with a better GPU than the Nexus 4.

    It is more closely tied to the Snapdragon 600.
