    Wish I could, but I'm holding out for the Moto X2/+1. Already have a JUMP! upgrade available

    I'm seriously considering this addition, but not to replace my N5.

    This looks like a great deal. The Moto X and the Nexus 5 are the best deals going today. I'm very happy with my Nexus 5, but I notified my adult daughter about the Moto X.

    My guess is that these top-tier phones selling unsubsidized (off-contract) at reasonable prices will be very popular. Having an unlocked phone that can be used on multiple carriers is a big advantage.

    Think I will wait for one+/one.

    I was thinking about it for my wife but the 720p display is just a deal breaker. Granted anything above 1080p is over kill and just waists batteries time but it is just hard to get past the 720p barrier in my brain even if she wouldn't even notice.

    It is a great phone, I am just not sure it is a wise investment this close to the next and possibly last Google inspired Moto phone to be announced.

    Nah, they probably are just trying to get rid of inventory before the Moto X2/One+ is announced and the X is an after thought.

    Now the new one will have my eye, but I love my N5 so it will take ask s lot to get me to switch.

    I am facing the same dilemma. I have the option of buying either the Moto X today for the promotional price or the Nexus 5. Can anyone please tell me if there is a big difference in the speakers on both these phones. From the reviews I've seen it seems that Nexus 5's speaker is pretty bad as compared to Moto X's for audio playback. If someone has used both these phones can you please give a comparison. thanks!

    I can tell you for certain the MX speakers are much better and louder.

    Do you think it's a software issue on part of the N5 that could be fixed in future updates?

    They already did on 4.4.2. Could they do it again? Yes. Will they? Obviously we won't know until then, but I wouldn't bet on it.

    Unlikely, unfortunately. If speakers is a deciding factor for you, go with the MX.

    Moto X has surprisingly loud speaker and charity is holding up well too. It's not as rich and full as HTC One but I can't ask for more. I literally have to keep it at lower volume sometimes (asked to be considerate )
    My friend's N5 is way below standard- expectations for a flagship device. I don't know how to rate it, but it's very weak.
    If you are using speakers a lot, it's really a deal breaker. Just like the camera on Moto X for those who are snapping all the time.

    The Moto X speakers are exceptionally loud. I doubt a software update would get the N5 anywhere near the MX. Loudest speaker I have ever heard

    Did not know about it until today! Wonder if they will extend it since it was only one day in length?

    Probably not. They've done this a couple of times already though, and with their next smartphone being announced next week, I would imagine they'd do it again eventually.

    Are you guys sure that the to be announced phone is the X's successor? I am a little sour because I just bought the X LOL. Oh well trying to keep up with the latest always is probably a futile attempt. I am happy with the X though,

    Well no, but it makes sense. It's been almost a year and if they don't sell now they will lose tons of potential customers to the M8/S5/G3.

    True on all counts. What's important now is that Motorola does something I suppose. I rather like what they are trying to do.

    The Moto X sale is pretty good. But still, it isn't a better deal than getting a Nexus 5.

    Sent from the Samsung Galaxy Note 3...yeah, it's spectacular.

    I ordered one. All white with blue metallic accents, 32GB. It was to good of a deal for a nice, customized, unlocked phone. And they tossed in a free Moto Skip. Saved $160 in total.
    I already have a Nexus 5 but I figured that's a good price for a extra phone that I can switch between when I'm in the mood.
