    Default Eligible for upgrade tomorrow...

    So as the title states, I am eligible for an upgrade tomorrow and was considering the Moto X. At this point would it be better to wait for something different or just?

    I'd get the Moto X. Best phone available at the moment and the X2 won't be out for a while

    You could wait it out. Woodside, moto CEO, said they have a couple phones in the pipeline for new year. We don't know what those phones will be but a 5 inch could be in the works.

    would depend on what your using now, how happy you are with it? If not happy but money is not a problem, I would be tempted to go with a Moto G and wait it out. That being said, the Moto X is the best phone I have ever owned

    I would plan on getting a Moto X, but at this point I would wait until after next week to see what is announced at CES. There is always something new coming along, so waiting for the latest will keep you from ever upgrading, but on the other hand something could be announced that may make you have second thoughts.

    Of course they have more phones in the pipeline. They always have more phones in the pipeline. Those phones may not release until summer or fall, though.

    Wouldn't expect anything significant until late summer. Feels like Motorola will just be adding backs (the other woods, maybe more colors, carbon fiber?!) to the current Moto X options.
    Motorola Moto X (212.55.26.ghost_verizon.Verizon.en.US, KitKat 4.4.4) - Motorola Moto 360 (LWX48T, Lollipop 5.0.1) - Motorola Moto G (210.12.41.falcon_cdma.Verizon.en.US, KitKat 4.4.4)

    What other devices have I had? Here's my phone timeline.

    I agree, no contract moto G if you decide to wait.

    But, if I were you, I would get one of those bamboo back Moto X's or a nice custom from moto maker if you prefer. It is probably going to be awhile till Motorola comes out with another cool phone, moto X2 or whatever.

    Time is ripe to "get in" in my opinion. I have owned sever blackberries back in the day. Original droid. HTC windows phone 7, iphone 5, HTC droid DNA, galaxy note 2.

    I liked all of them. I love the moto X however more then any other, And I have owned it for a couple months so the newness is gone.

    It is precious to me, GOLLUM!

    Well I'm kind of conflicted in a few different ways. Right now I'm using a E4GLTE on Sprint. The phone works, but I have had problems with it. So I'm definitely leaning towards getting a new phone, but am also thinking about going tmo off contract. I'm probably over thinking all of this. I'm just not sure what I want to do especially after I paid for the early upgrade for this phone and being burned on it.

    I'm pretty sure there will be something cooler by 2015, but if you're like me you want something now. The MotoX is one of the few devices which caused me to upgrade when there was absolutely nothing wrong with my phone and no reason to get a new one (with 4 lines I'm pretty good at frequently finding a "reason" to justify a new phone). I continue to be quite pleased with the MotoX compared to what else I may have done

    Unless you want some gigantic 5" phone (or bigger), get the Moto X. Best all round phone available today. I have been 100% completely satisfied with all aspects of this phone.

    sure did.. but they are future products mainly wearable computing... I dont see any device coming for the next 6 months..

    Moto X2 and G2 are something to expect but they are predicted to come Q4 2014

    It depends on what other phones you are considering and why. If you are debating only between the Moto X and a future phone that is yet to be released, I say go with the Moto X now. With this, you have two possibilities. One is that the Moto X completely satisfies you and you don't care about the new phones when they are introduced. The other possibility is that you get the Moto X now and then want something that comes out in the Spring. You can sell your Moto X and get what comes out in the Spring in that situation. This way, you get rid of the phone that you have now that is causing problems for you and you have low risk of not being satisfied in six months either way.

    Moto X or Nexus 5. I am on Sprint, have both, and the X seems to catch LTE better.

    I agree with the better radios on Moto's. I have the Note 3 on TMO, added the unlocked Moto X to my TMO arsenal and did notice better signal on the Moto X. Love my Note 3, but it's fun to rock a smaller, but worthy swapper when needed.
    There is no place like 127.0.0.1

    Agreed. I really wanted to get a Moto X, but I'd have to pay off my S4, then sell it and buy the new phone. I think I'm going for the VZW Moto G for $99 off-contract
    Hopefully it scratches the itch

    It's a prepaid phone, though. You can't use it on a postpaid line without having it active continuously for 6 months on a prepaid line.

    Using it as WiFi only, my S4 is still going to be my daily driver
