    I've had my MotoMaker customized Moto X for a few days now and I must say that its a very nifty device.

    It feels really good in the hand and is light but not too light. It also feels solidly built.

    The screen is FINE. No it does not have pixels to spare but everything looks sharp and vivid on the 720 p AMOLED screen.

    Battery life is VERY good with mixed use I have been averaging 19 plus hours a day with 15% battery life to spare.

    The active display is a very nice feature that I use constantly without fear of a massive battery drain.

    The active assist works very well in the car as does most of the voice commands and control. If I had to gripe it would be about the voice command to activate Google hands free services. 'OK Google now' is just too hackneyed for my tastes.

    Performance overall is buttery smooth and snappy with little to no hiccups along the way.

    The camera is what it is. The few pics I've taken are not bad and not great but what do you want? A great camera with your so so cell phone or a great phone with a so so camera? Can you have both? Sure but I'm not sure you'd get that in as nice a package as the Moto X.

    Overall a very capable phone with enough software and hardware innovation to keep things interesting.

    Good job Motorola.

    For me, active display trumps a led.

    I tried loving a Moto X and that's why I've been banned from the Verizon store.

    I used to think the presence of an LED notification light was a non-negotiable on a smartphone for myself, but I haven't missed an LED at all while using a Moto X.

    I agree I really wish it had an LED. I prefer LED to active notification believe it or not.

    I love the with active display I only have to swipe once to unlock/turn on the phone. Can't do that with LED.

    Anyway, you can enable the green LED with root.

    There actually is an LED in the phone but you can only access it if you root the X. It would have been nice if Motorola Gave users the option though.

    I thought it was hardwired to only show low battery, and couldn't be used in any other way, even with root. Is that not true?

    And I never realized how much that I missed the LED until I got rid of my Moto X

    If it helps you don't have to use the word "now" anymore.

    As a stickler for accuracy, that statement should read, "I've had my MotoMaker optioned Moto X for a few days"

    "Custom" means a one-off part, and nothing else like it. A factory cannot add "custom" parts unless they make each one specifically for an entity and it is different from all others they have made.

    I was completely tweaked out with Lightflow and different colors/vibration patterns/notification sounds so I could always tell what was waiting, even from across the room. I decided to give Active Notifications a solid chance and haven't looked back at all. Simpler is better for me today.

    Active notifications is so much better then an led. I understand you can make your led what ever color you want for sms,email ext but nothing beats rolling over in bed looking at your phone and it lights up and you can see what you have going on without ever touching it.

    Have you used active notifications? It really is a nicer feature than LED notifications. Well, in my opinion.

    Yep I use it and I like it but for me an led is a more reliable way to see notifications when my phone is sitting on a table.

    Yup, active notifications on my Moto X since Thanksgiving. Still miss the LED. (although mine wasn't very bright, and was either on or off. The bright blinking one on my husband's galaxy S4 is a little annoying at night.)

    I wonder if it makes a difference that I am nearsighted. I can't see anything on the phone when I roll over in bed, except that there's a dim light that goes on and off. I can read the notifications during the day, when I am wearing glasses, but it feels like it demands my attention in a way the LED didn't. I have to actually pay attention at just the right moment, when it is on. The LED was just sitting there, glowing whenever I happened to look at it. It may still be the glasses -- unless I look directly at it when it is on, I can't make out what it says.

    I don't understand how people prefer a blinking led, which provides pretty much no info, to an on screen preview of your messages that is unobtrusive and saves battery. Its like saying you'd take a horse and buggy over a sedan.

    You might try reading some of the posts from people who miss the led. You might learn why they feel that way. That doesn't mean you will agree with them, of course; these things are quite personal. But you could gain that understanding you lack.

    The only way in which I miss the LED is that I can't see the charge status of the device when it's on charge. I could set different colors for different notifications but could never remember which was which so ActiveDisplay is SOOO much better for me, except for seeing the charge status.
