    Default makes a great first impression!

    I was shopping at the mall yesterday and I walked past the att store and saw the moto x just staring at me. So I walked in and took it for a spin.

    I was so focused on trying out the active notifications and I kind of succeeded in doing so. Unfortunately the att display software kept interrupting! But I got around it slightly and figured it would be something I'd REALLY enjoy! The whole phone felt as snappy as my new nexus 7 and my HTC one. I was seriously impressed. Couldn't really tell how it felt in the hand cause of the security thing, but the build look really nice and seemed like it had comfortable curves.

    Boy do I wish I had the money to get this! Anyone want to convince me to do so?? I easily get talked into things! Especially from myself! Which is bad.

    How about the screen difference? Are the active notifications really that awesome?

    I think the thing I am intrigued by is the fact that that phone seems to have as close to Vanilla Android as possible and it's not a Nexus. I haven't had a chance yet to see the device, but based on specs and screen shots, it already is one I would love to test drive.

    I probably won't use a phone without it. Begging in business meetings frequently this feature gets a lot of use

    Yes that's a major plus too. There aren't 4 different tabs in settings, or a million different toggles in the notification bar and there was such minimal bloat as well!

    That's all I've been seeing people say. It just seems so convenient. And it looks really nice and simple too. Which is how I like my phones. How is battery life going?

    For me battery life has been excellent. I've unplugged for about 16-17 hours each day and go to bed with about 30% left with moderate usage.

    I did the exact same thing. Loved the One! Love the X as much but has active notifications and moto assist which give it the edge for me.

    The store I went to yesterday had a floor model. So looks like they have them at Verizon stores now.

    Battery life has been great for me. I haven't killed the battery yet in two weeks of owning it.

    I'm getting 10-12hrs total use but I'm a heavy heavy user. So 5-6hrs screen time. This is a huge step for me coming off of the nexus 4.


    Oh I need to add that is with bluetooth, GPS and wireless on. If I did that with my N4 4hrs of screen time would of never happened. This moto is really a amazing phone.

    Wow sounds great! That's a bit better than my One. I don't know guys, I'm pretty much convinced! I love my one though and the development for it. That would be a pretty big switch...

    Then stick with it and quit obsessing over other phones. While you're at it, sign up for a free developer account with HTC (takes all of two minutes), get your unlock code, unlock the boot loader, and install a custom ROM. I recommend Android Revolution HD Google Edition. You end up with the build quality of the HTC One, the high end hardware, the beautiful screen, Beats Audio, Zoe, and the "pure" Google experience. Before you say that you would rather not go that route, ask yourself why you went Android and why you chose the One. If you picked Andoid for its customization, than do it. Or you could just get a new iPhone.

    Get off your high horse man. I've been rooting and unlocking for years. I'm trying to figure out if another phone is worth getting. That is all.

    could you please post a pic of 6 hours of on screen time on the moto x's tiny battery..

    its battery advantages are more about off screen.

    I have both the HTC One and the Moto X. The Moto X is nice and has some nice features but I edge it out the HTC One is a bit better. I been using both phones heavily as well.

    How's the difference in screen and speaker quality?

    The screens on both look nice but the HTC One screen is more clean. The Moto X has a blue tint to it if you move the phone side to side esp when your surfing the web or reading a book. The Moto X speakers are LOUD but the HTC One has beats audio and is really really good. Great bass sounds. Both phones would be the same size except for the front facing speakers on the One which makes the phone a tad longer.

    I think the HTC ones screen has spoiled me for any other phone. But I'm sure after using the moto x for a while you get use to it right?
