    Default Has anyone given up their S4 for the X?

    I have an S4 that I could easily sell on swappa to get the X. Im intrigued by the good reviews, better battery life, active notifications and a phone that I can text on with one hand. Anyone trade in their S4 that can offer their two cents? Thanks

    Didn't have my S4 long because I wasn't a fan of the bloat ware and lag that it had. Got the Moto X and love the phone. The extras the Moto X has are much more useful then what the S4 had.

    Gave up my S4 for a Moto X. The two phones aren't even in the same league. The X destroys it in every regard.

    I gave up my s4 for a ONE and the ONE for a Moto X so if that counts then yes. The x blows both of them out of the water.

    Im really pushing towards the moto x as well. I had a iphone 4s then htc one an now im stuck since my 14 days passed an my ones camera is faulty. Att sent out a replacement to fix this issue but i really doubt itll be a better camera since its widespread. So after the replacement comes in an its messed up as well (camera wise) what do i do? Sell the htc one an use the money to pay off the contract that was renewed an start a new one with a moto x or??

    I was going to go for a Moto X myself. I have an S4 and I played with an X in Best Buy and man I love that phone. The only thing holding me back is the Promise of a new Nexus. I hate touch wiz and want to get rid of this thing

    If you have to trade your phone a second time, that third phone can be a different model, they don't even care about price difference. Just make sure to bring it up...

    Oh i had no idea about that! Ok ill definitely keep that in mind. I love the One but because of the purple tint issue with pics an also having to press the power button to unlock all the time ,it pushes me away because the X seems more convenient with the notifications screen. But time will tell with these One replacements.

    By the way do they give you a return policy for the 3rd if it is a different new phone? Or once i get it its a done deal?

    I have an S4 and just bought the developer edition X (only because I need 32gb and that's the only way to get it on Verizon right now). Going to fire that up once it comes in and test it out. If I don't like it, I'll return it/sell it and keep the S4. But everything I'm hearing about the X makes me think I'll love it - I've been wanting stock android again ever since I had my Galaxy Nexus. I don't really even have a major problem with the S4, although I'm not a HUGE fan of TouchWiz - it does have a few hiccups here and there - overall I think it's a great phone, too. I don't think you can go wrong either way. Good luck with your new X!

    Yes, and my S4 was even running AOKP. Definitely worth the switch.

    I have an s4 Google Edition that I swap SIMs in with my moto x. It took several days to get used to the smaller screen, icons, and text etc.

    The moto x is great and I have used mine for almost two weeks and missed my s4 with its larger screen, bigger keyboard etc. It is also thinner and lighter. I also missed using Google wallet on my S4 GPe. Will run with my S4 for a few days.

    So no, not given up, but in addition to.

    You can always sell your ONE and pick up a Moto X off of Swappa or EBay. You should be able to almost break even.

    Just curious, why would someone be crazy to swap an S4 for an X? Just like to hear opinions as I'm about to do that exact thing.

    I tried using the Moto-X but although it's a nice phone my OLD eyes need the slightly bigger screen on the S4. I think the S4 camera is better and maybe I was doing something wrong but the driving mode didn't work with the bluetooth in my car. Maybe it's not supposed to work that way. IDK Also it doesn't have the top of the line specs but it works just as well as any of the top phones because of how they (Motorola,Google ) have optimized everything thereby proving you don't have to have the most or highest in every category to have a great phone.

    See funny faces...

    Anyway, in all seriousness, I have played with a few moto x phones in the last week. They feel and work pretty good, but the camera on my GS4 is way better, and I like the bigger screen of my phone.

    Also, Motorola burned me with my previous phone; the Photon 4G, just a couple of weeks before releasing ICS to us and they backed down! :thumbdown::banghead:

    So, I don't want to say never cause I might eat my words in the future, but let's say that I won't buy a Motorola device in a long, veeeeeery loooooooong time!!!

    I don't think you would be crazy at all. I'd make that trade without thinking twice about it. Better battery life, form factor, useful features and a much better U.I.

    You certainly would not see a performance hit and might even like it better as the Moto X is very smooth. Once you get used to saying Ok Google Now, it is pretty useful. It is smaller in form but I think a tad bit heavier which gives the device good heft. Feels good in the hand and pocket or on a holster. Active notifications are revolutionary and very useful as well as cool. One thing I also like is the very strong vibration mode and the face that the screen comes on when you pick up the phone, you rarely have to press the power button.

    The S4 is feature rich, has a bigger screen (I really like that) and has a better camera. If you do not use the features of touchwiz then that gives the Moto X the edge because it is more useful. If the camera is important, keep the S4 because it is better. With the update the Moto X camera is not bad but the S4 takes better pictures. Also if you use the micro SD card a lot the Moto X base model is 16GB with no sd card.

    Both are great devices, but a bit different on the feature set. I have a 32 GB touch wiz S4 I am keeping as a backup for my wife and family. Personally, I would take the 32GB Moto X over the S4 since I feel it has more useful features and I have all the features of the S4 turned off.

    Just my .02 cents.

    Why can't we just get a phone that has everything?

    The s4's screen size, s-beam, swipe for screen shot, removable battery, SD cad slot, camera

    The ONE's build materials, speakers, screen quality, looks, zoe

    Note 3 battery life

    And the moto X's touch free operation features?


    When will some genius combine ALL OF THAT into a single phone?

    That would murder the competition.

    That's not a lot of screen time at all.


    My s3 with 2.5 hours of screen time lasts all day!


    If the battery wasn't so small I would switch, but now I'm thinking note 3

    I don't want all of that in one phone. I think the S4 is slightly too big.

    I am glad I am not the only one who thinks that! It sure would save me a ton of cash! Maybe Moto is off to a start with customizing features. The problem is most people do not know their phone. I saw someone with a moto x last night at a function and she had no clue about the phone. All she knew is that she got to pick the color of the back...sigh

    Based on the specs that have leaked for the Nexus 5, it is getting close to my ideal device. But so is the 32GB moto x. Having trouble deciding. Maybe both?
