    What do you guys think? I'm not sure it is worth it, unless you want a really BIG phone...I do own a Nexus 6, only have a 2013 Moto X to compare it to though...

    If the 2014 Moto X had a bigger battery and everything else was the same then I'd be inclined to say that it wasn't worth it since the pure edition of the phone is already running lollipop. People tend to say that if you can't have a Nexus phone then get a Motorola phone so you can have a similar experience. But some people are pro-Google for everything. Also, if the DROID Turbo would have on-screen buttons that would have been my next phone.

    I think I say no. I really enjoyed the moto x 2014 and it was a great size. I returned mine but waiting to see if there are any black Friday deals on it.

    I have a moto X 2014 on VZW. It's worth it to me since I can't get the pure edition.

    I am not a super hacker, but enjoy certain root apps and the freedom that comes from an unlocked bootloader.

    I've used a Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7, and Verizon Moto X (2013) Developer Edition as my primary devices at different times.

    In my mind, the Moto X DE gave me a Nexus like experience (fast updates, stockish Android, easily rooted, unlocked bootloader).

    The Turbo and Moto X 2014 are nice phones and, if they could be easily unlocked, I probably wouldn't have ordered the Nexus 6.

    However, they can't. So, yes, the Nexus 6 is worth the premium for me.

    I think it comes down to what size you want, Nexus 6 is too big for me, I have had the 4 and 5 and felt like a change, and to be honest got tired of waiting, the 32 gig one has changed from coming soon to out of stock check back soon 5 days and the 64 gig just say coming soon (uk)
    But I really struggle with the size of the 5 and Moto X, if I am just popping out I usually grab Nexus 4.
    I have fallen in love with the subtle Motorola touches though I love the 'don't touch for notification' part.
    Personnel choice, I like to use a bumper and jumping into the car with that in my pocket would bring many tears to my eyes!

    The 6 is just too big for me, but I love my 14X. The Qui charging is the 1 thing I would really like on my X2. Don't really understand why Motorola left that out.

    If the Moto X camera didn't suck, I'd probably get it. If you value the camera, stay away. If you don't, definitely think about it. I love my 2013 X but the camera is just awful in 50% of the situations I use it in.

    I'm tempted to import a Moto Maxx...I just can't get over the size of the Nexus 6. Especially next to a One M8...

    Can that be done? How? And would it work with an ATT sim card?

    After just 36 hours with my Nexus 6 I pulled my Nexus 5 out last night to encrypt and wipe it so I could sell it and I went to play with it now that it has the 5.0 update on it and I am already hooked on the 6 inch size... I wouldn't want to go back to a 5 or 5.2 inch device... So in my mind and for my dollars yes it's worth the "premium" paid for it...

    Now spec for spec even including the size difference I'd say no..... but value or worth is different from one person to another....

    By the time you add the turbo charger plug ($35 and out of stock) the cost is really a lot closer. Only a $65 premium for a 32GB 6 vs a 32GB X.

    For me it was Tmo band 12 support, and guarantee of VoLTE/wifi calling (although chances are the latter will be able to be loaded from play store or something in future)...

    Now that the Moto X is $359 on Cyber Monday? Unless you have to have a bigger phone, no it isn't. Not for $300 more.

    That's actually a great deal. However, it's unfortunate it's only a one day deal.

    And assuming you're one of the lucky few to make it through the slaughter to a successful checkout. Last year moto ran the same promotion and it was a total fail.
