    You are way off. I don't much care about the price but what people don't like is that this a a mid spec phone with a high end price.

    So the Moto X costs $199 on contract. And now, predictably, tons of people are going whine and scream and b@#!$ that the price they made up isn't real. Some people speculated an unrealistic price point and spread around like wildfire as if it was fact. It should have been obvious when the Droid Ultra with similar specs was released with a $199 price tag that the Moto X would be similar. But people just kept repeating this ridiculous $299 price tag, and now the internet is going to go ballistic because people refused to stop and think "Wait, we made this up."

    Before you rage about the price some more, keep in mind NOBODY promised you this price, it was made up and demanded by people who seem to think all phones should be sold for little to no profit. If you are legitimately shocked and disappointed that this phone wasn't sold at a crazy low price, you have no one to blame but yourself for believing it, as the proof was there for a while.

    Also, you are free to wait for the Nexus 5, since it will undoubtedly be better. Just remember, the Nexus 5 isn't even confirmed to EXIST. Before you start hyping the Nexus 5, remember what JUST HAPPENED with the Moto X. Let this be yet another lesson about what happens when you make crap up and treat it like fact.

    I don't think you do. The iPhone is built with high quality components and much better quality control, testing, and service and support than most Android phones. Any of them actually. This costs money. That is why the screen sharpness, color and contrast are still great, performance is excellent, and the camera on the iPhone 5 is still the best on the market a year after its introduction. Also many of the components, like the processor, are a custom SOC. Liking Android doesn't mean you have to constantly announce to the world, as you do in your signature, that you don't like the iPhone. It's a good indication you ego is wrapped up in your choice of device which is pathetic and is also makes you sound like an immature teenager. Be happy with what you have.

    I think it's been handily explained that this is not a "mid spec phone" in many threads here, so I won't go into the specifics other than to say the other threads and anatech's review are a great read.

    I agree with you that was the day 1 reaction, but a little research and understanding about what it actually is, rather than what it looks like go a long way. From a "spec" perspective, this *might* be the highest "spec'd" phone out (until the G2 starts rolling, then that can be compared), and from a performance standpoint it certainly is.

    Either way, in light of the facts, the argument would make more sense to say that the Galaxy S4 is way over-priced, than the Moto X is. The S4 is still being priced the same as the One and X (at least on Verizon, I didn't check AT&T out), despite the latter two both being much better performing devices.

    The price of the X is definitely reflective of the quality of performance, feature set and the parts used (a $221 BOM vs the $234-237 in the S4). There was no valid reason to assume a Google subsidy to knock it down to cost.

    The only thing immature was your reply to me. You really don't know a thing about what you are talking about. I own Apple products. Don't make assumptions. Plus you are bringing up points that I didn't even raise. Care to respond to the actual points I made?

    Heard on the radio, the X is going to be $99 on contract in the last quarter of this year.
