    Here's actually what I'm very interested in seeing just from a purely curious point of view -

    Since most of the smartphone geeks here, myself included are kind of unanimous in our reaction to this phone, let's see if Googorola's $500M advertising campaign actually makes this phone sell like crazy regardless of what we think! I'm going to say no, but I am curious how it pans out.

    many phone geeks like us probably wont buy this but I am sure there are people out there who really dont know the difference between any phones.
    Customization will probably attract the users. iPhone is not high in spec and it is expensive, the reason why it sells well is because of Apple's marketing.

    btw, 95% i wont buy it

    Yeah I'm not so sure about that. People are frustrated that it's not the God Phone at Nexus pricing, but it still might be the best device available for many users, and, though I haven't used it, from what I know I think it could easily be in just about everyone's top 5 device list.

    I wanna hang out in a Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile or US Cellular store when someone walks in and says "I want that phone that I saw the commercial for where I can pick my own color" I just wanna see the salespeople squirm.

    I was actually thinking of leaving my Verizon unlimited data plan for this phone on at&t. But when I saw the share everything prices, I think a part of me almost died inside! How can they get away with this absolutely crazy pricing scheme???

    Woah! Hey, I love this phone.. and I'd bet that the $500M Advertising campaign is actually going to pay off. Specially if they do it right! and as long as the Media play's their card's correct too.. and lets be honest. the American people are pretty sheepish, specially when it comes to tech! (just look at the iPhone lol)

    How can the marketing possibly work when the biggest thing they've emphasized so far "designed by you" is unavailable to the vast majority of people? People are gonna go into stores to get a phone they can design, find out they can't design said phone, see that there are better phones available for the same price or less, and walk out with a different phone. Google's marketing will likely backfire on them.

    That's why I am thinking about aio or gophone. Go phone is $60 with 2gb and includes LTE. When I did the math it seemed like better deal than their postpaid, even with subsidy.

    I don't think the only reason Apple sells well is marketing. There is also pretty design/packaging combined with the dumbed down, but non-intimidating interface and the fact that for awhile they were the only game in town as far as apps were concerned. This allowed them to establish a foothold and dedicated, loyal user base who is only know starting to realize the limitations of the walled garden.

    IOW Motorola is going to have something more compelling than a slick marketing campaign and wood battery covers. Most people make design statements with their phone covers/cases and screen savers anyway. Who keeps thei phone completely naked anymore?

    So you are saying that having candy colored or wood grain phones appeal to you then because you don't use creative covers. Got it. Enjoy your Moto X's. :rolleyes:

    No. That's what you said. And honestly, what's with the attitude? If you want to use a case, then use one. How or why does my case-less phone threaten you that you need to roll your eyes?

    I don't like cases because I don't like adding bulk to my phone. My Galaxy Nexus is very plainly colored, and I'm fine with it. I think it looks attractive as is.

    The customizable colors are appealing because it's an opportunity to have a phone that comes in colors specifically geared toward my taste, and I can have that without adding ANY bulk to my phone.

    Not using cases and having a somewhat uniquely-colored phone are mutually exclusive to me.

    Me. I know its bad because Verizons warranty is broken if you have any dings or scratches, but I hate cases, I can't stand the feel, touch, the cut outs, most of them anyways. :P I'm not gonna do anything crazy, probably a navy blue, with lighter blue accents, something simple and stylish. Though wood would be amazing.

    So, uh....completely customizing a phone to match my interests and keep its design appeal in tact is somehow less creative than buying a plastic cover and slapping it on?

    I bet you're the guy that keeps CarBras.com in business.

    No, I'm the guy who wants my phone to be protected from dings and drops because I'm a klutz and stuff happens. Therefore, since I am going to cover the phone to protect it, I don't care what color the battery plate is. It's as simple as that. Didn't know that was such bizarre behavior. Thanks for the insults.

    You asked a simple question, and I delivered a simple answer. You didn't like my answer and issued a demeaning reply that was both illogical and irrelevant. Excuse me if I don't feel sorry for responding in kind.

    I know plenty of people who use phone cases for the same reasons you suggest. Personally, I've never understood the purpose behind covering up a beautifully designed phone with a plastic shell that is usually decidedly less so. It's neither creative nor attractive. The same goes for car bras, laptop covers, people who leave the plastic covers on their digital cameras, and grandmas who insists on wrapping her furniture in cling film.

    This phone, in my eyes, was designed to look and feel beautiful in your hand...by itself. If I buy one, I would like to enjoy it as such. You're welcome to buy your protective case if it suits your needs (which I understand completely), but don't turn your nose up at others who don't just because you're insecure and less-than-sure-handed.

    Do what you want. It's not that big of a deal.
