    Release dates!!!! Why have such an event but you can't tell us when we can get it.... LAME.

    And am I correct that only certain carries are getting the motomaker first? If this is true, that's just plain stupid.
    I will second this and add that the entire carrier exclusive deal is what has confused the entire launch. Everything else is debatable, but AT&T getting a grip on it for the first month is pointless and only hurts those interested.

    To clear this up again, the 32GB version is NOT exclusive to AT&T. For now, Moto Maker is. If any other companies get Moto Maker, they also get the 32gb version.

    Is it or isn't the 32gb an att exclusive? I'm confused

    You are really going to switch TO AT&T....for a special plastic back?

    Proof of market.

    Yeah I'll switch. I'm not overly fond of T-Mo and Att has better overall coverage.

    So I pay more, I want the phone so I'm willing to pay the price to do so.

    Hands-on with the Moto X | Android Central
    Other hardware points of note:

    2GB Of RAM
    The display is (only) 720x1280, and it's AMOLED RGB. It's certainly usable, but probably not our favorite display.
    The battery's got a 2,200 mAh capacity, and Motorola swears it'll go all day. As in 24 hours.
    Most versions of the Moto X sports 16GB of internal memory. AT&T has the exclusive on a 32GB version.
    You'll get 50GB of free storage on Google Drive for two years.
    NFC and Miracast are on board.
    Wifi does 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac.
    aGPS and GLONASS for finding your way around.

    I believe that the point was actually that the 32 GB option is actually a Moto Maker exclusive option. The fact that only AT&T has access to Moto Maker makes it seem that the 32 GB will be an AT&T exclusive.

    That said, I'm not sure whether the 32 Gb will be available to Verizon via Moto Maker when it becomes available.

    But if at the end of the day I'm down to 5% that sucks. With my RMHD I'm down to 70%. Maybe 60.

    I agree with the post above - they are calling this a game changer, but I don't see anything of the sort. There isn't anything that makes me want to buy this phone. And certainly not over a Droid Maxx

    It isn't. As others have said, that 32 GB model is available through Motomaker, which is only available through att. When att loses their exclusivity, the larger capacity will be available at other carriers.

    Then you're probably not the target audience.

    Anyone ever think that maybe the game changing factor in this phone is the fluidity and ease of use? With so many new android users that are added every year, is there really an android phone out right now that has the fluidity/dependability /ease of use that the iPhone possesses?

    Honestly, I'm kinda torn between either this, the HTC ONE GE, or whatever the hell the nexus 5 might be.

    I don't see why anyone would want this phone more than the HTC One or Nexus 5. I'm running a GPE rom on my One and it's...magical (but not really...but it is close enough).

    Not knowing what the Nexus 5 is, I could easily argue for getting a known quantity versus a gamble.

    Versus the HTC One, I think the two devices are very comparable out of the box. With the GPe edition... personally I like the Sense One more than the GPe version, but I think you did the smart thing and got the Sense one and flashed GPe, meaning you can always go back if you decide you want to play with Sense again. Not sure if that's possible the other direction or not.

    The One has a much better screen. people love the build materials, a 100MAh edge on the battery capacity and 2 extra cores in it's S600. On battery life, software functionality, software speeds, button configuration, camera and on the customization front, the One may have just been trounced, but at the least it's been caught. It's very interesting to compare the two, being two distinct paradigms of how to tackle smart phones and what smartphones are for... much more interesting than the S4 vs Moto X comparison.

    I wonder how the performance of the moto x will stack up to the HTC ONE.

    But what is so much more fluid about this phone compared to the Ultra for instance. About the same size, larger screen, similar battery, better screen, close in price (I think?). Or the same but twice the battery in the MAXX. The case might be a little prettier and curvy. I'll give it that. But, if you put the phone flat on a table and tap on the keyboard does the phone wobble back and forth??? That would annoy me.

    I like how you picked the one phone that is almost identical to the X to use as an example. How about comparing it to the One or the S4. If I can just pick up the X and start talking to do a Google search, for example, that's far more fluid and intuitive than what I have to do on the One. Press the power button, enter my PIN, click search, then click the mic. Or, power button, PIN, Chrome, type my search.

    IDK, you tell me which one is more fluid.

    You can bypass the PIN with the always on voice on the x? That's kind of scary, and would probably make my exchange admins rip their hair out.

    You don't have to even pick it up. You can just scream MOTO MAGICCCCCCCCCCCCCCC and do a Google search. Preferably with your shirt off pounding on your chest to max out your manliness.

    This IS how I'd use this device, btw.

    Not sure, but I know on the One you can access the camera app without inputting the PIN, it just doesn't let you anywhere else.

    For those of us not chained to Verizon, the ultra is a complete non factor.
