    I just couldn't help myself with the Wirefly deal yesterday, DROID MAXX by MOTOROLA for Verizon Wireless - Wirefly.com. Plus, I found a $20 off coupon code (which I can't remember or find anymore, it was something like JB20). $180 seemed too good to pass up. My trusty Gnex needs to be charged about every 6 hours, even if I'm not using it. because I can't ever get signals at work. Never had a problem with my OG. I'm used to carring this around, so the "larger" phone is pretty much the same size as I'm used to. I so wanted the Moto X, but 16 GB isn't going to be enough, and I can't wait til Nov, I'm too impatient.

    For me it comes down to stock (with a few additions) Android vs MotoBlurr. Moto X all the way. From what I can tell it is almost identical in size and shape to the Gnex that Im currently using. Im just hoping the camera will be at least a slight improvement to the Gnex's and that I will actually be able to make a phone call in which both parties are able to clearly understand each other without the mic cutting out every few minutes. Also being able to go more than a couple hours without having to find a charger would be nice. Im on Verizon and while Id love to wait until November or whenever to customize it but Im pretty sure Im not that patient. I am tempted to wait for the Nexus 5, especially now that its rumored to be a Moto device, but like others have said I doubt it will make it to the CDMA verizon.. So white Moto X here I come.

    I'd be careful with the combination of a white front faceplate and the AMOLED screen. We all know that AMOLED devices don't have the best color reproduction, and having a white reference right next to the screen will probably make it look worse.

    That's all speculation, of course, since I haven't actually seen the device in person. Just going off what I've seen on videos.

    Is the Moto X confirmed as a world phone? I know the Ultra and the MAXX are. This would make my decision pretty easy.
    Anyone got an answer for this? I have the Galaxy Nexus and I'm eligible for an update on the 15th. Looks like I'm going to lose unlimited data. I don't use enough data to justify paying for a phone off contract. Looks like I'll have to travel to Europe for work and having a phone that works would be nice. It would be even better if it's a stock Android phone.

    Check this out and see if you have a way to keep unlimited first.
    As far as how the radios are configured, not sure yet. I think Phil has the AT&T version, so that's no help but the guy reviewing it at geek.com has a Verizon version.

    Very cool, but this doesn't work in my case. Odd that Verizon hasn't closed this loophole.

    Right now I am leaning towards the X. It's going to be a tough choice. I will bet that performance wise there will be very little to choose from. And the form factor of the X is very much like the DNA, which is awesome. On the other hand the Ultra has a slightly larger screen, but I find I prefer smaller screens. 4.7" isn't a lot smaller but it may be enough to make a difference in handling. If the X battery endurance meets the hype - and based on the reviews up it seems to - that will let me get through the day with less bulk than a Maxx. But even if I were to get a Droid I suspect I'd be just as happy. What's a tech junkie to do?????????

    The Maxx is 8mm compared to the 10 on the X, so not really much bulkier.

    So leaked training docs show Verizon is likely going to push the DROID MINI, ULTRA, and MAXX hard over the Moto X. If this surprises anyone, you don't know how the industry works.

    I will tell them what *I* want. Anyone here probably knows more about phones than they do in the first place.

    Read Joseph Volpe's review for Engaget on August 5th.

    He claimed he killed the phone for a full day and still had juice 24 hours later.

    The more I keep comparing the more I keep leaning toward the mini. I have an old maxx now and the 4.3 is fine. And I love the idea of a smaller more pocketable phone. Is it confirmed all 4 phones have active display?

    Assuming the **** is true that a 32 GB is coming to Moto X, its smaller, easier to hold, and probably will last long enough. Right now, software buttons, and no Droid nonsense puts the X ahead of the Ultra crowd for me. BUT, I will probably wait until I can touch, hold, fondle, sniff, make purring sounds next to, and read many more intimate reviews, reports, and see what problems come up before taking the plunge into next gen Moto bliss. Come middle of Sept, I expect to know enough, and fork over the $. Its a matter of which Moto - no other contenders.

    I currently have a razr maxx (non HD). Phones dragging, and I want something new. I actually was ready to buy the X but at the price, I am really considering getting the mini. I wanted a smaller phone, and I believe battery life will work for me with a more efficient processor/optimized software. I take my phone everywhere....work, gym, running, etc. The ideal size for me is a bezel-less 4.5 but I was willing to go to the x considering its weight. After all said and done.....honestly given the same or similar specs I think the decision for me is not Moto X vs. Ultra its more Moto X vs. mini. I know, 4.3 is old school but its a phone not a tablet.....my fiancees kids can stop telling me to answer my flat screen TV
    The mini looks good, but only comes with 16 gigs of memory and an lcd display. I'd have to look at the screen differences but I've run out of memory several times on my Galaxy Nexus with 32 gb.

    I use my phone a ton but storage wise 16 is enough for me. I use google music thing that streams my library remotely and I take plenty odd pics but still don't used the full 16. Have plenty of apps loaded as well. Gonna come down to screen at this point. But I want active notifications. Some say mini has it. Some don't. We shall see in a week ya?

    The Mini DOES NOT have active notifications. For some reason, they use a different screen. It is a TFT LCD on the Mini vs. AMOLED on the other phones. On an AMOLED, you can only light the pixels you want. On and LCD you have to light the whole screen. Active notifications on an LCD would murder the battery on the Mini.

    I was debating small and convenient (the Mini), especially since I also get the "answer your TV!" comments, but I'm tired of swapping out batteries when my phone dies. (But hey, at least I can do that w/ the GN.) So I had been leaning towards the Maxx, but the situational or contextual awareness claims of the Moto seem pretty cool. I will wait for real reviews, but it would be great to know that the Maxx can do the same thing. Then I think I would have an easier decidion.

    BTW, for those with Galaxy Nexus, I'm in the same sinking boat, with multiple batteries. And I seem to encounter more "bugs" recently (grayed-out wifi and 3G icons, for example), and slower reaction. I'm sure it is a coincidence that the new phones are coming out in a few days.

    Hmmm.
    The Verge reports the opposite. S-amoled and active notifications.

    Seeeee all the conflicting reviews on active display and screen type on the mini. Why is it so hard to find out kidding.

    I like wireless charging idea.......if you have a skin or case will wireless charging still work? Cause I always have a case on so its pointless it not.

    Worry not, the contextual awareness is there for the Maxx too. The DROID Life quick review made it clear that the Droids have all the features of the X, plus a couple more (Zap and Control Center Widget). I like the widget, but doubt I will get much use from Zap.

    I have had some of these, but I have chalked a lot of it up to the ROM I am running. Still can't wait for my Maxx to get great because battery life is killing me.
