    If you think I'm wrong, then specifically say what it is that I'm saying wrong.

    Your Moderator; the guy you praise for being some sort of genius, came and started quoting Wikipedia to "teach me" the difference between SoC and Chipset.

    That shows 2 things.

    1) he doesn't know what he's talking about

    2) you guys know even less than him

    If you look back, he quoted the definition of Chipset as it pertains to a DESKTOP motherboard, with a north and south bridge, etc.

    But in reality, and it he knew anything, he would know that when talking about smartphones and tablets, saying "Chipset" and "SOC" is in fact the SAME bloody thing

    That's why if you go to Qualcomm's website, a Snapdragon 800 or 600 is referred to as a CHIPSET. Is it an SoC? Of course it is. It's the same thing.

    Your moderator really doesn't know anything.

    As for the other guy saying "there isn't any technology from 2012" inside the Moto X, we all know it is true.

    Inside the chipset/SoC, are the NEW Krait 300, also part of that chipset is the Adreno 320, which is 2012 technology.

    So they are BOTH wrong.
    You are totally, 100%, unequivocally wrong in saying that the 8960DT is a 2012 part.

    Now that that's all (hopefully) over...

    One other thing that I'd like to point out is that the phrase "user experience" means almost nothing. It's a marketing phrase someone made up to justify charging too much for a piece of hardware (not that I believe the Moto X is overpriced). Either the Galaxy S4 or Moto X could have a better "user experience" depending on the user. The Moto X doesn't have a better "user experience," it has better battery life. I've only ever run my S4 out of battery once and that was in a situation that's all but guaranteed not to happen again during the life of my phone. 90%+ of the time I have more than 40% of my battery left at the end of the day. So a better battery isn't a better "user experience" for me. It's just another meaningless spec that's way higher than necessary. Having the option for extra storage, however, does make for a better "user experience" because I can put all of my music on my phone and listen to it on car trips without worrying about a data cap. So the Moto X can't possibly have an objectively better "user experience" if it totally depends on the user. Most phones have a better "user experience" than most other phones otherwise some wouldn't be sold at all.

    I totally agree that Motorola's decision to sacrifice FLOPS for battery life was a good one. It's something that's probably needed. It's kind of a unique time in smartphones where screens are about as good as they need to be resolution wise and the latest and greatest CPU isn't needed to run most of what people use a smartphone for. Motorola is adding idle time features that don't destroy the battery at the perfect time. Since display resolution and CPU power requirements are topping out, battery life is the new bottleneck for how awesome a phone can be. They were very smart to recognize that as soon as they did.

    A lot of sites have little hide icons, I just didnt see it and asked. Perhaps another area would have been better to ask in. I'll take it to a more appropriate section, sry.

    Well I think that perhaps every variation of an argument can be made on this subject matter. The bottom line... some folks like the Moto X better and some folks don't. The same Bottom line applies to the One, and the S4. However, there is virtually no agreement on the particulars.

    Agreed and that's one of the reasons that many people are calling the moto x an overpriced, outdated product right out of the box. If you buy the moto x today on a two year contract it will basically contain hardware that's 4 years old by the end of the two years. Just because you can pick your color doesn't change anything. it's outdated being branded as revolutionary.

    Are you leveling the same complaints at the One and S4, since they both have the 320 as well?

    Don't expect a reasonable response. He bought a Maxx.

    But shh...don't tell him that it has practically the same internals. It would spoil the surprise.

    No one ever said it wasn't the same. Oh yeah except for my huge battery and my phone isnt glued together.

    After this nonsense marathon, does anyone want to trade me their "2012 Moto X" for my 2012 Galaxy S3? Reading this thread made me really want the X. It's a fair trade afterall, since both phones are "for all intensive purposes" made in 2012.

    Wouldn't be fair trade, galaxy s 3 can do a lot more than the moto x. 2012 was a great year for samsung.

    Well I can no longer charge my S3 using the USB port. So you're right, it wouldn't be a fair trade for whoever got my S3. And by the way, I BABY my electronics so I have no idea how or why that USB port stopped functioning. Multiple chargers, cleaned the lint out, all of the internet tricks and nothing worked. But that's a topic for another thread.

    Also, the things that the Moto X CAN do, are all the things that matter to me, and therefore I want it. I don't need 1080p to scratch the spec itch. I also don't need a dead battery by noon, or inconsistent service signal. I LOVE my S3 and I also own a Galaxy Note 10.1 so I like Samsung. But I want that X for more practical purposes.

    I haven't broken my S3 at all, it doesn't even have a scratch. What did you do? Drop kick it? The phone's not the problem, you probably jammed the charger in too hard

    And this the kind of response that I always hated. It is always the person's fault. Things sometimes break and it has nothing to do with the end user.
