    The s4 camera is very good the moto x camera is worse until they fix it up and it has older hardware then the one and s4 but if you liked to customize your phone and all the gestures also pure stock jelly bean with a little bit of a touch with motorola it will be the moto x if you like the screen and HTC sense and low light photos its the one and if you are an average user and like simple and a smaller screen so you could reach your thumb across the screen its the iPhone 5 and like you said you don't like touch wiz you shouldn't go with the note 3 I would go with the note 3 but I would recommend the moto x as you can customize it and almost have pure stock jelly bean

    Wow!
    24 & 22 those are great speeds
    And if you're comfortable with it..that's what counts.

    The switch from ios does take some work, but it's not so terrible.

    Also this year seems to be the first when android phones finally are getting decent battery life on a wide range of phones...

    Just comparing what I have for my phone and what my wife can do (which is more then when I used a 3gs ages ago), I think the cloud services we have in android are more robust than apples;

    Finally, you do have the newest phone with an innovative approach to the interface.

    That will go far, and even an unrooted, stock Moto x has options than may induce you to keep it more than the 1st 30 days.. :-) :-)

    good luck!

    I'd say the X, unless price to performance matters to you or specs in general.

    I absolutely hate iTunes. And I absolutely love the customization available with Android. I also don't trust that HTC will update the One as I believe Moto will update the X. And I love stock Android. So X all the way for me.
    HTC One will have 4.3 by end of September.

    I say get a cheap flip phone off ebay to tide you over (which I am doing right now) until all of the devices you want are out. This way you can make a good decision instead of a spur of the moment call. I had to hold myself back from buying an S3 or Galaxy Nexus off ebay this weekend since I can't stand flip phones, but its humbling to remember what it was all about years before the smartphone started.

    And KLP will be out in October. With the stock skin on X its more likely to get updates faster.

    Yes it is, but I would not count on much beyond that given the company's massive issues.

    You don't have to use iTunes with an iPhone.

    The only phones that are guaranteed to get updates quickly are Nexus devices. All of the other phones will get updated when the Carrier decides to update. You don't get quicker updates because the O/S is closer to vanilla.

    What makes you think think you have to use the iTunes app on PC to manage your iPhone?

    You don't have to use iTunes to manage your iPhone. But you're missing out on a key feature - the ability to get content onto the phone easily. And before you tell me you have an awesome way to manage your iPhone without iTunes, I'll say this. If your way was BETTER then EVERYONE would do it, and they DO NOT.

    So have fun on your Redhat linux box managing your iPhone using a combination of Wine and ... whatever. /s

    It hasn't been necessary to use iTunes with iPhones for several years.
