    Near vanilla experience with cool active notifications. Fast as sh*t.
    No touch actions.

    Would be the perfect phone if not for the camera. Love it.

    I bought a Sony "Super Zoom" camera a while ago. I'm probably not gonna use the camera much.

    Still getting mine setup just the way I want it, but the speed is truly impressive. The smoothest device I've used and I'm moving from the HTC One and iPhone 5

    Okay, a few hours of playing with this phone, and it is awesome. I can't believe how fast and smooth it is. It really makes my Galaxy Nexus on 4.3 seem old and slow.

    Signal strength is fantastic, too.

    Had mine a couple of days and so far, I really like it. Love the size and speed of this phone. Small and light but with a big screen, the notifications are very nice and needed for my job. Great phone overall.

    I love it too, and to be honest somewhat unexpectedly so. I thought it was overhyped and the only reason it seemed more attractive was the less bloated version of Android, whereas hardware wise the One and S4 seemed better in every way. Well I end up prefering the Moto X in all but two (unfortunately pretty crucial, to me anyways) ways:

    1) AT&T and Moto ganged up to disable free tethering on this particular device for users with a grandfathered unlimited plan like me. So even though I only use about 2 GB in an average month and pay for unlimited, I can't use my ~200 MB of tethered data? That's fascist.

    2) The speaker points to the whole world but not me, and I can't even redirect the sound waves by forming a cup around the phone with my hand. I don't find this particularly constructive, given that I'm the one using the phone, and typically do so while looking at the screen. Voice calls on speaker phone with it are a pain compared to the smart front-facing design of the HTC One.

    So while I prefer everything else about the Moto X over other phones, these two things will make me probably move to an HTC One with the Modaco switch. I look forward to the days where carriers stop charging extra for tethering, and where phone makers realize that the person using a phone tends to look at its display while doing so.

    How are you hiding your tethering? They called me when I did it. Told me that was it, next time is lose my unlimited and be paying for 5 gigs and 15 for tethering

    Probably the biggest surprise is the speaker quality for me. I haven't heard a HTC One speakers, but acoustically, the speaker is quite genius and loud without much distortion. Granted, my background with phone speakers is **** poor. The two nexus and a Lumia 920. but the speaker on the Moto X blew me away.

    You must have used a lot of data. I use very little, only about 200 MB each month.

    The paid or free version? The free version doesn't work for me -- it attempts to start the hotspot but then stops it.

    Averaging twenty hours on a single charge.

    Getting some latency on the phone though :/

    Here's my "halfway-through-the-first-day" report:

    So far for me, I've been using it pretty much normally today. Off charger for 8-1/2 hours. 1-1/2 hours of screen time. Half of the time has been on WiFi; other half on LTE. Usage includes some gaming, a few YouTube videos, a couple app downloads, some Facebook, some texting, a little web browsing and snapping a bunch of pictures.

    And I'm at 50%.

    That isn't going to get me through 24 hours but I'm sure as heck happy that it will get me through my waking day without any fear.

    So far for me today, 12 hours on, 2 hours screen time, an hour of calls, an hour of car Bluetooth music time and I'm at 50%. Not bad for the first full day of usage. Also, Bluetooth and GPS settings on all day.

    Would it be "more perfect" with more ppi or 1080p?

    No. Screen is fine, just the camera.

    Probably not, it'd hurt battery life for very little difference in user perception. Both PPI ratings are over the 300 standard, so diminishing returns is heavily in force here.

    Ive had mine for a full day of use today, I am totally in love with this phone and everything about it. Voice actions work absolutely awesome, I am actually finding myself using them quite a bit simply because it works so easily, active notifications is great as well, seems like such a small thing but they are such a great feature. And, to put icing on the cake, at 15hrs off charger, 2hrs of screen on time, and Im sitting with 47% battery left. Awesome phone.

    My phone arrived this morning. I love this phone. It's quick. But very smooth. When using the default keyboard the letters seem to glide onto the surface.

    The phone feels solid. It's definitely exceeded my expectations.

    Battery life seems good. The more I use it the more impressed I am. Usually I start to notice some of the things that bother me about a phone by now.

    Our carriers have never charged separately for tethering. You guys are pretty much living in the past.
