    Yeah, I'm going to go with the X I think (even though I said the exact same thing about the ONE, lol) but I think there's more personal pros for me than with the one.

    With the X, the advantages I fell it has are it's stock UI, battery life (but I've heard conflicting reports on battery life. But it seems to all east average 8 or 9 hours with heavy-ish use.), it's form factor, and touchless/action email display features.

    With the other end, the only things I think it has over the X (for me personaly) is its screen and it's internals. But it sounds like it's Internals are not even night and day better compared to the X.

    So really for me personally, the X seems like a no Brainer now that I am writing it out.

    Well, isn't S600 chips kinda the top right now?

    My worry is that 6 months from now when I go to play a game or use a app on the moto x, it's leggy and doesn't perform the game or app well.

    Also, a lot of reviews I read say that while they really like the moto x, for the price you might be better of with a HTC ONE or S4.

    Since android isn't as utilitarian as IOS, I just always thought it's best to get the most advanced handset you can at the time with the most recent silicon. That way you'll probaly be safe for the two years you have the phone.
    If you are keeping a phone for the next two years you don't want a Moto X. Bunch of Snapdragon 800 phones out soon.

    I don't buy in to that 720p vs 1080p resolution of X vs One

    Here is a story which happened last Friday, I went out with my friend for a beer who has an HTC One.
    We were talking about Moto X and its feature and i told him few people on the internet are freaking out about 720p X screen.

    He immediately pulled out his HTC One and asked me to take out my Nexus 4(720p). He said you wont find any difference between 720 and 1080
    We started pulling some images from the internet on both phones and compared them. I couldn't even find any difference.

    Now the only difference you will see is how both phones reproduce color.
    Moto X color reproduction has been praised by many reviewers and they said they don't see the difference in high ppi screen vs X.

    True Story!!!
    Most of the reviews I have have been lukewarm about the screen at best. Like it's ok but not what you would expect.

    I have a 37" 720p Samsung TV in my bedroom. I love it, and the picture is fantastic. I'm still trying to figure out why having a 720p screen on a 4.7" phone is such a deal-breaker for some people.

    My unlocked HTC One will be going on eBay this week, and I'll be happily using my new Moto X for a long time to come.

    I went to the ATT store today and used both the Moto X and the HTC ONE. I really liked the HTC ones screen, but I still don't know if I could get used to sense 5. It's not that I despised it, it was just completely different and strange.

    It's seems like I'd gain more personal positives with the moto x: better UI, supposedly better battery life, active notifications, and much closer to a google android experience than the one. Really, I just want stock(ish) android

    But I can't shake the feeling that I'm not getting the most value for my money when the phone is only 720p and the internals aren't as bleeding edge. I'm going to be paying full retail price on this phone (though it'll be overtime via att next) but I can't shake that I'm going to get more with the HTC ONE than with the moto x since there so close in retail price.

    I know the moto x hardware is probably good enough, all the review I've read said as much, but I can't shake that feeling. One thing I'm worried is that with the HTC ONE I'm buying into HTCs version of Android, not Google's.

    Anyone have any thoughts or advice? This is a very tough decision
    It takes all of 3 minutes to unlock the boot loader on an HTC One. You can then install any ROM your heart desires. It is after all an Android phone. Highly customizable. The 1080P LCD3 screen is gorgeous. I also use Auto Screen On, it uses the prox sensor so when I unholstered it or pick it up off the table/desk, the screen turns on.

    I just didn't want to really go through that. Would rather just leave the phones internals alone.

    I've got my Moto X on the way and will be interested in seeing how it compares to the S4 and HTC One Google editions. I really like the GE S4 because it runs really fast and smooth compared to the touchwiz version. I converted my Tmobile HTC One completly over to a GE and it runs really smooth also. I'll probably be selling both but have bought a Dev Edition HTC One, that's the version of the phone I wanted in the beginning. I have a lot of accessoires for the One and don't want to give it up right now, plus I really like boomsound and beats audio.

    I ordered mine this morning off moto maker. Of all the phones this year it suits me best. I got my mom an HTC One as her first droid, I'm not a fan of form Factor and screen size, to narrow. It has a great camera but I'm not a huge picture person.

    Currently I'm on a N4 that is rooted. I wanted my next phone to be stock and no rooting or roms. With Moto X the notifications, camera gesture and touchless is enough for me to make that leap and not worry about wanting a ROM.

    Most reviewers have said they can notice a difference in sharpness, and clarity between 720p/1080. They say however the 720P display isn't a slouch either. It's kind of a "it's enough" argument really.
    Just thought I'd mention that.

    I have a One and briefly had an X (I'm getting another one, 32gb) and can say that the resolution isn't a big deal. Yes you can tell a difference but its minimal, think 720p and 1080p on a TV, and honestly the AMOLED screen makes it pop a little more and so it looks close. The features on the X, to me, have a higher value add than the One. I never used Blinkfeed, used Zoe maybe 4 times and thought the front speakers were actually a disappointment. The features I loved were the Beats through headphones and the video highlights. On the X I love basically every feature from Active Display to the camera flick. The X feels way better in the hand and has the same premium feeling as the One without being susceptible to scratches as much. Its all preference but I loved the X and the One. The X just feels more right for me.

    I have wondered about the 720 vs. 1080 thing. I have the HTC One and it has the best screen I've seen on a phone to date. The main thing is the brightness and clarity. The S4 has a nice looking screen but I like the One's better, much better actually. I've seen in the reviews that the Moto X is a Oled display but uses the RGB pixel matrix instead of Pentile. I'm not sure how much this will matter to my eyes but, I guess I'll find out tomorrow.

    If you haven't already.. I would read this review.

    This will inform you completely about the X and get a better idea about the spec choice and how it works because in a lot of test the X out performed the s4 and One.

    http://www.anandtech.com/show/7235/moto-x-review

    This review inspired me a lot about the X and direction Google is taking android for an experience equivalent to apple.

    Just left a Verizon store. Did not have much time, but I compared the x screen on the same Web page to my one. First off, now I see the difference between amoled and lcd. The one was much brighter. Also, even though the x is a 4.7, it appeared smaller because of the on screen buttons . I really wanted to hold the device, unfortunately they have the device secured with that contraption on the back. It was smooth though.

    How do you like the white moto x? I was originally going to get the white, but was worried it would discolor or get really dirty.

    Since I'm on ATT, I think I might as well go with moto maker, huh? I like the smooth plastic as opposed to the in store grippy texture.
    I love the white design with the weave on the back. It doesn't get discolored either. I have a clear back case on it though.

    Agreed, Every review out there including mine has explained that the X is actually faster than other quad core phones. Stop getting sucked into specs, moto changed the game in this aspect.

    Hey man, can you post a link to your review? I can't find it and I'm in the One vs. X boat trying to figure out which is my next phone.

    Sure thing. To be fair, I will pick some from the front page google search for "Moto X review"

    androidauthority
    "While 1080p displays are quickly becoming the norm, and even though I cringe at anything less, this is a very nice display nonetheless."

    Marques Brownlee See Moto X review Time: 4:00 minutes~
    Time 4:00
    "The only time I can see a difference of this and a 1080p display is when you put them side by side."

    AnandTech:
    "I can detect a difference between the Moto X and the really high DPI displays like the HTC One and SGS4, but it isnt something that bothers me when using the Moto X."

    The Verge (also makes comment about the S4's screen)
    "though not a best-in-class performer like the HTC Ones Super LCD display"

    Cnet
    "The screen isn't as big and sharp as those on some competing handsets."

    Many others including Android Central implied that the 1080p screen would or does look better however the 720P screen is sufficient.

    I am not sure why people are crying about pixels density saying that if a ppi is 300 or higher the eye cannot discern the pixels. Who exactly cares about the pixels themselves? Even though we can't see the pixels, we CAN see large cluster of pixels working together to portray detail in a photograph, a corner in a shape, or a sharp line in a font. The more pixels, the clearer the details.

    There is a limit obviously, however 720P/1080p on a 4.5" to 5.0" is discernible.
