    I love the Moto X, it took me a while after the announcement to really like it, and I have always defended it to my last breath. But the more hate I see on it, the more my mind wanders. I don't plan on leaving Verizon anytime soon, and its the only one I like over S4, One, G2 (Don't like their skins mostly). But all the hate about the customer service, removable battery, lack of sd card, ok I never had to deal with any of those except sd card but I could go around that.
    I want the phone but don't at the same time. Guess I get that for not picking it up while its hot.

    I am NEVER happy with phones.. Ask my family, gf and co workers lol...

    I've had the iphones. Galaxy's. Attic and htx one x..

    This is by far. The greatest phone I've owned.. And you'll be the envy of your friends with Google now and active notifications...

    I have the Samsung rep at my store envious. And other iPhone lovers wanting the phone BC of the okay Google now feature....

    No complaints. Screen is higher pixels then the iPhone! More innovative and has a great battery. Camera is also great..


    I see the hate from techies. They see the specs. But that's it. And they are spec whores..

    In reality. Motorola coded android and made the technology work. Its not a dual core... Its more like a quad core... Cores specifically made for gestures and voice. It allows for low battery consumption!

    Don't be a tool and follow. Just buy the phone. You have what? 15 days to return? So test it for a week!

    I currently own the HTC one, moto x, lg g2, and s4 gpe. Out of them all, I am digging the moto x the most right now. Can't get over the form factor. I also love my one. Its a tough choice, however don't hesitate picking up a moto x. Great device.

    Yeah I know, its the only device I have my eyes set, except maybe Nexus 5 but I'm on verizon. I just can't stand the hate on the device anymore, I know theres some stuff Motorola need work on like cs, but the device is perfect. Guess its because I spent so much time reading and learning, the new phone hype wore off.

    For some reason the hate is extreamly high.. It's PURELY becuase of spec's though.. Listen to why people hate it: Oh it has low CPU's, the GPU sucks, pppsshhhh that screen, eww the camera is horrible.. Its a Motorola Product-it'll overheat..

    Nobody EVER SAYS (which are actually the Pro's)
    The Archetecture of the CPU's is fantastic! The GPU can hold its weight for some time and is on par with higher spec phones, the Camera is really good-specially after the Camera Update, The Form Factor works great! and fits right in your hand comfortably. the screen size is fantastic for the actual phones size, the battery life is incredible! the screen is really good, and you couldnt tell its only 720. As well as: Active Notifications is the greatest thing on a phone since Apple Announced the iPhone, or the "Okay Google Now" function is fun, and actually useful more then you think + it'll make your friends envious!

    Just saying! Get the phone!!! lol.

    P.S. I love making fun of my iPhone friends who have to ACTUALLY touch their phone and hit a stupid button for Siri.. And my other Android friends who have to find the actual app or have it enabled through the home button.. Simply slide up from the home button or just say okay google now.. BAM.. Also the Moto Assist while driving works in your pocket.. Had it happen to me, it was AWESOME It listened to me while driving in my pocket! forgot it was there, saved me from a very expensive ticket :P

    That's the problem with doing your homework when buying a new phone (I've been doing the same thing lately) - all you read are the tech-focused people who want the latest/best/spec-heaviest device out there. Instead, if you read reviews, you'll see that most of them are very positive, citing the same basic shortcomings but pointing out the same positives.

    There's an equal amount of love/hate for all devices out there. It's the nature of the Internet. Ignore the hate and try playing with the phone you think you want and see if it's right for you.

    Don't get it. Don't get _any_ phone you don't absolutely want. You'll have buyers remorse.

    Also, stop listening to other people so much.

    Oh, and go for a walk. The fresh air will clear your head.

    That's the problem with choosing today's smartphones with on paper stats. Some brands know this is the norm and put having those top specs as their number one priority. Motorola took a huge risk sidelining on paper specs and it didn't totally pay off because a certain group of consumers will always be on the fence because of those paper specs. I do assure you however, that if you palm the Moto X and S4 in both your hands and starting playing with the same applications the decision is even harder to make. The Moto X has feature that are unique to it and cannot be compensated for through specs, active notification and always ready google now capabilities will come in handy and when they do... That will be the exact moment you're sold. You're friends will notice (but not mention) how fast you can get to dealing with notification, its seconds but enough to impress.

    There are only 2 peiece of hardware, that are serious and constitute as the actual cons to this phone. Firstly there is no SD card, this is actually a much bigger deal than most of make it seems. However, there are the people that will need it and the people that wont because they are light users or already attuned to cloud computing and moving around data. It really hinders your ability to play games on the phone, I always like to keep FIFA and a racing game on my phones for when I might need it (I will likely have to sacrifice the racing game). I know plenty of people who have maxed out SD cards on their S4 so those people literally spit at the thought of 11GB of usuable memory. I am also dreading the idea of deleting photos because I don't have any room, as useless at it is I rather liked having all the photos I've ever taken on the phone with me. I just don't understand how some manufactures like motorola are giving use constant upgrades in hardware to do more but they're not expecting us to have to store more data? The second huge downfall is the camera. This is debatable but the camera is frustrating more so than terrible, its comparable with all the other cameras out there on a good shot (not the Lumina). The focusing capabilities are sluggish and adjustments to lighting to aggressive, re-calibrating at even the slightest changes. The camera is great however with sufficient detail and the best color replication in my opinion, its not saturated like samsung photos. I rather prefer the natural colors you get from the moto x instead of everyone's lawn being emerald green when really that's not the case. The other bad thin is the lowlight shots, not the facts that they are dark like every other smartphone camera, but the fact that the photo quality really deteriorates in low light. As someone who takes most (all) of my photos during with my nightlife or fishing, bad low light photos really upset me but in the end it wasn't enough to deter me. A lot of my best catches have been at either sunset or sundown when things are very dim and nothing pisses me off more than a bad shot of an impressive catch. Regardless of those two downfalls, which you can see I am really bothered by (not enough obviously) this phone is perfect for me, actually I think it as made just for me so you guys are welcome.

    Is my phone twin. I'm switching to a different phone every few months because I'm never happy with one. The moto x is finally something I really enjoy. The only thing that could make it better would be Nexus fast updates, but that's more a dream than a complaint. So I'm happy

    I did see someone else say if you aren't excited for a phone, don't get it. I agree.

    Except the X. Its the exception. Buy it.

    Yeah think I'll wait for Moto Maker too. Thats what I've been waiting for. Plus 32GB. (Though I ended up living fine with 16gigs (I don't find phones very nice for media (movie/video) consumption.) Just a simple Navy Blue back with maybe a nice accent, nothing too extreme. But mine.

    Exactly what I want. Offer me Navy + 32GB and my wallet comes magically flying out of my pocket. Birthday @ the end of the month, but it looks like Moto wants to wait until Christmas for my money.

    I am so happy to see all the Moto X love on this thread
    I am an apple/iOS fan, but I also like android. I have iphone and Moto x. The Moto is the best phone ever made.
    I am in love with it. I don't even pick my iphone up anymore. I just had to charge the iPhone for the first time in 4 days. That's how little its used now. (i carry both 24/7)
    The Moto X ...Awesomeness.

    Let's put it this way.... what does Verizon have that's better? Depending on your mobile demographic, it's probably a Moto X, Note 3 or iPhone 5s. Those are all about the same quality but different philosophies. Nothing else comes close to those three except maybe the G2.

    ...so ....you're shying away from the phone because other people dont like aspects of it???

    Who cares?? It's value to you should depend on what it offers you; not other peoples opinions.

    Personally; I never would have thought I would buy a device such of this without the ability to add a SD card; I cant wait to get my hands on one of these though. I have 250gb of cloud space I can use, there are wireless thumb drives -even hard drives- and card readers I can use which more than make up for that short coming. The battery life is good but, if need be, I have a small 7500mAh battery I can plug in.

    FWIW

    Perfect Size for me.(pocketable) I hate holsters or anything on my side it just winds up getting in the way or snagged on something.
    As far as Sd card goes I think you can still get 50 GB on Google drive when you activate it .I think they change it to you have to activate by the first 30 days now though.
    You get 50 GB for 2 years after that they dont take the space away but you can not add anymore stuff to it ,so the trick would be to add everything to it before 2 years is up.After that it goes back to 15 GB.But as mentioned they wont take space away you already have after the 2 years.
    Also Sd cards do fail at times.None of mine did but read others did.I was used to having sd cards as well my previous phones were 32 GB with 32 GB sd cards( Galaxy Nexus,S3)

    As far as Moto customer service I read about people having bad experience with.I did not have a bad experience with.
    I had an issue about the Lost Device Map not showing (https://motorola-global-portal.custh.../#/lost_device).
    I was getting an google error something about I need to paste a key, blah blah blah ,etc. I tried to follow instructions nothing worked to fix it.
    I emailed Moto support on the link I posted above .
    Afterwords I wasnt really to concerned since I could always use Google Android Device Manager if needed .
    I got some emails from Moto support asking if my issue was resolved and another email the next day saying if they didnt hear back they would consider it solved. I didnt reply back and fiqured that would be the end of it.
    Later in that week while delivering parts driving company truck I got a call ( I usually dont answer calls I dont recogize but I did)
    It was Moto support and yes they spoke English perfectly.They asked was the issue resolved I said no but I had a solution fiqured out using Google Android Manager.I told them I was driving and about the google error code on the pop up window.
    He said ok what would be a good time to call back I told him . He said he would call back then.
    In the meantime I tried to access the Moto support page map later that day,just to see if it worked, and this time it worked.
    He did call back exactly the time he said he would I told him it was now working .I had done nothing to fix it.He guessed it might had been a server issue and wish I could remember the exact error code and if it ever happened again to contact them instead of email , call.
    It hasnt happened again.
    When deciding on phone I do read reviews but also take then with a grain of salt since no one phone works for everyone or there would just be one phone ,ha.For my sister for example this phone might not work as well for her .After she talked with me about,, but thats another story and she is still undecided since she likes the features I showed her.
    I look for features I like and will use daily .
    Phone size.To some extent the smoothness of OS but with everone messing with the demos its no 100% way to check that.
    The bottom line is no one can pick out the phone you want except you .Its to late to make this post short.I got carried away LoL Sorry for the long post but I just wanted to point out that my experience with Moto support wasnt bad and in my case they spoke and understood english including slang
