    The "always listening" does bug me a bit. I mean, yeah, my devices could be doing that now, but the X explicitly does it. I know the Moto X has it built in, so it doesn't have to report back, but still... I do like it's other features, apart from the price tag compared to the N5 though. And, the N5 has Sprint Spark, and I am lucky enough to be in/near a Spark city, so I can play with that too. It's a toss-up. That, and I want Moto Maker for non-AT&Pay phones.
    What??!!

    One more thing the Nexus has that I wish my Moto X did is wireless charging. I have to break out my LG charging mat since I just got my Nexus 5 tacking number. Although not the most earth shattering feature, it is handy to me when I am in my office at my desk.

    As long as you have to remove a case to do wireless charging, then wireless charging isn't for me.
    Even if I just got a TPU case. Ha
    Its just as simple for me to plug in a cord .
    Instead of removing case and have to purchase a charging pad.

    You can charge with a case on. I always did with my Nexus 4 and S4. I think you can go up 3mm or 4mm thick. I always worry about wear and tear on the usb port so the charging pad works for me. It is kinda gimmicky but it is kinda handy especially when you need a little juice and you need to keep using your phone, it is easy with no cord attached.

    Ok I was unaware you could use with a case.I havent really kept up with it that much.I dont remember if my S3 had the option. I dont think the Galaxy Nexus did either.
    Id agree its less wear and tear on the usb port

    I figured google would keep those things as moto exclusives to try and sway buyers towards their devices. I think the moto x is a great device and hope they build off of the design for the moto x version 2 next year, and hopefully with a little bit more future proof specs (I'm not saying the moto x is slow by any means, just would be nice to have a little more HP under the hood for future games/apps or even future OS versions, who knows how it will change in 2 years)

    Definitely staying with my Moto X. I left the HTC One for the Moto X due to the width off the One. The Nexus5 is 1mm wider then the One. The Moto X is a perfect balance of screen size and handability. (yes, I believe I just made up that word)

    Both are great phones, but the bottom line for me is that the N5 has better hardware and at a price that allows me to upgrade to the newest Nexus every year instead of spending over $600 to do so, coupled with the fact that if I lock myself into a 2 year contract instead of paying over $600 for an unlocked X, I'm once again at the mercy of carriers and their dithering for months for updates for 2 years. The Moto X (or any other recent phone for that matter) doesn't have any hardware or software advantages to offset that for me.

    If I intended to keep phones for the duration of 2 year contracts I might feel differently, but until the day comes (and I dearly hope it never comes) that the Nexus program ends, they're the only android smartphone I'll ever consider.

    ^^Yea but let's see if the Moto X is supported with the upgrade to 4.4 in a more timely manner than has been experienced with other devices that are branded

    I was strongly considering trying out the N5 but it looks a little too big for my preference. Looks like a great device but nothing I would ditch my x for.

    I don't have anywhere near me to play with the N5 itself, but I handled the G2 (similar size/form) and thought the same thing. One reason why I just bought a Moto X on Swappa is due to the total size of the device vs the screen. I don't want a 5" screen, and 4.5"+ can be daunting for me unless the housing is snug (which the Moto X is).

    I came from a GNex and a Nexus S before that.....love the Nexus program. Couldn't wait to get away from Sprint though, so I bought the X on the advice of a cousin that works at ATT....wife chose the LG G2. The Moto X has all the things I liked about the Gnex and then some. Same size, a hair away from being stock...should be quick upgrades and the battery life and speed are top notch. I have messed with my wife's phone and I can see why she likes it...but it has too much bloat on it for me...part of that is that she hasn't customized hers much at all. I was tempted to buy a Nexus 5 just to see, but I think I am going to stay with the X....loving it so far.

    We all keep saying should have quick updates. At this point we just do not know. I would have thought the developers edition would have been updated to 4.3 so maybe they are going directly to 4.4.

    Until we see an OS upgrade we just do not know.

    They said they are going right to 4.4. Better to spend time and resources on 4.4 than wasting time on 4.3 which is good. I'd rather wait a little longer to get the latest OS rather than updating once and then having to wait months to be updated again when they could have just skipped the minor update 4.3 and went right to the larger 4.4 update so I applaud moto on that, the old moto would just now be working on 4.3 with who knows how long you would have been waiting for even acknowledgement of 4.4

    I think they are taking what they need from 4.3 and adding 4.4 on top. After all, the anticipated moto g is rumored 4.3. It would also be interesting to see if the touchless controls gets a big upgrade.

    I will applaud them when they deliver it.

    On another note the gizmodo nexus 5 reviews gives the moto x some strong praise!

    So I'm sitting here with my Moto X and my new Nexus 5... guess which one I like better? The Moto X. The N5 has so far proven to be quite the disappointment for me. I'm gonna give it a bit of time before I pass final judgement but so far there are more things I dislike about it than I like, and the whole new phone experience with the N5 has been very underwhelming to say the least.

    Will do.

    So far the things I don't like are -

    1. UI of Kit Kat (not the N5's fault but treating it as a whole package)
    2. Hangouts for SMS
    3. The screen- Washed out colors, poor black levels, bad viewing angles when viewed from certain angles. It's passable, and better when you don't compare it to any other device, but I will take the Moto X's screen over this one any day of the week
    4. Battery life *seems* mediocre at best, but I need to give it a week before I can truly comment on it
    5. Physical feel of the phone/lack of heft- it feels like a fragile, empty shell. Almost like a mockup that just so happens to work

    I get mine this week also. I plan to go 2 weeks with it as my daily driver to give it a good trial like I did my Moto X. I do not use hangouts and plan to use 8sms for texting.
