    If these wood backed Moto x's are available soon like suggested, you'll be hearing me say.."Nexus who"

    I spent a couple hours with my wife's new Nexus 5 last night. A few observations:
    +The screen is very nice on the Nexus. The only thing the Moto X has over it is better contrast (blacks)
    +Very snappy, seems to switch between tabs a touch faster than the Moto
    +Google Now is implemented just as well on the Nexus as Moto
    +Seems to have excellent radios; side-by-side with my Moto, it got 10 dB better signal to the same AT&T towers
    -Nexus is bizarrely light, which makes it feel cheap/flimsy. It's also awkward to hold; I really missed the "dimple" on the Moto
    -The size+form factor gives the Nexus poor "pocketability'. The Moto X is the perfect shape/size for keeping in one's pocket
    -The metal buttons on the Nexus are sharp like razor blades on the edges; no fillet/chamfer whatsoever. They get caught on everything (pockets, fingers, etc)
    -I really missed Active Notifications and Moto Assist; will have to install some apps on the Nexus to duplicate these capabilities

    Didn't play with the camera yet. Overall, the Nexus seems like an awesome device, but it's clear when holding the Moto X why it's ~$130 more expensive.

    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.

    I will be curious of your review too

    after seeing the AC article on n5 battery life, im still happy with my x. they used it similarily like i do and i know for sure i wouldve had a longer lasting battery. seeing how this is as close as i have ever been to vanilla after coming from a gnex, im sold with moto x and any future iterations.

    i wouldnt be surprised if they introduce android 5.0 on the moto x2

    I wanted a nexus as a replacement to my iPhone 5 but the battery life turned me off. I'm deciding between the s4 and the x now,

    Battery: moto x hands down. I owned s4 prior and the battery would drain quickly. Moto x has been phenomenal on battery life.

    Something is wrong with your Moto X, they were connected using different bands or the signal level is simply incorrect on one of them. It may be possible to be a few db different but not 10db(which is equal to a signal ten times stronger)

    Neither do I, but I think when they integrate SMS to hangouts in 4.4 it may be a different story

    I own a gpe gs4. I would highly recommend you check out the Moto X some more. It is really a fantastic device. You just can't go wrong with one. Once you get used to active display / active notifications you will never want to go back !

    I was waiting to see the nexus 5 and what it would bring. After realizing the truth behind the small battery, I knew it would be no improvement over my current nexus 4 battery which is abysmal. I've read a lot of good things about the moto x battery and believe it is exactly what I need. Plus those active notifications and moto assist really cannot be beat.

    On a light day I get almost 2 days on battery. Heavy use: 24 hours give a take a couple. No complaints here...amazing coming from the Galaxy S2. Just hope it doesn't lose it's capability in a year or so. Best cellphone/device I've ever owned. Nexus 5 may be cool, but I don't see how it is worth paying more for it than the X under contract

    Thanks for that. See here is my deal. I wake up at 6 and go to work at 7. I get off at 3. Sometimes I don't or cannot go home after. I use my phone moderately while at work. I want a phone that could last me until I finally get ready to go home and plug it in around 11 or 12. A whole day without having to worry about charging the dang thing. So I hope this phone can do it cause my nexus doesn't cut it the least bit lol. I miss the days of having a phone that lasted an entire day, not an entire day based on reviewers which to them apparently all means around 8 hours...sorry but what kind of day is that? Lol.

    I'm moving away from my Galaxy Nexus and after weighing my options, I went with the X. My job pays for my service, so I could get the X for $99 or pay for the Nexus. I liked the free tethering, but in the end the form factor and comfort of the X as well as the amazing software features won me over. Hopefully, the improvements to the camera will eliminate what most have stated is the big weak point of it. It can't possibly be worse than the GNex. It's camera is just awful.

    If you root it you can install the stock 4.4 MMS.apk pulled from AOSP. It's better than using a 3rd party app.

    Can't imagine the battery not giving you what you need. May as well give it a go on the 14 day policy imo

    How awesome must it be to be LG and Google right now? The only real debates on phones are G2 and nexus (both LG) and the Moto x (lot of Google win in it). The top 3 Android devices are the babies of Google and their closest partners of late. No way for us to lose with those 3 and in every case Google wins. I like the partnership with us and choice of philosophies, rather than some companies approach of: here is this thing we made, deal with it.

    Not to mention the growth from each companies devices. Next year is going to be an even bigger leap, they've got the momentum now. I enjoy seeing more Google and Moto commercials & a bigger presence in Best Buy. They need to continue to ramp up marketing now that the glues are starting to settle.

    After being bummed that there is no Nexus 5 for Verizon, I'm glad to hear people are still enjoying the Moto X. I look forward to Motomaker on Verizon. I just wish off-contract was cheaper, at least on par with the Nexus 5 price. But regardless, I'm getting a customized Moto X for sure.

    Well I have played with a nexus 5 since Monday and could not get my moto x out of my head the whole time. Nexus went on eBay last night and not looking back. Size and abilities decided it for me not to mention form factor. My wife is happy too(its been a tough decision) ;-) I have never been this torn between two phones before and I've had a lot of androids starting with a Samsung moment. Android sure has come along way huh?

    The "killer app" was the addition of TRIM support starting in 4.3 (and the Moto X has it on 4.2.2). Sluggish performance over time has been what doomed older Android devices, but now that has been pretty much fixed. While 2-yr old phones (especially the ones with carrier bloat and manufacturer skins) are seeming pretty weak right now, I bet in 2 years that the Moto X/N5/etc running stock Android will still perform great.

    Kind of like PCs; it used to be that a 3 yr old PC was terrible to use. Now you can take a 5yr old PC and slap an SSD and an extra stick of RAM in, and it runs like a new computer.
