    The recent camera update went a long way for me and as for the vibration motor, yep, it's harsh but I guess I've gotten used to it because it doesn't bother me any more.
    My first one had a gnarly vibrate.. The one I have now. Not much worse than a normal vibrate.

    Haptic feedback is quite nasty though. I turned that off haha.

    VZN set up wizard? Is that the calling to get your service? Hm. That could change with the 4.4 update. And I think thats one of the main things with 4.4, non Google-Play devices arn't able to use wallet because of carriers, so now with 4.4 wallet should work.
    It is Verizon's assist that is used to set up the phone on first boot from the beginning instead of Google setup.

    Was quoting 'fldude99's reply to my earlier post, not sure why it didn't work.

    'What??!!' what?

    My first point was that I didn't like that the Moto X seems to have the microphone on at all times. first few seconds, screen is off, and he says "Ok Google Now" and it wakes up, even expressly says it turns the screen on. That's listening. I know it's said the chip does the detection, not google online processing.

    Second, I'm on Sprint. They have this new Sprint Spark network in 5 cities, one being Miami, which is where I am. I want to try that, but the Moto X doesn't have Sprint Spark, and the N5 does.

    Third, the price point is another thing. I can get an N5 for $349, and the X is still more than that. I buy my phones off contract whenever possible.

    Lastly, I'd at least wait for Moto Maker for non-AT&T phones. As in I'd want to at least wait for Moto Maker on Sprint, as I have a real dislike for AT&T.

    I don't remember the setup wizard on my X.
    I factory reset trying to get that red check looking setup wizard from making me go through it.

    I got my Nexus 5 this week and have been using it as my daily driver. Missing some things about my Moto X but I committed to 2 weeks to give my Nexus 5 a fair shake. So far the Nexus has performed well. I made some notes on some areas in which these devices offer a better experience in my opinion.

    Moto X Pros

    Active Notifications- They are just so useful. I installed dynamic notifications and they are better than nothing but not the same. Also REALLY miss my clock and lock screen coming up when I pick up my Moto X.
    Touchless Controls- Just so useful to be able to use this feature with the screen off.
    Battery Life- The Moto X is a brute on the battery life.
    Heft and feel in the hand- The Moto X shape and weight combine to make it feel better in the hand.
    Stock Camera App- From the twist opening to the interface, I just like it better.
    Speaker- No contest here, the Moto X just blows the Nexus speaker out of the water.

    Nexus 5 Pros

    Larger full HD screen with larger icons- Nice beautiful screen. Offers a nice experience for reading and browsing and netflix etc.
    Android 4.4 Kit kat- Lots of improvements and Google Now is more tightly integrated. The best android OS going.
    Faster OS updates- The hallmark of a Nexus. If this is important to you, keep this in mind. Many say the Moto will be updated quickly, but not like a Nexus.
    Google Wallet- Just something I use often. Simple to use and works fine on the Nexus 5.
    Better Call Quality (from earpiece)- Calls have been surprisingly strong and clear!
    Wireless Charging- Another thing I like to use. It is simple to have my charging mat and just top off if needed without working about a cord.
    Off Contract Price- Can be a big factor to some. Both of mine are 32GB models and I paid $445 for the Nexus and $574 for the Moto X with tax and shipping.

    I swap the SIM. Had to go to a Nano for the Moto X but have a good adapter I use for Micro SIM phones like the Nexus 5.
    Planoman,
    What adapter do you use?

    That's good to hear. I ordered the same brand so I could use it between the X and my One. Was worried that's one I got my X the adapter would get stuck in the One.

    That's an amazing amount of dough for a cellphone. I know it's possible you didn't have an upgrade, but how do you, or anybody else here justify $450-500 if available on a contract? What is people's aversion to a contract? It seems like even with the ETF added to the subsidized price doesn't equal what many pay for this device without a contract

    Nature of the biz I think. Some people want to change devices much more often or on their own schedule, rather than on a carrier's plan. Some have grandfathered plans that they want to keep and they're unaware of loopholes.

    6-9 months after release many devices can be resold for a decent price. After that its much worse the longer that you wait. A 2 year old phone is worth very little.

    To a point though.... If Verizon, AT&T and Sprint don't lower your fees when you are not on contract... You may as well use the loopholes and take their money for the subsidy.

    Interesting. I'd have thought the X had better call quality since Motorola has always been good with that

    Yes, I was not comparing signal or radios. Just the ear speaker loudness and clarity.

    I'm currently on Verizon and have a grandfathered unlimited data plan plus a promotion that they ran for unlimited data + messaging for a great price. In order for me to keep both I have to buy my phone off contact and pay full price (unaware of any other ways around this). It sucks but it's a necessary evil IMO!

    Plus I have the Dev Edition :P

    Cool...but I can't imagine if you did the math that paying 3 times more for a device would outweigh losing your grandfathered plan. Who needs unlimited data anyway? Almost all plans have unlimited messaging now with upwards of 6GB of data. But no big deal..to each his own. I'm just trying to understand the logic of paying such a large amount for a phone

    This. I do not wait for my upgrade to get a device. Like Nothingistrue said well taken care of phones can be sold for a decent price. I sell several phones a year and buy new ones. Just sold a 16GB Moto X and S4 Google Edition to buy the 32GB Moto X and Nexus 5.
