    Well with no touchless controls or active notifications I can honestly say that the Nexus doesn't even entice me a bit and with the rumors that the camera is subpar even more of a reason to stay put. My brother has been waiting for Nexus announcement and asked "what do you think I should get?" With confidence I answered the moto x man. You just can't beat the features and functionality. Now with Moto confirming 4.4 we will be at the front of the race still.

    My 2cents.

    I am definitely sticking with the X because I love its form factor and its abilities. However, the nexus 5 may have tricks up its sleeves and there is always its hardcore fans. For those debating whether to get the X or 5 than I suggest trying both in-store before deciding. Some people may like flashing their own ROMS and etc...

    I do like my Moto X but could not pass up the Nexus 5. I like the Nexus devices and plan to use them both! Already got my case and screen protector for the N5. Certainly larger than the Moto X but lighter and certainly lends itself to one handed use if you want to.

    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 was thinking the same. Getting the n5 I'm a nexus fanboy beyond belief.

    Problem is this: Motorola is doing a fantastic job updating the device. Adding more and more to the phone as days go by while maintaining dam near stock.. Also they are updating stuff through the play store (camera for instance) the nexus has a lot of channels to go through..

    Pros: you get major updates fast
    Cons: other updates may take awhile where Motorola is proving they are a great company that can keep their devices up to date

    I got my Nexus 5 TPU case and screen protector today. While bigger than the S4, it is barley so... certainly can use one handed. Got the 32GB for under $450, so could not resist! I saw they are already sold out so glad I jumped on one.

    Yes I was definitely pleasantly surprised at the price! Great deal indeed! Let me know how it compares to your moto x.

    I'm happy I picked the Moto X, I know I would be twiddling my thumbs waiting for the next resupply of the N5 knowing it'll sell out in minutes like the N4 did. The camera update today improved pictures.

    And it's smaller than my HTC One X which sits better in my pant pocket.

    I get 5-7hrs screen time on my moto x. 1 more hour max isn't that big of a deal to me and 8hrs is their claim with LTE off.

    You can add active notifications to N5 with dynamic notifications app. Phones seem to be pretty similar, but I'll have to see some reviews of N5 before deciding.

    With Google only updating for 18 months vs Moto for 24, the X might end up on a higher version android at EOL

    I guess I'm in the luxury boat because I don't plan on not buying moto x 2

    I'm also surprised nobody mentioned physical size.
    A lot of nerds like myself Love Nexus/Stock Android, but still long for the days when phones were realistically sized.
    Just because I'm nerdy doesn't mean I don't want to slip the phone in my pocket and not ruin my lines.

    I'm surprised they made the Nexus that size. I figured it would have been the same as the N4, just with a bigger screen. If you have a Sony store nearby, check out the Xperia ZL which is basically a Z with a much smaller form factor and no waterproofing. The ZL is barely bigger than my X, but has a 5" screen. I was hoping Google would be around that size, but no dice.

    Definitely sticking with the X for sure. I'd say it's the perfect size for a phone right now.

    Idk what issues you're having. I've gotten 5-7 hours of gaming alone. My phone literally lasts me from 9am until about 11pm on normal usage. Streaming from Google Play Music, Youtube, Twitter, Google+, surfing the web, talk time, Hangouts, camera, etc. This is daily. I've never experienced anything near this good with another phone. Moto X does especially well when it's low on power. Seems to give an extra jolt of battery life in the end. Besides, I have Verizon :-/

    So true, I have yet to kill the phone. Two days ago I used the phone like crazy and actually got it to 1% at around 8pm (my classes end at 10pm). The phone kept going on 1% until I got home, even then it didn't die, but I still plugged it in. So heads up to everyone, when your X is at 1% it really is at like 25%

    Big fan of stock Android Nexus, but completely happy with my Moto X. It gets awesome battery life and I couldn't stand to have a phone any bigger than this size..

    Still not the same and no where near as power efficient
