    Having been away from Android for quite sometime I'm not quite sure how everything syncs these days. I ordered my new Moto X last night and was wondering when I receive it and log-in to my google account, will all my old apps from previous phones years ago (all the apps that are listed under "My Apps" on google play) automatically begin syncing? I would like to make sure that does not happen.

    It will ask you if you want to do that. Just pay close attention and uncheck the box that says to sync apps.

    Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe right after you sign in it asks if you want to sync/backup automatically from Google servers. It is checked by default, but if you turn that off you'll be OK.

    Thank you.
    if its more than a year all those backup would be deleted by Google. to verify go here https://www.google.com/settings/dashboard and check under Android.
    if there is no data under ur old device, its deleted.

    also like said above you can uncheck that settings when you login.

    there will be two settings 1. To backup all phone settings(which i recommend doing it) 2. to restore from backup(this is what u have to uncheck)

    Maybe I wasn't paying attention, but I had to install all the apps manually.
    I didn't really mind. It gave me one last chance to reconsider bloating up my phone.
