    I went back to my moto x after trying all the new phones. Until the LG G3. I thought it'd be too big because I lived the form factor of the X. I went on vacation with my brother who had the G3 so I got to play with it all week.

    I went and got one the next day. I'm not saying its better in all aspects, but for what I use its a fit for me.

    The size isn't that bad. It actually feels mor pocketable because its so thin. The screen is amazing. The camera isn't even in the same league.

    However I do miss the active notifications and a few other things.

    I was going to wait but all the new phones are pretty much the same size so I decided to get the best screen and camera that's out since I use the camera quite a bit. Plus the micro SD is a huge plus. The new one not having was kinda a bummer for me.

    Plus my wife has the moto x so I can always get it back haha

    I acknowledge that overall it's a probably a better phone. I certainly have the means to get it. However, I don't need it. I'm not unsatisfied with my current Moto X. If I were to get the new one, I'd mainly be buying it because it's new. I just don't have a good enough reason to buy it right now, especially at $500.
    I also agree with your point. I was contemplating buying the new Moto X full retail out even though I'm eligible in January from your phone. In fact, if I were going to get a new phone, it would probably be the new moto x. Now as far as real world battery life, if it's anything like the car moto X its decent at about 10 to 11 hours depending on your usage of course. The second I start to stream heavily off youtube or anything similar to that I kill it...

    Keeping my OG Moto X. It is just as fast as the day I got it. I keep it in an Otterbox Commuter so it is in perfect shape. I have no reason to upgrade this go around. Maybe when the Moto X 2015 comes out...

    Whereas I bought the X for the form factor. The other phone I was seriously considering was the Samsung mini. So this one doesn't interest me.

    I'm still very happy with the Moto X, and looking forward to updated software, but I confess the Sony Xperia compact has caught my eye. I'll probably stick with this one, but I'll at least check out the Sony if it ever makes it to US shops.

    As long as my current Moto X works I see no reason to move. I do not like the increase in size and I think that and the increase in resolution were strictly marketing ploys for the spec-head reviewers. If/when I get to the point of needing a new phone I'll try to replace it with the 2013 Moto X. If that's not available, though, I will consider any phone that has a similar feature set (therefore, probably Motorola). Phones larger than my Moto X (which, incredibly, now includes the Moto G!) will rate lower than similarly sized phones.

    I rarely upgrade my phones on a yearly cycle. The first gen Moto X is still going strong.

    If Motorola implemented F2FS for the file system in the new Moto X and new Moto G like they did with the first generation phones, the new Moto X may outlast the 2014 flagships.

    That is true that is true. The Moto X is niche phone that's why it doesn't sell a lot...

    I'm sticking my moto x 1st gen, but if a fire sale happens I may jump to buy. The product itself looks way more premium to me, and I wouldn't mind a slightly bigger phone. Plus, the IR sensor will be useful when I'm studying or sleeping.

    I plan on getting it since my upgrade is due, however I just paid off my og X and don't see the need to get it right away. I want to see how the leather holds up after a few months and maybe some other back options later.

    Biggest draw is the camera. Looks like less lag. I'm content with the current one, but miss close focus distance from my S3. I don't mind any software processing issues since I usually tweak all my keepers in the editor anyway. So a little vibrance and contrast bump is no big deal.

    I thought about upgrading, but declined, since:

    A) I just got mine in July for a little over $300
    B) IMO, the Moto X Developer Edition is the closest to a Nexus phone on Verizon
    C) There won't be any new Developer Edition on VZW for the new Moto X based on published reports
    D) That means that B) will probably be true or at least another year.

    Other than camera lags? How is the end result by the Moto X's camera?

    You know, honestly I know people just dislike the original moto X's camera, I don't have a problem with it too much and I do enjoy taking pictures with my phone the photos aren't the most amazing greatest pictures in the world, but they still get the job done without a doubt.

    Agree with you. But the only time I don't, is when my wife takes the same pic with her G3 and it looks a lot better, then I get a little upset.

    Yes, I do coos you. For example, my mom has a galaxy note 2, and whenever she takes pictures with her phone, her pictures do look more vivid than mine do. Now, is that enough reasoning to me enough to buy the new Moto X? No. It just isn't... Now, whenever I'm eligible for a phone in the future, it'll be something for me to look into, but I never honestly complained about the picture quality of my moto x.

    Haha I have a Nexus 5, it was also originally criticised for having a bad camera(and still is). I honestly love the camera, though the speed could be a little better. Reviewers really underestimate the camera of some Android devices. :/

    I think that the new Moto X's camera isn't a whole lot better with the results, but it is much faster according to the Verge's review.

    You know, I've heard the same thing about the Nexus 5 camera. I don't really know anyone that has a nexus 5, but I've seen pictures posted online from a nexus 5 and those pictures weren't that bad either... Now, as far as professional looking photos, why the heck would you use a phone for professional looking photos? I mean there's a Samsung Galaxy phones in general have a better quality camera? Yes, I'm sure they do. But at the end of the day the Moto X Nexus 5 cameras aren't nearly as bad as a lot of people make them out to be. So you are right.

    I just bought my GSM developer edition and I was happy to come from the GS4. I like the smaller form factor and this phone just screams.

    I do wish the camera was a little better but I have been able to get some amazing shots with it so far.

    I will not go back to a 5 inch screen.

    I'm on VZW with an unlimited data plan, so I have to pay full price for my phones. That being said, my Moto X is still fantastic, love this phone, and it doesn't make sense to pay full price for another phone only a year later. May as well get as much use out of my current phone as I can, and wait for next years Moto X (Moto X2, Moto X 2015? Idk).
