    I've owned a Moto G (2014) for approximately a month now. Here is a thread describing my issues with the phone:

    http://forums.androidcentral.com/and...ml#post4345500

    Considering that the Moto X (2013) is only slightly more expensive than the Moto G (2014), would you suggest going for it? Why or why not?

    It's definitely a step up from the Moto G, which my mother has. It has better processors, more RAM, and has a bunch of features the G does not have. (although slightly smaller screen) I bought my X a month ago and love it. It's fast enough and does everything I need a phone to do, plus more. The hands free driving features are awesome.

    I saw a one day sale on ebay for a 32gb Dev Edition for $199 last week which was awesome. Something like that may pop up again.

    Now this is from my own experience but I've found that the Moto X (2013) is a very solid phone even now. I bought the Developer Edition of it when it was on sale on Amazon back in January and February this year and haven't regretted buying it at all. Phone is snappy fast and very reliable. Get better signal reception with this phone than I did with my previous phone (Samsung Galaxy S3). If you get a Moto X, try to go for the 32GB model. That gives you plenty of room to put all of your apps, pictures and any music that you may have on your phone. I've got an extensive music collection (over 1,000 songs), an extensive wallpaper collection (over 400 pictures that I created on my computer [at least 99% of them]), pictures of my nephews and niece, plus all of my apps and I still have a little over 10GB free space on my phone. The camera on it is very nice too. I use it when I want to get pictures of my nephews and niece at a moments notice and they all turned out very nice. But then again, I did have good subjects too.

    Hope that this helps you out.

    I've had my x for a couple months now. Best android phone I've owned. Coming from the galaxy s4 it was a huge improvement as far as I'm concerned. I think it's still a great phone to buy today.

    Feature-wise, I'd pick the first gen Moto X over a second gen Moto G.

    I've watched numerous vids about the 2nd gen X, and I'm not sure what you mean. If I could afford it, I would get the 2nd gen in a heartbeat, but mainly for the bigger screen. Could you elaborate?

    I think he was talking about the 2nd generation of the Moto G versus the 1st generation of the Moto X. From what I've seen about the Moto G (Gen 2), it still doesn't stack up as well as the Moto X (Gen 1) in my opinion. I don't think that the Moto G has the active display that the Moto X has does it? I also don't think you can get as much memory for the Moto G as you can for the Moto X. I know this because at one time I was seriously thinking about getting the Moto G. Changed my mind after doing some research on it.

    It's absolutely worth it to get the 2013 X. It outperforms the 2014 G by quite a bit, and the added features are very useful. Active Display is worth it on its own. If you can find the 32GB Developer Edition for a good price ($200-$220 or so), jump on it. I got mine on sale on Ebay late last year and I'm loving it.

    Correct. The one thing the 2014 G has that the X doesn't is the micro SD card slot, but a 32GB model makes up for a lot of that.

    That's true but you know I'm not missing the SD card slot at all. This is the first phone I've had that didn't have a SD card and removable battery. Battery life is great on this phone compared to the phones I've had in the past.

    What carrier are you with? I'm with Verizon Wireless (for now) and the Moto G is only available on the Verizon Prepaid service. Not available on their postpaid accounts for some reason. Go figure.

    I did just go through the thread with your issues with Moto G. I haven't had any of the issues that you outlined in that thread at all. Right now, the Moto X 2013 version is still on KitKat but is on track to be updated to Android 5.1.

    Hope that this helps you out.

    I've seen a couple of vids but I don't know whether I should take them with a pinch of salt because there are vids claiming that the S4 is better than the Moto X and there aren't any lags on the former, but just one Google search will tell you the truth...

    My friend has 1st gen G and my aunt has the 2nd G. I have checked them both out and compared to my xt1056 and my former xt1053de. The X is better just in the features it offers, let alone it's is still better hardware wise.

    I feel the biggest negative is that camera. It's very decent with enough light. However, if it's night time, forget about it. But since you're not a camera person, then that wouldn't matter to you.

    It's a beautiful phone and whenever I take off my case, I get comments about it all the time about how good looking it is (the wood back does help). My favorite part of the design is how small the bezels are and consequently the reduced physical dimensions. It has a the screen of an iPhone 6 while being much smaller.

    Now, I know this nitpicking, but what bothers me from time to time is the slightly yellow tint of the screen. Whites are more "creamy" than other phones'.

    I think the 2013 x is still worth it. It is still a good little phone. I owned one for a long time until I did something stupid and broke the microphone. I am now using an LG G2 and I like it a lot, but there are things I miss about the x all the time. The only thing I don't miss is the camera. Camera is important to me though so if you don't take a lot of photos it may not be a big deal to you.

    Thanks for your inputs guys.

    I seem to be getting a good deal on here: http://www.eageworld.com/motorola-moto-x---16gb---black

    Should I go for it or does it look iffy? Yes, I've noticed that it has a seller warranty for 6 months. Thoughts?

    And another thing I wanted to ask is if the 16 GB internal memory is sufficient?

    I first had 16. Needed to keep it lean and content that I used. When I got the 32, way more storage and never had an issue running out.

    Unfortunately, the 32 GB variant is not available in India. Do you mind taking a look at this link: http://www.eageworld.com/motorola-moto-x---16gb---black and tell me whether this is a reasonable purchase or does it look fishy?

    I don't know what the average is in India, but you can get an unlocked 32 gig used for about 2/3 of that price for a US GSM unlocked version (used). You may want to see if it's bands work with your carrier. It does have some international ones.

    I bought a xt1053de four months ago for less than $300.
