    Hey everyone. I'm in a conundrum of sorts. What would you do in my situation? I have a guy who was lucky enough to get the new Moto X at the Motorola conference in Chicago a little over a week ago and now he has offered to sell it to me for close to what it will cost new (whenever they start selling them to the public). It is the standard default matte black back. So my question is this- should I wait until the Moto X is released to the public and have a customized one but pay a bit more (<$100) or buy this one from him and have the phone now?

    If it were me I'd bite assuming it works on your network, etc. Customization is cool, but so is not waiting

    I have never been the type to want thing early. I like to read some reviews and for the first 30 days a warranty is nice.

    Well, I got it! My wait is finally over and I have to say, I LOVE the phone. A perfect upgrade to the original Moto X.

    I already have the 2013 Moto X. Is it worth an upgrade?

    Depends. The biggest complaints I had with the original Moto X were how slow it was and the mediocre camera. This new Moto X is MUCH faster and has a better camera... just what the doctor ordered. Other great advantages of getting the new one: new & improved Moto software and the screen size (though the size may deter you if you love the small form factor of the original X). The rest is pretty much the same from what I can tell.
    Hope this helps!

    I already have the 2013 Moto X. Is it not worth it to me to upgrade at this time. Your mileage may vary depending on your wants and needs.

    It does. I can't really complain about anything and it seems like most of the software improvements are coming eventually to the G1 model. Maybe I will put my cash towards replacing my "ancient" nexus 7.
