    I've got a turbo. Great device. I've been approached with a trade for a Moto X. Should I stick to my guns or go with the X? I know I'm gonna get a one sided opinion, posting here in this sub forum but I'm looking for a little insight. Thank you. Both models are 32gb just to clarify.

    With the Moto X you'd be downgrading your battery, screen, camera, and lose wireless charging (I'm sure there are other features you'd lose as well).

    Moto X is a nice device but I wouldn't do it.

    I should add that it's the newer model moto X. If that makes a difference

    With LP lurking on the horizon for the Turbo, why change. Battery alone makes the Turbo superior.

    No, I think what PowrDroid was suggesting was based on the current model. I agree. Unless the Turbo is just physically too large (and it really isn't that much larger, though it is quite a bit heavier), or you are annoyed that it gets android updates at a much slower schedule than the X, I'd also stay with the Turbo.

    Still a relative downgrade I'm terms of specs. I mean you posted in the turbo forum. To a different point if view, ask the same question in the moto x forums too.

    What the turbo has against it though, its an exclusive to vzw and it's still on kit kat, although that should be changing soon as there is a soak test coming.

    Thank you all. I had a feeling that the turbo is far superior. I just wanted to hear it from the turbo heads. I don't know every device. I wanted assurance that I was making the right choice

    One more thing: the Turbo has a one time glass breakage warranty that the X, I believe, does not have.

    Better question: Should I go with the Turbo or wait for the 2015 edition of the X to come out?

    Supposedly the X (2015) will have a better battery than the 2014 X and a better camera than last year's X and the Turbo combined.

    I already have a turbo. The main question was to keep it or trade it for a '14 moto x. Not about waiting for anything. But thanks for your input.

    How about fast battery charging? I don't think Moto X (2014) has that. I know the 1st generation didn't.

    As far as I know. Only the nexus 6 and turbo have that ability

    Any phone with a snapdragon 800 series can fast charge. So, yes, the 2014 Moto X does support fast charging. (Lots of other phones do as well, not just the turbo and nexus 6.)

    I'm still surprised at this point the game that everybody doesn't already know this.
