Without a doubt!!! Gnex had great promise but never delivered. Moto X best smartphone I've ever had, hands down!

Definitely a big upgrade over the GNex. I'd even trade my S4 for one :p

God yes. As a former Galaxy Nexus user, I can say the Moto X is a fantastic upgrade.

I had the Gnex for over 2 years and now use the Moto X. After trying out the LG G2 for a week and the Nexus 5 which I own. I am wonderfully satisfied with the Moto X as a daily driver. My Nexus 5 is more of a tool/toy now not that it is a bad device it is more powerful. I just don't need what the Nexus 5 offers on a daily basis its way more than is needed for my uses. The Moto X and its feature set is a perfect fit with function.

Huge improvement. I came from the Gnex a few months ago.

Re: is the x worth it over the galaxy nexus

how do i get that education promotion and will that work on a moto G?

It's only for the moto x I got an email from them about it but you have to have a college email address

The moment I got the moto x, I threw my GN on the ground and stomped on it. What a piece of ****e
Moto x is fantastic

I also had the Galaxy Nexus(vzw model).
I will go along with everyone else and agree that its an improvement over the GN.
I dont think you will regret updating to it.

I do not miss my gnex st all! I definitely don't miss the terrible battery life. If nothing else the battery on my moto x is so much better.

Re: is the x worth it over the galaxy nexus

I switched from the VZW Gnex as well. Nothing to really miss since the Moto X is just a better phone that is pretty much stock as well. Battery life is soooooo much better and everything is so much smoother. I loved my Gnex for the custom roms and extras I could tweak with it, but I don't miss it at all now. I never did anything major, mostly stock roms with small extras. The only thing I kinda do miss about my GNex is that the ROMS let me tether my unlimited plan over wifi with no problems. Really no big deal though. Definitely worth the upgrade over a 2+ year old phone GNex.

+ 1 former VZW Gnex user.
Moto X is everything I wanted out of the Gnex and never got.
You'll wonder why you waited.
