    Man I am torn. I ordered a white one today with the $60 off promo code. For $139 I had to at least order one, but not sure if I want to keep it or not. Will be here tomorrow morning so I have a decision to make.

    Have really been liking my S4, but I do enjoy the stock experience of my Nexus 7 and would like to see the same in my phone.

    The camera on the S4 is really nice but I don't think the one on the X would be bad enough to deter me away. I might have a problem as others do with the screen, I do love just looking at my phone because the screen is so great.

    Like others I use Nova and have no lag problems, simply rooted running stock other than that. I hate being a slave to new technology.

    Well it is here. Charging now, have not turned it on. Feels really nice in the hand, though I am kind of wishing I ordered the black one. The white was has some visible "stuff" that can be seen under the back cover, my OCD will drive me crazy on that one.

    Still not sure what to do with this thing. If I decide to keep it I might use my 14 day return to take it back and get black instead.

    Will see how I like the phone after letting it charge and powering it on.

    I love the simplicity of the Moto X. I chose the S4 instead right after the announcement though, mainly because of the delayed release and lack of customization from VZW.

    On my S4 I've been running CM10.1 (and now CM 10.2) with DynamicDisplay and I can't see picking the Moto X at this point. The ONLY things that I want from the Moto X now are the "OK, Google" always listening Google now and trusted bluetooth devices that allows a lock screen bypass when connected. I think I probably only have a few weeks to wait before devs port those features over. I'm averaging 12-14 hours of moderate to heavy-moderate use until my battery drops to 30%-15%. Under heavy strain and wifi tethering my S4 gets 9 hours. I just can't complain about my S4 and I don't regret choosing it over the Moto X, which is weird because I wanted the Moto X so badly.

    How is the S4's camera on CM? Is it worse than running Touchwiz?

    I am curious about this too, when I had CM 10.1 on the July nightly builds that was my only complaint was the camera was terrible. That is why I have been running stock TW. I have not seen any of the 10.2 builds, so if that is addressed that might take away my need for the Moto X. Who's camera is its only downside as well.
