I've heard all this talk about dual core versus single core, etc. etc. multi-threading, Dalvik, etc. etc.
At the end of the day, is there really that much of a difference between the HTC and the MOTO? Personally, I prefer HTC to Moto and the cameras are not even comparable. The MOTOs suck - the Droids were terrible. There are other comparisons but just not sure what they are worth.
I'll have to see what the deals are for these phones because, as of right now, LTE may not be tier priced and may be worth it to jump on the first gen LTE. What worries me is that HTC might be throwing out a substandard phone (still good) because it's the first and within 3 months you'll see far better phones with far better battery life (HTCs are notoriously bad). Some manufacturers are notorious for throwing out crappy phones in increments (see Blackberry which is why they are also failing miserably.) The Droid Pro was an example, few buying it. Bottom line is I don't want to regret purchasing a phone that seems fast now but may be actually too slow for certain things in a year. Weird but something to consider, especially if all phones are going dual core and that may make a difference.
