    When you say "better" are you judging by physical size, or real life battery time? 'Cause just about every review I've seen counts battery life in the X as a positive. My real life usage averages about 16 hours (6AM to 10pm) with 4 hours of screen time.

    I was going by the physical size. And comparing it to the S3 which is 2100 I believe and the X is 2200. But maybe the X doesn't have as much bloatware and other features the S3 has so it uses less? But if you are getting that much time that is a good sign.

    Now if only rooting could just be easier. I don't want to flash roms, just root.

    Yes, there has been much discussion about the multiple battery saving technologies that Moto/Google built into the X - the low energy screen, the active notifications, the low draw processor. It's been said MANY times - you can't judge the X by looking at a spec sheet!

    I bought my Moto X outright after reading so many good posts about it and I wanted a smaller phone for work. I like its small size, simple UI, great GPS and radios. The battery is just fine. The active display and touchless controls are handy without being gimmicky. I haven't and probably won't root mine either, it's fine just the way it is. I did add the Power Toggles app because I like having the familiar toggle layout and I use Apex launcher. I do prefer using the S4 or G2 on the weekends though.

    Yeah I'm leaning towards getting this I want to go into a store and actually hold a working model.

    I really hope they continue to update it. I want something that doesn't get old too fast.

    As anybody should understand, the law is changing about carrier locking.
    I believe it is in its infancy at this time, but I am certain a ruling will arrive that forces the carriers to provide unlocking codes when asked, and also be prevented from denying owners of their devices from moving to different carriers when they see fit, instead of locking them and their devices to their system, whether or not they like or approve.
    This must be the ruling, non-subsidized devices are the property of the customer, and not the property of the carrier any longer, so unlocking the devices must be available on demand of the customer.

    A customer that owns his device is now being held hostage by the carrier, and this practice must cease.
    They either unlock the device, or they need to be sued to force them to do so, there is no other way around this.

    I used to be a motorola fan boy. Aside from the camera, their radios and other hardware has always been spot on. Save for reloading a new OS on my phone every so often, most of my Motos (OG Driod, Droid X, OG Razr MAXX) have lasted long after their 2 year life span. My Droid X still makes a decent back up phone. However, their move away from SD Cards has me looking elsewhere. I have an NAS at the house that I can get to remotely but I still require larger than 16 or 32 gigs onboard. My GF has an S4 and i really like it. The Note 2 is stellar as well.

    Not sure what to make of this post other than an opportunity to come in and bash?

    As far as the sdcard, had one in my Razr (phone I had before the X). Rarely if ever used it. Sure I set my camera to send pics and video to the the sdcard but I can do the same with Drive or Dropbox or Box. Don't see this as an issue at all anymore. Do I wish there was an sdcard slot? Of course, better to have and not need, but I've found it not to be a deal breaker at all.

    I just got a brand spanking new 32 GB for Christmas and then I started researching phones and see most phones stopped using them. Kind of annoying. But I have my pictures auto upload to drop box and drive so it isn't a big deal.

    I don't see the draw of SD cards. I learned early on with my GNex that SD cards made me into a digital file hoarder. When I used online storage, I learned SDs were a waste if $.

    Just my opinion.

    I normally prefer phones with SD card slots, currently stuck with two phones that don't support them. O well I only have to make it until the s5.

    I prefer it because then I can easily take the card out and put it in the computer. Just used to it I guess. Not a deal breaker though. I can just put it in the adapter and use it like a normal card in the camera I don't use lol.
