    I find it interesting that Mot can blast other phones.
    I have had multiple MOT phones and the one that stands out as crap was their flagship phone a couple of years ago...
    Bionic with the headphone whine........

    I hate marketing drivel.
    The device will speak for itself in the face of competition.
    To start bashing the competition make you look weak. Are you weak Mot, are you?

    As a longtime Mot user, I hate to say it but, my next phone is the LG G2.

    I've been saying since before quad core phones came about, that phones are currently going through their own version of the "MHz myth" that happened with desktops and laptops years ago. I think eventually people will come to the conclusion that specs are overrated and experience triumphs specs. There will be a divergence where everything will level off and there will be more parity with specs. I believe it will end up being like gaming PCs and laptops. A niche market

    It's about buzz. Inflammatory comments get people talking, and talking about the Moto X. Mission accomplished.

    Trolling: Level = CEO

    Unfortunately this tactic does work, but it is lowbrow. It gets fanboys & anti-fanboys arguing to no end.

    But it perfectly OK for the HTC one to bash phones by having the slogan "everything your phone isn't".....one again people try and make an argument from idiotic opinions.....it is what it is people, rather you like it or not and to each his own...

    sure Motorola came out with the most popular droid ever in the original droid but since then what have they done besides get rid of a removable battery and get rid of the pure Google experience? (hears crickets) As for HTC.. they lost me with the thunderbolt debacle. Almost got an HTC DNA but because of the thunderbolt debacle went with the s3 and removable battery and sd slot.

    I will never go with another HTC after my thunderbolt...it was a mess...I was getting replacements just about every other week until I had my 7th replacement and I complained and they gave it to me.

    Let not even mention that the thunderbolt had the speakers behind the kickstand...so you had to open it in order to hear it...what a fail idea...Idk I like my moto RAZR maxx. I am not a fan of HTC or Samsung and I really don't think I have what it takes to go to the IPhone. So that only leaves LG AMD Moto for me and unless LG makes another nexus I dnt think I'm going down that path. I dnt like plastic phones and the moto x seems like a great alternative for me.

    I stopped buying HTC after my Imagio. Their quality scared the hell out of me after that. I busted out my Motorola Q9M the other day to play with. Duel stereo speakers that actually still sound great when playing music. Not such a revolutionary idea now.

    If battery life is your chief goal motorola gives good battery life. Personally, I'd like to see an octocore processor and then add the new graphics processors along with their software wizardry to make the fastest, most powerful smartphone ever built. I can live with less battery life. I'm rarely far from a charger for long.

    Current Phone Model:
    Note 10+
    Maybe he should talk about the biggest fail IMO = no sd card and no battery to replace....Everyone has different taste so it's good to have choices ..When I go looking for a phone I try to upgrade to features on a new phone compared to what I'm currently using ....Moto X will not be replacing my N2 ....different type of animals ..I like my beast !!LOL

    I don't care for all the gimmicks ..personally I like to pick up my Note2 when I need to use it...I don't go for all this talk with the screen off features everyone is so in love with lately....just me now everyone is different ...That's what makes Android choices the best....

    Carry on....I enjoy the posts here....:p

    I rooted my tbolt 6 months in and never, ever had a problem after that.. except choosing which rom I liked best. Still keep the tbolt on a stand by my bed on wifi for all my morning emails etc. The screen still looks better than this motorola. The white is way too warm for me and blue looks washed out. The specs say moto has a better screen than that old tbolt but my eyes prefer the tbolt. Bit of a blunderbuss with the extended battery but made battery life as good as my moto. Strangely, I'm not a fan of super slim designs. I find a thicker phone more comfortable to hold. Even with its inferior hardware running gingerbread aosp rom it is just as fast as this motorola since I was able to dump all the bloat and run a much smaller rom. I'd probably prefer a google edition razr maxx with current hardware than the overboated locked tight moto's to come.
