    If you live or work in an area with low signal, go with Motorola. Motorola phones are much better at pulling in weak signals, and the audio quality is better as well. Battery performance is better on the Motorola devices as well.

    Motorola makes better hardware than HTC in my opinion but locking down the bootloader and blur is making me choose HTC as my next device.

    I am leaving Motorola because of their policy of locking the bootloader.

    I loved my D1 and would have been loyal to Motorola but they blew it. Not only that but Blur is a train wreck.

    HTC seems to actually want us! Motorola actually told us to go elsewhere.

    Bye Bye Motorola!

    I have always used HTC devices from my WinMo days. I switched to MOTO w/ the D1 and then the D2 and it was because the D1 was ahead of the Eris hardware and software wise. Keep in mind that even knowing how far behind the Eris was I was still very tempted to go w/ it because of my HTC bias. I have always thought without modification the HTC devices always look and feel better. Their quality breeds customer loyalty.

    Sense is by far the most polished UI that any manufactures have placed over stock. I still prefer stock android, but if using a manufacturer skin I would gladly use Sense. Mainly because it is less buggy, aesthetically pleasing, and they have had more time to polish their UI. If you have ever used a HTC keyboard you will also hate the D1 keyboard. Not sure what else to say.

    I have stuck with Moto for my last 3 phones, with the locked bootloaders i am jumping ship.

    You said your a phone enthusiast so i would say go with HTC for customization options. But then you mentioned you don't even root, so, its really a toss up then, i guess Moto would better suit you if the bootloader isnt an issue for you.
