    Yes I think the phone should be used no case..just feels solid as it ships..and I found it too dirty where I did a double take and even asked the rep wth y'all do with it..lol

    Yeah to be honest 720 is not a bad screen resolution. Looks just fine on my n2. When I look at a 1080 p screen you can tell a difference but on a screen this small it is not enough to make or break a decision for me.

    SO did I and ironically it is the only way to get updates on time, Shame on you Verizon. I still use my galaxy nexus mainly as a remote for my chromecast, an alarm clock, or as a voice over ip (rarely).

    Well as soon as I say I hate the camera, I do a quick comparison and it turns out pretty good mostly. Though in the last set you really begin to see the X/Maxx's weakness and the S4's strength. Each set follows this order, 6 pics - Maxx, Maxx, S4, S4, One One

    Set 1 - no flash, room light
    Set 2 - no flash, lower light
    Set 3 - flash, same subject
    Set 4 - flash, new subject

    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/diyr5z2rux3u9z9/8Hiub-5eA- (make sure they're in alphabetical order)

    Sorry they're not organized better but I was trying to hurry! That last set with the harddrives is what I normally experience with the Maxx on shots with a flash, I was surprised by the first few sets. Also, on both the Maxx and One I was using tap-to-focus... i.e. tap where I want it to focus and it focuses and shoots. The One is by far the fastest of them all, FWIW. I'll try and get some macro sunny shots in a bit but won't be able to put them up until later.

    I was fussing with the X an hour ago at the ATT( NO body in the store was interested in it.. all the time I was handling it) store in Little Falls, after awhile I came to this assessment. - Nice ..but..Ill wait for the ....MOTO X2. ...SO ,MY new HTC One sits unboxed ..ready for the xfer. Could not pa$$ up the VEZRION30 promo and that power player of a device is "just Right ", for big hands and daily usage.

    As nice as the x is no way I could see getting it over the ultra maxx. That thing is nice. I could see getting the ultra maxx over the s4 and HTC one for the battery life alone. But again that is based on me messing with it in the store for 5 mins and knowing I am going to have to pass on having a good camera.

    This is why Moto's cpu intrigues me. It may seem like an underwhelming processor, but the fact that it has so many cores doing different things I bet it could run just about as smooth as the big spec devices. Hopefully Moto perfects this new chip and chooses to bump up the resolution of their next wave of devices, well 3rd wave when my upgrade is available, would like to use Moto again. After being spoiled by the s4 though I think I need a 1080p screen and at least close to 5" screen.

    Exact kinda feedback I was looking for regarding performance for the X, and Moto in general.

    Great review and spot on. I thought it was garbage at first and I was not impressed with it. Until I played around with my friends Moto X. I was very impressed with the feel and the speed of it. The battery life is great but Moto failed again with the camera. Again Excellent review PC747!!! :clap:

    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. :)
