Moto X or Nexus 5
Can you guys give me your opinion on which one I should consider?
If you have a contract on AT&T, T-Mobile, or Sprint then the Nexus 5 via Google; you can't beat a flagship device for $350 (16GB) or $400 (32GB).
The Sprint version of the Nexus 5 is $150 if you have a contract or $450 off contract, though their site doesn't specify what storage capacity you're getting.
There are already hundreds of broken LG Nexus Phones, you can read about all the unhappy owners on the google forums for Nexus. The Nexus 5 is a very delicate phone that virtually REQUIRES a large hybrid case for peace-of-mind for the owner.
I know, I own *THREE* Nexus-5 phones.
Therefore, the Moto-X is SIGNIFICANTLY smaller because it does not require a case nearly as much as the Nexus-5, and the Nexus-5 requires a larger and complex hybrid case. I have friends who have already broken Nexus 5 phones ensconced in quality TPU cases. The large size and light weight equates to low density, which means the phone probably flexes more than most smart phones, which makes it far easier to crack the glass. And the glass is bonded to the LCD, making this a very, very expensive ($200) repair ...
something else to consider if you are looking to buy the phone and sign a contract the Moto X goes on sale on Monday and brings it down to the Nexus 5 prices.
Both phones are great devices and have similar pros and cons but i would choose the Moto X. I like the extra features they have added to the phone that you don't get on the Nexus 5.
Don't forget the Moto X also comes with the 50GB of Drive storage for 2 years.
Frankly, most websites are not set up to leverage a phone with a 1080p screen, so some of that goodness is wasted - you have to continually click on "go to full website" to take best advantage of the Nexus-5. Next time I might instead get a Moto-X, but don't worry - both would make you happy.
But as Joel pointed out, network frequency may come into play and make your decision for you ;)
*(Motorola doesn't actually care about my country, as seen in the Lack of Moto Maker, the lack of any MAXX phone, and other previous omissions)
Also, you wouldn't believe how convenient Active Display is:)
A good friend of mine has the Moto X and loves the battery life. He started off really liking the always-listen feature but it turns out he doesn't use it often.
Pull up full comparisons and decide which suits you best. Opinions are great and all but everyone has a different one.
It has got the latest and the best processor in it.
A SNAPDRAGON 800
GO GET IT, M SURE YOU WILL.LOVE IT.
ALSO ITS FOR 350$ FOR 16GB AND that too without contract
So no issues whether you have verizon., at&t etc etc.
And for moto x hmmm those active display and voiceless controls
Hmm i dont think they will change the way you use your phone.
But yea as far as price is concerned -
MOTO X is much cheaper than NEXUS 5
STILL I WOULD SAY GO FOR NEXUS 5.
