Default At $299, should I grab the Moto X?

I'm needing to replace my Samsung Relay Slider soon - in fact, I bought a Moto E last month but had to return it because of a bad screen. I had the E long enough to decide I wanted more than the absolute base model, so I was going to get a Moto G, largely because they've added an SD slot to the LTE version.

But when I got on the Motorola site, it turns out they're running a sweet $100 off deal on the Moto X. $299 for the 16GB version, if you let them send a Net10 SIM along for the ride. The phone is still unlocked, so as far as I can tell, I should be able to pitch the Net10 SIM in the trash and put in my T-Mobile SIM.

$300 for the Moto X vs. $220 for the Moto G seems like a pretty sweet deal. The only thing that has me on the fence is the SD card slot. I've got the 32GB SD card that I bought for the E staring me in the face, mocking me.

I'm really leaning toward the G at that price... and I only have until 7/16 to decide, apparently, because that's when the Net10 deal ends. Should I go for it? Or will the price on the X drop even more when the X-1 comes out? Or will I be disappointed with the 16GB of internal, non-expandable memory?

Update: I couldn't take the suspense, so I ordered the phone. So please use this thread to let me know if I made a mistake! (There's always the 14-day return window...)
