Your opinion is worth more than $.02 and I totally agree. I was at first (over a month ago) looking seriously at the Moto X. I started doing research, reading all pre-release reviews, comparing specs and decided on the Maxx. It had everything the Moto X had except a pretty? coloured back and more! I pre-ordered , got it on the 20th and it has been the best phone I have ever had. I liked the Droid X, Bionic was excellent but this thing is so fast and smooth I can't believe it. Moto has hit it out of the park with this X8 processor and power saving features.
