    all the reviews i have read all pretty much say this is a good phone has a chance but the price is a little too high. with that being said who is going to get it? The more i read the more i am leaning to getting it. The only people that seem to not like it are on forums.

    The battery life reported by Droid Life doesn't seem as good as Engadget was impressed. The best DL got was 57% left after 9 hours of light usage. That equates to about total 21 hours of light usage. The engadget guy got well over one day with his normal usage though he didn't say details on that.

    Not sure whom to trust more, but if it's more like what DL got it's similar to GS3 I think.

    Sounds like anyone who uses this phone normally (calls, texts, emails, GPS, light browsing) is going to get great battery life. Dunno about you guys, but I never watch HD movies or play games on my phone.

    The more I read about the X, the more excited I am to get one. Now I have to decide if I want to swap to T-mobile from Verizon and if I want to wait to customize a phone.

    Well considering no one outside of forums even know this exist yet, lol.

    I think most people like it but just think it is a little overpriced.

    You will be happy with battery life of X then, especially if you are coming from Rezound. In fact pretty much any phone with Qualcomm S4 series chip that came after rezound got quantum leap on battery life on 4G/LTE. My Razr HD with S4 chip, 2530mAh can go two days of light usage easily.

    Even if it's close to GS3, it's not bad at all. But I was expecting a bit better after seeing Engadget's report.

    This is not so much a review but an interview Cnet did with one of the Motorola engineers... some really excellent points about the tech being used a lot of which EarlyMon as pointed out as well.

    Top Motorola engineer defends Moto X specs (Q&A) | Mobile - CNET News

    The only part I dont really care for is his defense of the low memory and no expandable storage, he really seems to avoid the question more then anything.

    GSMarena review.

    Motorola Moto X review: Talk to me - GSMArena.com

    They seem to be impressed with moto x camera. Similar to GS4 in detail/sharpness but less noise. But I don't see that from samples in anandtech review. I guess there is some QC issue with camera in early batch, so it varies between reviewers a lot.

    Or GSMarena didn't do many lowlight shots is the more likely scenario. They only took two ffs. Every pic I've seen from the Moto X in a bar or restaurant has been horrible (reminds me very much of my Maxx HD :().
