    I'm thinking about it. Looking into it now. Need a replacement this winter for my Galaxy Nexus, which has been a good phone for me, but the chip needed more horsepower so I'm sensitive to the tech specs.

    I am in your same boat. I have been running CM 10.1.2 and it has been nice but there is definitely lag that drives me crazy sometimes. The Moto X looks very promising but it will come down to price and battery life.

    The rumors of the $199 price point is very enticing, I can only hope it hits around that. The battery has had many rumors around it everything from 1500mAh to 2200mAh. I want the maximum battery life from my next smartphone, if it's at 2200mAh I think it will be sufficient. The other rumor that holds promise is of the removable cover and the possibility of a removable battery. This would be cool.

    I just bought 2 new Anker 2200mAh batteries for the old Galaxy Nexus and it has breathed new life into the device's lasting power. I had been using the original 1850mAh battery since day one and it was showing it's age.

    If the Moto X doesn't deliver then I will wait for the Nexus 5 or even possible one of the upcomint Motorola releases.

    We will know a lot more about the Moto X next month.

    He has the phone in his hands, yes... which maybe he loves it. Can just as easily be a subtle intentional "visual leak" to stir attention. These things happen.

    He posed for those photos with the phone. It was an intentional move by the company

    In any event, more to the point... I'd like to upgrade sometime in August. Am I going to get the Moto X? How can I say before it's even been announced with all that it will entail, price, etc? It's on the radar. So is the HTC One, so is the Razr Maxx HD.

    We shall see.

    It really depends on the price but if the rumored $199 to $299 off-contract price is true it shall be mine and I shall name it fluffy and it shall be mine.

    Where are you guys getting that 199 price point, I would have it so quick at that price because that is pure solid bang for your buck

    I'm just having doubts on the specs but like aron on phone dog said it's not set in stone till released but a dual core processor compared to my current quad core would be a let down buylt 200$ off contract price would not be bad

    I'm not deterred by the specs at all. The AnTuTu bencmark has the processor far exceeding the SGS3 and passing by the SG Note II. But when it comes to the graphics, 3DMark gives the Moto X an Ice Storm Extreem score of 7143 and a graphics score of 7187. This blows the HTC One out of the water by more than 1000 points on each.

    I almost got the S4 a few times but kept waiting on the X and the Droid Ultra Maxx came out of no where. I am now passing on the S4. I do like the Maxx for what will be outstanding battery life but I am now 70% certain I will get the X. The latest rumors have it $299 and $349.

    I am really wanting the X now, but I am still unsure about it for Verizon. I am starting to lean towards it not actually coming out on Verizon or if it does, not for that price.

    Moto X for me!

    My pros...
    Moto build quality.
    Awesome price if rumors hold up $299-$349.
    Basically a very near stock experience.
    Great size, not a fan of the GIANT phablets.
    Very decent specs- A 720p screen, and a 10mp shooter are fine IMO.
    Moto's history with strong radios will be a welcomed edition after the last few years of nonsense with garbage radios and crappy call quality.

    All in all I see no real cons...Actually pretty excited about the X

    I am leaning to the Droid Maxx..

    BUT if the Moto X has:

    HDMI/MHL port
    32GB internal
    decent battery life with the 2200, I would consider it.

    I like the 3500 Battery for the MAXX and still cannot determine if it has a MHL connector or if HDMI is only wireless.. Worst case, I stay on my current DROID RAZR MAXX

    Moto X for me over the Droids, simply because of the bloatware. I would LOVE to have 32GB, but can live on 16. The X has equivalent or better software, it's far cheaper off contract (I hope), and it comes out sooner.

    Since the Nexus 5 and G2 likely aren't coming to Verizon, looks like the Moto X is it.

    I am sure that the Moto X does NOT have an HDMI out. That said with Googles latest invention, no phone will need an HDMI out. I am fairly certain none of the new droids have HDMI out either, it's now officially a thing of the past.

    It's already been seen using Verizon's network. So if it comes out for $299 unsubsidized and I can get $250-$300 for my Galaxy S3 I'll jump all over it. (I have unlimited data and use it. so I cannot update my phone anymore using subsidized pricing)

    Hopefully I can get that for my Galaxy though.

    That's actually not true. The Chromecast (while cool) does not meet the needs of a micro hdmi port. Chromecast will only stream media from the web. It will NOT stream local files. Google Music should work since it uploads to a cloud library, but if I have a movie in a local folder Chromecast would not be able to push it to the TV.

    I'm hoping the Moto X has a micro HDMI. Won't be a deal breaker for me, because anything I have locally I can put on my computer and or my tablet which has HDMI out...

    EDIT: I stand corrected http://www.droid-life.com/2013/07/25/tip-you-can-play-local-video-files-through-chromecast/

    Unfortunately, unless they are different than the test models. They won't have micro HDMI. I have seen all 4 edges and you have headphone jack on top center charging port/micro USB bottom center buttons upper right side and micro sim lower left.
