Re: Who else sold their current phone early? What are you using to tide you over?
Totally understandable. I do have a question though. As far as it running, does the fact it was made by google/moto pay off as far as performance? While I do not want another android phone, I do believe android has its positives and isn't a horrible system but is plaqued by bad hardware, bad optimizations or both. It's my understanding the moto x is optimized by google and its my hope that this finally brings android to a more reliable experience as far as performance and battery life, similar to the iPhone. Has this happened? Or is one of your issues with performance. I was impressed by the moto x mostly because it could be androids "iPhone" ,at least on the reliability front. I have friends and family who are just die hard android users but keep having bad experiences with android but don't want to leave. They all are interested in the moto x so I am hoping they can have the same kind of reliable performance I expect from my iPhone. I choose iPhone because of its reliability yes, but I love the app quality, and ios7 so I no longer have interest in android myself, however people shouldn't have to choose one platform over the other based completely on just reliability! Personally I think my family and brothers are stubborn because they would actually love ios, (they don't customize anything on android, they don't root, they don't download apps outside of the market, they don't. Do anything they couldn't do on ios) but they refuse to try something new. It is their choice, but I know that they are not alone. Many people try something once and then don't want change later, even if it is better for them. It's for these people that there needs to be a reliable option. That is what I hoped for in the moto x.
