I really don't like Apple, but Iphone 5 is much better than this over hyped MOTO.

The iPhone IS better than the Moto X to some users. I'm in the middle ground.

true, as every device may be better to some users over others

but his ''much better'' comment is based on nothing in the context he used it

Moto's key feature for the general public though is customization they need to shove that down the public's throat to get there name back

I will say I was highly disappointed in the $200 on-contract price with no off-contract option. I don't think many people will go for it considering other offerings. I think they should've offered a $299 off-contract price in addition to the on-contract price. I think the device is still better than the iPhone 5, but it has lost some of it's appeal to consumers by having no cheap off-contract pricing. I also know there are many people out there that hate carrier exclusives as well. Here's to looking forward to other manufacturers in the hopes that I am not going to be disappointed with them either.

Don't care about screen size on a phone...got the new nexus 7 and its awesome.

Also, nobody makes you buy it.. if its too much for your budget then move on...its simple

No, no it's not! People NEED to complain about this stuff! Otherwise, how will anyone know their opinions on matters that don't apply to them whatsoever?!?

Why does this reviewer constantly talk about the premium build of the iPhone's aluminum, then shoes pictures of it covered in skins? If it's so premium, why the need to cover it?

Ip5 is last years phone with last years tech, The Moto X is this years phone with last years tech. I expected more from Moto, and I'm quite frankly disappointed.

Haven't you realized yet, that no one takes you serious, looks at you as a techie, or cares for your opinion? We know your really, really, really hate apple. Ok believe me, we get it. Now go get ready for bed, mommy just made you a nice warm glass of milk.

Moto with Android is better than an iPhone with iOS.
