While it's a drastic improvement in the specs department from last year, many of the components of the device are still almost 2 years out of date. The 1080p AMOLED display is from the S4-era (not as bright, accurate, efficient, and more prone to burn-in than the S5), the camera module is old and will not have the level of detail and color reproduction as smartphones today. That's also from 2013. The Snapdragon 800 variant is about to be 2 generations behind in power and efficiency, the battery life from day to day usage isn't that stellar either. End of the year release cycles is just bad for a phone with this kind of technology.

Except that virtually every review disagrees with your assessment of the phone, except the camera and battery life. And even the battery life is rated as enough for your average user. Besides, the true value of the Moto X doesn't lie in its individual parts. It lies in how those parts fit together. Guaranteed that it'll run better in a year than a G3 will.

It's a SD801 and everyone's saying it's the same as what's in the M8, S5, and I believe the G3. Of course the panel isn't as good as the one on the S5. Correct me if I'm wrong but only Samsung will have access to those variants of panels that are on the S5, so anyone else who uses amoled other than Samsung will be in the same boat. And even if the Sony sensor is older (which I'm not entirely sure on), it's still a step up from the Omnivision units they have been using for years. Let's face it, if they would've put a 2500-3000mAh battery in this years X, for the cost and specs available, it'd be right behind only the Note4 and possibly the G3 as the phone to get right now. I'm waiting to see if this Droid Turbo is a Maxx successor, and if it is, and the screen isn't too big, that's what I'm going to go with. I really don't need to upgrade, but my 2013 Maxx will go to someone else on my share plan and I'll upgrade.

what color combination do you plan on getting? this is as agonizing a decision as it was last year but i think i have it narrowed down to two options, black back/red accents or black back/lemon lime accents. i'm not gonna go for the leather because a lot of reviews i've seen indicates that it may be too soft and not up to long term use.

My contract isn't up until next year and I can't buy it off contract because I have to buy a laptop for college. Maybe some other time, Moto. :(

You can bet that I'll be one of the first to jump on that.

what Sniggly said but if you really need it Moto is having that $50 college promo. i used my friend's college email to generate a code and you can also sell your Mini to bury some more of the cost but it's not going to get you a whole lot and it should stay supported for another year.

My Mini is still going strong, I'm definitely more than satisfied with it, it's just hard not to want the newest thing.

Out of contract, they better price this thing correctly.

IIRC, the 16GB model is $499 and the 32GB model is $50 more.
