This article makes me laugh. Since when is the Nexus 4 considered mid-range.

No MicroSD was also where it lost me. I mean come on, I filled I understand they want you to have motivation to buy the 32gb model, but I have a large amount of music I'd like to carry around for offline listening, and if you take a few videos and high res photos, you fill up the rest of the space fast.

I wish they didn't call it "Moto X" - because I'm a fan of motocross and when ever I see Moto X I think of motorcycles, but then realize you're talking about a telephone.

Are they really this far into the Moto line of their product brand? And what happened to the Moto iX or is their product numbering department just playing with my mind? =)

It was kind of a bad name. But it makes sense.

Hah. I have an s4. I'm comparing my S4 to the Moto X. Has a better rear camera, has a more powerful CPU, and has better resolution...not THAT impressed. Sticking to my S4 for a long while. =P

Yeah. The Moto X was a disappointment. In order to have a great Android phone, you need good specs, a good manufacturer to back it up, an SD card slot, customizability, and no carrier exclusive deals. The Moto X misses on the big ones like the lack of a SD card slot and carrier exclusive deals.

I assume you were just comparing specs because I can see little to no reason why anybody would consider switching to a Moto X if they already have a S4 unless they consider the so called 'unique customizations' as a must have.
