Ordered a Moto X last Tuesday from Moto Maker. Hit my front stoop last Tuesday. Great to be back in the Motorola fold again. The Galaxy Nexus was a bit long in the tooth even after a root to Jelly Bean 4.3. Happy with the new acquisition. Slightly larger screen (4.7" vs 4.65") in a smaller form factor. Snappy and smooth with a beautiful non-pentile AMOLED screen. Had to buy it at full price so I could keep my unlimited data. Totally worth it since I do a lot of music and video streaming. I also tend to tether my Nexus 7 when there isn't wifi available.

I have one two... Wait, I mean I have an HTC "one" as well.

Get a case for it... They are SLIPPERY! I got a cool realtree case of ebay and I really like it. 

It is WAY different than a blackberry. I still call people by accident because of the giant touch screen. But, I like the phone, battery life is good, and it is like carrying my tablet with me (just a little smaller)...

the htc one is ridiculously slippery.  My wife has it and i've almost dropped it a few times.  I have the one x plus and it's got a textured rubber back to it that I don't even need a case for it.  Her and I are a year apart in terms of upgrades so we always leap frog between who has the newest phone.

I'm still enjoying my galaxy s4. I rooted it shortly after I got it to get rid of the bloat ware and to be able to tweak it, has worked great for me.

If you'd quit insisting on those melted-butter back massages from her, this wouldn't be the case......

We've tried I can't believe it's not butter... it just isn't the same.

A few of my favorites, Greg Hastings "fields of battle" is a great game for killing time, just move the grenade button further up (in the in game control HUD settings). 

I like I heart radio, instagram, directtv, pandora and candy crush... Yeah, I play it... So what, it beats staring at the bumper in front of you at traffic lights!

Also a fun little "driving" game is hill climb racing. 

If you have multiple facebook pages you manage, "page's manager" is pretty decent app as it allows you to do updates and posts from one of your "pages" without using your normal facebook...


Oh and you need to set up a "google play store" account, if you haven't already to download all your apps.
