I have a coworker that just got the moto x and until you actually have a chance to use it, I don't think you can grasp how good of a phone it is. The phone is easily the smoothest phone I've used (even smoother than my nexus 4) and feels tiny even though it's the same screen size as my nexus. The camera seemed fine from my testing, I think the trick is to explicitly turn on and off HDR to get more consistent photos.
The title doesn't really fit. This is a route that malware could use to infect a device and not actual malware. Plus this hole can be used for good things as well. Such as the "blacked out" apps that people make.
It's unfortunate that this is pretty much the end of Falcon Pro...but I will definitely be buying any future apps he puts out. He is a top notch developer.
I've definitely noticed the slowdown, but things have improved lately after I flashed a custom kernel and overclocked. Also, I started using Greenify to kill any unneeded services and free up ram for programs I actually use. Will definitely have to try one of those sd cleaning apps.
The same thing happens with computers, you buy one with an OS already installed and your free space is significantly less than the hard drive size. I guess it's not a big deal though when you have 500+ GB, but is much more of an issue when you only start with 16GB.
I really hope nobody buys this.
I'm waiting til after the holidays...hopefully they'll have a steady stock here in a month or so.
Great roundup. I can't wait to get my hands on this phone!!!!

For nexus devices, roms are generally ready the day of or shortly after a new version is dropped. So I'll probably save myself a couple hundred bucks and buy a carrier version. Also, if Google wants the Nexus devices to be in the hands of more people they're going to need carrier subsidized versions.
You guys rule.
I don't really like the launcher...but the lockscreen is sharp (pun intended)
Now that read-it-later/pocket is free who would pay for instapaper?
Better than ES? Not possible. Solid Explorer may look more attractive, but ES wins on features and usability.
Count me in.
