I'm tempted by the unlocked BL and wireless charging. But I'm not sire how I will feel about loosing touch less and active notifications.

Anyone have both? And have advice?

I'm not losing touchless controls over anything no mo'.

Why would I give up setting alarm in the bed without getting up.

I've got both, and I haven't used my Moto X since I got the N5. Touchless Controls are nice, but with my job, I really can't use them much

Wireless Charging sucks. Its slow. I love how fast the Moto X charges. But seriously, the only bonus is that the Nexus is on 4.4.1 now instead of 4.4 to improve camera which is something Moto X has been dealing.

I've got both (and an iPhone 5s) and my vote is Moto X over Nexus 5, but mainly because I prefer it's form factor.

I got both and I usually use my X more than my nexus because of battery life. I don't root or anything just use as is.

Really curious on how your moto x gets better battery life. I've got a stock Moto x and it barely makes it through the day. My N5 battery easily lasts me into the wee hours

I had both, and I sold my Nexus 5 to keep the Moto X. For me, one I couldn't deal with not having active notifications and the flip to camera gesture because I'm a big car guy and snap pics on the road a lot. Also, Verizon is by far the best coverage here. Also I found the Nexus 5 to be too big and awkward in my hand, and its the same software, and I don't find any reason to go CM anymore. Also I find the Nexus screen to look a little faded/washed vs the Moto X. I agree with the other guy that I also get better battery life from my Moto X. For me, the Nexus 5 is only better if you want CM, and prefer the bigger screen.
