So why you can't root it. Just unlock the bootloader and root it.

I thought the first sticky said any phone with 4.4.3 or higher cannot be unlocked.

I downloaded the Clean Master app and clear out the junk and stop apps from running a couple times a day but doesn't seem to help. Not sure if rooting would help but I've briefly read that if it's on 4.4.4 you can't. Oh well I still have my S3 so I may switch back and forth to see which I like better. Overall I like the size of the Moto X better as well as the speed!

If you're writing a lot emails you could try out K9 and change the theme to "dark". It switches from black text on white background to white text on black background. That way you save a lot energy on AMOLED-screens. It's also quite well done in K9. Most inverted or "blacked out"-apps tend to look rather goofy. For SMS I use "Textra", that has a pretty nice dark theme too.

Thanks I will definitely try the email app.

And I'm not an expert in rooting. Only did the last few phones I had. I always make sure they're proven to work before I try them haha.

You read it totally wrong. Any phone on 4.4.3 or higher can not be rooted WITH AN EXPLOIT.

Any phone *except* Verizon (non-dev edition), AT&T, and Republic Wireless, can have the BL unlocked FREE, from Moto's unlock site.

Good Luck.

I came from an S3 and i found the MotoX to be much faster in responsiveness. Touchwiz is such a bulky laggy skin, although with that said, I do miss a couple of things about it:
1. The notification toggles
2. The photo gallery (create folders and drag-drop move feature so handy)
3. The ICS calendar integration

On 4.4 the battery was great on the X, but i found later iterations of the OS made the battery worse

Radio signal is much better on the MotoX device I can get LTE signal in my house which I never got with the S3
