Agreed. I gave my X to my wife tho. She had an S2, hated it and went back to her iPhone 4s. Android left a bad taste in her mouth and she swore next phone would be an iPhone again. Until she played with my X. LOL. Now its hers and she couldn't be happier.
Me, I missed all the options and care free flashing ...things that aren't the Moto x's strength. So I got the N5. My biggest fear tho was battery life. Heard a lot of mixed reviews of N5 battery. But I'm nearly matching my Moto x life. 24 hours or so with 5 1/2 to 6 1/2 screen time. So I'm happy!
The question....Moto x or N5....I answer the same still as when I only had the x. You want to flash anything and everything ....going forward or back in android versions with ease....get the N5. But if flashing stuff isn't a concern and you want an amazing phone, best I've used overall....get the Moto x.
Most things are near equal on both devices....even battery, for me anyway. But the Moto x is rock solid, refined and has unique Moto x features. The N5 is powerful and great all around, but the only reason I'd say get it over the X is if you want a booming development section.
