Default ROM Support - Moto G or 4X HD

I'm going to buy a new phone soon and I just wanna ask if this phone is ready for android L. Does it have developer good support? I'm deciding between this or Moto G for the ROM support.

Honestly this is a good phone BUT the truth is since the moto g is a newer phone, it will be easier to support. I checked out their Dev forum and it seems pretty active

You're awesome ) thanks ) but if it were you, would you sacrifice hardware for software? Or sacrifice software for hard ware?
Sacrificing software means 0 to none ROM development but having a great top specs hardware

But sacrificing Hardware means you get a minimum 5mp cam, 8GB internal and a smaller screen but With a lot of ROM support.

Which one do you prefer?

Tough choice, I think I'd choose ROM support, although I would never go lower than a 4.7 inch screen. This phone has its fair share of problems for some people like network loss, GPS not locking, bad battery life, and overheating. For other people, its completely fine but its the risk you take when getting this phone. I would rather just buy a used nexus 4 with 16gb of storage (8 is wayyy to small for me) from swappa for around $200
