I've not had a chance to try the new Moto X but the Nexus 5 feels a bit light and I question long term durability.

My phone seems pretty durable and good quality overall, though I would have to agree with the lightness of the phone, kinda which they designed it with a little more mass, almost feels too light in the hand.

As for the topic, I think the moto x has a better camera, battery, and is customizable. The Nexus 5 performs better (generally), has a better screen, and will probably get updates first. Depends on what your most interested in.

In terms of battery life, the Moto X can last a longer day than the Nexus 5. Build wise, the Nexus is lighter however, I am not sure about the Moto X.
