On the fence for this phone, just have a few last minute questions
Coming from an aging LG G2x which I flashed to ICS using EB's build. Came with problems outta the box which necessitated rooting/flashing to keep it usable. It's gotten really slow over the nearly 3 years since I first got it and it's now unable to run games like Iron Man 3. I just had a few questions I was hoping you guys answer:
1. I understand Kitkat updates have been rolling out. What're the chances Moto will continue updates for this phone going into 2015? Is it likely to get long-term support like the X may receive?
2. How's the HSPA+ 42mbps connectivity? I'm migrating from HSPA+ 21mbps and debating getting this phone or the Galaxy Light
which comes with LTE on top of HSPA+ 42mbps. Would really like high-speed tethering and finding that my speeds are kind of slow indoors.
3. How easy is it to root/flash this phone? Is there a locked bootloader, the unlocking of which would void my warranty?
As I understand it, there's already a fast growing dev community for this phone, which really pushes me in the direction of this phone since my G2x would've been dead in the water if not for working XDA roms!
