From a technical viewpoint.

IMO, if you don't do much with your phone, Moto X is pretty boss. I bought my brother a Moto X for Christmas, while I have the One. I mainly use my phone for food photos. The Moto X's macro is on point. I find myself playing games less and less, so the dual core doesn't sound too bad. It's snappy as is.

PS, depending on which carrier Moto X you get, you'll have less roms to mess around with. My brother has the T-Mo version, and there's close to no dev for it.

Was actually comparing the two today, apart from CPU cores everything else seems to be similar except that Moto X has basically half the price

What would be a reasonable cash amount for him to add to the trade? We kind of already agreed on $50. Should I ask for $100

I can't really judge the exact amount as it depends on both phones conditions, whether or not they are debranded, CDMA/GSM, etc but i would say 50$ would be the minimum...100$ seems more reasonable considering the difference in price of their brand new versions.

That's the thing, since the One is so old compared to the Moto X, you can find em for about the same price used. Around $350ish. Though I suppose since that sale, you can probably find more Moto X's out there. $50 is safe.

That's true, but his phone (Moto X) is also a used one.

I agree with the other guy who said to flash on aosp ROM. I love my One and before I had a nexus 4 and even with the plethora of Roms available, it got boring. Aosp has its limits. And you can't go wrong on design, I mean just look at the phone in your hand with the amazing build quality and speakers. I used to trade phone a lot but now that I got the "ONE" Im keeping it for a while.
