I know the camera is sub par according to the thread in the general forum, if anyone compared with s3 how much better is the s3 or moto x?
Had the S3 i747. The Moto X is a snappier device.
Given, there are no custom ROM's out for the Moto X. The S3 gets very close to it if you run a custom AOSP ROM like AOKP/CM.
But dude, it's got a 4.7 inch screen in a shell slightly wider then an iphone 5. It's really a no brainer. Even stock it is damn well near perfect, as far as speed and battery is concerned. Hardware wise, it's a WICKED device. Check out my battery life here
At the same time, nobody knows yet how good ROM development will be on Moto X. Will we be able to keep the Moto X specific geature like active notifications, touchless controls when we run custom ROMs? Nobody knows yet
If I were you, I would wait to scope out what the Nexus 5 offers before you make the final decision. Should be pretty soon... leaks are out, LTE is FCC approved, can't be too long till it hits. I know it's LG or whatever, but development is TOOO good on Nexus devices. I had so much fun flashing my N4 =) oh and ROM's were actually stable it was dope
Moto X on Bell Mobility
Stock - Rooted, Debloated

Retired: S2 i9100, S3 I747, iphone 4s, iphone 5, Nexus 4
