Phone Comparison Questions
Some background: I currently have Sprint, own a Nexus S 4G (yes, its def showing its age...), loving stock android 4.2.2 (rooted and have rasbeanjelly installed). I hate custom UI's (Touchwiz and Sense, for example), so any phone that's not stock android will be rooted so that I do get stock look. I also will want to be able to root and put on TWRP or CWM and the possibility of a different ROM, so being able to do that is a must... So I will be switching to Verizon in the next few months coming up and now that it seems that all the big boys are out for the year, the biggest question comes out... Which phone?
Ive been reading alot of reviews and articles and such stuff on phonearena.com and have found that the best phones for Verizon right now are the following:
So that's alot of phones, right? So I decided to come up with a chart with specs and read some more reviews and comparisons to help limit it down a bit and here's what I limited it down to:
*Note: I have smaller hands, so the G2 didn't appeal to me, regardless of its great reviews. the S4 is cutting it close, but seems the Moto X is most comfortable overall.
Now the comparisons I found on these two are that obviously the S4 is beefier in the hardware dept as far as speed and the screen, but... Touchwiz... Enough said. Because of that, I read that the Moto X runs smoother and quicker. Problem is, I won't be keeping Touchwiz and I am trying to find a comparison between the two phones with the S4 not running Touchwiz on it. Like the Google Edition, for example, but I can't seem to find what I'm looking for.
Anyone have any thoughts, point me somewhere or best of all, hands on experience? As of right now, Im leaning towards the Moto X...
Thanks in advance.
