Numbers of bars on both???
I've only had it for a bit over a day and am still setting things up in the AICP based ROM I installed. So not much user time yet.
Speed is not noticeably faster than any AOSP ROM's I ran on a T-Mobile Note 3.
Volume on the dual-speaker is WAAAY louder and deeper sounding than the Note 3's speaker.
I only have one SIM so I can't really compare the signal bars. But around town download speeds have so far been about the same.
WiFi is downloading twice as fast on the Moto X though.
The phone is easier to control with one hand. Not really sure why though, since both phones are identical in size. But I can now reach the status bar with my thumb without straining like I did on the Note 3.
Screen is just as bright in AOSP ROM's on the Moto X as it is in TouchWiz with auto-brightness enabled.
So when I'm outside under the sun, I can read text just as well. Though the Moto X looks better at an angle than the Note 3 does. Easier to read when angled than the Note 3 in the sun.
I'm very happy with the phone, mostly because of the louder speaker and ability to install any ROM or kernel I want.
Otherwise, the Note 3 is still one of the best damn phones out there.
