Looking for a new phone for christmas (not iPhone)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello guys, the short version is that Im looking for a new phone for my birthday/christmas this year. 

 

I have been using iPhones since the first one but Im looking to try something different now. Im not sure about what other phone yet though, the only thing I know is that I dont want an HTC or a Samsung phone (I have some friends that have phones from them and they have had a bunch of problems). 

I have an Asus Nexus 7 tablet and after spending some time with it I have kind of burried my hatchet against andriod. Yet, I am more interested in a Win-phone but I think it has quite a bit of drawbacks and compatability issues at this time. Therefore I have been looking at the Moto X, and it looks like something worth taking a shot at, unless Im missing something. 

 

So, what would you guys be recommending?

It isn't a gimmick. It is by a huge margin the best still image camera on a phone.

Within the month is more reasonable for Google Play Edition phones. Nexus devices get updates within the week, if not within a couple of days (at least that is how it has been before Kit-Kat).
