What phone do you plan on getting between the iphone 6/6+, moto x (2014), and the Note 4 (assuming you are)?

I currently have an LG G3, and plan on getting one of the above phones.

I am currently leaning strongly towards the 6+. It is the largest and most expensive of the bunch, and that is the largest negatives. But my problem with the note 4 is that I am not a big samsung fan. I don't like the persistent lag, or the slow updates.

The moto X looks great, but I worry about the camera and battery life.

I honestly like the simplicity, polish, and fluidity of the iOS ecosystem. That being said...android L should really bridge the gap.

Just looking for your thoughts, I appreciate your input.

I'm going for the Note 4. Never had any issues with TW and my S4 has been pretty good to me. I always envied the Note 2 and 3, so I be going with the 4 this time.

Note 4

Love my Note 3 and what it does so the note 4 will be even better. Can't wait for that new screen and S pen features.

I'm not real sure which device to go for. I've been eligible for an upgrade on Verizon since January and was waiting until the fall to see what's released. The new Moto X didn't do much for me. I have the OG moto x as well as the S4 that I swap between. As much praise as I hear for the note line, I think they are too big. I really like the 4.5-5 inch screens but nothing really caught my eye in that size range. I really wish Verizon would get the nexus series back but I don't see that happening.

I would get the iPhone 6 Plus if it had Android...

So many things I still can't do on iOS.

Don't know what phone to buy...

Note 4, I just cannot ignore the incredible and unique functionality it has over every single other phone out there.

It's between the Moto X and the iPhone (and possibly the new Nexus). I want my phone to last my 2 or more years.

Moto X (2014) needs to get moto maker up and running so I can see how I can customize it. My biggest problem is that I need the 64GB version from it, and who knows when that will come out.

Fat Man/Little Boy - 128GB option is tempting me. I need to fight my way to the iPhone section of an Apple Store to see how they feel in my hand. I also need to bring 3 of my smaller purses with me, just in case I like the 6+. The two issues for me are the price, and how much RAM is in the phone(don't know why Apple is keeping this a secret). I'm on a prepaid plan and having to pay almost $1K for a phone is a hard pill to swallow.

Note 4, no question.

The iPhone 6 looks like a great phone, but the Note always proves to be a winner. I was expecting a better camera bump on the iPhone 6/6Plus.

My major reasons:
1) Screen / QHD and Samsung has finally gotten the colors and white balance right on their AMOLED screens.
2) Camera / OIS, Phase Detection, 1/2.5 sensor (large), 16MP. Easily one of the best on the current market.
3) SPEN - Love it

If i had to pick one, id likely go for the moto X 2014, but need to see both it and the iPhone 6 in person.

For me, the iPhone 6. I question the structure integrity of such a large and thin phone, but its not only gorgeous, it has some killer features that I really like. On top of that its running iOS - a big plus for me at this stage of my mobile needs.

If I couldn't chose the IP6+ then I'd probably move on to the note.

Damn, just read about the Moto X battery life being so poor.

They've nailed the Moto G so well, and just sabotaged the X.

A shame.

Looks like I will pre-order the IP6 64GB tonight. But will give hard look at the Alpha too.....

Do some research on iOS 8.....I'd be willing to bet these "things" Android users say they can't do on iOS will be taken care of in iOS 8.

Extensions my friend. They'll change EVERYTHING in iOS.

I'm doing the 6 and 6+. Thought about the Moto X but since I've decided to go with both iPhones, I won't be able to get the X.....perhaps next year.
