Without turning into a flame/fanboy war I would like to maybe have some input? A little history but I'll keep it simple, I've primarily been a iPhone user dating back to the iPhone 3GS when I first got a smartphone. I've had every iPhone made since the 3GS, I've tried several Androids in between but I always returned them going back to iOS mostly for its polish and fluidity of the OS. Although I'm getting more open to wanting to make a permanent jump to Android, I've been using the Moto X 2nd gen as my daily driver for a couple months now, and I absolutely love it, although curiosity finally sparked and I had a chance to try a iPhone 6 (not 6 Plus, I'm not into phablets). And now I'm honestly torn, between these two devices I don't think a decision has ever been more tough as far as smartphones go. Lollipop finally feels like it has the fit, finish, and polish of iOS, I love material design and the new UI, coupled with the Moto X's moto display and software its a dream to use for everyday tasks. Google syncs with all my stuff pretty seamlessly here, I use gmail, keep, maps, chrome is my primary browser on both my desktop and laptop. I've always had a amiable disposition towards iOS because I've used iOS since its inception with the first generation iPod Touch, then transitioning to my 3GS, it feels at home for me. I've developed muscle memory for all the gestures and navigating through the UI. The things I love about the Moto X is the stock experience with Motorola's amazing software baked into that almost feels like apart of stock android, I love the fact that the devices are about the same exact size (the moto x just being a little wider), yet being able to fit a whole half inch of screen on the display. The AMOLED display is really nice, colors really pop, although not as realistic or accurate as the iPhone 6, video playback and pictures of people look better. When I compare them side by side, the iPhone has a much cooler display but the accuracy is a lot better and reading text is a little more pleasant on the iPhone 6, its not enough of a deal breaker, I still think the X has a amazing display in its own right, it doesn't detract from anything. I love the Moto display and breathing notifications, this has been such a welcome part of me, I love picking up the phone to see if I have anything on the screen and never requires a unlock unless I do. It's simple and so effective. The call quality, sound quality is also better due to the speaker being front firing on the Moto X. Although the iPhone 6 holds its own very well, the Moto X definitely wins here for me. My absolute favorite part of the Moto X is the design, it is a absolute ergonomic dream to hold, the curved back fits perfectly in the palm of my hand, even despite being wider its still easier to hold for me. The iPhone 6 is compact enough for me, but it still feels like I'm holding a bar of soap sometimes. Navigation on the Moto X seems to be a little easier to me too. I don't really like reachability, it feels gimmicky and tacked on. I hate how the back buttons on iOS are in the top corner where I have to reach across with my thumb or finger to reach or it, or just bring up my other hand and tap it. The Moto X I just simply hit the back button like nothing, its almost like iOS on the iPhone is still built for the previous 4-inch screen of the past iPhone and the OS hasn't expanded to take advantage of the bigger display. The iPhone was once revered for its fluidity and smoothness for me, I feel like iOS is finally starting to get a crack in the shell. I don't know if iOS 8 is just naturally buggy or the 1GB of RAM in the iPhone is finally starting to show its ugly self, but I'm beginning to get some pauses, some stutters, some freezes and little nuances across the OS that I'm picking up on now, mostly in the music app and sometimes in safari. The Moto X just flies through everything for me, it is buttery smooth, scrolling in chrome pages is ultra smooth and fast, the iPhone 6 scrolls slowly through safari pages. I wish there was a way to change the sensitivity. The camera is really no compare, I find that the iPhone 6 absolutely smashes the Moto X's camera in all aspects of quality, I welcome this a lot too. Although I find the Moto X's camera easy to use and easy to access, I get very frustrated with its shots, it really is a hit or miss, and most of the time is misses hard. I still like the iPhone though. Something about it still draws it to me, the keyboard accuracy for me is absolutely unparalleled and I can blaze through the iOS keyboard and type on it so fast. This is my single biggest frustration with my Moto X, the keyboard accuracy for me is just not nearly as good as the iPhone, it's not even close. I stumble on keys and make so many typos when I try to type as fast as I do on the iPhone, my only saving grace is when I'm able to swype, although I can't always do it because I'll have finger oil and won't be able to slide my fingers across the screen at all times throughout the day. I also love the Touch ID, I love that the iPhone is so secured yet so easy to unlock. I've quickly loathed typing in lock codes now enough that I forgo them on the Moto X and just don't use a lock code, I'm a pretty sedentary person. I just mostly go to work and come home, and surrounding places, I'm not really too worried about having my phone stolen or lost, as it pretty much goes with me everywhere I go when I'm out in public. I realize freak accidents can happen, but its a nice thing to have. Battery life seems the same across both devices, I would probably give a small nod to the iPhone for its superior standby time. I don't really play any games on my smartphone so I can't comment on performance, the applications I use on both phones are available and work just fine on both. I really mostly just use my phone for calls, text, email, web, and some maps and notes. Mostly just basic stuff, they're both sufficient on each platform for me, although I do think iPhones messaging app is a lot more polished then Android. I've been starting to like the new Messenger app from Google and I use that one as my primary text app, I just wish there was a way to change the colors for my contacts or at least understand how its color coded, thats left me a little confused. So yeah, I'm torn. I'm sorry for writing a novel here, but I have both devices and I'll eventually need to make a decision, maybe some input from any of you can be welcomed to bounce some ideas off of.
