Not much objectivity there.
I don't like it because its cheaper looking than the One, has a much worse screen than either the One or S4, is shaped like a cone, and costs just as much money as two much better phones. I mean, the customization options are kinda cool and it definitely performs well despite its dual core processor but its just not on the level of the other two phones IMO while still costing as much as. Its also disappointing that the phone made by a Google owned company is still so beholding to the carriers...
I was with you up until the "cone" comment.. I think you're stretching it there lol.
But in seriousness, I get what you're saying. The One is made of aluminum and so it has a "premium" look to it, compared to the poly carbonate Moto X and even the Galaxy S4. I agree in that respect.
The screen is another matter... I mean, sure it's not a 1080P, but the difference is negligible, if any. Think about how cool it would be to have a phone that actually lasts a true full day. totally worth having the 720P screen. ^_^
Regarding the CPU being a dual core, have you read this article? link
Here's a clip:
We have covered Motorola's X8 processor before (twice actually), but it is worth running through it again, because some people have chosen to ignore what the chip is and what it can do, and focus on the misleading label that it has just a "dual-core CPU". Yes, the CPU of the X8 is basically what you might find in the Nexus 4, but that alone tells just a fraction of the story. As Apple has been trying to hammer home for the last couple years: the CPU of a mobile device is nowhere near as important as the GPU. And, in the GPU department, the X8 has the quad-core Adreno 320, which you would find on a Snapdragon 600 (which is the same chip that you'd find in the U.S. variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4, and the HTC One). Sure, the Snapdragon 800 has begun shipping in a few devices around the world, but it has nowhere near the widespread release needed to consider the 600 a "mid-range" SoC just yet.
So, basically, while I do understand your sentiments about it lacking the premium look and feel of a HTC One, it's definitely not lacking anywhere else. In fact, it gets extra points for owning in the battery department. I think, for most people, hearing "24 hour battery" will be a big selling point.
It's the reason I'm buying this phone.
