Not sure which is more fair here. I guess probably whichever one you are leaning to agree with more lol
Hard to really see much deviation in those 3 reviews when they didn't all do the same exact things in their tests.
We'll see down the line which reviews are accurate, and which are not. I mean, Engadget also praised the phone for having great battery life.
As I write this, my Moto X is still carrying a 28 percent charge after one day, two hours, 12 minutes and three seconds. And I'm a heavy user. To give you a better idea of how I arrived at this number, allow me to explain my personal usage habits. Spotify is nearly always running on my phone when I'm in transit, which, here in New York City, means almost any time I'm not sitting. When I'm idling, I usually launch Pocket to catch up on news, voraciously refresh and scan Twitter (set to sync every 15 minutes), have constant emails pouring in and out that I read and respond to, Hangouts that I periodically indulge in, Maps for rushing off to various meetings around town and Chrome for the 20-plus links I have open at any given time.
See what I mean? I'm not saying Droid-life is wrong, but there's definitely some confusion here.

Well, that's kind of a drastic comparison, don't you think? Battery life isn't the only thing that matters to me, but it's definitely one of the more important aspects when picking a smartphone.
1080P screen is not worth it if the phone sucks the battery so fast I have to charge in within 8 hours from "regular use". A quad core doesn't mean a thing to me if the MotoX can hold it's own and run buttery smooth with a dual core.
UNLESS, Droid-Life is right, and the MotoX battery is "meh"... then that's an entirely different story. I'd get the Samsung Galaxy S4... and do what I've always done. Keep a charger near by, and carry an extra battery in my car.
