    After spending a week or two with the Galaxy S4, I don't think it's the right Android phone for me. With Motorola running a promotion on the Moto X (for Mom's day), I decided to head over to Moto Maker and customize a Moto X. My decision was partly based on the size of the GS4, which I felt was too big and the over-reaching of Touch Wiz which dominates the UI, despite using Nova Launcher. I had a Moto G review unit lying around and gave that a spin yesterday. I realized just how much I appreciate stock Android.

    So the combination of stock android, size and customization options, the Moto X seemed like a good fit. I'm a bit disappointed by the camera, but I'll have to deal with it. I opted for the 32GB model, GSM unlocked. I would have went developer, but you cannot customize those.

    A big factor was my love affair for the wood backing. I seriously excited to see my creation. I went with bamboo, white and silver accents. I toyed with the idea of lime green, but played it safe.

    I asked for a few opinions and most came back for the Moto X. Funny, I went back today and read my Moto X review from September, 2013. That guy made plenty of sense.:D

    Just checked this morning and no change in status. As of now, it's slated for Friday delivery. I'm excited, not only for the phone, but for that awesome wood back. That's one thing you cannot get with any other device.

    My Moto X came with a bamboo back that had an imperfection. I called and they provided great service. The new one is on the way and should be here by Tuesday. This one is sitting on my desk, taunting me. I don't want to use for fear that something will happen to it (like me dropping it).

    It does look awesome. I could have changed colors/accents if I would have liked, but went with the same color combo.

    For my trouble, Motorola is sending a free set of headphones, a nice gesture.

    Moto X has great hardware design with a new approach of android customization. It lacks some of the advanced functionality, but it is due to sake of simplicity, according to a spokesperson from Motorola. Overall its a great mobile with great features.
