I got a Moto X pretty late in the game. A few new models are already out in the market place. But I like it a lot. I have the 32 gig example, have updated it from KitKat 4.4.4 to the latest Android version 6 Marshmallow, even skipped the LoliPop versions completely, rooted it and crashed it a few times to the point where I needed and got the original Motorola bootloader software to bring it back from oblivion.
I have no issues with any apps, although I can disagree with the reference below to something like 574 hours of standby time, which must be "moon time" where gravity doesn't drain the batteries. It is pretty hard on power, but it isn't an issue for me because I have a charger in my BMW which plugs right into my USB port.
I also use TeamViewer, currently v.11, which enables me to not only access my entire home network for where ever I might be, but also load the Mot X onto the desktop or laptop or tablet when I am at home, making the phone much easier to use in terms of screen resolution as well as access to updates and installation of apps via the laptop instead of Google's Play Store. I just go out looking for what I need on my laptop, and using the USB access, install to the phone right from the laptop.
I would recommend this phone to anybody. Now a days it's pretty inexpensive, there are lots of apps available for it, and it is pretty damn reliable too.
Fact is, I'm about to get another one for around ten bucks specifically for crash practice. For ten bucks, if it bursts into flames, I'd just throw it in the sink, run water on it and toss it in the garbage.

hey guys I have this phone for over 2 years and recently I installed Xposed Framework but the variant was not the right one for my phone's architecture and now my phone has bootloop, I'm currently using CyanogenMode and I have tried to many solutions such as installing factory ROM but with every single that I have tried I will not go further than bootloop... Any suggestion

My moto x camerra ( primary ) is fluctuates in Indore white light or in tubelights..is it normal???😞
BM, 03 Jul 2016Yes bro this is best choice i think.....but it have no expendable memory...If your still looking to get the moto x 2013. Make sure its brand new or close to it w/32gb. Also do not upgrade to android lollipop 5.1., lots of horror stories.
Stick with KitKat
Vishnu, 03 Jul 2016Hey guys my screen glass cracked, how much it costs to replacement.?Just make sure it is the screen and not the protective screen cover. I loved my Moto X and thought I cracked my screen. Was happy to find out it was the screen protector. An ATT dealer at the kiosk said it couldn't be fixed. Took it to an ATT store and they took of the shield it's perfect once again..
maverick, 28 Jun 2016Hey guyz is moto x 2013 a good choice in 2016 ??, sorry for bad english ...Yes, 2 gigs of Ram will still allow for playing games and doing most current "smart phone stuff"
Its a cheap alternative that still works!!!
[deleted post]No, I think you should go for more developed androids now
