"But apple gives you updates for the 3+ years you're paying off the phone."
Yeah, sure you get the updates, but those updates make your iPhone lag and you don't get all the features of the new iOS version.
"Microsoft do the same thing with their windows phone os."
HAHAHAHAHA, you are kidding right? There is no new major WP version beyond WP8 out and you're saying MS is the greatest for updating their phones.
Yeah right, tell that to WP7 buyers... :/
"That's why open source is sucks."
Again.... hahahahahaha... if you only knew what stupidity came out of this sentence your head would hurt. :D
Because an OS is open source we users with older Android phones get ALL the nasty new features in the newest version of Android (example: XDA & Custom ROMs).
But as you've said it there is no responsibility from OEMs to support their older phones.
Thank god for open source! :D

I don't believe all you people, you're getting excited over nothing. These phones aren't going to be released until 2nd half of this year and we don't know what to expect yet. As for Motorola, while they have always made reliable phones they are so dull and boring, I certainly aren't getting excited, at the moment I am going to choose the LG Optimus G Pro as my phone for 2013 BUT I am sure there will be some tegra 4 or Snapdragon 800 smartphones coming out this year so I am going to be waiting as long as possible before I make my purchase.

It's means Samsung And HTC and other brands are going to die soon because Google very obviously give priority to his own brand. Bye bye Samsung s4

after this google can kick samsung OUT from the bussiness.
Now they own MOTOROLA to manfacture their own hardware
with more reasonable price.

MOTO*Google = RAZR Nexus

I think customizable hardware is not true.. How that can be? This is fully nonsense and How manufacturing company can make a phone within a week?

Building your own PC with the best hardware available in the market.Sure like smartphone with liquid cooling,over clocking,hyper threading,ram up to 4 GB,128 GB internal memory and with a dedicated graphics card all shrunk for the size of smartphone? Really do people want more.

> In reply to Chamamen @ 2013-03-17 16:10 from n$0{ - click to readdude, i would like to tell you, that google don't own a manufacturing before... yet google is the only beast OS to date, even there are some dying out there that needs a developers support. Now, Google has MOTO. I can tell you the battle is just beginning. Do you remember what happen to the sales of LG Nexus 4? No phone can beat the % of interest. But Google can't do a mass production because the maker has its own top notch dog too to sell out there. This is business, and I think google isn't that crappy to give you crappy products. Let us see the final battle until these announced beast phone to be released. might as well get amazed :D LG mako kills the market :)

hahaha now the GOOGLE finally has its own manufacturer of its delectable designed phone - this will be the best beast out there. I dont think its really a costumed release, but it is made with a respective choices of delicacy. Well a user is much into 2gb ram, 32-64gb internal, qualcom quad core krait beast processor + 3 GPU of adreno 320 with all the goodies (NFC, OTG, Best camera sensor, quad band of LTE connectivity, an IPS super retina lcd, IP5 certified.. is that what Google refers to be a customizable techie phone? :D can they manufacture that? and oh, before i forget, it comes in sizes too, whooaa. 4", 4.55" and 5" display. OMG what a dream
let me hear you GOOGLE, where are you? :D hahaha

I think the fact that they gonna let you customize your hardware is very cool but i don't know about the whole one week delivery thing ,it's just not enough time .But who am i to say what google can or cannot do ?I mean if they say so they must have some kind of Manufacturing plan for it .

If they want, they can make not an X, but a YZ phone - it does not matter. This brand is ruined since Giggle bought it.
