After a week or so with the Moto X, I've been impressed by how quickly and smoothly most apps launch and run. I am ordering Christmas presents on Amazon, and the app on the Moto is instantly responsive. Makes ordering and tracking a breeze. Battery life is much, much better than my Z10, though I am running the .1055 leak, so it's not going to be good anyway.
However, I find myself playing on the Moto for a few minutes, chatting on BBM with one or two people with my second BBID (people who already on my other BBM list), and then putting it away. My BlackBerry, warts and all, just seems to work better for what I want. I can't see myself using the Moto for more than a day or two before getting frustrated. I hate that I have to launch an app to check my email, for example (Outlook.com), and I hate that Google products are so utterly and thoroughly baked into the Android platform. I knew that going in, of course, but they're almost impossible to get around sometimes.
