I am mixed up but I think I will be OK. On the one hand I like stock Android since I have a Verizon Gnex and also a Nexus 7. On the other I like the idea of this contextual recognition something like Google Now which I am a big fan off. Samsungs split screen sounds good, but so much on their UI looks like a mess and there is lag which is a result of their programming in the UI, so not a fan off having too much overhead going on in addition to the OS.
My last phone was a MOTO and it was a solid device. Still have it, and it sometimes falls off of the shelf onto the floor but always survives. I don't want another 100% plastic phone. I don't care if it has round corners(I'll take it if thats it) because I prefer the squared off look something like that Italian designer phone made of steel that sells for thousands of dollars, at least in its advertisement.
Moto has very good radios and GPS which is something I need living in a down town area.
Never ever liked Moto Blur and I never liked their version of Pentile screens because I could see the pixels as soon as I looked at it so these are out for me.
That said I really want to see what they are going to deliver.
I would be happy if: The interface is as close to Google Stock as possible, It has good radios and works with Verizon and AT&T( I have a household member that is on AT&T and we have excellent coverage with them where I live so there are possibilities to switch even though I have unlimited data)
I would be happy if they delivered a phone that would work Verizon and Sprint versions of CDMA, Verizon LTE, AT&T LTE, Europe LTE and GSM all in the same phone,configurable in the settings menu. Probably too much to ask for but at some point everything is going to be LTE even voice over LTE.
I would be happy if it is using that Qualcom S800 or whatever that thing is that is their newest and fastest chip.
I want an excellent GPU - Wait is that built into the S800?
I would prefer quick updates, but I don't have this with Verizon and most likely never will unless Google can update the phone without involving the carriers every time.
Sorry for rambling, but like I said I am mixed up. Anxiously awaiting to see what Moto/Google is going to offer.
