LG G2 and Moto X

+Russ Clark asks,

I have a G2 and it is a great device, but this attention by Moto towards the Moto X makes me wonder if I should sell my G2 and switch. I know you used the G2 for a bit, what input would you have about that idea?

We're hearing this a lot. Not necessarily about the G2 or the Moto X, but anytime a phone makes the news because the manufacturer is doing something right, people get interested and start thinking about switching. While the people who make these phones probably love seeing and hearing about this, does it really make sense?

Consider why you bought your G2. Chances are you really liked what it had to offer just a handful of weeks ago when you bought it. Nothing has changed. It's still fast, still has the best camera on any Android phone, and still has a killer LCD to look at it all. The Nexus 5 having Google Now built into the launcher, or the Moto X getting KitKat before anyone else didn't change any of that.

Soon, the Moto X will stop being on the front page of any of the blogs. The phone you're holding — whether it be the G2, or something from Samsung or HTC or any of the other OEMs — will have it's turn there. You have to remember, that your phone not being plastered all over the blogs means it's working well and as intended for most users, the same way it did when it was brand-new. 

Keep that G2, Russ. Use it well and enjoy all that it can do for you. And when it gets KitKat or something else happens that should be front and center, be sure to let us know.
