Going to get a new phone today and I was wondering which of the 2 is better? What do you guys think? I will be getting one or the other.

From what I've read and heard, they're both really similar as far as os goes. I just got an email from moto stating from now through the 14th, moto is offering $70 off the price of a moto x. Even for the dev edition, making the price $379 plus tax when ordered through their website (for the verizon dev x) The Maxx has a much bigger battery, but no discount for it. Dev maxx is $649 plus tax. You didn't state if you're buying off contact or not, but hope this info helps

It's really a personal preference, so I would say if you can, go hold them.  Feel is probably one of the most important aspects.  As Stewie metnioned, the OS is close enough.  I don't have a Maxx, but from what I understand the battery life is awesome.  On my X, with moderate use, in a 16 hour day, I end up with around 50% left.  (I charge every night ).  If you are buying off contract, I would have a hard time justifying the price diff.

Would It be possible to get active display and touchless control while on a different rom? I was considering the same thing as sluicebox but dev editions. If I were to switch to CM for instance, would touchless control and active still be possible from moto?

Finally one last question. I know Lenovo bought out moto, so does anyone expect a phone from them in the next 6 months?

Moto has phones planned for roll out well into 2015. Don't look for Lenovo branding for quite a while. Sent From My DEV X

Nope. Those functions will on a stock Moto rom

I have the Maxx and love the battery.  Almost 2 days of usage without having to charge.   If I could do it again, I'd buy a DE version.   KitKat pretty much hosed up root on the Maxx, not sure about the X.  I'm glad I bought mine before 4.4.2 came out so I could keep root through the process.
