...and they're not listed anywhere in the article either. Eh?
Those 2 are too a great option, considering price.

I think Mr. Zeman forgot to add the Moto's and the Nexus 5. They definitely belong there.
The Moto X is recommended in a couple of categories.

The Moto G is an interesting phone, although a few things took it out of the running:

1. It wasn't on sale when we were writing this, and the Verizon model now isn't expected until Janu...
