    Hey! Kind of new to vaping, got a SMOK Alien 220W around December and have loved it, upgraded to a TFV12 Cloud Beast King and holy shit it's glorious. But my mod colour doesn't match the tank, and it glitches out with battery sometimes and I just kinda want a new mod.

    Can anyone give me an opinion on which one of these mods you think is better?

    The touchscreen of the G-Priv 2 looks nice but the X-Priv is also appealing.

    Depends on what you like about them. I think the G Priv 2 has a way better functionality than the original G-Priv and with the way it's been slimmed down it looks even better. The X Priv is sleak looking and simple but not sure how I feel about the buttons at the lower right of the mod.

    IMO I'd say G Priv 2 over X Priv, but they are both cool mods.

    Welcome to VU. I would go down to the local vape shop and get your hands on one or both of them. I personally really like the XPriv. Feels great in the hand, and the screen is the best Smok has put out to date. Can't go wrong with either one.

    I would definitely say the G Priv 2. Not only is it amazing but it feels more solid than the X Priv. I've never used the X Priv personally but I went down to a local vape shop and wanted to see how it feels in the hand and I prefer the feel of the G Priv 2. Somebody did come in the shop and had the X Priv and he says he loves it. I love Smok products and I would say they're both going to be amazing but it really comes down to what you're looking for in a mod. Honestly sometimes I have to play eeny meeny mini moe when I can't decide.

    lol well the touchscreen on the gpriv 2 looks sweet but it also seems it will easily get scratches like my Alien and that might mess up the look/touchscreen

    My husband actually kept the protective plastic on the screen and you can't even tell it's there. Without it it would definitely get lots of scratches if you just throw it in your bag or pocket or something. If you take really good care of it then it'll be fine.

    I narrowed down my choice between the G-Priv 2 and the X-Priv. After playing around with them in the vape shop I went with the X-Priv. There is little to choose between them. The style and feel of the X-Priv won me over in the end.

    I personally have the G-Priv 2 Lux Edition and love it. My co-worker has the X-Priv and it also is a nice mod. But as most that have recommended, it’s best to go to a local shop and get both in your hands and see which one works best for you. You can’t go wrong with either one. My only complaint with the G-Priv 2 is if you need a quick charge, the port is on the bottom, so you have to tilt the mod to charge. However both mods are very simple to operate, just have to decide what works best for you and which feels more comfortable in your hand.

    i have both the x-prix and the g-priv 2 lux ( they are the only ones i own )
    both have advantages and disadvantages

    the x priv you can adjust the ohms easily ( accidentally )
    and its difficult to cut a soft screen protector to fit ( the screen is curved )
    it takes a bit more to zero the puffs and reset the colours ( i use different screen colours for each battery set )
    it feels slightly better in hand ( to me ) and its not as wide ( more suitable for pocketing )
    both batteries go in the same way around so the same end will get scratched more
    you can buy cheap coloured silicon sleeves for it .. but they have a closed back so you have to remove it totally to replace batteries or cut the back out to make it easy

    the g-priv has a flat screen so easy to cut a soft screen protector to fit
    slightly more stable on a flat surface
    the screen off button van be annoying at times
    but in general it sets and locks them a lot better
    the batteries go in the opposite way around so wrap scratches even out a bit
    the g priv comes with a black silicon sleeve to protect it ... the back is cut out to make battery change easy
    replacement sleeves are expensive

    other bits n pieces
    both are great to use i have never had a problem with either
    if pushed to make a choice
    i probably couldn't so it would be whichever one im using at the time
    i use cheap xfkm coils from aliexpress ( $5 us for 3 Q4's delivered )

    i have heard little but bad about smok stuff .. but i have had no probs and i wonder if a lot is from new users who dont know or business competition
    as far as cost for mods go .. where i live they are about 50% more expensive than the states but a pack of 20 cigs is $25 ( $~16 us ) so the its pretty irrelevant when you compare it to x days smoking to recoup the cost
