    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.
