Moto X 2014 (was "Motorola IHDT56QA1")

n5 would work only if the roaming carrier was using sprints existing bands (ie 800/1900/2600).

 

 

Or one of the other N5 compliant LTE bands, like B4, B5 and B17.  A Sprint SIM card would just need to receive an update to scan those bands too.  Currently the N5 does not scan those other bands with a Sprint SIM card in it.

This phone is looking better and better. Sounds like it will be as close to Nexus as you can get.

If there is no Nexus this year or the Nexus specs or RF figures are inferior to this (especially battery), I could see this as my next smartphone. Looking good.

Totally agree. Or if they go 5.9" on the Nexus like some have speculated. I have a N3 now, but am ready to downsize back to a 5.2 or so.

4.9" - 5.3" screen size is my preferred range in a smartphone. Maybe 5.5" with nearly zero bezel. Note 2 was slightly too big for my taste.

I'd like something between the HTC Evo 4G LTE at 4.7in. and the One M8 at 5in.

I've really enjoyed my EVO LTE. It doesn't seem like they will continue the EVO line...

 

I still wonder how a case will affect the reception on the Mofo X

Moto + case = 3x the EVO LTE reception without case :P

I love the kickstand! Makes it so much easier to play Candy Crush sitting at a table

I concur. Even if I still pick up an HTC One M8, the 2014 Moto X or Nexus 5 successor will join my arsenal. I cannot find much not to like about the Moto X -- except the AMOLED screen, especially as it is PenTile. But I understand the rationale behind using AMOLED for partial screen active notifications.

This. I need something below 5.2 in. so any sort of "Nexus 6" is out. But the AMOLED worries me. My brother's 6-month-old S4T already has some mild burn in. The M8 is cool, but a bit too expensive for me.

I've never had AMOLED burn in problems. And the way I keep SignalCheck live on my screens all the time for the past few years, I think I'd be a good candidate for burn in. I don't doubt some experience this. But I don't think it's common like it used to be.

No.

I apologize if I missed it earlier in the thread but is that a chipset limitation?

I have a photon 4g and a photon q and have not seen any burn in on either of them.

Snapdragon 801 has an integrated Category 4 baseband.

The 2300 mAh battery is concerning, as others mentioned. If the Android L isn't as efficient as touted, that's a problem for me.

Engadget reviewed the phone and said they were able to make it through the day with a lot of usage on it. I don't see it being an issue.

Yeah I'm going to wait for some real world reports, and usage from folks here, and also waiting to see what a possible Nexus X holds. Hopefully you're right.

Real world will be longer than Engadget says because they put it through a full stress test. Plus that's even good results before android L comes out.

The reviewer said he used it for a week or so IIRC. Not just a stress test and done.

And he said it lasted him at least a full day of use. What more can you ask for?

That's the point I'm getting at. It will be more than enough. Even on the original x I had no issues making it all day.
