Motorola X Users Thread!

Recommended Posts

Back on the Moto X until these eCSFB upgrades are more widespread in West Washington. I forgot how much I actually enjoy using this device. I'm thinking I like it over the Nexus 5 even.

How do I know if I'm getting LTE service or just wi-max 4g. Here in Utah we're just starting to see LTE popping up in some areas. Just wondering if my screen will specifically say "LTE" or if it will always say 4g. Any help is appreciated

That device isn't WiMax capable so whenever you see 4G you're connected to LTE

Can't wait for Kit Kat on the Moto X.

Well looks like your wait is over. I just installed Kitkat on my Moto X

New interactive advert in new Wired magazine.

 

http://www.engadget.com/2013/12/19/moto-x-wired/

 

Seems like it might have been better placed in a more mainstream magazine , but who knows. Googlerola is spending some dough for the X though. Must be nice to have your own printing press.

Seems like you were one of the 1000 customers that got the update first after it started rolling out to all users

What's the word on a good case for this phone?

A coworker lent me her advocacy phone and I would like to get it protected. On top of adding some bulk to the smallish feeling phone.

I've got a Otterbox Defender on my Moto X and it has already saved the handset and screen.  Ended up scraping up the built in screen protector, so I contacted Otterbox and they sent me a new case.  They warranty all their cases, which is nice because they are not cheap.  I like the feel of the case on the phone because I also felt the phone was small in the hand.  The Defender adds some heft, but it still feels good in the hand.  

 

Good luck.

I tried the defender case at my store and I didn't like the corner nubs digging into my hands when I was holding it.

Doesn't really matter much since I switched back to my Nexus. I turned it on and compared screens next to the moto and it doesn't even compare.

Thanks for the input though. Appreciate someone at least answering.

Yes the Nexus is an awesome handset. When my area gets LTE I figure I will try out one of the Spark devices. Seeing as how I still on 3G I figure a single band LTE handset can't hurt.

 

Good luck.

I highly recommend the N5 if you have the moto x. It's the big brother to the moto just without touchless assist.

Also without Active Notifications, trusted bluetooth, Moto Assist, great battery life, and the amazing ergonomics.

All that bring said, I really enjoy my Nexus 5.

Eh. I can live with it. Being rooted running Franco kernel I have gotten 5 hours screen on time on a bigger phone that to me just fits better in my hand. The moto felt like a toy to me.

I honestly don't do the gimmick thing too much. I used OK Google now twice in 3 days. No joke.

So to me having all the extra features really doesn't mean anything.

How is the radio in the Moto X? Does it get better reception than the Nexus 5?

Just as good if not better.

The MotoX battery lasts almost twice as long too. The Nexus 5 is quite poor.

Any Moto X users waiting for Lollipop update ?

 

I wonder if Sprint will bake the Sprint Zone app in the update, now that Google includes VPL (Virtual Preload) to download pre set apps fromt he carrier when carrier  SIM is recognized on the phone.

 

Hope the Sprint App becomes optional due to the changes in Lollipop

 I received the Moto Update service last week, but I believe the Soak Test is for the GSM version, not the carrier version.

    • Roaming on band 2 T-Mobile that’s all


      Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • Yeah that tower is by mercy. I saw yesterday a tower being put up north or Penn and Memorial. 
    • Based on the earlier public released plans and interviews, that would be true on a market by market basis as the new T-Mobile converts B41 to 5G.  What is in the latest plans is anyone's guess.  Going to 5G would provide 100MHz wide carriers which would mean 5 times faster uploads before factoring in 5G speed improvements.  Could one radio handle all of the available B41 bandwidth that Sprint has in numerous cities (up to 8 or 9 20MHz carriers)? Rumors are the Sprint Massive MIMO radios can only handle 6 carriers for a total of 120MHz, but I could be wrong.   My understanding is also that T-Mobile small cells are all fiber fed which would free up bandwidth for phones.  T-Mobile would likely go for different radios hopefully covering the full 194Mhz since they would only want 5G support.  In deals like the Shentel-nTelos and T-Mobile-Metro PCS the FCC has always had the firms either upgrade the firmware to support the new network or to give discounts for new phones.  Your voice will only be heard if you tell the FCC.  The FCC comment period is now open until early December. If T-Mobile drops CDMA, then voice coverage will also be reduced given the vast range of 1x800. (I have observed it up to 50 miles away, but that is in rare cases).  In the Shentel-nTelos merger, LTE coverage was mandated to extend fully over all nTelos 3G coverage.  Once again this is something you should ask for.  Another area of concern is VoLTE support.  I personally think Sprint will only offer it on phones it is currently selling.  Hopefully T-Mobile will go back to phones such as the LG V20 and have VoLTE support.  But always best to ask. https://docs.fcc.gov/public/attachments/DA-18-1155A1.pdf https://www.fcc.gov/ecfs/search/filings?proceedings_name=18-197&sort=date_disseminated,DESC
    • Looks like Sprint and T Mobile have been active around my house.   I see at least 3 new small cells that have going up in the last 2 weeks and are active.    I can pull a band 41 signal from 2 of them... the 3rd I'm assuming is Sprint  or T-Mo?   I'm not sure what the T-Mobile small cells look like.   Its very good to see progress.    Does anyone know if the small cells can broadcast more than one frequency?  Ie... if the merger is approved and T-Mo turns band 41 into 5G... then I assume I will not be able to pull that in with my Samsung 9+? 
    • Oh and I assume much of this is was a negotiation to renew their lease.
