Moto X 2015 "Pure Edition" [users thread]


Recommended Posts

So I've been back on the MXPE for 24 hours and I love and hate it ;)  I remember all the good things about the phone, used miracast last night for netflix, etc.  Man to I miss fingerprint auth on the Nexus 6P, typing passwords sucks.  I also miss Oreo, this thing is good with Nougat, but Oreo with the fill in API would allow Last Pass to pre-populate PWs for me.

Count me as another Best Buy Mobile success story.  I went in with the UPC for the correct UICC/CSIM for the 2015 Moto X.  Less than five minutes and $10 later, I walked out with the right 4FF nano SI

You asked for a comparison -- you got it.     https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1EVoM9I5cC0kFucQZ_H2YF22EBZX4fzQOmLm50QokRg8/edit?usp=sharing   AJ

Do you have a miracast dongle ? When I use miracast on my Moto X using the amazon stick the screen keeps on. while playing video. I switched to chromecast, the user experience is way better. Im curious on the application.

Both of my TVs natively support miracast, I look for that in a television, so I stick to Samsung and LG.  I don't have high speed internet at home, so I use my mobile data to stream, then miracast to have it on the big screen :)

Well seems like Nougat is out now for the Moto X Pure, got the notification to upgrade but was out of space, ran the update and its gone. Gonna have to wait now.

@nexuss4g  PLEASE let us know how Nougat goes.  The Lollipop update made my 1st Gen Moto X much less enjoyable (WiFi and BT drop outs).  I'm going to hold out as long as possible before mistakenly accepting the update. 

I wonder if I should go back to the clean update that I gleamed I should do on the above mentioned Gen ! update.

I was on the Test Drive on Nougat all summer, using my device as Wifi only with a cracked screen.  Battery life isn't as great marshmellow, but still acceptable.  I've been using the phone as my daily driver for a week now and its preformed very well.  Only real issue I have is BT seems to break up more easily than my Nexus 6P.  I have to keep the phone on my left side if its in a pocket or the audio gets choppy.

I been on Nougat for 2 days now, I have not seen any issues, I really hate the new notifications bar and the settings toggle when swiping down. The phone seems a bit snappier, the old messaging app (green icon) was replaced with messages which I was already using. I will install Android for Work later during the day to put my work email and apps to see how it works, I removed it as I wanted to disconnect from work. Can't really tell about battery life as my phones battery is in really bad shape. Have to plug it in every 4 hours. Seems to me that Nougat was just a under the hood update honestly, I have not seen anything new that has wow me yet. Split screen is a nice addition. Oh and new emoji, finally get emojis from my iphone friends but really hate the new ones.  Personal opinion, the older emojis display more emotion and used to look cool, the new ones look  like apple or on the iphone.

      Not sure if this has come up elsewhere, regarding the Moto X/M leak a few weeks ago (just move it if it has), but I can't seem to find any information on the SOC that is being reported. Only thing I seem to find is that it's Cat-6 compatible, but it doesn't appear that this chipset is used in any existing Sprint phones (or other US phone, seems only to be overseas) to get an idea of how well the radios work and what the connectivity would be like.

      Obviously, it would only have 2-band CA as well as other limitations, but do we have anything comparable to this to give us an idea if we should be watching for a mid-range phone that will be hitting above its weight class? Or should we all just suck it up and go with the next Nexus and the Snapdragon 82X? I'm really gunning for the 4.6" Moto, but if the reception is lacking (whether LTE or WiFi), or it's not Sprint LTE Plus compatible, I'd rather just not waste my time. I'm still rocking my 2013 Moto X, I just really wish it were LTE Plus at this point, with a little bit better RAM management.
