    I have the Sprint version, but In only disabled 6 apps, otherwise the phone came near bloat free out of the box.

    IIRC, but is the AT&T Address Book the only pre-installed AT&T app that can't be disabled?

    I think you need to define what you consider to be AT&T's bloatware.

    Motorola's apps aren't bloatware. They are features of the Moto X.

    Don't really know. Just know when I look at my apps there are a ton of them. I didn't download them so I can only assume they're preloaded don't know if they are at or Motorola.
    Like I said I'm not the most tech savvy person.

    Then maybe you'd best leave them alone.

    My case is a bit different since I use very few Google apps or cloud services.

    I still leave enabled: PlayStore, Maps, YouTube, Google Search, Translate, Touchless Control and Active Display.

    If you know what the term "bloatware" means, you're smarter than you say you are

    Studies were done extensively, but have concluded that yes, the bird is the word.

    The point is, is that AT&T is engaging in what is known as "false advertising". On their site for the 2 year contract Moto X (2nd gen)

    Key features include:
    5.2” HD display
    Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 801 quad-core processor
    13MP camera with 4K capture
    Pure Android™ experience
    Moto voice control



    OOPS! OOOPS! DOH!

    "Gee, let's hope that our ***** customers don't know what pure android means."


    Let me make this clear.

    IF IT DOESN'T COME OUT OF THE BOX EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE PURE EDITION, THEN IT'S NOT A PURE ANDROID EXPERIENCE.
