    First is first, this is great phone. I actually got the Moto camera to take a decent picture. Took a lot of practice, as in a few hundred pictures, but the camera is serviceable for folks not worried about awesome photos. I am not, my pics are for Facebook, Instagram, etc.

    Second, the signal is crazy good. I got a signal in the basement where I work. I got a signal in elevators. I got a signal at my Wife's work. I love it. No dropped calls. I can hear everyone loud and clear.

    Third, the size! Whoa, looks like the phone should be bigger, the screen is that good. The phone fits inside of the dimensions of my S3's screen. Can't tell it's in my scrub pockets.

    Fourth through one hundredth....... It's liquid smooth. This is what all Android should want to be.

    Why is it going back? THE BATTERY BLOWS. Today, I am down to 74% in 8 hours, only 10 minutes of screen time, no blue tooth, no streaming, no email syncing, nothing. I have given it 5 power cycles now. The battery is not improving. I paid for GSam Pro. No wake-locks. The battery just can not handle it.

    Grant82 says he gets 6 hours of screen time, I get about 2.5-3 hours worth, tops. It's closer to 2-2.5 hours worth. It's the same on Wifi or 4G. this phone has not helped my battery anxiety, so it is going back. /sigh. I guess I have to pay for a brick and get the G2. No Touchwhiz for this dude. I am an AT&T guy now, so no droid Maxx.

    Could you paste your battery screenshot? I'm willing to bet it's an app.

    That def seems below average but with nothing running or sync'ing it should be higher.

    Actually I said that I am routinely getting between 6 and 8 hours of screen time with my Moto X per charge and on day six the trend continues. Here are a couple of parting screen shots that I just took, just for you....

    I am glad you are getting decent screen time. My screen time is the suck.

    74% in 8 hours? Still a upgrade for me. I get like 20% in 6 hours, no use. Maybe it is a app that's causing it though.

    I agree that battery life is not what I had hoped, but I still think it's comparable to other flagship phones. In all the screenshots I see people seem to be having unusually high android OS usage. On phones I had in the past it was never more than 5% or so and usually was like the fourth or fifth item on the battery list. On the X, android OS is frequently double digits and is almost always second in usage behind screen. In my experience that is not normal nor is it ideal.

    I returned mine too, but because I prefer the size of the droid mini. Consider giving it a try. Or wait for the dev edition of the X. Maybe it would be better without all the bloat ware.

    And I'm glad that you are no longer lashing out and calling people liars when they are telling you that the Moto X has great battery life. Like I said, I have everything turned on. All location services, google now, assist, moto connect and even the moto location for lost phones. Bluetooth is off. Honestly my times are almost identical on WiFi or LTE. Heck I have google now notifying me on how much I walked in August.....not sure why but it is. Llama manages my Wifi. If you do a factory reset and start all over again and still have crap battery times then exchange it. The Moto X is really the best Android out right now. In my opinion.

    All the bloat ware on the Moto X? The Moto X is not bloated like your mini, you understand that right?

    The Verizon version had more bloat than the AT&T version broseph. Settle down.

    And yes I agree the Mini has more.

    Edit: didn't know the OP was on AT&T.

    I am not lashing out. O still haven't seen a 6 hour screen time photo. I am sure, I should get more than 2 hours though.

    You posted this two days ago, sounded like lashing out to me. "Post it, it's that easy. If you don't post it, it flat out did not happen. It's not even hard to post, and is super easy to prove. I am calling you a liar until you actually post the screen shot.

    We don't need fanbois exaggerating facts. Let the phone sell it self. There is no way this thing gets 6-8 hours of screen time with this battery.

    It is a very nice phone, and I really enjoy it, my favorite phone so far, I just refuse to even entertain bull****. 6-8 hours, put up those screen shots, or stop lying."

    may be you should get a replacement ..I consistently get screen times between 4:30 to 5:30 hrs, with my usage patterns, and most of the people who used the phones seemed to be satisfied with the battery life ..may be you just got a device with under performing battery.

    look at your Android OS vs Grant's. any idea why this is so high? it is really high on mine as well......

    - - - Updated - - -

    currently i'm at 62% with 11 hour on time, and only 50 minutes screen time.......

    I wonder about the Android OS percentage. Mine is high like the OP but, I do have more screen time. I'm at 72% after 7hrs and 46 minutes off the charger and 1hr and 7 min. screen time. I really like this phone but, admit I'm disappointed in the battery. I'm think about factory resettting and seeing it that helps. Before today, Android OS wasn't this high in percentage.

    I'm on my first charge today.

    54 percent left on battery..

    2hrs 44 min on screen. I'm clear to get 5+ hrs screen time. I'm loving it!

    Definitely should take the phone back..
