    I am starting to get concerned about the lack of two radios in the VZW version that I ordered.
    One or two radios? I'm not sure about this type of concern... the SPEC's say:

    Verizon (XT1096):
    • GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
    • UMTS/HSPA+ (850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz)
    • CDMA (850, 1900 MHz)
    • 4G LTE (02, 03, 04, 07, 13)
    I don't remember all the LTE or other frequencies that VZW uses, but this looks like a fairly good list of them.

    Those are the bands. Not the radios. The original VZW Moto X had two radios capable of voice and data at the same time. The new VZW Moto X has one.

    My specific concern is this:

    No simultaneous voice and data... trips in traffic where I am on the phone and Google can't re-route me around traffic since my one radio is tied up with voice.

    Verizon has VoLTE coming to solve this but that sounds like dropped call hell

    All of the new Motorola's only have a single antenna for voice/data (Moto X (2014), Droid Turbo, Nexus 6). It is likely this will be the case going forward on all future Verizon phones. Sprint phones have already moved to this design as of a year ago when Spark phones launched and of course GSM phones only need a single antenna to achieve voice and data at the same time due to how GSM works.

    There are threads on this section of the forum that already talk about VoLTE... VZW has plans on implementing this some time next year.

    Here is just one: http://forums.androidcentral.com/mot...hile-call.html
