    This is incredibly disappointing. I've been waiting anxiously for this update, in hopes it would fix the "cell standby" bug I've had since the Lollipop update. I truly hope this is some kind of internal miscommunication.

    I am definitely not disputing that the carrier versions will not get the update, but it is interesting that Moto certified the carrier versions for Marshmallow but will not be updating them:

    Wi-Fi Alliance Certifies Moto X 2014 Marshmallow Update | Androidheadlines.com

    As mentioned, the Wi-Fi Alliance has recently certified an update to pass to the Moto X, specifically the model numbers XT1092, XT1093/XT1094, XT1095/XT1097, and XT1096

    I'm not to concerned just yet. Seems short-sighted to abandon a flagship barely one year old. If so, I might have to rethink my phone purchasing habits.

    This is likely a carrier decision and not a Motorola one. They probably sold very few of the carrier model and the carriers ultimately passed on paying for the update.

    It's frustrating because we will never really know the dynamic between the carriers and moto. It's obvious moto considered the update for all versions, but was that an early move in the process before a decision was made? Did the carriers tell moto no? Did moto even push to update them? What policies and agreements dictate these conversations? How much do we blame the carriers and how much should we blame moto?

    These are questions we will never know.

    In all honesty, I have the 2014 and my wife has the 2013. I am in the market to replace her 2013 with either the new pure or a Nexus. Despite there not being a carrier involved, I am still putting this as a check mark against buying a 2015 X. For all the amazing things moto has done, I am becoming skeptical of the future.

    Yes, but I have the Verizon version.

    I realize that moto should be better with unlocked versions, but they have also had a trend of dumping devices lately. Their reasons may be legitimate, but dropping support is still dropping support. Even if moto is consistently better than other manufacturers, they seem to be slowly loosing that edge. With new management and restructuring, who really knows how moto will handle things going forward.

    Whew! There are some really angry people on that forum! Thanks for the link though. I especially found the idea that the decision not to upgrade belongs more to Verizon and AT&T than Motorola very interesting and probably true. In terms of shear numbers it's really not a big deal to the carriers. They sell boatloads more iPhones than anything made by Motorola so why would they care to commit resources to upgrade their branded 2014 Moto Xs?

    After I got the first moto x I swore I would never leave Motorola. I love that phone. I got the 2014 and not only has it been a disappointment with no data/cellular, now this. What a joke. Goodbye moto, it's been a nice run.

    Unfortunately yes. I bought my AT&T branded 2014 Moto X through Moto Maker, and it's going to be left out. I'm disappointed but would never consider going to an iPhone. I do own an iPad, so it's not like I'm boycotting Apple - it's just not my cup of tea. I feel too restricted with Apple. If I was done with Motorola (which I'm not), I would go for a Nexus.

    I've been on record a few times around AC that I had misgivings about the lenovo ownership. I had already made up my mind that their firing of the original Moto X software team was cause enough to be suspicious, but my crystal ball (unfortunately) appears intact with this latest news. I see little reason to trust that lenovo intends to carry on the initial direction Moto was given under Google in a positive way.

    I'm getting too old and fed up with the OEM+Carrier update structure of Android to continue it any longer. From now on I'll be choosing my upgrades based purely on which of two devices I prefer more that year: Nexus or iPhone. Nexus I find hit or miss, some years I like them, others not. That's why I'll be using iPhone as my "Plan B" for those years. I am still quite interested in the Xperia Z5 but I just happen to like what I've seen so far of the Nexus 6p slightly more. I've also been burned for a good chunk of my previous and current phone contracts by significant software issues that took at least 25% of the duration of owning a phone to resolve due to the OEM-to-Carrier update structure.

    This time around it was even worse. I received Lollipop around march this year and the lollipop battery drain issue will persist all the way to 6.0 so that means a total of 12 months waiting for a resolution since I wouldn't see it until March 2016 if I was going to keep my current device. From now on it's only going to be Nexus or iPhone for me.

    To abandon support of their flagship phone less than a year after its release is ridiculous. Goodbye Motorola. I've been a loyal customer for over a decade but am done with you.

    I use 2 Macs; so, the iPhone would fit my personal setup well, but the prices are ridiculous. Not crazy about the latest Nexus phones ... I decided to wait for news about the Droid Turbo 2. Hoping for great news!
