    I still think it would be really cool to have a fingerprint scanner, but it looks more and more like that isn't going to happen

    I've read quite a few rumors that it will have one, but more recently its been left off.

    I'd definitely prefer having one, but if I can get a solid camera, bigger battery and near stock I'll be happy.

    kevlar/front facing speakers would blow me away and I'd definitely sacrifice the fingerprint scanner for all those features.

    to be fair, I've never used quick charge or wireless charging. judging from reviews/comments, I imagine if I had a taste of em, they'd be a necessity and I'd be singing a different tune!

    Motorola needs to bring it with the camera.

    Agreed.... I love my Nexus 6.. I don't think the size is that big a deal but just a hair smaller would make it dang near perfect...

    5.7 inch, slightly bigger battery than the Nexus 6, Qi Charging with stock android and I'd be sold...

    Ya exactly. Like a 3900amh battery would be perfect to be a bit bigger and offer more juice considering its a hair smaller than the nexus 6. Honestly, I love my nexus 6 but I honestly miss my moto software. The software in my opinion isn't given enough credit for how useful they are to compliment the stock Android experience.

    I've decided that my minimum requirements for my next phone are fingerprint scanner, USB-C, faster Android upgrades (than Samsung), and a big battery.

    If Moto can't deliver, I'll wait for the next generation.

    My guess is that it'll be 2017 or later before you buy a new phone unless you change your requirements.

    Well the new nexus phones are supposed to have all those things. Except maybe the bigger battery.

    I picked up a second generation Moto X for my daughter.... The only reason I never got one was because of the Qi wireless charging.. I've invested in several Qi chargers for home and the office when I had my Nexus 5 and 7 (now 6) that I really was bummed they left that out... But now that I've had the Moto X for about a week I am very impressed with how Motorola uses stock android with very minimal additional things to greatly improve the overall experience plus the additional sensors they use......

    I also didn't think it was too small...

    I don't know if I would go down to a 5.2 inch device now... 5.5 would probably be my minimum size... 5.7 with as you said 3,900 battery would probably be perfect... I'd even be perfectly okay with a really nice top of the line 1080p screen... Before I got the Nexus 6 I compared the Note 3 and 4 side by side and the difference between 1080p and qHD was almost impossible to tell by the naked eye.... I'd take the improved battery life of a top end 1080p screen vs the minimal improvement in resolution on the qHD..... But that is just me.... and at the same time my Nexus 6 easily last me all day long without any issues.... I couldn't go 5 - 6 hours with my Nexus 5.... My overall usage is much higher with the 6 and that is mostly because the battery is pretty solid.....

    Man good luck..... Doesn't seem that anyone makes a high end device under 5 inches (Well unless you want an iPhone) I remember getting the original HTC EVO at 4.3 inches and thinking "There is no way I could go any bigger than this." and each phone since got a little bigger, a little bigger and now I am perfectly comfortable with my Nexus 6.....

    I think there would be a market for something in the 4.7 inch size...... I don't think Google/Nexus will go there.....

    My S4 is still usable. It may even get 5.1.1 some day.

    I think I may wait for this phone... Especially if it will be at the same price point as last year's model which was $99 on a two-year contract.

    Booo. That sucks. If One Plus could do it then why couldn't Motorola?

    Probably since the X hardware has been more or less final since the beginning of the year.

    So if that's the case, you think that One Plus just decided on USB C right when Google announced it as a standard for Android starting with Android M? And do you think that One Plus design still may not be final?

    Being a shop that is much much smaller than Moto, I would assume they have more flexibility and can more easily change things in the development phase.

    Put it this way, work on the 2016 X has already begun.

    I know. It's just nice to be able to be future proof, that's all.

    ~5", ~$350, unlocked. I really liked the size of my Nexus 5. I passed on the Nexus 6 due to the size (If it were smaller I'd have passed anyway due to the price). The size of my MotoX 2014 is manageable, but I still prefer the size of the Nexus 5.

    I'm not trying to discredit your predictions, simply wondering what your connection to Moto is that so many others take your word as gospel?

    I've agreed with most of what you've suggested will be on the new Moto X, but only from "feel" after reading all the articles/rumors. Would love for it to have the SD option.

    Just curious, thx!

    it'll be interesting to see if the Note 5 uses USB-C. I'll be disappointed, as it's a feature I really want since I hope my next device will last 24-36 months, but not a deal breaker.

    an improved camera, even slightly below S6/G4 quality, and a larger battery are my top priorities. they come with anything less than 3200mAh I'll probably just grab the Nexus or Note. kevlar, front facing speakers, and that rumored 3280 battery on a 5.2" display would probably win me over.

    If I remember correctly, he has a friend who works for Moto.
    His track record on upcoming Moto devices has been amazing. Usually, if he says it, he's seen it.
