    I love the phone the battery is a beast, yes there is a but if Chrome lag but I can live with it.

    The main reason is even though I was 2,000,000 in the queue I received a OnePlus 2 invite yesterday and have ordered this and can't see the X Play getting much use then.

    I would still recommend this phone and I will really miss this battery but can't justify keeping both along with my LG G4 and Zenfone 2.

    If possible, I would wait until you got the opt before returning.

    I'd rather have the play than a oneplus but each to their own!

    Out of interest, which country are you in? I read about people in the states returning used phones all the time but in the UK I didn't think it was possible once used unless it was faulty

    Yeah I'm from the UK and I've noticed in the past that if I want to return a phone I have 14 days to do so but the phone needs to be in brand new condition with box and everything still in tact. I returned my M7 a couple of years ago as there was a chip on the top left hand side, Three (my service provider) told me that the phone would not have been shipped with that chip on it (basically calling me a liar) eventually they sent me a new one after I complained for ages lol.

    Never had an issue returning under the sales of goods act in the UK within 14 days, the problem is my 14 days will be up on Tuesday next week and I already have an LG G4.

    I never expected to get a OnePlus 2 invite this early, I liked my original OnePlus One and I like Oxygen OS.

    If I don't get on with it can just buy another X Play but can see me not using it. As I said best battery performer ever this X Play and it's not the phones fault I am returning it.

    So...what's the point of this thread?

    Nothing wrong with the X you say, but you're returning it because you got an invite to buy another phone. Ok...

    This necessitates starting a thread?

    Yes it does as I have been a real supporter of this phone and contributed a lot to these threads and wanted to explain why I was going to disappear from here.

    But thanks for your comments anyway.

    I think you're lucky to have been able to return used items in the UK. I think the sale if good act and distance selling rules all apply to unopened or unused items. It at least that's what I've always thought.

    Hope u enjoy your oneplus. Your posts in here have been useful and much appreciated

    Farewell! Good luck with that OnePlus.

    I actually registered for an invite and was 360,000(ish) on the list. Haven't got an invite yet. How strange. It seems to be totally random as I'm now 418,546 in the queue. I don't really mind though, I don't intend to buy one now.

    Thanks.

    All I can think is that I had the OnePlus One and I have been on the forum simce early 2014 I think so maybe that's why I got an invite?

    Using my LG G4 and I am kind of missing the X Play right now! I have not posted it off so still time to change my mind and sell the LG G4 instead.

    Very easy spoke to them on live chat yesterday, today they send a DHL pre paid label and I dropped it off to the local depot. Should get a refund within 10 days I think they said of them getting it back.

    I might do the same in that case. Simply because of the size. I'm finding myself increasingly wanting the smaller form factor of my Nexus 5 back. 5.5" might have been a step too far for me.

    I've yet to sell my Nexus 5 so I could easily go back to using that. And then go hunting for a phone that's no bigger than my Nexus 5 (current front runner - Xperia Z5 Compact).

    Still a bit bigger than my Nexus 5 and the custom interface kills it for me as it's still stuck on 5.0 Lollipop. Sony has made its UI a lot more like pure Android with the Z5 series and I trust Sony more in delivering updates to future versions of Android.

    I don't like the idea of saying goodbye to the Moto X Play, because there's so much I really do like about it. It's just that having used this device for just over a week now, the allure of a smaller form factor is very strong. I remember using my brother's iPhone 5S when I last visited a month or two back and saying 'wow, this size is actually pretty nice'.

    Wait for Nexus 5 or I think the Sony Z5 Compact may be worth looking at, for me 5.5 inch is the smallest I want.

    Trouble is, if the rumours are to be believed, the new Nexus will be almost the same size as this phone (it supposedly has larger bezels). It's a difficult decision though, as I really do like having the big display for YouTube videos and web browsing etc. Decisions, decisions...

    LOL. Just the second day using the phone and I'm adapting quite well to the size. The big display is wonderful and I'm sure it'll be difficult going back to a smaller one. I was afraid that writing one handed could be tricky but not at all. Swiping with SwiftKey feels even better that with my last phone.

    And yeah, the new Nexus 5 is going to be the same size. This was one of my reasons to buy the Play instead of waiting.

    Haha I can't use this phone one handed at all. Even using my Nexus 5 one-handed was a struggle for me. I just have tiny, tiny hands because I'm a tiny, tiny person overall!

    I'm nervous about going bigger from my N5. I've got a couple of mates who went from N5 to Note 4 and they said they'll never go back to smaller screen/device.

    Haven't ordered the Play yet as waiting for reviews of the Style and also confirmed details of the Nexus.

    Got to wait until October anyway as I may be being made redundant which makes the choice easier (stick with N5 until get new job)!

    I have also started the return process. Reason; just a bit too large for my liking. I've realised that 5.5" phones are not really suitable for my tiny pockets and tiny hands! I've ordered a Sony Xperia Z5 Compact for easy one-handed usability and pocketability.
