    For a sealed battery with a 5.7 screen it falls a little short. Note 5 is rumored to have a 4000. If they had put the 3600 in there I don't think anyone would have had a problem. It just seems like Moto made some small sacrifices to keep the price down somewhat.

    I do hate the gap as well. I am actually very interested in this phone. I have never tried a stock android phone before.

    Note 4 is 3220 and has a 5.7" display and gets great SOT.

    I hate this time gap between launch and the device actually getting into customer hands. It's because we only find out about problems with battery life, hardware defects, software issues like stutter etc once a few months go by and the honeymoon phase is over. Which basically means if this phone comes out in Aug-Sept, it'll be around Dec before we start painting a good overall picture.
    To be fair it's still a year release from last year. I much prefer they tell us about the device now than to just have an announcement on the Moto G and let potential customers buy the OPO2 or maybe even the Note 5 depending on when they're ready to drop that one.

    It's the not knowing that bothers me and at least now I know and I can make a more informed decision on which to buy. Also....you'll have a return period so test all that stuff out yourself and return it if it doesn't live up to your hype.

    When I first held the 2014 X, it felt 'too big,' but I eventually came around to like the new size. I expect that could happen one more time with the 2015 X. However, I was really hoping for a fingerprint scanner this time around. The scanner on my iPad offers security & extra functions -- I wanted that on my X.

    If Motorola does the Christmas discounts again this year, I may upgrade. The phone itself doesn't draw me in to purchase it even at the affordable full retail price.

    Very excited about: Pure edition, Price, screen size, overall size of the phone (it is smaller in every dimension except thickness than an iPhone 6 plus which I consider a pretty manageable phone - for a phablet)

    Seems promising: Camera - I'll be eagerly awaiting reviews on this. I'm not so worried about OIS. Sure it can help but even the iPhone 6 (regular version) doesn't have OIS and no one complains about that camera. Conversely my Nexus 5 has OIS and it certainly wasn't a magic fix.

    Concerned: Battery size. 5.7inches, QHD, stock Android (not as good with battery life) and a 3000mAh battery seems concerning. Sure it is much better than 2300mAh but this phone is going to need the power. I'm not a super heavy user but if I'm going to have a phablet I expect good to great battery life from it otherwise it might as well be a smaller phone if I can't use it that often. And no, super duper turbo charging does not excuse poor battery life.

    This took so long to click I'm amazed, but I wonder why they didn't include wireless charging? I LOVE that for using with my car dock....

    I was hoping to see USB-c and Wireless Charging. Would rather have that than SD card.

    Still hoping to see an unlockable bootloader for the Pure edition on Verizon. That would be enough to persuade me to switch from my VZW Nexus 6 - I miss the Moto enhancements - twist for camera; reading my texts in the car, wave my hand over the phone to see status.

    Sounds like camera will be better, if not quite as good as LG4/Galaxy s6.

    I really was looking forward to a new Moto X, having had bothe the first two, but I think ill be moving on to a different brand after this.

    Dealbreaker:
    Size - The 2014 X is already at the upper edge of my one handed useability, so this will easily be too big.

    Crushing blow:
    No AMOLED - Sounds like a battery killer with active notifications, which is one of my favorite features on the phone.

    Non dealbreakers, but letdowns:
    No OIS
    No fingerprint scanner

    The big questions for me looks like, what Android OEM will keep making a phone that's easy to handle and offers top end performance?

    The specs look nice to me, but the size seems too huge. I'm going to wait for the LG Nexus.

    Everything looks good except the fact that it doesn't have OIS. The question becomes, with my shaky hands, can I take clear, non-blurry photos with this phone? If so, I'll probably buy it. If not, I'll take the OnePlus Two.

    I will base my decision to buy the Pure Edition based on which way everyone decides to pronounce PE. If it's 'pee' no. If it's 'peh' then yes. That way people will ask, " hey is that the new Moto X peh?"

    All other insignificant points about this phone pale in comparison.

    How will the battery life with the smaller battery be compared to the larger battery life on the droid turbo?

    One thing I hadn't considered ... will the 'Pure Edition' work with a Verizon Wireless sim? Thank you.

    I'm fine with the non AMOLED screen. But 5.7inch screen is too big. Its almost in the mini tablet category. I would have preferred 4.7 inches. Also if they could not have put in a bigger capacity battery then I would have preferred 1080p screen instead of a 1440p screen because let's be honest, 1440p practically makes no difference over 1080p.But if they wanted 1440p then i would have preferred a 4000mah battery.

    Style looks to be really nice. I guess Moto ran the numbers and more people wanted micro sd than wireless charging. I'll stick to my Nexus 6, but if I didn't have it, I would be looking for a Moto Style.

    According to Motorola the phone will work on every US carrier.

    I think the Style is too big. I really like size of the 2014 Moto X. Also concerned about active display on a non amoled display like others mentioned. I probably wont upgrade anytime soon.

    Lenovo did a pretty bang up job with the takeover. For a couple hundred less than the S6 you lose ois on the camera which is still scoring well regardless, but gain better software, battery life, and faster updates.

    Yes. They have a specific chip for that and it's a signature feature of the Moto X.
