    It is odd. The phone manufacturers HAVE to know the pre-sales buzz drives us to buy.
    Pre-sales "hands on reviews" are like free ads... rarely do you see a truly negative review. You have to dig through several reviews to get an honest picture of the phones.
    I suspect because the reviewers want to keep getting phones.

    So if they all blew up, there'd still be some available for review.
    So there must be a major design flaw.
    I doubt they are adding a fingerprint reader, usb-c or anything like that...
    I'll say 65% design flaw, 30% they blew up in port, 3% marketing psychology, 2% adding goodness to the phone.
    Or none of those things, because Motorola said in September and it isn't September yet.

    I don't care if I have wait a little longer to get the phone in hand but it would be really wise of Motorola to get some review units out to let reviews keep the hype going and not get swallowed by iPhone mania (although admittedly moto x probably isn't competing that much with the iPhone but still).

    I basically just want to know if this phone is as good as it seems. Since software is pretty much known I am OK with basing my purchase on reviews rather than hands on experience. I just need to know if this is my next phone, preferably BEFORE the nexus arrives to confuse me.

    Verizon has probably got their grubby little paws in on this...they want the Droids released first so people will buy those and Verizon can make MORE MONEY!!!! They don't want more people buying the pure over the Droids, and most people will do just that because they don't follow these forums.
    Yeah right because one useless carrier wants to sell their crappy carrier branded phone, Motorola will delay the unlocked, unbranded model? They said they will release in September and will do.

    As far as Verizon they got the Moto X play as Droid variant so that they can mess up, uglify it and do whatever they want.

    I'm getting impatient, too. I think the issue here is more of their choice in timing between announcement date and release date. They had to do their full device announcement prior to the release date of their first (true flagship) devices. Meanwhile, the XPE was always known to be at the end of their logistical pipeline and, hence, would suffer a noticeable lag between announcement and launch date.

    So, yeah, the silence on the XPE isn't helping those of us anxious to get it but it was apparently always intended to be an "icing on the cake" kind of device and not their main focus (ie bread winner).

    Consider this an excellent opportunity to learn patience. And believe me--I'm struggling to get there myself.
    I have a Nexus 4 and S4. Have the money, just hadn't found a phone (other then the Nexus 5) that I liked enough to buy ... I wrote the book on patience (while upgrading my laptop and home entertainment!!)

    Other Android sites didn't confirm it, they all just reblogged the same Sept 3rd tweet story, which looks like it definitely won't happen. I'm expecting another few weeks of wait.

    guys it's not gonna be next week. maybe they'll announce the date, but expect mid September. it was supposed to be early September but got pushed back after the explosions in China ... if you remember, business across the world came to a halt after 9/11, so I think it's a reasonable explanation, especially considering the source (happy asian).

    and September 9th the fruit is making there lame *** boring announcement, so I doubt they'll choose that week.

    No news, is no news.
    We're now one month post announcement.
    I've concluded they either discovered a major flaw, or all ours were in the port explosion at Tianjin.

    How come my stupid Sammy keyboard can predict Tianjin but not my name after two years?
    lol ... that's hysterical. use the Google keyboard or Swype though!

    A buddy of mine who works at Sprint said in their meeting yesterday that the Pure edition was pegged for 9/2. The 32GB is supposed to start at $399 from motorola.com. Tab S2 is supposed to come out on 9/3 online and 9/11 in stores for $650. I wasn't going to say anything until I could get some kind of confirmation from him bt I couldn't. If he sends me a link today, I will post it.

    I want the Pure as bad as anyone but I am not going to rush out release day and buy one. I will wait a week or so and check out the reviews and the comments here from real users. What is an additional week or 2?

    I am also most curious to start seeing reviews prior to purchasing (although I honestly don't see anyone competing with the sheer value that this phone seems to be proposing).

    I'm mildly surprised that we have not yet seen some reviewers indicate that they have a unit on hand for review purposes. I don't expect the reviews until NDA/release date, but it's almost normal to see early posts from sites that say things such as "We have a unit on hand that we can't wait to tell you about in our upcoming review."

    I'm sure that this probably means we're still a few weeks away. All the better for those who may also be considering a Nexus, because certainly there will be more information on those handsets in the next weeks.

    Thank you

    Sprint may have the pricing wrong. The Moto Maker site says starting at $399...but that'd be the 16GB model.

    I didn't think there was a 16GB model?

    But in any case, having the 16GB version so cheap would render the Moto X Play obsolete, so it's not going to happen.

    The Sprint info is an interesting twist! What's a Moto fan to believe?

    Regardless, I am way ready for this, I'll be jumping on Moto Maker as soon as the PE becomes available.
