    Glad I'm not the only one. I just think it looks beautiful in that combo. I wish they didn't make 16gb at all since it's like a couple bucks more for 32gb as an OEM but oh well. $399 + $25 for wood + $50 for 32GB model = $475 + tax = $500!!! I don't even know if I will get $500 for my S6 Edge by September LOL

    You should get pretty close for that.

    Why are you selling the Edge? My friend has one and loves it.

    Granted, he doesn't know the difference between stock Android and skinned and probably still wouldn't care if you explained it to him.

    How has the wood and leather of the 2014 Moto x handled a year of wear and tear? I keep going back and forth between the two.

    Yeah. That's what I'm thinking.

    I am not selling it yet, but I'll have to, in order to buy X 2015. I had the G4 before this and IMHO, G4 camera is superior but skin is heavier than TW and just lags all over the place. If I would not use my phone for texting and web stuff, I'd get the G4. S6 Edge, IMHO, is the best phone of 2015 so far..and that's not saying much since SD810 killed half the phones, SD808 has potential but LG skin killed that phone..there is not much left this year to use. I switch phones a lot so I'll order the X if it gets good reviews and sell the Edge to pay for it or most of it. Still have my 2014 Verizon X with bamboo back posted on CL and just sold Nexus 6 ....you see where I'm coming from

    Yeah, people usually go for Galaxy or iPhone...they don't know jack about phones. Anyone I know who bought LG complained that "Android lags" and went back to iPhone. Sucks that people rate Android based on crappy heavy skins and go back to iPhone that does everything well but not super duper at anything and if you want to do some serious multitasking, forget about it.

    I wish OEMs would give you all of it and not just 2 out of 3 or 5 out of 7 in a phone. This is 2015, if they haven't learned anything by now, they never will. Just my .02 cents.

    Not totally related but the Congac Leather band (also available as a back on the second gen Moto X) for my Moto 360 has worn nicely.

    both the wood and especially the leather have held up extremely well ... certainly much better than the leather on the G4. just treat it every now and then, keep it out of the sun, and you'll be good to go!

    Not that the images came out the other day showing what can be customized I am pretty happy the speaker grills will be customized, the dark word, with red accents for me and might go silver for the metal edge.

    Thanks but is it slippery ?

    I wouldn't call it slippery, but if you're going for grip it isn't ideal ... it's definitely a looker though, if you're going for the wow factor it's a solid choice.

    This is a tough decision. In the short term and for the wow factor, it seems leather and wood options are best. For practical use and long term wear and tear, silicon might be the best choice. I like the improved grip the silicon offers, which is important for one handed use with a big phone. It doesn't seem to show prints and would hopefully hold up over time quite well. Is it soft? Or more like the first generation Moto x?

    All the customization available with the Moto X along with the good hardware, clean OS, timely updates and good price make this an awesome choice for my next phone. Gonna wait to see what comes from the Nexus line but Moto has really nailed it here. I'll be lookin' for some colors to match my Steelers and Pirates but you guys have some great ideas for color combos.

    Thinking about the leather options now if the black lens isn't available for the gold frame.

    Maybe black lens, gold accents and cognac leather?

    Or maybe blue accents?

    I know it is personal and I actually prefer the black front but after I watch more of Moto X pure on YouTube more and more I feel like the white front is very nice..

    What do you think? What color combination do u have in mind?

    Hey Moto: What are you waiting for in opening Motomaker to design the Moto X Style/Pure, etc?? You have the software in place. You can start stacking orders and fulfill them when you actually release the phone to the public. I don't get it.

    I usually prefer black front bezels on phones and like having the entire face match when the phone is off. That said, I like the lighter backs on the Moto X style so I would probably go with the untreated aluminum trim with a bamboo or light grey silicone back.

    Black front.

    All those sensors on the white front will show so easily and frankly, look a mess to me.

    I'll never buy a white lens device again.

    I always want a white front, but once I get it I always prefer black. I had a white note 4 and a white lg g2 and a white 2014 x, all got sold for black versions.

    Completely agree. I usually go for black and keep wanting to try white phones but those sensors look funny all exposed. Will go black front

    Black all the way. It makes the bezels less noticeable.

    White stands out and looks nice with all colors. On white fingerprints are not so noticeable I always had black front phones this time I choose white front with raspberry or lime back
