    Photos taken under 6500k lighting so they are quite accurate to the actual color of the device. The leather is a tad less saturated which I could fix with a little editing(along with some noise reduction) but I don't really feel like it at the moment. So far the phone exceeds my expectations. The screen is quite accurate with very good black levels as well. Not quite as good as an OLED panel or the pseudo quantum dot enhanced LCD of the g4 but surprisingly close as long as you properly adjust brightness to fit your environment. It hasn't gotten any warmer than any snapdragon 801,805, 808 device that I have used or own. I have downloaded 127 apps back to back and run antutu a few times just to test heat more than anything else since people are so overly and unnecessarily concerned. Storage starts at about 50GB for the 64GB version. I haven't really tested the camera yet but will once I get things set up.
    is that the red leather? that looks sick!

    50GB? That is nuts low for a non bloated device. What the heck is taking the space? 59.6 is the normal available storage on 64GB, so that means Motorola is eating almost 10GB of storage. That makes Samsung devices seem conservative in comparison. Jeepers. There should be at least 5GB more free.

    Example is the Note 4 out of box took 5GB for a 32GB (24.9GB free out of 29.8). Something odd is going on it seems with device allocation. There should be more storage on a non bloated device- not a lot less.

    Yep, red leather. I am quite pleased with it. It feels excellent. It has an ever so slight supple cushioning to it that's just awesome. It's very unique compared to everything else that I have used, particularly the rigid leather of the G4.

    Well color me confused. While I am glad you all are getting yours, how the heck does any of this make sense? Some get theirs delivered with no notifications, some changed today as they were getting delivered. Not a crazy design by any stretch, no greeting or engraving and an order number small than a lot that are getting theirs. Oh well. I got a shed to fix this weekend anyway.

    My delivery is also the 17th. I have not received a tracking number either. I was told last night that today is the day for delivery. I hope so. Looking at everyone else with their phones has me feeling some type of way.
    I wonder if the rep messed up and meant to say shipping today and not delivered today

    I don't know but I am looking into it. The total space according to the device is 53.18GB with about 49.6GB available before I started downloading anything. It should have been 53GB to 54GB after the OS before downloads so a good 3-4GB is just gone. It could be an issue with the NAND, the software could be incorrectly reading the available storage, who knows? At the moment, it isn't my primary focus.

    Like any tanned leather: terrible and somehow mildly like urine even though it was vegetable tanned.

    Motorola needs to explain this since not really 64GB storage even by the normally misunderstood manner of people not considering format parameters and stock apps taking some of the 64GB. The normal available for 64GB is 59.6GB (pre OS and stock apps), so something odd is going on compared to other devices and actually makes their storage less than even Samsung devices. Moto should call them 12GB, 28GB and 60GB models. Not adding up.

    Even if we added the Samsung stock bloat the storage is way short of what it should be.

    Where were you guys able to obtain a tracking number for FedEx? I've heard people getting their devices while Motorola still has their phone labeled as "as being built", but still somehow having a tracking number.
    Google Fed Ex Home Delivery Manager and register. Then you can login and Fed Ex will show if they have any shipments to your name and address. Good luck

    that is bizarre, the formatted capacity should be around 59GB even if the /system partition took 8gb you'd have more than 49 free. something def seems wonky.

    anyone else with a 64gb model showing less than 50gb available on boot?

    i wonder what the 16 and 32gb models are showing

    My XPE, which was scheduled for 9/15 delivery, is on the delivery truck as I write this. Fast delivery!!! Those of you who have a 9/15 delivery date should check your tracking number for the latest update.
    Are you sitting by the door 😁

    Does anyone know where they are shipped from? Is the origination China? What are the typical transport times from picked up to delivered?

    I ordered mine (white/champagne, cognac leather, champagne accent, no custom engraving or message) within an hour of moto-maker opening up on 9/2. My order is still in the "Order Approved" phase on the order status page and my card has not been charged. I called customer support today and they said it was already built and is waiting to be picked up by FedEx. They said I will get a tracking number once FedEx actually picks up the device. I've had a delivery date of 9/24 from the start but customer support made a point that it would be delivered on OR BEFORE that date. Really hoping for the latter They were unable to tell me why I am yet to be charged. I guess that'll be another little surprise coming my way.

    My guess is an allocation/firmware error that was missed, but the only way to fix would be a complete reset and correct parameters in new firmware. Problematic changing it otherwise. Nothing else seems to make sense (compared to other devices).

    That's my fault. I meant to type today is the day for shipping. I wasn't fully awake when I typed that this morning. I still haven't received any type of shipping confirmation.

    Deep sea blue with lemon accent. I didn't really think that I would like the color of the accent but I love it. The only thing I am wondering is will it affect resale value.

    It looks good! Personally I think engraving would affect resale the most. I think people could see past the custom welcome message, though it is not ideal but just having their colors, it looks good. I wouldn't worry about it.
