    I leave that to the experts.

    Maybe I'm just sensitive but I find the G4 warm up sometimes too. I mean the Moto X never gets too hot or anything. It might have been because I was restoring all my apps. Or the bamboo back.

    I think that the S6 Active was the coolest to the touch feeling phone I've used recently.

    I shouldn't complain about something free, but I'd rather have a rubber bumper than plastic. Hopefully someone will make a good one.

    Is the clear bumper rubber or hard plastic?

    Well that blows...I wonder if there's any possibility of Marshmallow changing that.

    Loading up a bunch of apps can get the device very warm. Especially if using LTE and somewhat with WiFi.

    Few questions since I'm not really that much in the know with specs.

    I currently own a Note 4, would getting this be more of an upgrade or a downgrade? Specs seem the same to me.

    My biggest worry is display. I really love that amoled display the note has. Colors are craaaazy. Now if the Moto X is just a tad crapier (but can still amazing on its own), then I have no problem continuing with my purchase! Only thing I'm really worried about with the switch basically are:

    1.)Dispaly
    2.)Speed (I multitask a lot in my Note. Chrome/Facebook mainly though. No games)
    3.)Overall premium feel

    Any thoughts on this? Been wanting to try stock android for awhile now. Thought now would be a good time to jump in and give it a shot.

    I did not expect heat being a point since the G4 does not appear to get very warm. My S4 though would get hot. Especially in weaker signal areas. Note 4 does not.
    Really? My G4 gets smoking hot while playing games (after just a few minutes)! It's gotten better since the last T-Mobile update and I debloated the heck out of it, but still significantly warmer than any other device I've had. It's also my first LCD panel, so I attributed to that; which had me concerned now that the X switched to LCD

    G4'ed it!

    I think I have given up on getting that version. Though it looks like Bestbuy 32GB version is the White & Champagne.

    A few questions for the OP

    1. Is there a power saving option like Samsung has that cuts power use some? Not talking about ultra power saver mode that shuts most things down, but Samsung has a mode that throttles the chipset about 30% and display attributes some to help battery life. One of the few Samsung add-ons I actually find useful and usually leave on.

    2. Can you turn the shake and motion sensors off?

    3. How is brightness at 30%? I am hoping part of the battery issues noted in reviews is relative brightness when they tested at 50%.

    Not the OP but...

    1. Yes Battery Saver mode can be enabled at 15% or 5%.

    2. Yes

    3. 30% looks dim to me. But that's all subjective.

    Battery life at 100% wifi with 1 hour phone calls.

    Vis a vis Hot Spot: does it phone home to your carrier to see if hotspot is approved? One 2014 phone, I can't recall if it was Moto X 2 or the Nexus 6, actually checked in with your carrier. I couldn't use it on AT&T.

    FYI, if you have the AT&T unlimited data plan grandfathered n from way back at the original iPhone launch, you simply cannot add hotspot to your account. They don't allow it unless you change your data plan. That's why an 'unlocked' hotspot capabiity is important to me.

    Thanks. So no always-on power save throttle like Samsung has. Darn, my 30% remaining at the end of a long day with my Note 4 is with power save mode on. It throttles the chipset down 30% and adjusts the display as needed. I notice no performance hit with it on, but do notice the extra battery life. I only turn it off if playing emulators like N64 and PSP. I notice it when not off with those since CPU heavy apps.

    BTW, if I extrapolate based on the usage noted above, that does not appear to bode well for screen on time battery life.

    So that would be just over 4 hours of screen on time, with the battery lasting about 14 hours with 2 hours of phone calls and whatever else you did in the first 7 hours of the day.

    4 hours SOT is what I'm hoping for and a 'full day' of me using the device for 4 hours and having it last from 7am to 9pm sounds great to me. Hopefully I see similar results.

    Do you have the brightness slider around 50%? Indoors mostly? I'm usually floating in the 2-2.5 SOT and 1 hour of calls in a normal day. So I guess I'm pretty optimistic with what you posted. And I assume you are still setting up, adding apps ect?

    I am not seeing that with the usage described, those numbers and graph. Wifi is on and no LTE radios. That seems 3.5 hours SOT at best, but only one sample so will not cancel my order with Moto. Well, I will not as long as ships by next week. If stays in "being built" purgatory I will cancel out of spite.

    Comparing battery use with others is so subjective. Objective for me since the Note 4 lasts a very long day with 30% left over at night. The Moto XP must also last an entire day as well. Must admit nothing so far with reviews or user experience suggests that will happen, but holding on until can actually test.

    The problem I might find with this lovely phone which I really want is that I like a bright screen as at present my Xperia Z3 is at about 75% brightness and it has a nice bright display but there is no way I can have a phone and have to have a dim screen or run it at 50% brightness as that is a waste of time for me so the question is what sot will this phone get with the screen nice and bright, my G3 got 3 hours sot which I thought was poor! I want this phone but I just fear the battery life will be poor if I have the screen bright.
