    Performed a 2nd test with my Aukey 15000 mAh with Quick Charge 2.0. 1st charge from yesterday was using the QC output port with the supplied cable. 2nd test was using the QC output port with a generic micro usb cable (purchased from AT&T about a year ago). Both tests result in the screen showing Turbocharger when plugged in.

    Results of Test 1
    20% to 60% - 20 minutes
    61% to 72% - 10 minutes
    73% to 83% - 10 minutes
    84% to 92% - 10 minutes
    93% to 100% - 20 minutes

    Results of Test 2
    20% to 59% - 20 minutes
    60% to 71% - 10 minutes
    72% to 83% - 10 minutes
    84% to 92% - 10 minutes
    93% to 100% - 20 minutes

    It seems the Aukey does not care what usb cable is used as the charging times were the same.

    If there is any other test someone wants performed please let me know.

    I'm confused I thought you said it didn't charge when it was above 60%. But now you are saying it charges above 60%?
    Maybe a misunderstanding


    Phone above 60% - Anker 10050mah qc2.0 charges, MotoX indicates Turbocharger on display, phone charges to 100%.

    Phone below 60% - Anker 10050mah QC2.0 charger connects, phone shows Turbocharger, then immediately disconnects. Phone will not charge.

    Ok Thanks for clarifying this for me.

    This is the one I have:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...cUvbUpU4758155

    Mine doesn't have quick charge so I am hoping it still charges below 60%

    Very close to my results last night, with a fully charged Aukey 15000, and using the supplied usb cable:

    25 - 60% - 20 minutes
    60 - 84% - 20 minutes
    84 - 98% - 20 minutes
    100% - 6 minutes
    I tried this again last night using the A/C Turbo charger that came with the XPE, and the charging times were identical to what I got from the Aukey, except the A/C charger got to 62% after 20 minutes, and 85% after another 20 minutes (both almost identical to the Aukey). I'm impressed with the Aukey. I hope it does well charging a phone multiple times, and lasts long.

    COMPLETE FAIL. Is this phone too fragile?

    Less than 48 hours ownership... Bent down to tie my shoe, phone falls 24 inches from breast pocket, screen totally obliterated and unresponsive. Phone is bricked. Can't unlock. Can't retrieve data. Can't answer calls or read texts or SILENCE ALARMS!!!

    This fragility is totally unacceptable. I carried a DROID MAXX HD for 2-1/2 years with only a 3M film screen protector. The MAXX HD suffered numerous cringing falls and rebounds off my foot skittering across asphalt and concrete. Never a scratch on that screen.

    I don't see any 3M film screen protectors for the MXPE, only tempered glass. It seems to me that film is superior. Hard tempered glass protectors would seem to transfer shock while plastic film deforms and absorbs shock.

    MOTO CARE SUCKS (so far). I immediately purchased Moto Care online (which advertises retroactive coverage if purchased within thirty days). But the Moto web site did not immediately recognize my purchase. Spoke to three uninformative customer (non-) service representatives (with heavy language barriers).

    The third rep told me my Moto Care would take up to ten days for "delivery". WHAT? There is nothing to ship! Further, the Moto Care purchase FAQ says nothing about "delivery" delays. The rep says "sorry", there's nothing he can do.

    Next day, my Moto Care package magically "appears" on the Moto web site under "My Stuff" and so I click the "Repair" button. I enter all my details and make payment. Now, it's almost been a week and there's no sign of life. I click "Track Repair" and enter my RMA number. Nothing. So, then I attempt to track using my IMEI number. Nothing. Finally, I try it again using my phone number and zip code. Surprise---that one works and I can see I have a repair order, but it's all blanks under "Replacement device, date shipped, etc."

    How many days to get a replacement? Who knows.

    Any other aftermarket sources to replace a cracked screen?

    I dropped mine but had a case on it. There is a huge difference in a 5.7" display and the ones you compare as far as cracking when dropped. A device like the MXPE needs a case or bumper. Gravity loves big displays.

    Totally agree. I dropped my 2014 Moto X onto concrete face down once with just a back cover and it survived unscathed. However just the other day my beloved Pure fell onto hard pavement and fell face down. I had a nice Incipio back cover on it and a tempered glass screen protector. Well the lip on the back cover helped but one of the corners shattered. Much to my relief only the tempered glass shattered - the screen is just fine without a scratch. Dang I feel lucky!

    My feeling is the Pure is a heavier phone than the 2014 X so protection is even more important. I'm so paranoid now I'm back to using my 2014 until a replacement screen cover gets here. Geez I miss my Pure but don't want to take a chance. It's bigger and heavier and accidents happen.

    Dropping a phone really depends on so much. You can drop one phone from high up and be fine but the next it crack entirely. It really isn't a fair comparison since no phone is dropped the same. Example.. Back in the day I dropped my iPhone 4 at least 5+ times with no consequences... My ex gf... First drop from sitting on a chair instant full crack.

    Angle depends a lot and how it falls. Either way these phones aren't built to take screen drops. The new one from Motorola for Verizon is advertised for it... If it cracks then yes I could see some being upset... But this phone isn't advertised that way. The right drop can cause destruction.

    First day, battery life was not the best at all but I was downloading apps and music and transferring files from my old phone. Second day, battery life is much better. Hoping it just keeps getting better from the first day on!

    Same here, been using it for 2 days and battery life keeps getting better. Guess I will get a good estimate after at least a week of use and letting it go through some charge/discharge cycles.

    I have a tempered glass protector on my 2013 Nexus 5 and have dropped the phone (it is in a case, I always use a case). The tempered glass now has a line going through it but the actual screen under it is fine.

    Point understood, yet dozens of no-damage drops and kicks to my MAXX HD compared to one 24-inch total-destruction drop on the MXPE really does equal out the comparison.

    There is a huge difference in a 5.7" display and the ones you compare as far as cracking when dropped. A device like the MXPE needs a case or bumper. Gravity loves big displays.
    I don't perceive 1" to be 'a huge difference' (RAZR MAXX HD has 4.7" display), albeit there is some difference. The MAXX HD incorporated a so very much more effective lip around the display.

    As I said before.. Just depends on how it drops. The right way can easily do that.

    I think it's reasonable to think sacrifices were made to get the price of the phone down to where moto wanted it. Cheaper materials, more fragile. You get what you pay for.

    This was my experience too...hang on for about a week and things will likely settle in nicely. I can get just about 5 hours of SOT now, with pretty solid standby time...and that should improve with Marshmallow.

    I use the battery saver mode and on average get 30% better battery life overall. I created a shortcut and turn it on/off quickly when I want to use it or not.

    I may be missing something really simple here, but can you explain how you "created a shortcut" to me?

    One of the ways is to use nova launcher and gestures to be a shortcut to the battery saver screen.

    I just received a brand new Moto X Style (EU version) and it has that gap even without dropping it. It's not as severe as yours but still I can instert a piece of thin paper between the metal frame and the glass. The part of the metal frame around the headphone jack does seem to be retracted a little and glass is not glued to the metal around there (between the two plastic joints on the top of the device). I guess yours has had the same problem and and impact made the glass and the frame move away even further. Anyone else have that little gap between the frame and the glass in their devices? I am interested if it may progress and get worse in time? Or maybe let dust go under the glass.

    I know this is not a solution and sending it back certainly is, but if I did decide to keep it that way I would probably put a bit of clear silicone in the space.

    Again I am not saying keep it, I am just saying if you do I would do that to make sure no dust got in there.

    I'm curious if it's glued or screwed there and the screws could be loose. Hmmm, have to look for a teardown.
    Here is a tear down video:

    I would take a picture of it and tell them that it was defective when you got it and you want another one.

    I'm having similar experiences...

    Almost a week in and battery life is getting better daily. This is typical but not too this extent for me.

    Take my phone off charge at 5am and leave work at 5pm. My G3 would be down to 25% and similar results with my X pure.

    Today leaving work (same usage) my X was still at 65%. Really happy!

    Anyways getting it repair and im changin my scheme up from blue accent with deep sea blue to red accent with deep sea blue, the phone is white and silver.
    How high was the drop and where did it land?
