    I personally think it's better to do some research before you buy. Threads like these reveal ugly truths that you won't find in the manufacturer's descriptions.
    I totally agree with you there, and you do get some strange replies when all you are doing is research on a phone that you are really interested in, there is nothing better than talking to owners about their experience with the phone so far so you keep on asking as I am still very unsure whether to get this or not, it is the perfect size for my needs but that battery life is hard for me to get past

    fwiw except for the initial notice I have not seen the screen activation notice repeat unless I wave my hand or pick up the phone. I think someone on this thread mentioned that functionality had been removed. I think the action was referred to as "breathing"
    That was me but i edited my post and it does "breath" until you wave your hand and then it stops . Best of both world's in my opion.

    OK I'm going to try that test again without waving my hand or acknowledging the notice to see if I get the "breathing" action.

    OK got it, so now I think I understand the function.

    I miss the restart option when you hit the power button. Sure you can turn it off and restart that way or hold the power button until it does.

    Now I'm getting the ringtone, but no calls are present. No voice mails, no nothing. The device will ring like someone is calling and you can't silence it - it will normally ring about five or six times and stop. It happened twice yesterday and three times already today.

    Ouch, that looks horrible. Does the Moto X Pure allow you to put a wireless receiver inside the back cover like most other phones?

    You can't since the back cover doesn't come off.

    External battery with quick charge 2.0 doesn't work properly. I switched from N6 and miss AMOLED, but MXP has brighter screen, so it's much better outside.
    The problem with quick chargers is different wattage I guess. My Aukey 10400 mAh turns off after few seconds. Same is with Aukery wall charger, it's shows 'turbo charging' every few seconds. However, Anker Power Drive+ works fine in my car.

    What is the rate of "breathing"?

    I own a 2013 Moto X Developer Edition and currently use a Nexus 6. Moto Display on the Moto X and Ambient Display on the Nexus were major considerations for me when deciding on these phones. The ability to get such useful notifications from the AMOLED screen without nuking the battery is awesome so I am most disappointed that Motorola went with an LCD screen this time around. My guess is that the switch to LCD was a cost related decision.

    With that said, I recently picked up a Moto 360 so this concern is less significant now that I primarily view notifications on my wrist.

    If you keep holding the power button down it does a restart.

    I did say "if you use a case".
    The Moto X Pure back doesn't come off.

    A two finger swipe gets you immediately to the quickset buttons on stock Android.

    -It's too big
    -The display isn't AMOLED (which means the Moto Display isn't quite as magical, or battery friendly)
    -It's too big

    Root-> xposed-> gravitybox-> status bar tweaks-> quick setting management-> quick pulldown...
    ...and you swipe down once with one finger

    My only real (big) dislike now besides the fixed battery is all chargers I have tried are "seen" as USB instead of wall chargers, so either you charge fast and hot with the charger out of box, or charge USB sloooow with most other chargers you probably already have. Since there is no way to turn fast charge off, I am stuck at USB slow since will not use the fast charger. That is not good and a bad miss by Motorola. Charging is threshold based and more than obvious they set it too high. And no, the fast charger is not the reason, since does not work that way. Like batteries, charging is a very analog process. Kind of lame IMO to not catch this.

    I have tried 2 AMP chargers that work fine with the power charge hungry iPad Air and other tablets and still seen as USB by Pure. I thought I found a few chargers that work, but was wrong. Still USB charge. This device should be able to (like any other device including the Note 4, 5, Nexus 6 and Moto X 2014) charge normally with a normal 1 AMP charger or higher. This frankly sucks to have a dozen chargers and have one device that only sees a USB charge. Not seen this before- ever with a phone. I have seen USB data cables be picky with Moto devices, but not something as mundane simple as charging.

    Eight percent per hour is the best I have gotten.

    What's to hot ? Is a 100 degrees to hot maybe 102 i dont know. What number do you consider being to hot ?

    You said a normal charger is to slow does that mean you plug it in over night and it still isn't charged ? that would be an issue because thats how 99% of the people charge their phones.

    Carrier check-in for hotspot. :/
    Bummer for those of us on the ole AT&T grandfathered unlimited data plan where you can't even pay extra for hotspot.

    So far my only complaint is about the wood back. A bit more slippery than I thought. Looks awesome but if you don't have moisture on your hands there is no feedback while holding. Maybe it's better for someone with larger hands. Might take advantage of the exhnage and switch back to silicone but not really digging the colors.
