    I'm loving just about everything about the phone except for the text/font in certain areas. Take, for example, the Facebook app - some of the font is made up of letters outlined in black which are very difficult to see (see photo below, where it says "Sponsored," "oneplus.net." "615 likes 72 comments"), while the other text is just solid black (which is fine to me). I noticed that this text is also what is used for app headings and throughout the phone in general. Is there anyway to change this? Does anyone else find this text difficult to read?

    I just checked FB to see. Mine doesn't appear that way. Are you running the latest FB update?

    I think we need to lobby Moto to add the LED notification as a settings option in a future update. The current system only is a profound battery waster compared to an LED. If people want to continue using it as is, cool, but allow the LED option for those that want it. Folks at XDA that have rooted have enabled the center white LED for notifications, so the function does exist.

    Rooting though is debatable if voids warranty or not (depends on who at Moto you speak to) and there is some risk in the process. Much simpler just for Moto to enable and add the script in the firmware.

    The Nexus 6 is the same way. It has an LED, but can only be accessed via root.

    I tried turning off Moto Display and installing light flow. No luck.

    Which is kind of "okay" for the N6 (in comparison to LCD), since the oled display activates specific pixel areas instead of the entire LCD display powering dark gray to all but a small area of notifications. Motorola needs to correct this to save way unnecessary battery life use with LCD notification. Kind of nuts really IMO to not already have done this.

    Yes, it is updated Facebook isn't the only app that does this. The standard android text message program shows the dates of each text in the same text I mentioned before. Other apps have this text as well.

    If yours doesn't do this there must be a way to change it?!?

    Did you install a theme or new font package or anything like that, or is it all original?

    I did the same as you. Then couldn't remember where to go to change it back. I kept looking for something to do with "font". Didn't figure it would be in Accessibility. Thanks again! That's why I love these forums in AC.

    The display gets significantly dim if you aren't looking at it straight on. The effect seems worse than my 13 X with AMOLED and my wife's iPhone 6.

    The shiny silver frame is slippery I would have liked a nice matte, brushed finish instead, something a little less slick.

    I'm not in love with the camera (Could change)

    Not loving the battery life either, but I'll review it positively because it's a great phone! I'm happy with it. Much to love. Much.

    Try Camera FV-5. Hopefully, Motorola will come out with something that will extend battery life a little more.

    I don't like how you only have large and small font no medium like the N6.

    My Google play music stream to a bluetooth speaker has cut out several times due to the activation of that Hello Moto assist app. It's like it's responding to lyrics in the song being played.

    That bothered me too, on my turbo ya only see the time or notifications not the whole screen. I sent mine back as well not happy at all with battery life, maybe jumped the gun but I kinda knew after using the turbo for almost a year that I wouldn't be happy with the smaller battery on the X Pure.

    I'm in Chicago, and it only took 2 days to receive it. They ship FedEx International, and you can follow it via the tracking number.

    I know, but it took forever for the device to be built. It was just delivered though

    I suggest reading through the AC feature The Five Things...Moto X before you get started. And make sure you download the Migrate app on your old phone before you transfer apps, etc.
