    Hi,

    Why has the price for the Moto X Style gone up in the UK?? It was predicted to be £359, but now you can pre-order the Moto X Style off the Motorola store (32 GB, no additional things/covers) for £399!! This is just too much as it contradicts all the predictions, and it isn't such a good-value-for-money phone. It also doesn't match up with the exchange rate between pounds and dollars, as the phone costs $399. If the £399 was to be accurately converted to dollars, it would cost over $600. I have emailed the Motorola support team and I am waiting for a reply.

    Has anyone got any theories/ideas why this has happened. It has really ruined the idea that the phone was at an affordable price, as it now, frankly, isn't.

    I'd like to hear or see a size comparison to the last Moto x, nexus 6, and droid turbo.

    Moto X is pretty much in between.

    Just to clarify, these were predictions, correct?

    Okay weird question, but I always have my polarized sunglasses on and some screens tend to blackout with them on. Have you viewed the screen with polarized lenses at all? I know on my DROID MAXX I can see fine but my computer monitor at work, not so much. Thanks!

    How are the viewing angles? Is the accent flush with the rest of the back or is it slightly raised? Are the speaker grills raised? is there a bit of plastic where the front glass meets the metal frame?

    Hi Matt, I have both the Moto X Pure and Polarized Sunglasses and there are no issues, no blackout happens.

    I had the same concern as you. I just got my Moto X yesterday and have used it some with polarized sunglasses and while it does get darker, it doesn't completely blackout until you go to the extreme left/right. For me it's not a big deal and hasn't hindered using it.

    I've had Nexus phones since the Galaxy Nexus, except N6 because of size and price. I've been happy with all of them despite their limitations. Mainly like the de-bloated software, timely updates, and carrier freedom. I'll be skipping the Nexus 5 2015 because of the underwhelming spec improvement compared to the 2013 version, plus the rumored price point of $399. My question; Does the XPE seem like a worthy Nexus replacement? Also, have you noticed better signal strength compared to your daily driver? This is a bit important as I'm in marginal areas and I feel my N5 2013 does not perform as well as my wife's G4.

    Don't think anyone's asked about GPS. How quick is it to lock and how accurate?

    I played some Ingress this morning. GPS worked great.

    How does the included bumper case feel ? Does it offer sufficient protection and grip for a phone with smooth, wood back ? would you care to post a few pictures with this case ?

    Thank you!

    I posted in a separate thread that I have zero problem seeing the screen when wearing polarized sunglasses.

    Viewing angles drop off noticeably but I personally am okay with that. I'm not in the habit of wanting someone 85 degrees to my side to necessarily browse my screen.

    It's not grippy because it's clear plastic. It does a nice job of not hiding the beautiful aesthetics of the phone and provides a nice lip to grab onto.

    Wifi calling is a feature that tmobile installs only on phones that they sell. They upload their software onto the phone.

    How does the screen look in the sunlight?
    It cranks up to quite a bright level. I've used it in direct sunlight on a very clear day (10 minute ago was most recent) and I can see the screen very, very easily. MUCH better than the previous two gens' screens.

    I took mine on a road trip this past weekend. GPS was fast and accurate for me at all times.

    The screen is not noticeably worse than OLED. I'm coming from a Galaxy S6 edge, and the screen doesn't feel like a downgrade.
    Really? I think the screen is a significant step back from that of the S6 Edge+. I had the two of them side-by-side with the same settings and was not very impressed with the Pure screen. Interesting.

    What's your opinion on how "premium" it feels in hand? Does the metal compare to other low cost flagships? (Particularly the OnePlus 2?)
