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

    It's a plastic phone, no doubt about it. There's no uncomfortable gaps that feel bad, but it flexes a bit when pressure is added. It feels more like a Nexus 6, and less like the 2014 X.

    Camera is about all I want to know about. I loved the Moto X camera aside. How does it compare to the S6, Note 5, G4 etc...?

    We already know the Moto X is an awesome device. The camera is the deal breaker for me on almost all flagship devices these days.

    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.
    I'd say it's darker, but the colors are nice and text is sharp. It's different, but I wouldn't call it worse just yet.

    If it was not already commented on, what is the battery life like? Specifically with bluetooth and GPS (w/ high accuracy) both on.

    I'm going to be directly comparing all of the current heavyweights to the Moto X Pure, separately so there no room for distraction. Look for that in the coming week.

    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'm not a fan. It feels cheap and isn't snug to the phone. Took it off almost immediately.

    That picture looks horrible. I guess lack of IOS makes a difference.

    Serious question: can you give it to a female runner (or spindly built man) for a test run, and tell me how they carried it? Don't imagine it would fit at all into women's running shorts/skirts pockets, or an arm sleeve if you have normal sized arms? (I guess a man with larger arms may not have this problem...)

    Also, can you upload some action shots (moving objects)?

    Lastly, is the screen noticeably worse than OLED?

    Thanks!

    Shooting into a bright back-lit source doesn't help. One pic does not tell a complete story. There's a thread with a bunch of pics included if you haven't already taken a look through it.

    Post pictures taken with your Moto X Pure Edition (Moto X Style) here!

    Does it have double tap to wake and sleep?

    How much available storage space is there on the 16GB? I'm figuring with Marshmallow having much improved SD card integration that 16GB should be sufficient to go with my 64GB SD card.

    Does it have that funky pink blotch effect the Turbo was so good at? Or is the screen color pure over the entire area when looking at largely single toned images such as a Kindle reading page?

    Any speaker distortion or crackling when listening to notification tones.. And do you see any stutters or lag?

    Russell, can you explain further on your comment that it's a plastic phone? I thought it had a metal frame (Moto X)....or were you referring to the 1+ phone?

    Also, what is your favorite OLED phone/screen? Thx!

    Front facing flash is more useful than I originally imagined.

    I'm using a Nexus 6 at the moment and am wondering which one you would keep as your daily driver? Unlike most comments I see, I love how big it is and also the AMOLED screen.

    Why worry about the stock photo app? There are plenty of android photo apps in the play store that are usually better than the original app. Have you tried any like Better Camera or others?

    Hi Russel, how's Moto Display working on the phone, in terms of notifications, with the non-AMOLED panel? What kind of effect does it have on the battery life?

    With the SD card slot, do I need to pay more $ for the 32 or 64gb version?
    You won't be able to store apps on the card the way you can on the Internal memory. What you can store is limited, and not the app APK. Rumors are that Marshmallow 6.0 will allow you to store apps on both external and internal. But we ain't there yet. I suggest at least 32GB internal memory. At the price, you can't beat it.

    I don't think there's a way to measure that. But in a totally dark room, you can see the rest of the screen does light up just a tiny amount when you're looking at the active notifications. So the whole screen is really lighting up for them.

    I couldn't disagree more. The sides are real metal, the front is all glass except for the slightly raised metal speaker grills (which help protect the screen on flat surfaces if you put it face down) and the back has a nice non-slip rubbery feel that is solid and robust. There is nothing "plasticky" to this phone at all, IMHO.
