    Here are several angles. While it's a cheap bumper for sure, it gets the job done until you can find a better one. My biggest complaint would be that the buttons are recessed and a little trickier to activate. I also included a pic from the OG X of the screen in the bright sun. It doesn't do it much justice as the screen was actually much more visible in reality.
    No questions about the phone, just wondering who the babe in the Princess Leia bikini is!

    Does your wife know you posted this? My wife would kill me in my sleep. Only partially joking.

    Added: Is that the bumper that came with it? I thought the bumper had covered buttons? I like the bumper you show.

    First off, the excitement is it's a new phone and if you have a new phone on order you get excited, its what you do.

    The MXPE has SD card support, removable batteries are a dying breed, and which OEM does updates better than moto?
    Right now the Note 4 comes closest but it will soon be gone. It is my frustration talking. I don't want to throw a wet blanket on an exciting purchase. I want to find reasons to buy another Moto!

    Sorry I came on too strong.

    I can tell you I waited a week after pre orders to decide to go this route. I was strongly considering the oneplus 2 but luckily they've been so slow I've had time to consider all my options. I didn't want to give up NFC with the oneplus and when reviews came in and the battery was under performing I moved on.

    I would have wished with a phone this size for a larger battery (my n5 is terrible so it's very important to me) and I'm a little disappointing to buy a phone at the end(ish) of 2015 that doesn't have usb type c or more importantly a fingerprint sensor.

    So all that being said I'm not sure what to the perfect phone really is and I refuse to go back anywhere near touchwiz anytime soon so this seemed like the best option. Now if only it will ship...

    How is its single strength, or its RF performance, in fringe areas? At home, my Moto E 2015 gives better performance than anything else I've used, and I expect the same of my Moto G 2015 2G RAM/16G storage I've ordered.

    I called Moto today, since mine was originally supposed to arrive yesterday. Apparently the royal blue back is popular and they're waiting for parts. That's why mine is still being built. The rep told me I'll get it either on 9/21 or 9/23.

    I'll post a user review once I get my device.

    The bumper has cut-outs for the buttons. The good part is that it doesn't add any real bulk to the phone at all, IMO. Speaking of buttons: They are very solid; no rattling as reported on the Play.

    Wi-Fi works even without a SIM installed. That allows you to set the phone up prior to having cell service.

    That's how I set up my 2013 Moto X. My previous device took a micro SIM. I set up the 2013 Moto X using WiFi and then picked up a nano SIM from my carrier. Now I'll just need to swap the SIM without a trip to the carrier store.

    How is the headset volume (no earbuds, just holding the phone up to your ear)? On my Nexus 5 it's horrendously low. Have to use speaker phone if there is any background noise going on while on a call.

    Could you please comment more about the T Mobile Band 12 issue. This phone is being promoted as fully compatible with all US networks but if it doesn't have VoLTE then it isn't fully compatible with T Mobile's Band 12. Motorola is being very coy about this. It is advertised as having Band 12 but other's, including you say it doesn't have VoLTE which means that in areas where T Mobile only has Band 12 LTE and no 2G and 3G, the phone can't make calls. So what is the deal? What is the story about this alleged software update. I can assume it isn't certified to work on T Mobile.

    I had a NIGHTMARE trying to activate my Pure on Verizon. Four days of contacting tech support at verizon and Motorola. Everybody trying to figure something out and finally saying no, they can't do it. The VZW support team on twitter told me to go into a corporate store and try. Luckily the guy that helped me knew exactly what to do and got it activated. Today I got a call back from Verizon tech support telling me that they will be able to activate my phone...sometime around September 18th...

    What is the Volt/Amp/Wattage of the included TurboPower 25 charger? Seems that this charger is only available packaged with the Pure so far.

    Thank you, I have a few questions:
    • Put the phone into airplane mode, enable GPS, and reboot. After reboot, are you able to get a GPS fix while in airplane mode? (I've had a number of phones that can't get a GPS lock without assistance from a cell network :/)
    • Does it support any of the new Camera API 2.0 functionality?
    • Does the Play store let you install Google Camera? If so, are both the Panorama and Photo Sphere options available (and do they work well?).
    • Does it support Bluetooth Classic devices? (pre-Bluetooth 4.x/Low Energy (not listed in official specs))
    • Does it have a gyroscope? (not listed in official specs)
    • Does it have a barometer? (not listed in official specs)
    • Can the bootloader be unlocked?
    • How do the speakers compare in loudness and quality with something like the HTC One M8/9?

    I'm not a fan. It feels cheap and isn't snug to the phone. Took it off almost immediately.
    I have to respectfully disagree with Russell on this one. I like the bumper and will use it when I need the extra grip (via the "lip" it provides) and protection. Sure, it's cheap -- heck, it's free -- but I think it feels high enough quality. And, while it is easy to put on and take off, it feels plenty snug and secure to me.

    has anyone gotten the Walnut back?
    if so, how does it feel in the hand...does it have a little texture/grip to it or is it super slick? thanks
    I have the Walnut back. It feels identical to the 2014 X's Walnut back. While it is a smooth surface with no real texture, it has sufficient "tack" (in my opinion) for acceptable grip. I would imagine that it could get fairly slick if you tried to handle it with wet hands. The included bumper case is perfect (also in my opinion) for those times when you need an extra lip to grip onto.

    This is obviously subjective by nature but popular opinion (everyone I've seen except DC) says the bumper is cheap and you'll never use it. I know personally anything that cheap looking will never find it's way onto my brand new shiny phone. This is just an observation since Motorola is putting extra care and attention to the build of my phone apparently so it's still in China.

    No disrespect meant and hopefully everyone finds something that works for them in the end.
