    Just sold my 6p, was never really in love with it.
    I can get a Note 5 for $400 or a new 32gb Pure it $400, or buy third party slightly used Pure for $330 with moto care.

    Is the Pure still a good buy or since the prices are almost identical go get the Note 5?

    Get the Moto X. Although if you ask this question in the Note 5 forum...you are likely to get a different answer.

    It's really a question of personal preference. If you prefer stock Android, get the Moto X. If you're okay with touchwiz, the note 5 may be for you.

    Agreed,
    But does the Note 5 more robust camera interface & low light ability cause any regrets?
    Additionally, if purchasing the x, would you suggest buying new from Amazon for the $399 for 30 day warranty with 1 yr manufacturer or 3rd party for $330 with moto care until 2017?

    Perhaps you should check the complaints section on the Motorola site. You'll likely get your answer. I, for one, will not go back to Motorola products. I had Moto phones before and currently an owner of the Pure Ed. and more than likely will not come back to it. Customer Service sucks and that's an understatement. You know that old saying: you get what you pay for. Good luck.

    I like mine a lot, having had it for around 3 months. Does what I need and does it well. No complaints. Never needed moto care or their customer service so can't speak to that. Never needed cs on any device in 20 some odd years of mobile usage tho so no ideas on that experience. My MXP is well built and very solid. Glad to have it.

    I have no desire to replace mine. Perfectly happy with it. Note 5 is a different phone targeted for a different purpose, which is why it has a stylus. Personally, I'll never go back to Samsung and their high prices after owning 3 in a row prior to the Moto.

    Moto x Pure is a great device. Big screen, front facing speakers, stock android. Camera is great in normal lighting, but is a poor low light performer, and doesn't support 1080p at 60 fps like the note 5. If you won't use the S pen and don't take indoor pics, then there's no reason not to go with the Pure

    I jumped on the $299 deal about a month ago. I almost feel like that was too cheap for this beast. At that price or even $350 (which is the current sale price i believe) the X is a no brainer.

    I've had mine for six months and it's still surprisingly fast. The battery life has been okay - not great - but that's my only real complaint.

    If I had to buy a new phone today and the XPE was on sale for $299, I would not hesitate to buy one. Otherwise, I'd probably get a Moto G and wait for the next version of the X.

    I currently own the Moto X Pure 2014 and the Pure 2015. I keep the 2014 X around for a backup. The 2015 X is my daily driver though. My fiance and I have had Motos since the first X in 2013 and have had zero problems with them.

    My customer service experience has been good on one warranty return and one screen replacement. They were courteous and the turn around time was acceptable.

    As for the phone itself, nothing has tempted me enough to want to leave my Pure. Sure there are phones with better cameras or longer battery life but I swear by the X line. Even under Lenovos hand, I feel the X is still the phone to get. Plus you can pick one up new fairly cheap.

    I liked the Pure but the battery was only ok. I was getting 3 hours of SOT on cellular.

    Love mine. I have no desire to replace it at the moment. I get decent battery life, the speakers are terrific, the camera is a big improvement over my 2014 Moto X (otherwise a terrific phone), and it gets great reception. It's the upper limit in size of what's best for me, but I adjusted to that quickly. Plus it has the Moto features I can't imagine doing without. So yes - totally worth it.

    I would recommend it! I love using the phones speakers, they are loud enough for practically any situation. My friends are always impressed about how loud it can get while still sounding good!

    Other than that the screen is quite good and it charges suuuuper fast with the charger it comes with (faster than QC 2.0).

    My main complaint is the battery. Granted, where I work has terrible signal so my number 1 battery user is always cell signal, but I still only get only around an hour and a half of SOT.

    Overall I would recommend it! I love the feel of the back of it too.

    I ended up buying a Jonathan Adler from Motorola for $349 strictly as a test drive for the 14 day return policy and for the first three days my biggest complaint is battery life being horrible.
    Apart from that and the camera poor performance in low light, it's a good phone.

    Yes I saw that deal after I posted my question. I kind of agree but it's a great deal 349 4 32 gigabyte

    I actually convince someone to sell it to me for 275 that was originally asking for like 350 but then I realized I could get a new one for 350

    It'll be $350 plus tax though.

    And you'll probably want to buy a case.

    I received my MXPE 32g one week ago today -- waited for Amazon to put it on sale for $349.99, which they do periodically, then went into Best Buy and ordered one for that amount based on the Price Match, and applied a BB gift card that still had $95 credit balance, so I got it for a total cost of $255 plus tax. When it was delivered to the store, I went in to pick it up and the Best Buy mobile phone sales person promptly transferred the contacts, text messages, photos, songs, etc. over from my old Moto X (2013). The apps took another 15-20 minutes to finish transferring, and then a little later I installed the already waiting upgrade to Marshmallow. The whole process went far more smoothly than I had anticipated, and after a week of use I'm thoroughly delighted with the MXPE. As others have commented, it takes a day or two to adjust to the larger size, but beyond that I've found the MXPE to be a terrific device, and I would recommend it without qualification.
