    Good Afternoon:

    My contract is up and I am trying to decided whether to wait for the newest Moto X Pure or purchase the current edition. I am currently using a iPhone 6 and have had Android devices in the past so I am somewhat familiar with the OS. I am bored with apple and looking for the pure android experience. With that in mind I will also entertain thoughts on the Nexus 6P

    Any forecasters out there have some helpful thoughts?

    Thanks in advance.

    I guess it depends on how long you want to wait. The new Moto X probably won't be out until fall, since it tends to be released in the fall during September.

    For the price, I'm not sure that you can do better than the pure. Do it.

    Love mine and feel it is very capable still. If you don't need the very latest tech then go with the current model and save some cash. IMO there is just not that much left to be put in a phone that hasn't been done already. The current Pure is a solid performer and can be had for a decent price these days. Then in a year upgrade to the next gen and do it inexpensively yet again if you wish. I'm always enticed by the new shiny new tech but the newness factor wears off rather quickly. I've decided to personally slow down and use some restraint and best of all save money. And as mentioned it won't be out for many months yet anyway.

    Pretty much what everyone else is saying. For the right price, say $299/$349 for 16gb/32gb, it is a worthy buy. It is plenty fast and everything on it just works. There will be a new one early fall, but it will cost more.

    I bought mine in October but I still don't see anything comparable in regard to price, quality, and performance as a whole. There are a couple that interest me like the LG V10 but that's still more money. I'd still buy the MXPE right now.

    I'd get the 6P as it is a top performer (camera, battery life to name a couple). I have the MPXPE but I'm kicking myself for not spending the extra $100 for the 6P. Yes I have buyer's remorse but also must say the MXPE is not a failure by any stretch.

    I actually sold my 32gb day1 Nexus 6P and just bought an MXPE. My battery life is horrendous but overall I'm happier with this phone

    This is a fantastic view and a situation I currently find myself battling.

    My wife cracked her screen on her second gen Moto X, and I was thinking of giving her my second gen Moto X and then upgrading to the Moto X Pure Edition. Is it worth it and or should I just wait for the Moto X 2016? Its getting close to when Moto releases new phones. Thanks!

    The release of the fourth gen Moto x is still nearly a half year away. If you can hold out that long, you're set.
    Otherwise, the MXPE is still a very good phone. And if I'm not mistaken the price was recently reduced.

    It's an upgrade from the 2014 and the price is right. Do it.

    I would still buy one today. Either that or the LG V10, though that's more expensive

    I think you should buy the MXPE! I bought mine 2 months ago (an upgrade from the HTC One M9), and haven't looked back. The price is definitely right, and you can nab some great deals.

    In December I struggled choosing between the Nexus 6p and the Moto X PE and ultimately went with the MXPE. If I needed a new phone today those phones would still be my top two and I'd probably still go with the Moto.

    The 6p is on sale right now but I love my XPE and would buy it again.
    The screen and speakers are great, love the camera, and I have the bamboo back and i love the way it looks.
    You'd probably get better battery life w the 6p, but that said, I've never had it run out of juice before I got home.
    I think it's a really good deal. I'm not planning on upgrading phones for a long time.

    Edit- I think the XPE might be on sale right now too. I'd buy it.

    How do you like the speakers when compared with the m9?

    I had issues with the M9 and frequent overheating, but the best part of the phone was the BoomSound speakers! HTC takes the win on sound quality and crispness. I did away with my headphones and earbuds for nearly a year, LOL! However, the MXPE has been great on sound. I discovered that I was spoiled with dual front facing speakers, and I loved that the MXPE has this attribute. Two months in, and I have experienced strong sound and no issues with cracking when blaring Spotify or watching movies. Couldn't be more satisfied.

    Thanks for all the great advise. I did buy the new Moto X PE - white with bamboo back. Love it and like most, couldn't be more satisfied.

    Yeah there's always some new phone due out. If you wait for that perfect phone, you'll always be waiting for it.

    I keep debating over the MXPE and the 6P. I am looking for a phone I can hang onto for a couple of years. I am currently using the Lumia 1520, which I have owned for over 2 years now. Ready to go to Android.

    Those are the two I had at the top of my list. I went with the MXPE for the lower cost and Moto enhancements. The new Google Live Cases are an interesting alternative to the MotoMaker options if you like customizing. The (relatively) quick Android updates are another consideration for long-term ownership.
