    LITERALLY this phone won't stop lagging, camera keeps stopping, and the most annoying of all: SoundCloud randomly stop playing, goes through my music library and reopens itself when I shut down the app, and kicks me to Google now voice command. What is the deal with this phone??

    And it must be a result of Motorola not being able to provide simple software updates.. Can't wait to get rid of this crap.

    I don't use soundcloud but I haven't experienced any lag or camera problems. How does your phone work in safe mode?

    Wouldn't I then be able to use NOTHING besides the apps preinstalled on the device?

    It's a testing tactic, not a suggestion that you have to stay in safe mode.

    That would help you figure out if the problem might be a rogue app or if it's the phone.

    I can tell you from experience with every Android phone I've ever had (including this one): the issues START once the update comes. This phone from day one was 1000% smooth and perfect, no lagging, no issues, none of the problems you're listing. Once the Marshmallow update came, it introduced occasional lagging and some bluetooth connectivity issues for me. (I tried a System Restore and it didn't really help so it is what it is I guess)

    I'm sorta not complaining though because every single other phone I've had has had its own set of issues... Mostly of the lagging all the damn time variety, so I'll take the occasional issues I've been having with my Moto X Pure over that any day.

    I've only ever had one Android phone (Moto X 2014) that got worse after an update (lollipop). And it was fixed with the next update. If I had your luck with phones I probably would've switched to iPhone by now.

    Trust me I've thought about it every other phone haha, but two things happen.

    1) I google "iPhone problems" and find tons of people with the exact same issues with their iphones (lag, slowdown, connectivity issues, etc) that I have with my Android phones

    2) I remember that I can't stand Apple and their products, so I stick with Android and just complain a lot haha

    Have to agree, Moto x pure ran great for me, I gave it to my mom and she loves it. The phone doesn't suck.

    Marshmallow update on my MXPE did not ruin my phone at all, if anything it runs better. Just disappointed with adoptable storage.
    Also got Marshmallow on my Verizon Galaxy S6 about a month ago and the update definitely improved it tremendously! I was tickled pink!
    So far I have been lucky I guess. Haven't had an update cause problems.
    I did, however, have an iOS update mess up my iPad 3. Sold that thing, never liked it much.

    The only complaint I carry about this phone is the seemingly subpar battery life. And it doesn't seem as well supported as other Moto phones have been in the past, even under Lenovo leadership.

    My S6 got better battery life with a smaller battery, however, it was pretty abysmal until wifi calling was released for the S6. That made the difference. I would have thought the MXP at 3000 mah would be better than this. Having said this tho I do love the device. There are few phones out there with really good battery anyway, just the way it is at present.

    Here's a list of the supposed differences between 6.0 and 6.0.1
    Moto G 3rd Generation : Android 6.0 vs Android 6.0.1 | TechDroider

    Mine came with 6.0 and so far, so good. The camera app quit, but I'm using F5v and that is working just fine.

    At Bat plays, I have some stashed media that plays well, I don't subscribe to any service. The camera gets far more use.

    I'm not happy with a few things, but we'll see what shakes out in the next upgrade. I'm in no rush.

    I love the phone. No problems with it. Lag is a relative term. I've had some phones that I thought were slow but it's rare that I have to wait on my MXP.

    No over heating issues ever, camera is awesome, battery life is awesome, recharging is awesome, screen is awesome.

    It will be hard for me to justify changing phones unless it just craps out on me. Something will have to come along with a new cool feature for me to look to switch. So far I've not seen anything that makes me feel like there's something better I just have to get.

    MXPE is on sale for $299 on the Moto site through 5/9 so that may change your mind.

    A random rant in a forum should not be a reason for you not to buy a phone. I don't believe there has been a single device that you can't find a similar topic about it.
    As most of the other users I haven't been experiencing lag and the camera has stopped a couple of times. I don't use Soundcloud cannot comment on that.
    Battery life is indeed mediocre, but there are LOTS and LOTS of things you can toggle in this phone. There are lots of sensors running by default and if you don't need them you can disable them.

    The phone is great. Moto service is not.

    At $300 it's a no brainer,

    Absolutely true. Remember those of us on these forums are the rare few that don't have anything better to do than sit around and talk about cell phones haha. Most people buy the phone and keep it because it works, or they buy it and return it because it doesn't work. They don't spend their time on forums.
