    I still like my phone well enough, but there are things that frustrate like poor picture quality, decreasing battery life, quirks with notification sounds not always sounding, and other minor annoyances. Google pixel looks interesting. Too bad the Mate 9 is proprietary.

    Are you interested in an unlocked device only, or are you open to carrier locked and branded devices?

    Probably unlocked CMDA. We're with US Cellular and the phone selection is less than boring.

    I'm personally curious about the next Pixel iteration. Most likely (not 100% sure) will be my next Android device. But still attached to my MXPE. Still a great device for me.

    Do you like the Moto Z line?

    The CDMA requirement kills most phones other than Pixel or carrier provided, not too many unlocked devices doing CDMA.

    Pixel would be only choice I guess, don't think the Axon 7 or OnePlus 3T would fit the bill, although those would be my main devices as alternatives at this time.

    I will probably never own another Moto device now that Lenovo owns the name.

    Moto lately has fallen out of my favor. Probably get a Pixel XL next.

    I did replace my MXPE. I got the Pixel. I only did it because I broke the MXPE.
    No regrets. Love the Pixel. Loved the MXPE too.

    My MXPE is a great high quality looking, feeling, and performing phone. I really like the Moto voice feature. If I get another Android phone it would probably be another Moto. Not sure that'll be happening though 😕

    NEXUS phones also support CDMA.

    The camera quality is not an issue for me, I'm not necesarily a photog. Its good enough for my use.
    The intermittant notification sounds are also not an issue, since its connected to my Android Wear device, nearly always and the watch vibrates when receive something.

    I bought a 64GB from B&H Photo, new for $250. $100 less than I paid for my DD 32GB MXPE from Amamzon, in December 2015.
    This is my backup, stay stock phone.
    There is nothing else available that I would want.
    My requirements are Bootloader unlockable / rootable, bloat free and micro SD card.
    I am really liking this phone, but like others, I doubt I will be getting annother Moto/Lenovo device, because of the direction and lack of support from Lenovo.
    I've always preferred Motorola devices, for their stron radios. Afterall, the radio is the most important aspect of a phone.

    I am planning to check out the new Pixels when available but will also see what Moto has to offer. Will most likely go with a Pixel though.

    Note 8. MXP is only a place holder until this fall. Had said I wasn't going to buy another Moto before the MXP, but it was the best cheap phone I was willing to deal with for 10 months.

    I don't see a phone out there that has the features I want other than MXPE. I really love the front facing speakers. I like the size, the screen, camera is ok, it's unlocked and I can root it. So, I bought another one and have it sitting in a box in case the first one dies or the battery gets old. It's not the perfect smartphone but it's the closest I've found for my needs.

    after seeing how capable is my wife's Droid Z Play and w comfortable 2 day battery, I see no reason to look elsewhere. mods are just cherry on top. another reason to stick to Moto is convenience of Active Display. once you get to use it (3+ yrs now) it's really hard to go without.

    My MXPE gets paid off next month, so I'm hoping to pick up a Moto Z Play, unlocked. Probably not right away, but in a few months. My X will enjoy a leisurely retirement with all the other mobiles in my collection.

    i have an X Pure and a Z Play and i prefer the Z for its immortal battery life... If only it had stereo speakers instead of the fingerprint scanner, it would be ideal.

    I went with a Pixel. 128 GB, Black. I lucked into Verizon having one in stock in a Corporate store when I was ready. I was trying to hold off, but my MXPE quit Turbo charging with both the wall charger and the car charger. That was the last straw.

    I liked a lot about the MXPE, but so far the Pixel is better in several ways: Size, battery life (even compared to the MXPE when new), heat, and of course, updates. EDIT: Also USB-C

    I currently own the MXPE and love it - white/bamboo. The only issue I would improve is the battery. I've owned the previous 2 Moto Xs as well, and don't want to spend $600+ on a Pixel/Samsung or LG. I've been researching One+/Honor/Asus and other budget unlocked phones but keep coming back to Moto for the near stock android and overall experience. I'm curious about the update for the Moto Z Play, but I would never use the mods. Has anyone out there had luck with a sub $500 phone that they would recommend? Thanks.

    i have an MXP and a Z Play and i am very happy with the Z. My only grievance is no stereo speakers, although its speaker is quite loud.

    This is a tough question. Mainly because the MotoX Pure is a one off phone. A mid priced phone with a lot of top of the line features. I bought mine to replace a Note 4. Never have missed the Note 4 stylus.

    Actually have been looking around to find another phone so I can give my wife my MotoX Pure and I get a new phone. But there is nothing really on the market right now that I like more than the Moto X Pure. Did look at the Moto G5 but not crazy about the small screen size. Also looked at the Moto Z but why pay soooo much money for a phone that really lives and breathes by the mods you add to it.

    Since I am with Verizon and have been for forever I am unwilling to change carriers so I am stuck with CDMA phones. I want a phone that is unlocked and has a very close to pure Android OS. After reviewing several phones, the Moto Z, Galaxy S8, and finally the Pixel XL if I would replace my Moto X Pure it most likely be with the Pixel XL. Unfortunately it is twice what I would pay for the Moto X Pure but if I buy it from Google I can get it for 24 nice payments without any interest. Only problem with that is do I want to be stuck to the phone for two years like I did when I bought from Verizon.

    What I have finally decided to do for now is not to replace the Moto X Pure but the Note 4 that I handed down to my wife when I got the Moto X Pure. And I am going to do that by buying another Moto X Pure for me and handing down my old one to her.
