    The Z Force does not record video while plugged in, even though the camera UI says it's recording.

    This with the stock camera, which randomly stopped, and adoptable storage. The battery was charged over 12% during the first video.
    I figured the camera was stopping due too battery and plugged it in again, which caused another video to not be saved.
    All videos recorded while not plugged in were saved.

    Plugged into a computer or just charger? If you are plugged into the computer, this could make complete sense, if you are not plugged in as a media device and only mass storage it may be the reason, If just charger, then that is a mystery

    Here's another weird one!

    The phone will not charge from a Samsung charger with a Type-c Cable!
    I thought it was just their fast charger but it doesn't work with their regular charger either.

    *My wife is a Samsung fan and after some years of new hones and replacements the chargers are everywhere. Plus the quick charger was pretty good.

    I changed the title because I'm finding lots of oddness and don't want to keep making threads.

    Today's oddness: I kept getting false hits on my launch phrase so I changed it. I could not get Moto Voice to except the "OK Moto Z" launch phrase.
    Using it it would launch google search and enter the entire phrase in the search bar ex: "OK Moto Z set timer for 30 minutes".
    Changing to "OK Google Now" works mostly. Sometimes just "OK Google" works, Sometimes neither works.

    This isn't correct, I'm using the fast charger that came with with note 5 along with a USB type C cable from Amazon and it works fine. It even detects it as a turbo charger

    I think more syllables is the key. I'm currently using "OK Alexander".

    Which cable did you order? This is the one I bought: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0198...cUvbUpU5299946
    It must come down to the cable.

    This used to happen with the last few Moto phones when you create the launch phrase in a room where there's some white noise in the background.

    You have to be somewhere completely silent, or likely more silent than the room you were in.

    Just tried our Samsung fast charger with this exact cable and it charges the phone. (The Sammy charger also charges the wireless battery pack using the Samsung wireless charger, although with a micro USB cable used, obviously.)

    Since I redid the phrase it's not had one false positive. Originally it took 3 tries to find an echo free room.

    I don't know then. I've tried two fast chargers and a regular Samsung charger and none work. Every other charger works with the cable.

    It doesn't fast charge it, just charges it. To avoid any confusion.

    With the ones I linked above, it fast charges using the Samsung charger.
