    Lenovo removed the "breathing" notification feature present on all previous Moto's that had amoled displays.
    And that is one reason I got it LOL. I accidentally move my hand over the front to make it come on too much as it is. I don't need something breathing at me

    If you're coming from a previous moto phone it's a bit of a letdown initially, but the waive your hand feature really works well and largely negates the need (in my opinion) for the breathing. It still blinks on and off anytime a new notification from any app comes in, so if you keep your phone close or handy all the time, it's really not all that different than before. If you like to set your phone down and keep it further away, then the lack of breathing is more problematic, but then that was never as good as an LED light regardless. My only issue at this point is really on principle. It seems like it would be pretty easy to make this a customizable feature, allowing the user to choose how many times or how long the notifications breathe for. The system itself in my opinion is still the best of any manufacturer. It functions flawlessly and I cannot picture using a phone without it (have had ever moto flagship since the Maxx as a result), or until the next big thing comes along (whatever that is).

    This has been the case since the Moto X in 2013. Do you keep your Moto Z out of reach?

    no, usually in hand/pocket or within arms reach but turning the damn thing on constantly to see if i missed an email is annoying. I hate hearing phones ring so its on vibrate 100% of the time. The flash notify app helps but i have to be looking at it or in its direction. Its amazing to me that in 2016 this phone doesnt have led notifications.

    It's amazing to me that someone would buy this phone if that feature is important to you and they haven't had it for three years.

    I like to glance at my phone if it's across the room. Saves me the trouble of walking over to it. Just a slight inconvenience, but an inconvenient just the same.

    So this is strange but I keep losing the google keyboard in the all apps section. Its still listed in Settings>apps. But the icon for it is gone.

    Happened last week and at that time I did not have a second keyboard app installed. Had to factory reset to get it back, and that is a PAIN. So I installed Swiftkey, which I like better anyways.

    Anyone else have this happen? Maybe I am missing a setting somewhere that hides it? Not really sure. Any advice is appreciated.


    I figured it out. I had unchecked for it show as an icon.

    I dont like the placement of the fingerprint sensor. My daughter presses it all the time. If I was designing it I would make it a bit wider instead of long.

    I don't understand your last sentence, it is square.

    I'm confused, you say flash notify requires you to look at your phone to notice the notification. How does an LED solve that problem???

    It's a keyboard, so I think you're expected to access it through Settings instead of an app icon. But since the demand is there they gave the option to add it like a typical app.

    You do not have to turn the phone on, just wave your hand over it.

    Low notification volume and rising volume ringtones Any fix for this??

    No fix yet. Many are trying 3rd party apps for louder notifications and getting rid of the escalating ring.

    Motorola made a post this morning in the Owners forum that a fix for the low notification volumes is being worked on and on the way soon.

    Can't disable fingerprint scanner vibration unless you put the phone in battery saver mode. Should be a toggle for it.

    Hey all - is it normal for my battery to seemingly drain really fast from 100 to 95 and then slower after that?

    It can be. The way the phone charges if you unplug it, it may not actually be at 100%. My understanding is that's why that happens.
