    Ahhh, so that's why it's a bad phone. I see. Forget the fact that it works better than some of the phones that made the list, Verizon is evil, so their phones aren't any good.

    That's more rubbish, just like the crying about updates.
    Just like how OnePlus' invite system sometime keeps their phones off of "best-of" lists.

    I just read it and that is exactly my thoughts about it, everything just works that needs to work when you want it to work, you could nit pick the phone All day, but you cannot say the battery life and the way Motorola optimizes there features into Android are not near flawless.

    But one could nit pick any device. Nothing is perfect. I'm digging the T2 for now and will wait for the next device to catch my eye.

    Does the Doze app work? Does it save battery? Supposedly Doze in Android marshmallow works great to help standby battery life.

    I am concerned that with advanced calling, on this will block phone calls or texts, when the screen is off.

    Doze may be a new feature in Marshmallow, but I doubt that I will enable it.

    I haven't done a side by side test but overnight I'm down to 58 percent and that's from 70 percent.

    You mean overnight with the screen off all night?

    I wouldn't have listed it there either unless they were doing ten or fifteen or so devices. I would list the Moto X Play and Style in the top ten list, but typically niche devices don't make the list (bizzare remakes of a different device, carrier variants of another device, etc).

    My top ten looks something like this: Nexus 6p, Moto XPE, Galaxy Note 5, Nexus 5x, Sony Xperia Z5, Moto X Play, LG G4, , Nexus 6, Galaxy Note 4, HTC M9.

    Where are the V10, A9, Priv, Turbo, etc? Good question, those device should probably mentioned somewhere, but none of them are mainstream consumer devices (yes I know I put some Nexus devices up there - because they're becoming acceptable as mainstream devices, and possibly the only option for secure devices) - they're weird things that are available for weird people - no offense if you're weird. What about the S6? Not as good as the Note 4, sorry. It probably is better than the M9, but being worse than the device you succeed and being handily beaten by your successor all within a matter of months gets you taken off the list. Sorry. Offense intended on that one. S6, you suck /rant

    Hi folks in developer options do you change that? I don't know if it's Nova doing this but sometimes there's a screen stutter

    They picked the A9 even though they say it has "abysmal battery life" while stating just a bit farther down the page that battery life was probably the main criterion to use when picking a phone.

    And that's why articles by committee are never any good.

    I am getting no stutter at all on MXPE. I will keep this in mind if I ever do.

    Actually, I have gone into those developer settings on my 2013 X, but it still lagged/stuttered after the Lollipop upgrade.
