    No, means you can charge from dead to 50 or something quickly.

    Sorry if this is the wrong spot, I'm still new to these forums.

    Any speculation on announcement date? Approximate guess on what the screen size would be on this? Think it'll be loaded with bloatware?
    My story: I have been bearing with my G'Nex for about 2 years now, keep getting refurbs through VZW, but getting tired of that. I was anxiously waiting for the Note 4 because of screen size since I use my phone for about everything. But cell reception on Samsungs is usually equivalent to a fresh turd, so that's when I started thinking about the new Moto X, especially since I like the more vanilla experience of the G'Nex. But would like a larger screen, and the battery worries me a bit. Thus I'm wondering if I should wait for this.

    This article gives a good idea of the size...

    Apparently it just passed through the FCC.

    If everything on the FCC site is true then it would be my next phone, despite the bloatware and the droid sounds. This has potential to be phone of the year based on the specs alone, but with it only being on Verizon, for obvious reasons, that may not happen. Still, I'm just waiting on a press event for the Droids. Last year the Droid phones had their event first then the Moto X had its event and this year its flipped. I wonder why???

    Maybe Motorola didn't want anyone to be underwhelmed? The Droid Turbo specifications are capable of doing this.

    Honestly, I almost wish it would have a 4.6" screen, but that is NEVER going to happen. This phone will have at least a 5.2" screen. They keep getting bigger...
    I just wonder...

    So the 2013 Moto X was a 4.7" screen, made to be usable one - handed, and was their flagship for 2013.

    Maybe the recently released "2014 Moto X" with the 5.2" screen was originally meant to be a successor to the Droid Ultra & Maxx (meaning a 2014 Droid MAXX might be a 2014 Moto X with a big battery - Originally meant to be the Ultra and Maxx).

    And this "Droid Turbo" - with higher flagship specs (1440p + Snap 805) - maybe it was originally meant to be the flagship Moto X? Then the marketing guys got ahold of it and switched it all up?

    Just a theory... given that these phones were undoubtedly on the drawing board last year when the Maxx / Ultra / Moto X were released, it would make sense.

    If this is really a sub 5" Moto X (2013) format with top line specs, I'll be getting one.

    Pretty sure it is going to be 5 if not 5.2. The sub 5 were incorrect calculations.

    I would be extremely happy if this ends up being < 5".

    As of today I don't know of a phone that I would buy when my contract is up next month as I really couldn't care less about the monstrosities currently available.

    Apple nailed it again with the dimensions and styling of the 6. If only we could run Android on Apple hardware...sigh.

    "Earlier leaks indicated the possibility of a 4.6-inch quad-HD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440"

    If this rumor turns out to be true, which I won't think it will, this might be the phone I've been waiting for...and I think I just wet my pants.

    Could it be?...A manufacturer has finally pulled it's head out of its rear end, ignored the groupthink, and figured out that bigger is not better?

    It would many people too. Maybe they will do a Mini (4.7) and a 5.2.

    Totally excited for this phone, heavy user here working in marketing. Looking at Moto X but ...not sure lots wows out there dashed with battery life comments. No one will ever make a truly great phone - bad for new sales!

    I'm pretty much in the same boat. I was initially set on the new Moto X, as I have the first one and it's great. But with the Droid Turbo potentially releasing in October, and still the questionable Nexus 6, I can hold out a bit and see which of the three works best for me. (If the Nexus comes to Verizon).

    I do not know much about the VZW droid line. Any chance of getting it to work on AT&T? If those spec's are even close it looks like its going to be a great phone.

    If it's like most of the newer (past year or so) VZW phones, you can get voice and 3G. Usually you can manually enter the correct APN to HSPA+ and messaging.

    I was looking into trying to take my old VZW G'Nex to AT&T just enough to check coverage, but it's too old.

    I can live with anything from 5 - 6 inches (5.2 would be good), but I don't want to give up the battery in my Maxx.

    i don't think the device will be huge. Maybe around 5"

    The big battery phones from Moto have always been a reasonable size. People that need that battery don't want to look like buffoons carrying around a 6" device.

    The Note series doesn't make people look like buffoons. I do agree the Motorola should stay around 5.1" though since it does include on screen keys usually.

    True. As long as the person holding it is at least 6'-8" and 300lbs.

    A QHD screen would be nice and all, but I'm not sure it's necessary unless they are still able to maintain Maxx level battery life. I'm all for the super specs, but I'd think 1080 is still fine these days since there isn't much that can take advantage of the QHD yet from what I understand. As for the size, I've certainly been against the size creep way back since I had my Blackberry Pearl, but I'm now quite used to the 5" screen on my Maxx and wouldn't mind a 5.2" if they could keep the phone size from increasing too much, perhaps with on screen buttons.
