Got this phone in Feb 2015 and by March of 2016, the phone's speaker blew out and I had to use a headset to be able to take calls and hear them. The battery life is also pretty abysmal. The camera leaves a lot to be desired. Feels nice in the hand and the user experience is pretty good but I definitely cannot recommend it as there are way better options in this price range.
It's 2017 and it's a great phone still. My only issue with it is a small storage space - 16 Gb.
rumors says that AT&T and VERIZON versions are not gonna have android marshmallow update................and that sucks!!!!
I am using moto x 2 since Oct 14.This is the 3rd time home button has stopped working.I got it repaired just 2 months back for the 2nd time.Repair agency does not give any warranty.This appears to be inherent problem.
Also it gets very hot for no apparent reason.

SD801 gets too Hot, 07 Jun 2017Like most flagship Android smartphones, the back gets too warm to hold. This is very unpleasan... moreSoC non GPU will be coller than with gpu, try galaxy y.
Motorola so far the coolest along smartphone with GPU
mr. wildern, 02 Jun 2017battery is draining at much faster rate now, I've been using this phone since 1.5yrs . even t... moreyes, in my case I'm facing the same problem, and sometimes when the battery is near to 15%, it simply turn off and take a while to turn on again. I think that replace the battery can be a solution.
Like most flagship Android smartphones, the back gets too warm to hold. This is very unpleasant and spoils an otherwise great phone.
The SD801 was manufactured on the 28nm process, and running at 2.5GHz is simply too fast to keep things cool. If smartphone makers hadn't been so obsessed with speed they could have run the SD801 at 2GHz and turned down the voltage, producing a cool running phone and one that you could hold comfortably without severe discomfort. The battery life would also have improved.
Slow and cool running A7 cores are so much better.
battery is draining at much faster rate now, I've been using this phone since 1.5yrs .
even though I have turned most of the Moto functions (actions, display, voice) off then too it's not helping.
is someone else also facing such kind of probs?
Sometimes my phone shuts down after 10% remaining battery and the phone is fully dead .Is there any fault in battery or something else
As amazing as it can get. Quick capture feature has achieved in capturing so many beautiful moments. My photography skills are highly appreciated everywhere because of this phone.
Sturdy body and Gorilla Glass saved the phone from another mishap. No complains with processor, battery for past 3 years.
I wish I didn't had to use the mobile cover. The smooth sleek metallic side is too much of a luxury for me and I had to protect it.
Also, I wish Google support Moto X2 and allow upgrade to marshmallow or nougat.
Amazing phone as many have mentioned. It does not lag or slow down anytime, as its in Market for quite some time the price have reduced and its a worthy phone to spend your money considering the hardware...the only thing we need to be concerned is the need for a good screen protector to avoid damage as the display is quite brittle and prone for cracks from fall. Having a good mobile protector and a screen protection in place you will really love this thing for a long time. The price have not reduced for a long long time and it speaks what it is.
I use this phone for about 1 year right now and this phone really rocks no lags at all and the camera is good if you are skillful in photography so for my experience this phone really worth for your money, and if this phone has a micro S.D card this would be perfect for other person.
What a fantastic phone!
We've got 3 of them, been using them for 2 years, and they're totally reliable.
No reboots, no crashes, nothing. Focussing the camera is a bit annoying, though.
Wanted to replace one with a Moto Z, but I had to send that to the service contractor,
was broken after 4 days of use. X2 seems to be built to higher quality standards.
So, I'm back on the X2 and don't miss ANYTHING. Really! Still worth buying.
While this phone may be water resistant, it is certainly fragile in other departments. I have never broken a phone in my life and I've broken 2 of these...disappointing. Despite the lack of micro SD card slot and the fragility of this phone, I still love it and want another; too bad it's still too pricey for such an old phone!
