I really like this phone. The size is nice and the speed is great. BUT it OVERHEATS! I use the Google Map feature and a game called Ingress which operates via the Google Map feature and while on these two apps, the phone gets burning hot. I have tried every "fix" Motorola has suggested and nothing has worked. This is a beautiful phone -- I built it in the Motorola store, customizing it with my name and the back is purple, etc. I really don't feel like I should have to replace it after having it only a few short months, but I'm afraid of using it away from my car's air conditioning to help cool it down. All of the other features are good. Hangouts, another Google app, works great at first. After a couple of months, even with the cache cleared and history deleted, it is so slow. I will write something and it won't show up in the hangout for 5-30 minutes.
I've had my Moto X 2014 (unlocked) for about 2 years now. Absolutely love the camera quality, though I almost never use the flash. The HDR just words fantastically. I can feel my battery going bad though. At right around 20%, if I try to run the camera or a resource-intensive app, the phone simply shuts down almost immediately. This especially is terrible after you've been recording a video for example since the video will not be saved and you'll lose that moment (or possibly the whole event). Other than this issue, I really have no problem with the phone at all. It updated to Marshmallow less than a month after the Nexus' got it. Charges very nice and fast, doesn't heat up much and it's super smooth in everything I've thrown at it. I would have gotten a new Moto if they added LTE band 12 (for Tmobile), AMOLED, expandable memory in one device for under $500. As of now, ZTE Axon 7 seems to be the winner for me as my next device. I'll wait till the end of summer though to see all my options.

Got this phons just this morning. The first that amazed was the 13mp camera, auto focus and very good at taking macro and micro shots, so I can say that it is not just an ordinary camera for this kind of phone. Front cam, not that really impressive but its okay with good light. Battery? With a 2300mah, I think this will not really work for me coz I am a heavy user. But Im still investigating the battery capacity while i am writing this one. Connected to wifi, without any other apps opened other than Google browser, got 72% still for the last 4 mins (02:21 @ 72%) now its (02:36 @ 69%). For the UI, some other apps or built in softwares are missing sometimes thats why I downloaded a free version of CM Launcher so I can arrange some of the apps I need. Performance is really great @ Lollipop version, but still upgradable to Marshmallow, (better do the upgrade in the morning). Sleek, stylish, unique and elite design. Some would not notice this, but if you are into design specific, you'd really love this one. Thats it for now, I'll add more of this in the ff days. See yah!
mkidd, 27 May 2016Hello guys,
Does anybody know about the next update? I've been waiting for 6.0.1 for a whil... moreThe Moto X2 has been updated to Marshmallow if you have the Pure Edition. If you have the AT&T or Verizon carrier editions, the Moto X2 has NOT been updated to Marshmallow and is NOT scheduled to be updated either.
The carriers must be to blame since Motorola has released the update for this phone to the Pure Editions, a version that doesn't depend on the carriers for updating.
arhum, 28 May 2016Bro can you tell me the camera result of this mobile plzCamera is not that great actually .. you can record hd, slow Mo, 4k videos., and take shots at 13mp. The EIS In this phone is actually very good. It will help you during hd video recoding. In day light u can take some good sharp shots but as the light decreases image quality too decreases. Flash will help you @ night.. I love the flash in this phone. Camera wise it is an average performer, I mean for a premium phone. The same thing suits to the front camera too!

As for now Motorola has updated all their devices except moto x2 in their x series to 6.0.1 ., So there is a possibility for this phone get the 6.0.1 update. But I don't think that moto will include moto x2 for Android N!!
Does anybody know about the next update? I've been waiting for 6.0.1 for a while and it seems like it's not gonna happen.
