Root it and go in and turn off some of the system apps you don't need running that suck the battery up and you'd be pleasantly surprised. Mine is on all the time, day and night, and I get about 3 to 4 days before it starts getting down into the teens of battery percentage before I stick it on the charger......
Great phone for the consumers who don't want a hefty price tag, but it's a pretty rare phone now to see around here. It's quick and snappy, doesn't have anything dragging it down like TouchWiz. It can run modern apps like Pokemon Go. Oh yeah, don't upgrade to lolipop, you will kill your phone's battery twice as quick. It gets the job done and doesn't over compensate for what it has.
I have purchased Moto X today. Just one thing is bothering whenever I try to install facebook app from Play store, gets a message "Unfortuntately Google Play store has stopped" and it is closed. Any idea what would be the problem (I have installed many other apps and updated previously installed successfully)
Clothes wet for 5 seconds, the phone, in a pocket, no longer restarted. I lost data and photos.
I will purchase another phone, certainly not Motorola.
I got a Moto X pretty late in the game. A few new models are already out in the market place. But I like it a lot. I have the 32 gig example, have updated it from KitKat 4.4.4 to the latest Android version 6 Marshmallow, even skipped the LoliPop versions completely, rooted it and crashed it a few times to the point where I needed and got the original Motorola bootloader software to bring it back from oblivion.
I have no issues with any apps, although I can disagree with the reference below to something like 574 hours of standby time, which must be "moon time" where gravity doesn't drain the batteries. It is pretty hard on power, but it isn't an issue for me because I have a charger in my BMW which plugs right into my USB port.
I also use TeamViewer, currently v.11, which enables me to not only access my entire home network for where ever I might be, but also load the Mot X onto the desktop or laptop or tablet when I am at home, making the phone much easier to use in terms of screen resolution as well as access to updates and installation of apps via the laptop instead of Google's Play Store. I just go out looking for what I need on my laptop, and using the USB access, install to the phone right from the laptop.
I would recommend this phone to anybody. Now a days it's pretty inexpensive, there are lots of apps available for it, and it is pretty damn reliable too.
Fact is, I'm about to get another one for around ten bucks specifically for crash practice. For ten bucks, if it bursts into flames, I'd just throw it in the sink, run water on it and toss it in the garbage.

hey guys I have this phone for over 2 years and recently I installed Xposed Framework but the variant was not the right one for my phone's architecture and now my phone has bootloop, I'm currently using CyanogenMode and I have tried to many solutions such as installing factory ROM but with every single that I have tried I will not go further than bootloop... Any suggestion

Joost_block, 21 Jul 2016Does it run pokemon go well?I play Pokemon Go on this phone, I do exit all other apps though to help reduce battery drain and lagging.
