It's good to see Moto without Google more than a year
Looking forward to this

The current Moto X at $300 is a terrific value. I don't expect the new one to be priced at $300, but hopefully still a good value for not much more than that.

Not so terrific value. I would rather get htc one m8 for same price (and flash GPE rom), or add 100-120 more and get nexus 6, or add 200 more and get S6, better choices.

Yeah but do you know about the battery dying issues of M8. 5 of my friends have M8. 4 of them had to get batteries replaced after a year and two now have dents on the back of their phone cause of that
8. Ruturaj (Posts: 1172; Member since: 16 Oct 2014)
Didn't know that, and I thought it was user replaceable (now I know it isn't) so never really cared.

HTC One M8: $500. N6: $600. S6: $700. While these are excellent phones, they are far from being a comparable value.

What a pointless reply and comparison to other devices. It's amazing value, you could buy almost two Moto X's instead of an S6, which is the whole idea of value devices; not to spend more money and get the current flagship-of-the-year.

I am not talking about msrp, check prices on ebay. On ebay you get
S6 for 500, One m8 for 530, N6 for 450. (all new)

Those phones on eBay usually come from other regions of the world supporting different bands from the US. For instance, a listed Samsung Galaxy S6 SM-G920F doesn't support 2G or 3G on band 4, so it's handicapped to work with either AT&T or T-mobile, especially in the countryside. In the US, only the models SM-G920R, SM-G920V, SM-G920A, SM-G920G and SM-G920P are sold.
Besides, the prices you quoted are at least 50% higher than the Moto X, so they don't seem to me as good a value as it.

There's better value out there. You can do much better for $300.

I'd glad to learn about better deals, please.

Don't bother with the delusional rantings of a brain damaged simpleton like Mxyzptlk, The guy's butt hurt over Motorola and has been trolling them for a long long time. The Moto X is a poor deal to him but paying twice as much for a smaller batter, half the RAM, and the same amount of storage is perfectly acceptable for him.

That's probably due to the fact that you have your head up your @$$... Or maybe you've moved on from sheep and actually do have your head up a bull's @$$. You're into some really sick stuff.

M7 is $199 on best buy. The S5 is about $300. The Asus Zenfone is about $300. The Nexus 5 can be bought for about $200. Unlike Scott jenner I'm not talking with my head stuck up my butt.

No, you heave your head shoved up the butts of various barn yard animals. See post 16 & 17 for clarification.
21. Augustine (Posts: 1043; Member since: 28 Sep 2013)
Used or discontinued phones... enough said.

See how much xperia z ultra costs in US. Buy that if it pleases you and it should. It's 6.1mm and glass + metal. SD 800 adreno 300 etc.... Amazing specs+ looks at an insanely reduced price.

The moto g 2013 upped the midrange phone category but the 2014 & this 2015 are not upping anything :(

Seriously hope the camera knocks it out of the park.
11. DRS1977 (Posts: 358; Member since: 27 May 2015)
I am really hoping they show the new 360, I don't care much about their phones.

I hope the Moto X comes more compact this time. Let's cut them bezels down please! I need a phone I can use one handed.

I think they put 3 cities to announce 3 phones. They put Sao Paulo because Brazil is one of the key markets for the G

After buying the Nexus 6 which give me huge disappointment. That will be my first and last moto product.
