Very happy with this great device!!
snowgator has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
As a background: I have been a Windows Phone user for years, so this purchase was one I took my time with. Deciding to move to Android was a tough call, and I wanted to get it right. I spent maybe 4 months reading and finding devices, and I wasn't enthused about going 600.00 bucks or better in debt for a phone. Once I settled on what I wanted- a pure Android experience, a well reviewed device, and good audio- the X Pure stood out. I am overall very happy, and growing very comfortable with it. It has a great feel to it if you get the rubber backing. It makes for a comfortable hold and a great premium feel. The screen is fantastic, and the flash is a great flashlight that lights up my whole backyard. The motion related commands (shaking the phone opens the camera, chopping downwards sideways with it opens the flashlight) are amazingly handy even if they are not perfect and take a few extra tries to work. Ditto the voice recognition- Motorola has put in it's own software to make voice commands unique to the Moto series, and I find it to be really hit or miss.
But what a strong device. It runs flawless, a benefit of stock Android that I just don't see in devices with UI on top of it. Unlocked, all that carrier crap is kicked to the curb with just the usual Google apps and some Motorola options. It's audio is fan-freaking-tastic, and I am pleased with the Microsoft apps, even if I haven't quite figured out the Android operation yet. I spent a little extra, shopped around...

I skipped the 2nd gen and got this

I am coming from the HTC One M9 (I believe that I took some pretty decent pictures) I am pretty impressed with the Moto X Pure it's a great all around phone that has good battery life, decent camera even though I think that the stock camera app could use some options performance isn't an issue.

I picked Moto X over Google 6P
wonkman has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
Couldn't decide between this and the Google 6P. The AMOLED on the 6P is colorful but I don't like the whites that much. Like the Moto build design much better that the 6P with that visor and plastic door on the bottom. Moto is grippyer with the rubberized back. 6P is also longer and speaker are good but Moto is better.
In the end, the 6P had only two things I wanted that the Moto didn't: an AMOLED screen and a notification light. I like everything else better on the Moto and the screen is an extremely nice second to the 6P and I think the white background on the Moto looks better but blacks are not as dark. Moto has SD too which is nice if I need it. Its also cheaper. Personally I couldn't care less about the fingerprint scanner at this point.

Excellent phone, expecially for the price. Battery is the only con but turbo charge makes up for it. Great size, screen, build, lollipop is smooth and quick. I would not hesitate to get this phone again. Claims of this phone being pricy or the screen too sensitive are troll posts as this is excellent for the price and nothing unusuable about the screen sensitivity.

Great phone with few weak spots
bkdroid has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
This phone does everything you'd want it to, without the added layer of manufacturer and carrier bloat you get with most other phones. The inclusion of expandable storage puts it above many other phones on my list. The Battery life is acceptable, though not great. It would also be nice if a fingerprint sensor was included given the current trend towards mobile payments.

How can you not love this phone? At this price point, it's impossible to beat. From the build quality, the front facing stereo speakers, the customization options and nearly stock Android.
Anyone (above) who gives this phone a negative review has neither had the phone or is a troll.

Close to tears
elayne has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review
I absolutely love this phone. I purchased this phone a few months after it came out, as flagship phone I believe. Not once have I ever had a problem... until now. A few months ago I started having problems with the charging port on this phone and it has gotten to the point where I have to purchase I new one (there's no place to fix it where I live). I do not want to give up my phone, I am on the verge of tears on this one. Usually I am so excited to have and try something new, but in this case, I just want my phone to work forever. I am afraid to purchase a new one of these because I am afraid to have the same issue.. I wish they would come out with a newer version of the moto x pure, but it doesn't look like that will be happening. So, sadly, I say goodbye.

No bloatware, camera very good. Switched from Samsung, never going back. But what a strong device. It runs smoothly, a benefit of stock Android that you don't see in devices with UI on top of it. Unlocked, all that carrier bloatware is a thing of the past with just the usual Google apps and some Motorola options. It's audio is fantastic.
My favorite cellphone to date!
CreepyCulture has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
I've had a lot of phones in the past bit the Moto X Pure Edition is hands down my favorite device. No bloatware, an amazing camera, beautiful large display, a build that feels great in your hands, two front facing speakers, and the option to customize it anyway you want! You definitely can't go wrong with this phone, especially for the price!
Super fast but easy to crack
ibulp has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
Very fast phone and smooth, I switched from galaxy S5 to Moto X Pure because I wanted a fast phone at that time, the camera takes beautiful pictures, however the build quality is not good whenever you drop your phone you will have to either crack or break a part of the body.. Overall a very good phone and I recommend it with protection

Best phone I've owned.
Lp7504sv has owned it for less than year before publishing this review
Everything about this phone is exceptional!!! Better than any nexus or int iPhone. The stock ui is very fast and simple to use. Moto actions are a must have on any phone. Not only do you get use to the phone, but the phone gets use to you, making everyday things fast and easy.

Amazing Phone For an Amazing Price
sumaer45 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
Amazing phone, super powerful, feels great in the hand, just wish the battery life and camera were a little better. Stock Android makes this phone amazing, and the amount of ram (3 GB) is great. Awesome build quality, as the back of the phone has one of the most grippy textures ever!

Can't beat it for the price
fsudolphin has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review
Is this the best phone out there? No. But it's close enough to the best phones out there that you will still be happy with the extra $200-$400 in your pocket after choosing this over its pricier cousins.

My first Motorola since the RAZR.
newmotoguy has owned it for less than month before publishing this review
So happy to finally have a Motorola phone again after all of these years, one that I won't return after just a few days. Haven't really liked a phone this much since the RAZR. Feels great in my hand and it is built very nice. Screen is just awesome.
