    Post News? Maybe i Hope!

    Anyone else noticing improved battery life after the update? I did a full factory reset after the update because it broke my Bluetooth but its been running great for me. Today might just be a fluke so ill keep a close eye over the next few days but so far it seems to be doing better with idle...

    Post Moto Z Force still a decent option if purchased today (Aug 2017)?

    Without a moto mod? not really. if you want battery life with good performance the Moto Z Force is a good option still in my opinion, now they it just got updated to Android 7.1.1 if battery life is more important than raw performance I would say the Moto Z Play or Z2 Play are even better...

    Post News? Maybe i Hope!

    Just got the update yesterday myself. was excited to see that it was 7.1.1 but got annoyed fast that it broke my admittedly already broken Bluetooth. (wouldn't turn on) But after backing everything up and a little bit of stumbling through the "restore" part of a full reset everything is running...

    Post Nougat Rolling Out!

    I was thinking the same thing. although I'm going to be honest I was extremely surprised that I would be able to pull the update on day one from when they said it would be released. [emoji41] Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk

    Post Anyone know if Moto Z Force supports UHS-II micro SD cards?

    the physical cards fit but I want to know if the extra pins are actually put to use to get the speeds the cards are rated for. backwards compatibility and software overhead make this hard to find out. lol Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk

    Post No Quick Charge 2.0/3.0 support

    I bought the Choetech charger from amazon and it works great on my Z Force. no where near the OEM charger but still charges the phone dead to full in a little over an hour and a half. from my limited testing.

    Post Scosche Magnetic Dash Mount (MAGDM2)

    same here. glad that I didn't need to pull the plate out of my Moto X pure case just for the new phone. holds just as good in my nakid tough case for my Z Force. ? I wonder how well it would work with a Moto mod attached like the power packs? ? Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk

    Post Android 6. 0. 1 for the XT1575

    so far I'm only aware of 6.0.0 for the US Moto X pure. the software comes direct from Motorola/Lenovo so they don't have different otas for different carriers. it's all the same phone. we do have the February security patch though. haven't seen or heard of anything since though. Sent from my...

    Post what is wrong with the 16GB model vs. 32 or 64GB?

    from my admittedly limited knowledge of memory fabrication, I believe that companies test a few random chips from a batch and determine the bin(rating) from those tests. so you could have two chips from the same bin but you can still have one chip that performs higher than normal from the rest...

    Post what is wrong with the 16GB model vs. 32 or 64GB?

    So my memory of performance was from my older Sony and the 32gb card I had in it. Just ran the numbers using the A1 SD bench app and this is what I came up with. Also this is the microSD card that I currently have in my phone right now...

    Post what is wrong with the 16GB model vs. 32 or 64GB?

    I don't have any screen shots to show but from my own benchmarking, internal memory is on average 10x to 12x faster than even good performance microSD cards. I've got a Samsung 64gb class 10/u1 card and my internal 64gb beats it by many fold. Add in app overhead and depending on how you use your...

    Post Soak Test

    I noticed that I said for Moto X style. I clicked on the support links in there and selected region (usa) and moto x pure,searched for marshmallow and it doesn't come up with anything. I'm guessing that this was uploaded early before they are ready for the real release. Though one can hope that...

    Post Moto X Style or Droid Turbo 2?

    My dad just got the Droid turbo 2 and likes it. The screen size isn't too bad and they used an amoled display for it. It does have a ton of VZW crap ware installed that you can't get rid of but he traded in his 2013 moto x with a fully shattered screen and he still got $200 trade in for the...

    Post X Style Vs X Force

    Yes the Moto X force (Droid Turbo 2 in the US) is a more powerful phone but it has a price tag to match. It was launched here in the US for Verizon wireless only, 32gig is $624 off contract or $720 for the 64gig variant. That's $174 or $220 more respectively compared to the Moto X Pure edition...

    The My Verizon app and widget is and forever will be the only thing I will actually use from Verizon as far as apps go. The fact that I dont have to deal with the VZW Tones or VZW Navigator being preloaded and unremovable was all the more reason to get the Pure outright instead of the LG G4. All...

    Post Moto X Pure or AT&T LG G4

    I would personally pick the Moto X pure (partly because its what i own). Moto X pure Pros: Unlocked- your not stuck with AT&T if you get the pure because it also works on just about all US carriers. Almost Pure Android- Aside from the couple of additions from Motorola this phone as close to a...

    Post The Z3v is not waterproof, and warranty won't cover water damage.

    I had something of a similar issue but with a good ending. For a few weeks my charge cover wouldn't close right all of the time because the seal came partly undone from but I could sometimes get it back in flush. One day at work I guess it just wasn't the case because after about a minute in the...

    Post Up on Bestbuy. Its a start.

    I actully talked to a Sprint rep in store about a week ago and they said that the phones will have to be brought into a Sprint store that has a Sprint Tech so they can add the IMEI to there network. I hope this isnt too late.
