Any comments regarding battery life from actual users?
† i have this phone and it lasts full day with normal use. Its a really nice phone.
† Yes, I get over a day with moderate use. †Much better than the Samsung I had before this phone. † On a side note, my daughter dropped her iphone 5s and shattered the screen. †I botched a repair job that left the phone useless. † I bought her a Moto X as a replacement. †Last night she was telling me how much more she likes the Moto X than the iphone. †This surprised me.
I did the upgrade as soon as Moto X came out and couldn't have been happier. I am on wifi only plan for now but plan to change it to 3G in a couple of months. I have previously used it on 3G and was very satisfied. But just on wifi itself, the Moto X has a ton of differences. Its so much more smoother and faster, no lag, no worries about RAM (or space for apps) & with the jelly bean rebate using Defy, its worth every penny @ $199 I haven't been able to use the voice activated features much, but its neat. Like its supposed to read out text messages when you are driving, and all you need to say is something like ("OK Google Now, what was that" or something).. the motorola assistant tracks when you are sleeping or driving etc and you can assign different tasks during such activities. Lastly, eagerly waiting for kit kat update that should start to roll out for RW in a few days.
It lasts me 1 full day with moderate to heavy use. I play games, read news, articles, check emails etc almost the entire day.
Edited to add the fact that only when you part with the Defy & get Moto X do you realize how crappy Defy actually was for Republic Wireless (RW) .. †
