  2. Good equivalent of the Moto X Pure

    One other thought - Save yourself $50 and go with the 32GB version since the G5's are expandable with microSD cards.
  3. Originally read that all bootloader are locked like the original Pixel. The 2 I played with had no bloat. Assuming it's like the last model, when you activate it verizon pushed their app to it which is/was removable. I'm speculating on some details.

    Good eye! Hey @phalkon30, can you confirm the Moto G5 Plus works on USCC?
  6. Good equivalent of the Moto X Pure

    phalkon30, about a dozen posts back. or so, said his wife went from a G4 to a G5+. But I will look into it a bit more.
  7. Good equivalent of the Moto X Pure

    Looking at the CDMA bands for the G5+, it seems to have the correct bands for USCC's network. However, I cannot 100% confirm this, as I haven't heard of anyone actually using it on USCC. I would trust the chart I linked from Moto itself, or search around the forums here and see if anyone has actually activated one.
  8. Good equivalent of the Moto X Pure

    Haha.....I think we posted at the same time, again! This one should work then? https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MR2ZFBI/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER Sounds like it's my only good choice, if I don't find a decent price on another Pure, that is new.
  9. Good equivalent of the Moto X Pure

    The G5+ isn't compatible, according to that list, but people have commented that they're using that phone with USCC, how is that?
  10. Good equivalent of the Moto X Pure

    Most likely. See the link in my post just above yours, we posted at the same time and you might have missed it. The G5 isn't on the list, but as long as it's got the same network connectivity as the Pure it will work.

    EDIT: I deleted what I originally posted, as you answered it with your previous post.

    Here's a compatibility chart for all Moto phones: https://www.motorola.com/us/carrier-compatibility
  13. Good equivalent of the Moto X Pure

    It cannot. The first-gen Moto Z family has 2 variants: GSM Unlocked and Verizon. No Sprint or USCC at all.
  14. Samsung Galaxy Note 8

    Just wanted to start a thread discussing this newer device since nobody has talked about it here yet in the thread posts. I got one on October 3rd and I have to say I am pretty impressed with it. Even without having it rooted or with xposed it exceeded my expectations. Even TouchWiz seems smoother and less glitchy than I remember it to be. I'm still not used to the bombardment of ads but I will say that this device does have root already for the snapdragon and according to the dev on xda who posted the root method it will not trip the Knox fuse. I briefly caught the xda post on this root method while I was at work so I don't know a lot of specifics about it other than it is a bit of a process in which I plan to do more looking into this weekend.

    Ah.....ok. Thank you. I did not know that. Can you tell me if this phone https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LW9P0H4/ref=ox_sc_sfl_title_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER#Ask can be unlocked and used on the USCC network?

    The Nougat update for the Moto X Pure 2015 does not include security fixes for the most recent major Bluetooth and WiFi vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities were discovered after the Nougat update was released.
  17. Good equivalent of the Moto X Pure

    I just got the Nougat update the other day, just haven't installed it yet. I have no problem with my Pure. It's a solid phone, and if I can find another new one at a decent price, I will get it, but the G5 does look like a good option, if I don't.
  18. Good equivalent of the Moto X Pure

    I would also take into account security updates, I doubt your pure will get a fix for the latest wifi and Bluetooth vulnerabilities, while a newer phone will. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  19. Can Moto X be unlocked?

    Lineage OS is the new name for the CyanogenMod ROM. It doesn't require root, but it does require a custom recovery to install. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  20. Good equivalent of the Moto X Pure

    Thank you for the feedback! I love my Pure, and it's a well built phone, but this seems like a reasonable replacement, unless I find a new Pure at a decent price, which is hard.
  21. Can Moto X be unlocked?

    Never heard of that. Does it require rooting and whatnot?
  22. Don't buy it through Verizon as it will have a locked bootloader and some bloat. If recent news with the nexus 6P return fiasco is any indication, get it through Google store or project fi to ensure the best support if you have any issues in the future. Project fi is offering with a Google Home mini for the same price as the Google store for what it's worth. I'm also a convert from USCC to project fi, I totally recommend it! I'm on the same USCC network I always was, but now I have actual roaming, and it's cheaper. I don't see a reason to stick with uscc other than phone selection and maybe if you use a lot of data.

    My wife had a moto g4+ until the battery failed, so I got her the g5+ as a replacement. She loves it! It's snappy, battery life is terrific, and the fit and finish is pretty good. I think the camera on her g4 took better pictures, but it's passable. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  24. Can Moto X be unlocked?

    Throw lineage OS on her s7, it will be great hardware with simple software that almost matches the moto stuff Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  25. My galaxy s4 has about soiled the Sealy. It's been randomly powering off for months and I've been dreading the idea of having to screw with getting a new phone. I've put it off this long because I wanted to wait for the new pixel. Now that it's out I am pretty sure I'll be buying one although I may also consider the older pixel. Seems like the old pixel is only $100.00 less than the 2 which isn't enough of a savings IMOPO. I'm pretty much going with this phone so that I can move to the FI project at some point. I'm OK with USC for now but I'm down to 3 phones on my plan and none in contract. Soon I'll be down to just two phones and this is when I'll look more closely at the fi deal. Whats the best place to buy (not over time/finance) this phone? I'm also curious if they all come with preloaded bloat? Seems like those purchased through cellular providers have a large amount of bloat so I'm wondering if they all do? Thanks for any advice. Galaxy S4, Slimkat If I wasn't married I'd quit fishing
  26. Good equivalent of the Moto X Pure

    Yeah, they seem fairly similar. Slightly smaller screen, lesser quality camera, which isn't a super big deal. Pure does have a good camera. But more RAM on the G5, and slightly better processor. Still uses Gorilla Glass, which is nice.
  27. Can Moto X be unlocked?

    I've got a 2013 Moto X that I'd sell for a very reasonable price, and it's in great condition. PM me if you're interested Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
