Not sure I'd like that.  Curious how volume controls on the left would be more convenient for you (guessing our hands are very different sizes, though).

Just a preference when it comes to taking screenshots/booting into fastboot, etc.  I do like them in their current location for actually functioning as volume keys. :)

Aha!  Got it!  Now I understand, and I agree that getting into the recovery menu either requires more fingers than I have, or fingers in different places.   :-D

Better Camera, I mean "IF you want so so pictures, ok.  But now, you need better.  Not just Mg.  New Samsung is amazing camera, higher f stop.  USB C standard for bottom.  So we can hook it to TV's and other items while charging.

#1 for ANY phone, as a public safety issue, FM radio chip should be enabled for use during disasters.


I echo, get rid of 16GB, maybe even 32 GB, if there won't be a microSD slot.


Stereo speakers.



Expand Moto capabilities past the presets/  Build some more customability into the app. (OK, so this is not strictly a MotoX thing)



I know that there was something else on my mind, but I'm old, it's before coffee, I can't think of it right now.

I would like to see a good quality back leather option, the current leather back has no good condition and doesn´t look good at all.



I would also like to see the ability to make the screen even dimmer, the lowest brightness in the current Moto X is really bright in completely dark ambient, and the highest brightness is really dark when exposed to sun and in really bright ambient.

Agree. Above all, the next Moto X or flagship device had better have a removable battery or I will be switching to another company's product. Don't really care what other upgrades they provide..

If you want to deconstruct the Sammy S6/Edge, you can remove the battery (melt the glue, take out 13 teeny-tiny screws, but not exactly something you can do on the go if you run out of juice (which is why, I'm guessing you want the removable battery).



So Samsung is out.  So is the HTC One M9.  Apple is out.  That kind of leaves you with the LG G4, and it's good that it has a removable battery, because the CNet review I just read said that the LG's battery performance isn't great, and not as good as the S6/Edge.



As people demand sleeker phones, the removable battery becomes a thing of the past, because a removable battery and its cover take up more space.

I would be more than happy to just have the SD card slot back. It makes life a lot easier. Music, video and file storage is always a great thing to have.

The battery on the last phone I had, also a Motorola, did not last long before dying.  I'd hate to have to replace my X after a year or two  because of a dead battery. I figure that is their objective when they axe the removable option.  I am not one who needs to get a new phone every year.

Battery replacement can be done by repair for something around $60-75, IIRC.
I'm pretty addicted to my phones and have never replaced a battery...even
when they WERE replaceable.
Good battery practices include but are not limited to: don't let it die
completely, recharge whenever you can, top offs are good, and charge while
you sleep to start fresh and keep battery calibrated. Remember, excessive
heat is the enemy of your battery.
