    The Moto Mod pogo pins will not shock you, no electricity coming out like that to shock you. But....if you get them wet repeatedly that could lead to corrosion (over time). Personally I would always use either a Style Shell (or other Moto Mod) or a case that covers the Moto Mod pins at all times, to protect them and the back of the phone. It's like driving a new car without the floor mats and then wondering g why the carpet looks dirty & worn out.

    Disagree. Covering this svelte and sexy phone with a back is like dating a super model that only wears sweat pants, sweat shirts and big puffy coats.
    Nothing is going to damage the pins. It would have to soak to corrode them.
    And as I've said, I drop my phone constantly. The back looks new. Love to know what it's made of.

    I've never in my life had comments on a phone before. Not that I care. Not that I want comments. Not that I bought this phone to get comments. But at least 6 people:
    "Wow, that's thin"
    "That is impossibly thin"
    Holds it next to iPhone "I thought mine was thin?"

    the only time I had comments on my phone was when I had the original iphone.
    like the model, it is fun to imagine what was under the case :)

    I normally get comment and questions about my Z Force when using the light Oak colored style shell Mod. People ask if it's a real wood back and then when I show them the style shell conecpt, they say...."oh yeah, that phone that you can snap extra stuff on the back. How do you like it?"

    you could have replaced the backcovers on the first few samsung notes. this was similar to the shell style concept. now you can only do it with cases :-( moto is ahead of the game with this.

    Moto is ahead of the game in a lot of things Android related, but gets very little credit. Except for the few of us tech nerds that have owned them, and other phones, and can see their new functionality become stock Android year after year.

    I've been testing Android Auto and the #1 thing I want from it is text message assistance.
    It's embarrassing how much better Moto's Drive handles inbound texting.
    On AA, I hear no notification and a message is displayed onscreen. I have to interact with it by either touching Play, or saying "Ok Google, Play that message".
    Of course I don't need to explain to my Moto-ites how ours works. I can't believe no other company offers anything close.

    Update my drop tests have not scratched the screen but the black paint on the edges has been chipping away

    Both my bottom corners are scratched up. I don't care. Screen isn't cracked.
