    Want a pure android 64GB Motorola device but do not want the screen size of the Nexus 6, then check out the Moto X pure edition 64GB option from Motorola (My Moto X design). With the ability to customize through Motomaker and a smaller footprint the Pure may be the Moto you were looking for.

    Yeah, I'd be a little upset if I settled for 32gb two months ago.

    Had this been the same footprint as the original Moto X, you'd have something. Close in size to the Turbo and I'm not sure why anyone would want the X, aside from the misguided belief that a phone is some sort of fashion accessory.

    Except the pure edition is practically a nexus-like device. So for those wanting a Moto device that gets fast updates and can be rooted the moto pure is the way to go.

    Any CDMA support for VZW users? I know Nex6 is dual antenna but unsure about the X?

    Fair enough. But I'm VERY happy I went with the phone with 3 gigs of ram - I normally have 1.2-1.5gigs free. I don't think 2gigs was terribly "future-proof" for what I like to do with it. Plus, no complaints about Turbo battery-life it's great.

    Although I did seriously consider grabbing the 2013 Moto X because the 4.7" display is the perfect size IMO.

    Well, a Moto X is only a 32-bit phone, so it really isn't "future-proof" in that aspect, either. I feel that more RAM would be more beneficial to a 64-bit system.

    EDIT

    Just realized you were talking about the Turbo. Didn't even know that was a 64-bit phone, that's sweet.

    Doesn't matter. 64-bit's primary benefit is to address 4+ gigs of ram. For phones with 3gigs or less the benefit of 64-bit is very, very marginal.

    I feel pretty good that 3gigs of ram will be sufficient for a good while - apps and OS have a long way to go before pushing its limits. I didn't feel that way with 2gigs, which is why I ultimately went with the Turbo over the 2013 X.

    Well, the Verizon Moto X 2014 was the first of the Motorola X phones to launch with no SVDO on Verizon (i.e. one antenna). Just like the Turbo and certain other phones in the newest releases, it requires the Advanced Calling or VOLTE to do SVDO. It has already gotten that update but if 4G isn't strong in your area you either have to disable Advanced Calling or risk calls dropping.

    As for this version, the Moto X Pure 64 - although it is essentially a mini Nexus 6, and since it's designed to run on all networks, it apparently does have similar configuration but no CDMA so I believe it doesn't support SVDO on Verizon without VOLTE.

    Notice the CDMA bands on the Nexus 6 that are missing on the X Pure. I believe that's what gives the 6 resident SVDO. Also notice the extra/different bands, 1700 on UMTS/HSPA+, AND 5 & 17 ON 4G LTE on 4G versus the Verizon one with no 1700 on UMTS, no 5 and 13 instead of 17 on 4G LTE on the X Pure...

    I'm not sure what all is the significance of all those differences is but it seems that it might not support some systems in "The Americas". However, it may support SVDO on AT&T since it has IMTS/HSPA+ which is what allows iPhones to have dual voice/data on their networks.

    Nexus 6 - Americas Model (XT1103)

    GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)

    LTE (2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 12, 13, 17, 25, 26, 29, 41)
    CA DL (B2-B13, B2-B17, B2-29, B4-B5, B4-B13, B4-B17, B4-B29)


    Moto X - Pure Edition (GSM Unlocked with T-Mo SIM - XT1095):

    GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
    UMTS/HSPA+ (850, 900, 1700 (AWS), 1900, 2100 MHz)
    4G LTE (2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 17)

    Moto X - Verizon (XT1096):

    GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)

    Whether it is Windows or Android, unused RAM is wasted RAM for the most part. Having 1+ GB of free RAM isn't really a HUGE benefit unless you have a reason to keep a ton of apps open all the time.

    I didn't see a purchase option for the Pure on the Moto website.
