motorola moto x (2nd gen)

  1. CheezWiz

    Moto X 2014 XT1096 bought from eBay has Verizon software but AT&T baseband and IMEI 0

    Help Diagnosing Battery Drain

    When I first got my Moto X a few months back, the battery life was (relatively) good - I could go from 7am to 10pm easily and still have some charge left. However, in the last couple of weeks it's been going into battery save mode around 4 - 5 pm. I've checked the battery usage stats and it...
