Moto X Force £449 Sim Free @ Tesco Direct Online

Specs here gsmarena.com/mot…php

Possible tcb/quidco of 1.5% my tcb is currently tracking at £6.80

Cheapest UK price i have found.

I realise there are other flagships for less money (good LG G4 and Nexus 6p deals floating around too) and that best is a subjective term depending on your needs but if your in the market for a top end device and need/want features such as long battery life (3760 mAh), Sd card support, Unbreakable screen** with 4 year warranty, wireless charging, near stock marshmallow android (after update thats already available). Then this phone is worth a look.
On the other hand if you want best camera, best speakers, a large and/or bright screen, pure stock android, fingerprint sensor, a thin light device then this probably isn't the phone for you. No phone is perfect.

** this is a motorola marketing term, i realise it can actually be broken, however here is some destructive abuse of the device for your viewing pleasure youtube.com/wat…KbA (note that droid turbo 2 is the american name for this phone).

This thing is pretty amazing when you watch all those idiotic 'reviewers' on Youtube trying to break this, you litterally have to smash the living *"%@#* out of it before it'll die. There's one where he pounds a hammer onto the screen repeatedly until it finally dies then there's another where they hammer a spike into the screen to kill it then because of their spike it pierces the battery and lots of smoke errupts (and they seem surprised)
Here's a review for you Daily Mail readers out there:

This phone hopefully might set the standard for other flagships to follow in terms of ruggedness.

I should have probably mentioned that delivery is £3 but next day click and collect @ tesco is free.
any voucher codes we can use to lower it even more?
Worth noting that you need to use a screen protector with this if you don't like scratches, since the top 'screen' is basically plastic, and scratches as easily as any plastic does.

That's a fair point, supposedly the thick plastic screen protector/top can be replaced, some reviews show it being peeled off, it's thick looking protector.

Just can't wait for Corning Gorilla Glastic coming soon (hopefully, maybe)

Hmm should I trademark that?

Probably can be replaced, but doubt it will be as cheap as a generic protector, since it might exhibit some extra protective properties that a bog standard Poundland one wouldn't. Friend of mine ordered one of these at launch and sent it back to Amazon within a week as it got little hairline scratches all over it - despite the fact that he's as careful with his phones as I am.

​I thought it came with a thin tempered glass replaceable screen protector installed?
I'm sure I've read the outer screen is user replaceable for £20 - £30 direct from Motorola (they send you instructions on how to do it). I have the 64gb version of this, not the best looking phone in the world but fast, nice screen, good camera, good battery with turbo and wireless charging. No issue's so far, makes a change having a reliable phone after enduring the lg g3 for the last 15 month's!
Just to add this is now running marshmallow as of about a fortnight ago.
I'm selling mine. It's an okay phone. Wireless charging is great but overall I found it a disappointing phone. I wanted to love it but found it quite laggy in places and the whole okay Moto x speech control thing has actually gotten worse though the generation of the Moto x. Yeah. A bit of a let down for me.
I'm beginning to suspect that Marshmallow its self is laggy, it seems to be a common complaint now on several phones.

Just a quick update, if your a student you can use the unidays 15% discount to buy straight from motorola site using moto maker, knocking £75 off the £500 price, with tcb of 6.3% potentially making this sub £400, much better than my original deal although it is only for students, just thought it was worth a mention.
