Exactly as I thought.
It's basically stock anyways - and GPE is just stock with the most important hardware features retained (see the One and SGS4).
Which I've noted all along - is exactly how the X seems to be.
Only diff is in the update cycle and I've yet to see that making a difference on the GPE phones beyond just claims.
Yeah saw that earlier today, makes a lot more sense.
What do you mean about GPE update claims? The one and GS4 both are on 4.3 now with the GPE, so it definitely helped them out.
While the Moto X is nearly stock it is still on 4.2.2, so it is a little behind. What this tells me is that the Moto X on the play store will most likely be updated about as fast as the other GPE phones because lack of carriers involved.
Carriers seem to slow everything down
