My god Motorola, how about you focus on getting us timely updates instead? The Motorola Android experience is as close to stock as anybody, but it takes MONTHS to roll out updates, if we get them at all.

Ok Moto ...if you cant stop it from heating....then cool it :)

This is just stupid. Now smartphones need cooling. Processor of 1.5 GHZ 8 core can give you performance than most 2.5 GHZ CPU without any heat if the OS make 8 core useful enough and plus it can saves you battery life. 1.5 GHz CPU can be more powerful if right components, materials and schemes are used than those heat producing 2.7 GHz CPU. These 2.5 Ghz, 2.7 Ghz are just marketing tricks for people to think that they have something so powerful. I would like these companies start using their brain and make our smartphones more useful and put features just what people need and not using some marketing tricks to sell your products.

AnonD-462236, 23 Dec 2015and what about finger print sensor The fingerprint sensor is shite when you see the Lumia 950 iris recognition in action. That stuff is smooth, fast and works no matter how dirty your fingers might be (you'll never get your eyes dirty, right?). I hated the fingerprint sensor's lack of accuracy so much I disabled it in place of the stock Android pattern lock.

wish they put Qualcomm's finger print solution, i.e, without a specific place to put the finger

If motorola use Exynos 7420 there would be no need to have cooling system.
Besides nowadays even the laptops are coming without a cooling system
