Motorola has unveiled not only one but two separate follow ups in the Moto X series. Moto X Play and Moto X Style are two different yet similar phones targeted towards people searching for best in class specifications. Many of Motorola’s audience right now considers Moto Maker a vital part of the whole eco-system and this may be their sole reason choosing Moto X series phone in the first place. Gladly, both of these phones carry Moto Maker. Moto X Style is the higher end version and presumably the replacement for Moto X 2014 while Moto X Play is a cheaper option with a larger battery.
Moto X Style:
Moto X Style comes with a Quad HD 5.7 inch display. Unfortunately, this will break customers who look for a manageable screen size as on the previous Moto X. However, the screen to body ratio is very good, in fact Motorola boasts it’s the best available right now. The narrow bezels surely make the phone easier to handle and manage. Beyond that, you would get a 21MP “best in class” camera, Snapdragon 1.8 GHz Hexa-Core processor coupled with 3GB RAM, 3000mAh battery and configurable up to 64GB of storage. Of course, as mentioned before, you can customize the colors further via Moto Maker.
Moto X Play:
Moto X Play is the new kid. The design clearly shows how Motorola has developed it truly separate from their other phones. Bold edges rather than curved ones. This phone surely hits the right spots with it’s design but do the specs compare? We think so. The key factor here is the bigger battery. Compared to 3,000mAh battery on the Moto X Style, you get a 3,630mAh battery. Rather than getting thin and compromising, Motorola has stuck with what’s practical. This battery will power a 5.5 inch 1080p display along with a Snapdragon 615 Octa-Core processor. In the optics department, it is going to have a 21MP back camera which Motorola is very proud of and a 5MP front camera. Moto Maker is compatible for all of you interested. The only major downside, US market is not on the list of sales unfortunately.
Both of these phones prove to be strong contenders for people looking to buy a phone in $300-400 range and competes very strongly with the recently announced OnePlus 2, which we covered earlier. What will be your smartphone of choice? We know it’s becoming quite difficult to choose with so many different phones present in the market now.
