The new Motorola Moto X Play is a bit cheaper than the original Moto X. This new mid-range smartphone has seen to cut corners that may have some compromises that will not appease everyone. It would seem that Motorola did not focus too much on the design of the their new smartphone. The new mobile phone did not have the Moto X Style but it still has a sleek feel and look to it. The area around the camera is new logo, along with how the Motorola logo looks, which would seem fresh even to fans of Motorola’s mobile phone line.
Taking a Deeper Look at the Motorola Moto X Play
The weight of the Motorola Moto X Play is 169 grams and is pretty reasonable for smartphone standards. The phone is 10.9 millimeters thick at its thickest point but the phone is slightly curved for a more comfortable fit when holding it on the hand. In fact, many who have tried holding the phone feels that it’s not bulky at all despite it being thicker as compared to other smartphones in today’s market. This is most likely due to the thin bezels surrounding the area of the phone. When you remove the back cover of the Moto X Play you will see its impressive battery of 3630 mAh which may be a defining specification for people to immediately get the phone. It indicates a long battery life as compared to other mid-range smartphones of today.
The basics are all there as well, such as the mounted headphone jack, and a removable nano SIM and microSD tray. However, the UK model for the X Play does not have a second nano-SIM slot which the OnePlus 2 has. Benchmark tests also prove that the Moto X Play is not a flagship killer and it’s not much of a powerhouse, but when compared to the OnePlus 2, it doesn’t have much of a difference. Looking at the internal storage capacity of the X Play, you will immediately notice that it doesn’t boast a lot of space as compared with higher-end models. But customers will have the option of placing a 128GB microSD card into the phone for a larger storage space. The Motorola Moto X Play does fairly well when pitted against the OnePlus 2. However, when it comes to overall features and specs, the latter may be the clear winner between the two.
