Motorola Moto X Style, Moto X Play unveiled

Motorola has unveiled not just one, but two successors of the Moto X 2014. The new Moto X Play and Moto X Style smartphones claim to deliver powerful cameras, worthwhile software experiences and deep customization options.

The better Moto X successor of the two, the Motorola Moto X Style features a 5.7-inch display, Quad HD resolution and stereo sound from front-facing speakers. The company claims it has utilized the most advanced camera tech available for the Moto X Style, allowing the phone to have features such as rapid focus, zero shutter lag and color-balancing flash.

Also worthy of note is its screen-to-body ratio: at 76%, it beats iPhone 6 Plus (68%) and Samsung Galaxy S6 (71%). One of the bundled accessories is the TurboCharger 25, which along with the phone’s fast charging capability can fill up a third of the battery capacity within 15 minutes.

Motorola Moto X Play

On the other hand, the Motorola Moto X Play offers slightly lower yet still respectable specs. It features a 5.5-inch Full HD display, 48-hour battery life and a water-repellent design (i.e., not waterproof, just good enough against light rain and accidental spills). The Moto X Play still comes with the 21-megapixel camera found in the Style, but its front-facing camera no longer has its own LED flash. Fast charging is still supported, but the turbo charger is no longer bundled for free.
