Moto X Style vs OnePlus 2 vs iPhone 6 Plus: specs comparison

Moto X Style vs OnePlus 2 vs iPhone 6 Plus: specs comparison
As if today wasn't lively enough, Motorola presented its strongest Android portfolio to date, and the pearl of the crown is the new Motorola Moto X Style. An official successor to the 2014 Moto X, the new Moto flagship is impressive with its design and customization flexibility, all while featuring a near-stock Android Lollipop experience at an attractive price point of $399 unlocked.

The Moto X Style's introduction certainly makes the newly announced OnePlus 2 a tougher sale, and the same goes for the iPhone 6 Plus, literally the most superb iOS phablet there is. Since the new Moto flagship is a hot-shot 5.5-inch screen smartphone just like the other two, it makes sense to compare their specs. The Moto X Style and OnePlus 2, in particular, are fighting for the same sub-$400 price tier, while the iPhone 6 Plus can be had on contract for $299, taking the edge off its harsh price tag. Whereas the Moto X Style and OnePlus 2 are trying to outdo each other in terms of value offered for money, Apple is sticking to its time-tested approach of offering a benchmark mobile experience in nearly every aspect (save for, ahem, battery life).

While the OnePlus 2 arguably beats both from the value perspective, actually getting one may turn out to be a frustrating and confusing experience due to OnePlus' invite system. Factor that in with the cost, or opt out and get something else - the choice is entirely yours!
