PhoneArena Portal: Announcing the Moto X Style & Pure Edition
Prior to its announcement, we were skeptical about any announcements besides the new Moto G, but as we sat and waited for the event to begin in New York City, you could feel something else bigger was already brewing. By the end of it all, we came away utterly impressed by what Motorola announced. Unlike some of its rivals, Motorola doesn’t have many big events throughout the year – only reserving one day to make its announcement for pretty much the next full calendar year.

And boy was it something! In our latest PhoneArena Portal series, we take you into the announcement of the new devices from Moto-land. All fingers pointed to the unveiling of the third-generation Moto G, but we were completely surprised when the new Moto X was also introduced. Very recently, we’ve been spoiled by some undeniably competitive smartphones that bring the heat with their combination of killer specs and low price points – such as the ZTE Axon Pro and OnePlus 2.

However, now that the Moto X Style/Pure Edition has been announced, it redirects things towards a whole new course. Hard to deny its ambitious efforts, Motorola ensures that it’s going to be a formidable force once we enter the busy holiday season. Don’t forget to check out the video below summarizing our thoughts about the event and the new phones! Hello Moto indeed!

I still don't get why you are complaining for not having wireless charging, if the Turbo Charging is much better...

Wireless charging can go with turbo charging. No one wants wireless charging instead of Turbo. Also I guess phone was already thick enough that's why moto didn't go for wireless charging.

Actually charging the phone for 10mins means gives it 8 hours of battery, If loosing 2 seconds by using cable and not having wireless which would take hours to get the battery have 8 hours of juice then damn.

I'm sure they will, but I would still go with Moto, I won't get a phone without it, it's that good.

It's just a phone. Your acting like it's your wife. I hope you don't sleep with the phone.

I understand that the amount of actual interaction you have with real people outside the confines of your parent's basement is incredibly limited so I will forgive the fact that you don't know what a real relationship is like and confuse it with something you might have with something you power on and off. And again, how is it you still can't get "your" & "you're" correct? This is elementary grade stuff you keep screwing up on over, and over, and over again, even in the very comments you make to criticize someone else's writing ability.

Hey man there's nothing wrong with living in your parents basement. It's ok Scott. We won't think any less of you. Meanwhile I'll enjoy living in my comfortable two bedroom apartment. Who cares. You're defecting as usual.

At least it doesn't cost 900$. You seriously need to grow up. stop putting your hatred against Motorola or Google or anyone else. Seriously get a DAMN GRIP.

I'm I missing something? this phone deserves a better showing of people... is this some sort of private party? It seems like someone's recently remodeled basement... I'm not trolling... it's a really nice phone...

You aren't very much into interior design I guess.
