Motorola Moto X Play

Description

The Motorola Moto X Play rocks a 64-bit, 1.7 GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 – a midrange SoC, which we've found to be quite adequate in our experience. The phone is equipped with 2 GB of RAM and has 16 GB / 32 GB storage variants. Both are expandable via microSD of up to 128 GB. The display has a 5.5” diagonal with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and the Play doesn't have the stereo speakers, which adorn the front of the Style. The battery that keeps the lights on has an impressive capacity of 3,630 mAh and Motorola promises up to 48 hours of “mixed usage”, and turbo charging. In terms of camera, the device packs impressive specs – its main snapper rocks a 21 MP sensor with F2.0 aperture and a dual-tone LED flash, while the frontal cam has a 5 MP sensor. Motorola's UI philosophy is along the lines of “the lighter – the better”. The midranger comes with Android 5.1.1 installed out-of-the-box and offers it in its vanilla form.

This device is also known as Motorola XT1562
