Moto X Pure Edition vs. 2014 Moto X: Worth the upgrade?

19 Sep 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

Best Buy appears to have burned through most of their Moto X Pure Edition inventory already.

Having created quite a decent space for itself in the low-cost and budget smartphone markets with the Moto E and Moto G respectively, Motorola now appears to be targeting consumers in the mid-range market.The Moto X Style is as fast as the LG G4, because it uses the same hardware configuration consisting of a Qualcomm MSM8992 Snapdragon 808 hexa core processor with 3GB of RAM, but its internal storage which is available in variants of 16/32/64 GB can be expanded up to 128GB.

Motorola’s Moto Maker online customisation service has a range of backs and trims to choose from, and lets you engrave your phone for no extra cost, which is a nice touch. Although you wont be able to customize your device like you could when buying direct from Motorola, prices are the same and you could potentially get the phone in your hands a lot sooner (while racking up or using some of those Best Buy points you’ve accumulated). This certainly means that the Moto X Play produces larger images than the Moto X (2nd Gen), but the image quality from both the smartphones is quite identical.

We’re sure more stock while arrive soon, so if you don’t want to deal with the hassle of building/waiting for your Moto X to ship from China, sit tight. Featuring wireless charging functionality, the 46m Moto 360 contains a 400mAh battery while the 42mm case holds a 300mAh battery which can last 1.5 days of regular usage.

A metal strap in silver, gold or black color options will cost an extra £30 (roughly $46), while Micro Knurl bezels are available for an extra £20 (about $31). There’s still a little stutter when pulling down the notifications menu, but largely the phone feels snappy and responsive, an impression that’s reinforced by Motorola’s clean – and mostly unfettered – Android 5.1.1 Lollipop installation. The main camera is a 21 MP unit with phase detection autofocus, dual-LED flash, and 4K video recording, while the front-facing shooter has a 5 MP sensor with LED flash.

The silver strip running along the camera lens and flash at the back reminds us of the Moto G (3rd generation) as it carries a similar design element at the back. In short, though, LCD just doesn’t play well with Moto Display, and while the feature is still useful on the new Moto X, its implementation feels like a real step down from how it’s worked in the past. Partnering with a carrier will have no effect on the near-vanilla Android software running on Motorola’s smartphones, said Danny Adamopoulos, the product manager of Motorola in Australia and New Zealand, at last month’s launch event.

The loudness was pretty good.) The phone has not shown any signs of lag during the little time we have spent with it, but it’s too early to comment anything about its performance including the battery life delivered by its large 3,630 mAh battery.
