The new Motorola X Style Smartphone

Two new phones and aiming for the phone of the year ?

Motorola has managed to attract all the attention after the latest launch of their new smartphones.  That’s because they have launched two new phones, and one of them promises to be a serious candidate for the best phone of 2015! The two new phones are called the Moto X Style and Moto X play.

Moto X Style

The new flagship of the Motorola range is called the Moto X Style and has 2 stricking features.  It is a phone with a 5.7 inch QHD display with a ratio of the display from the body of 76%.  The Moto X Style also comes with front stereo speakers which should please music lovers.  The only downside to the smartphone is the processor, which is a Snapdragon 808 with 6 cores, running at 1.8GHz, the same solution chosen by LG.  It also comes with 3GB of RAM. Moto X Style will be available in three versions, 16/ 32 / 64GB but also has the possibility of using a micro SD card of up to 128GB.

The vice president of marketing at Motorola, Adrienne Hayes, made a bold statement about the phone camera in the smartphone the presentation at launch, “We can guarantee that the phone has the best camera in its class”! This 21MP camera has a  f/2.0 lens and phase detection autofocus along with Dual Color Correlated Temperature with (CCT) flash.”  Motorola claims that DxO ranked the Moto X Style camcorder  within the top 3 in the world.

The front camera has a 5MP sensor, an angle of 87 degrees and flash. It can shoot in 4K.  The phone impresses when it comes to battery, not because of its size, as it is “only” of 3,000 mAh, but their Turbocharger 25 technology, that can charge your phone up to 34% in just 15 minutes, which is an absolute record.  Another strong selling point is the price of the unit, which will retail for 399 $ unlocked in the United States, with availability during this month, September.

The next model is the Moto X Play. This smartphone is aimed towards the mid-range sector, but still has some impressive specifications for a phone in this sector.  It comes with a 5.5 inch Full HD screen, a Snapdragon 615 processor and 2GB of RAM. There are only two options for storage space with the Moto X Play, being 16GB and 32GB, but once again it also has support for micro SD cards up to 128GB.  This one too, has a 21MP – f / 2.0 camera, but can only shoot in 1080p because of the processor limit.

The secondary camera is of 5MP,  but does not have a flash.  The battery has a larger capacity of 3630 mAh, which it is claimed provides up to 2 days of normal use, according to Motorola.  There is support for fast loading, but Turbocharger 15 is optional.  Moto X Play will cost 299$, and will be available in 60 countries around the world.
