Moto X Style – Different Style With Different Touch

Posted on Jul 29 2015 - 7:47am by Patrick Henry

Motorola has now unveiled the best smartphone with lots of features and specs which is “Moto X Style.” This time around there are two versions the Moto X Style and the Moto X Play. The Style is the bigger, more powerful and more expensive. Good job then that the Moto X Style looks like it can compete, at first glimpse at least.

Style

Stock Android

There is no try hard UI (user interface) layer getting in the way, all you get is stock Android and a few Motorola apps to help make life a little easier when getting a new phone Motorola Migrate is one example. All three new phones of Motorola, the Moto G 2015, Moto X Play and the Moto X Style sport an undiluted version of Android.

Camera Result, Storage & Connectivity

Moto X Style’s rear camera is 21 MP and the camera app is fires off shots quickly thanks to the phase detection auto-focus and images look good on screen. But quite how that will translate in the real world we aren’t sure. The lack of optical image stabilization a specialty now standard for flagships is a mark against it.

There isn’t USB Type C, though, just the usual micro-USB 2.0 for charging and connecting to a computer. The Moto X Style comes in 16, 32 and 64GB versions, but also has a microSD slot, making it more attractive than the OnePlus 2 and Galaxy S6 when it comes to cheap and plentiful storage. 4G is included, of course, as are all the Wi-Fi standards you will need.

Screen

To stamp home its flagship credentials, the Moto X Style also comes with a Quad HD resolution screen, matching the Galaxy S6 and LG G4, as well as two front facing speakers. The 520 pixels-per-inch are a little lower than those since the screen is bigger, but you’ll need binoculars for eyes to spot the tiniest hint of a little square. The Style’s screen is sharp, very sharp.

This is a hexa-core chipset with a powerful 1.8Ghz dual-core CPU supported by a 1.4Ghz quad-core for lower intensity tasks. There’s also 3GB RAM. It’s plenty fast on the LG G4 and we don’t anticipate anyone finding the Moto X Style lacking in power either.

Final Decision

It is the biggest competitor may well be the Moto X Play. That has the same camera and a bigger battery although the screen is lower resolution and the processor a step down.
