Motorola seems to be one of the very few brands - in any field for that matter - that seem to grow with a very constant style and substance formulation. This kind of success becomes very formulaic for only certain brands or companies that finally become an authentic trade mark style of the company. And, Motorola seems to have conquered it with much relative ease, that makes it stand out amongst other smartphone brands.
Let us just start from the beginning. First up, the brands of Moto G was a bomb - both Generations Two and Three, so majestically branded as Moto G2 and G3. With their high end specifications that gave well known companies like Samsung and LG a run for their money, the smartphones were a major success for Motorola. Then came the sleek Moto X Play, that was the complete package for anyone who wanted almost, well, everything from their smartphones - be it work, play or fun, all was part and parcel of the Moto X Play model.
But, for all this hype, one would have certainly guessed the amount of work that Motorola had to do, to better itself, let alone other brand of smartphones, that have a taste of their own. However, Motorola never disappoints with its products and it didn't, even this time. Yes, we are talking about the very specific model of Moto X Style. The latest to walk the ramp for Motorola, this phone is everything that people want for their price and time.
From the perspective of a non-technical point of view, Moto's latest X Style is something of a slight improvement from the previous Moto X Play. Sometimes, people might be even pushed to believe both are pretty much the same, but no, there's more to it than that. Of course, a new model must promise newer features and Moto X Style does deliver on that promise.
First up, the very basics of the physical structure. It is actually less compact compared to Moto X Play. So, if you are necessarily one of those very unusual people who would overlook internal quality for physical elements, then Moto X Style may not really be your style. It weighs at about 179 grams and and with a thickness of 11.1 millimetres - which is 10 grams and 0.2 millimetres greater than Moto X Play respectively. The screen size is about 0.2 inches greater than X Play, with a 5.7 inch screen, with protection provided by the ubiquitous Corning Gorilla Glass 3.
The dimensions of the Style is an improvement on the existing models of Moto X Play. It also carries a Nano SIM slot, just like the previous Moto X Play. The phone runs on the same OS as its predecessor, Android OS version 5.11. The battery life, however, is lesser than that of its predecessor, with a battery life of only about three thousand mAh, while X Play had a very optimal 3630 mAh. There are changes in the memory specifications, carrying with a 3 GB RAM, powered by an improved Snapdragon 808, and the storage capacity is improved to hold a maximum of 64 GB.
There are upgrades in the camera, as this phone has a 21 mega pixel primary camera with 2160 pixels, being the norm. The other features include its capacitative touch screen, with increased water resistance capacity. The communication facilities are also pretty impressive, with the ability to use 4G and 3G quite comfortably. Some othe quite impressive features include the fast battery charging capacity, with 34 percentage of charging done in just some 15 minutes. There's also noise cancellation features that come along with the sound system.
However, the one disadvantage that people might find difficult is the non-removable battery, which wouldn't ever trigger the phone repairing capabilities within us. It could be a big thing, thinking about the larger picture, but still people haven't become used to it, as of yet.
