Make no mistake that the Moto X Style and the Moto X Play are just in time for the debut on the much more renown flagship killer, the OnePlus 2, and frankly, might just usurp the OnePlus 2 at it's own flagship murdering game.
Indeed, all you good, Motorola-loving folks, Moto X is back, and this time, two is better than one.
For those wondering about these underdog flagships, make no mistake that the Moto X Style and the Moto X Play are just in time for the debut of the much more renown flagship killer, the OnePlus 2.
Where Moto X Play is made (obviously) for play, it will have THE whopping 48 hour battery life that we have all been begging for. That’s right, folks, 3630 mAh power, and boy do we intend to use every bit of it. It’s also water-repellent for you little mermaids (and mermen). It has the standard 5.5-inch full HD display (because if you don’t have that, like literally, what are you doing?), and a Snapdragon processor that promises to be speedy. Again, as it’s titled “Play”, its obviously more marketed to those that smell like teen spirit - so do not fear, millennials, the camera is glorious! We are looking at a 21 megapixel back shooter and a 5 megapixel front snapper.

But as cool as that is, I wouldn’t be writing about it if it wasn’t for the price. Because this bad boy has a price tag of £279 (it’s around $435). So obviously, it is in the price range to be serious competition to the OnePlus 2. For those wondering why I used pounds first, it’s because the dear Play will never make it to the American market. When it hits shelves at the end of August, it will be in Europe, the UK, Latin America, Australia and Canada only.
Now for all the sexy, sleek people in the back, Motorola got you covered, too, boo. That’s why the Moto X Style has various color and material combinations, including Saffiano leather and real wood finishes, because, duh, you real classy.
Aside from your super sexy Saffiano, the Style will sport a 5.7-inch QHD screen (because you can afford the difference, obviously). It will have sexier borders, bezels, and be a bit more slender.

Because your selfie game is fierce, there will be a 5 megapixel front camera, but it has wide-angle lens and selfie flash, because you’re worth it. On the back, it’s the same 21 megapixel snapper that we see on the Play.
Under the hood, you have this spiffy little gizmo called TurboPower that gives 10 hours of battery in just 15 minutes of charge. Motorola is really trying to convince us it’s the “world’s fastest charging smartphone”, or whatever (PS, the poorer people that by the Play will also get this feature, but only 8 hours of battery for the 15 minutes plugged in).
It’s super premium, so it’s super late. That’s why it comes out in September, with a bigger price tag of £359.
