Presentation of the new Motorola smartphones - Moto X Play and Moto X Pure Edition

Model Moto G immediately fell in love with users since its first generation: $ 200 by getting excellent average performance with excellent speed and fresh updates from Google. In the second generation of this all over and added another memory card support, which is lacking in some of the first owners of G, and that just yesterday it was announced the third generation. I think that would be appropriate to compare it to last year’s version.

To begin with appearance. Design Moto G 3rd Gen is significantly different from the previous generation. In addition, you have great opportunities for its customization, will be sold separately removable cover in various colors.

Updated chipset, Snapdragon 400 was replaced with a more recent 410 th.

There was moisture protection standard IPX7 – a smartphone can be immersed in water to a depth of one meter, where he was able to spend an hour. In addition to this supposed protection against splashes, drops, etc.

Display, judging by the performance, not much has changed, the same HD-resolution and IPS-matrix, but experience suggests that the difference can be significant, and even need to compare machines live to tell.

As part of the changes in size and not very noticeable, but the new model has become a bit thicker (11.6 mm vs. 11 mm) and heavier (155 grams against 149 grams). However, and increased battery capacity, so the extra 0.6 mm and 6 grams can be forgiven, given that the growth capacity amounted to nearly 20% (2470 mAh vs. 2070 mAh).

The smartphone runs on fresh Android 5.1.1, add Motorola’s minimal, with each of them, they say, “in the subject.”

On sale will be available two versions of the device: 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of internal memory for $ 180 with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal over $ 220. Prices are approximate, but should be guided on them. Optional models are available with support for two SIM-cards. If I understand correctly, some countries have already started selling smartphone. Also, optionally, in addition to interchangeable sockets will be available and laptop cases.

What can I say other than state employees got better. Key innovations in my opinion – is the emergence of support LTE, a version with 2 GB of RAM and moisture protection standard IPX7.

Initially, I assumed that the word «Play» in the model name is responsible for its gaming component, in fact it turned out that we are talking about the battery life of the device.

If you look at its features, you will notice that the filling is not quite flagship: the resolution “only» FHD, chipset not from the flagship 800 Series, etc. However, this smartphone is not getting worse. In my opinion, the Motorola just realized that now chase the top-end performance is not: even the most productive capacities toys Snapdragon 615 enough for the eyes, and the FHD-permit background QuadHD only positively affect the smoothness of the games and the battery life.

Pay attention to the design of the model, its back cover is made of a special beautiful textured plastic, waterproof, thanks to him, the device looks great, at least at first glance. In addition, thanks to Moto Maker is available a lot of different colors and body options.

Like the Moto G, X Play is protected against water, but only according to the standard IP52.

This emphasis on smartphone battery life: it established a 3630 mAh battery capacity and added technology QuickCharge (here it is called TurboCharge, but the essence does not change). The manufacturer notes that the 15-minute charging time will prolong the operation of the apparatus for 8 hours, however, more precise figures does not.

If you look at the size of the diagonal of the screen, it is immediately obvious that this is a typical representative of PHABLET. Despite the fact that the resolution a little “saved», FHD still looks decent at such sizes of the screen and as I said above, a positive effect on the work.

Presentation of the new Motorola smartphones - Moto X Play and Moto X Pure Edition

In fact, the presentation material about the Motorola prepares Eugene Vildyaev, but, to be honest, just could not help but write a small part about the new Moto X. The fact that this smartphone, I’m talking about the Moto X Pure Edition, He excited me as much as smartphones are not worried for a long time. Perhaps the reason for it pass the first and second series of devices (I did not use any Moto X 1 gen, or Moto X 2 gen), but the more experience and expectations of future output. So why am I so interested past the announcement of Moto X? Who will tell.

Firstly, it is balanced, attention to detail specifications of the new Moto X, where each item in the list is selected for the smartphone was better in general, and not for any other purposes. There are no empty race for the newest platform, the largest amount of RAM, and other such things.When a diagonal 5.7 ” the company decided to use for the flagship QuadHD-resolution, which is quite reasonable, with a keen eye FullHD certain categories of users already make out the grain. Platform – proven in the LG G4 chipset Qualcomm Snapdragon 808, fast, stable, and thus is not heated so clearly as the flagship – 810 built-in memory options of 16, 32 or 64 gigabytes, and the smartphone has a slot for a memory card, which will significantly increase the volume or the save by less than 16 GB model and acquiring her card on 32 or 64 gigabytes. 3 GB of RAM – is also quite adequate, I personally have not yet encountered situations on Android-smartphone, when this was not enough RAM.

Second – update the camera. The Moto X second-generation camera was just a good, average, the new Moto X can expect a significant improvement in this respect. Of course, there is still no optical image stabilization, but the 21 megapixel model in the new sensor and aperture f / 2.0 should lead to a good result, if not immediately after the start, then a couple of firmware for sure. The front facing camera is also high aperture (f / 2.0), with oversized pixels (1.4um), its resolution of 5 MP – at least enough for the flagship 2015.

Thirdly, and this is a very important point – the net and the promise of Android 5.1.1 update release as soon as possible after the submission by Google. It is about Moto X Pure Edition. Constant work with smartphones on different shells seriously tired and in a sense it would be desirable in the end, sooner or later, just stop on a clean system, without any impurities. All the more so with the fifth version of Android finally got a neat and common to all the pieces of Material Design, an application is also quite a good pace to this updated design, and use the machine in pure “Android” is now really nice and comfortable.

Fourth, rapid charging. In Moto say that in 15 minutes can charge the smartphone by 35 percent, while the capacity of the battery in the device – 3000 mAh. It is a pity that the capacity is not close to 4,000 mAh, but smartphones from Motorola good optimized in terms of energy, and as a whole, using the flagships of many accustomed to the constant recharging (I’m sure), so not the most capacious battery is not for everyone Read is a problem.

Finally, the most important point – design and body materials. It is enough to say two words – Moto Maker. C using this service, you create your own smartphone, choosing a design from a combination of different colors and finishing material and texture of the battery cover. Here Moto much faster than everyone else. What we have today in the segment in terms of unusual materials aids? Smartphone LG G4 with lids of soft (calf) and tight skin. The first wear out too quickly, because the skin is very thin layer is applied to the plastic surface and easily abraded, the second is practical and comfortable, but not tactile sensations closer to the skin and the plastic with imitation leather surface, which likes to use the company Samsung. “The Chinese» Xiaomi Mi4 and Mi Note. For Mi4 have removable covers for Mi Note bamboo version. In the first case, the veneer, it feels like something similar to a tree, but still not enough, the second cover more than natural, but unfortunately no other option but bamboo is not. There are OnePlus 2 with lids of different wood (veneer and, judging by sales) and Kevlar fiber. Everything. What does the new Moto X? Covers of leather in different colors (you can choose the color), and it will be leather, thick, wear it and takes the form of the old material, but we are talking about the natural deterioration of the skin, rather than erasing its plastic cover, as in the case LG G4 (with all my love to this unit, it is now my main!). Caps made of wood, you also choose the type of wood, color, texture, and get to the exit cover of the tree feels.Perhaps the realization here is similar to what is done for Mi4 or will OnePlus 2, but the tactile feel of the Moto X of the second generation with wooden lids are completely different. It will also be textured plastic and probably has some other options. In any case, even wood and leather to the realization, in which the materials were presented for the Moto X 2 gen, enough to name the new Moto X best smartphone in terms of design among Android-devices. Just because buying it, you can choose your own design and it’s very cool!

Cost Moto X Pure Edition (or Style, another name) will be $ 400 for 16 GB version. If you compare it to the performance, design and price also presented a July 28 smartphone OnePlus 2 (yes, there is $ 390 64GB model, but there is no slot for a memory card), a reasonable question, and who is the real “killer flagships” ? And I think the right answer is not in favor of “Chinese”. Personally, I would almost certainly have decided for themselves what to buy yourself a new Moto X, as soon as possible, to make its main unit. So it is good, in my opinion.
