Motorola is known as the brand that has first invented the cell phone and it is only justifiable if we expect the brand to come up with some of the class leading smartphones. The handset maker has revolutionise the smartphone market with its Moto series of handsets and Moto X is the high end device. Recently, the brand launched the third generation of Moto X devices, which looks like a the next smartphone of the year. Here is a brief overview of the handset for our readers to get acquainted with the handset.
Water-repellant: Motorola prides itself on the design of its Moto handsets, which have been water resistant since the very first generation. Motorola Moto X Play also comes with the same water-repellant design that can easily survive an accidental spill or even drop.
Turbo Charging: One of the most sought after feature today in smartphone happens to be a big battery or capability to charge it faster. Motorola Moto X Play comes with support for Turbo Charging right out of the box despite having a bigger 3630 mAh battery.
21 Megapixels camera: Motorola Moto X Play comes with a 21 megapixels primary camera on its rear panel. This camera has been accompanied by a dual tone LED flash and happens to be one of the most powerful in the market.
Corning Gorilla Glass 3: The Corning Gorilla Glass 3 layer is like a signature feature of Moto series of handsets and Moto X Play is no exception. This allows the handset to protect itself against scratches and accidental drops.
NFC: NFC (Near Field Communication), is being hailed as the future of all wireless connections in smartphone industry. It is but natural for the Motorola flagship to come with NFC and be a future-safe handset.
No Turbo Charger in box: Which manufacturer does include support for Turbo Charging in its smartphone and not include a quick charging brick in its box. It would not be wise to have the feature available in the handset and spend couple of thousand bucks extra for a turbo charging adaptor.
Matte back panel is dirt prone: The American handset maker has gone for a rubber textured, matte finish back panel. While this makes for a good and comfortable grip, it is also prone to getting dirty quickly.
