Moto X Play

Coming Friday — Moto X Play

The latest iteration of Motorola’s successful Moto X series, the Moto X Play hits Canadian Stores Friday August 21. So what can we expect?

Moto X Play

 

For starters there’s no denying this phone’s ancestry..it looks like a Moto X with a big 5.5″ 1080p Full HD, 403 psi bright screen…the almost non-existent bezel makes it feel smaller. In this shot the front 5MP camera is taking a selfie of me taking a picture of it..below is one of the numerous choices of coloured back..the pink one will be exclusive to Best Buy at first..

The Moto x Play is powered by what Motorola calls its Mobile Computing System which  includes a 1.7GHz Qualcomm®Snapdragon 615 Octa-core CPU, Adreno 405 @ 550 MHz GPU, Natural Language Processor, Contextual Computing Processor and sports a huge 3630 mph that will provide up to 48 hours of use on a single charge and using Motorola’s Turbo Charge technology, 15 minutes on the charger will give 8 hours of battery life. It runs pure vanilla Android 5.x Lollipop with specialized Moto X apps tucked away in a special folder.

The rear camera also looks to be impressive..it is a 21MP f2.0 shooter that in my brief experience took nice looking pictures on a dreary day.
