Browse This Page

Motorola launched the Moto X Play in India today. The smartphone packs in a lot for a starting price of Rs 18,499 for the 16 GB variant.

The Moto X Play boasts of features that are sure to excite the masses. With a 21 MP camera, 3630 mAh battery, and expandable memory up to 128 GB, the Moto X Play is definitely worth its price. Other features include a 5.5 inch screen with Corning Gorilla Glass 3, Snapdragon 615, and an Octa-core 1.7 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU.

When comparing it to the OnePlus 2 that was released last month, we found that the Moto X Play has a lot more going for it. Take a look at the specs yourself.

As we can see above, the Moto X Play offers a lot more for a lot less. In the camera and battery department, the Moto X Play has the OnePlus 2 beat, at least on paper. Added to this is the the Moto X Play’s microSD card that allows up to 128 GB more memory, whereas the OnePlus 2 does not. The OnePlus 2 received some flak for its non-removable battery, non-expandable storage, and a regular full-HD display. However, the OnePlus 2 comes with a Snapdragon 810 processor which is far superior than the 615 in Moto X Play. While the former delivers on performance, the latter promises experience.

Both handsets are designed for comfort and offer similar resolution. However, with the Moto X Play starting at a fairly low price of Rs 18,499, and offering a variety of changeable colored back covers, the appeal is greater. Which smartphone would you choose? Let us know in the comments below.

I chose one plus 2 - 64 gb for following reason:

1) Moto x play has no Gyro that means no google cardboard. And I do not know how phone will make out it's orientation when we rotate the device without a gyro?.

2) Moto x has got more pixels in back cam but picture quality of one plus 2 is far better.

3) Reviews show moto x play gets little more warmer and drains out battery a little faster the one plus 2 so battery wise I rate them equal.

4) Although, moto x play's memory is expandable upto 128gb..I planned to use only it's internal mem plus another 32gb card which I do not need in one plus 2. I have never used a device more then it's initial configed memory so by the time my 64 gbs will be full, I'd be probably planning another phone.

5)One plus 2 has faster processor and more ram which means greater user experience.

6) One plus 2 has external touch buttons which means more screen space for content.

7) Looks wise both devices are equally hot and have swappable back covers.

8) One plus 2 is metal where as mot x play is good quality plastic.

9) Moto x play has got great moto assist software along with moto voice, I am sure that I'll find similar tools on play store.


Thanks

Specs wise, the OP2 is the Clear winner. However, the yet to be launched in india, Moto X style may pose as a valid threat, given the price is Right.

I guess this is the wrong Comparison ... Instead of the Moto X Play .. Do the Comparare in between the "Moto X Style " vs "Oneplus 2 " once Moto X Style releases .. Moto X Style is better compitator to Oneplus 2 .. "Moto X Play " is mid range device but still worthy to under 20 K budget .. ;)
