2015 was a pretty good year for smartphones, as we’ve seen many manufacturers releasing some awesome handsets. Today we’re going to talk about the One Plus X and Moto X Play, two devices that were released last year and which come with some pretty good specifications.


The OnePlus X device measures 140x69x6.9mm and weights only 138 grams, while its back is built by either fire-baked Ceramic, Onyx black glass or Champagne white. On the other hand, the Moto X Play is thicker, as it measures 148x75x10.9mm and weights 169 grams, while its back is made of plastic and has diagonal lines running across the surface, while in the middle, on the vertical, was placed a strip which contains the camera and logo.


The OnePlus X has a 5-inch AMOLED display supporting a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels at 441 and it is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The Moto X Play comes with a bigger IPS LCD display with a size of 5.5-inches, which supports the same resolution of 1920×1080 pixels, but the pixel density is lower at 403 ppi and it’s also protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

Processors, Graphics Cards & RAM

The OnePlus X device features a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset, a quad-core Krait 400 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, an Adreno 330 graphics card and 3GB of RAM. The Moto X Play has a Qualcomm MSM8939 Snapdragon 615 chipset, an octa-core processor formed from a quad-core Cortex A53 processor clocked at 1GHz and a quad-core Cortex A53 processor clocked at 1.7GHz, an Adreno 405 graphics card and only 2GB of RAM.


Both devices come with a microSD card slot supporting a card with a maximum capacity of 128GB. However, when it comes to the internal storage, these devices are a bit different, as the OnePlus X comes in a variant of 16GB, while the Moto X Play is available in two variants of 16GB and 32GB.


The primary camera of the One Plus X has 13MP and it is weaker than the primary camera found on the Moto X Play, which supports 21MP. Both cameras have similar features such as autofocus, geo-tagging, touch focus, HDR, panorama and more.

However, the One Plux X device has a better secondary camera of 8MP, which is definitely superior to the 5MP secondary shooter from the front side of the Moto X Play.


The One Plus X and Moto X Play have non-removable batteries. The One Plus X has a battery of 2525 mAh and it is weaker than the one found on the Moto X Play, that has 3630 mAh. However, let’s not forget that the Moto X Play has a bigger display size and it was expected that it will feature a bigger battery, as the display is the top consumer when it comes to tablets and smartphones.
