Moto X Play and Moto X Style are two smartphones that have been released by Motorola in July 2015. Both devices come with big sized displays along with some awesome specifications and today we’re going to compare them.


The Moto X Play measures 148x75x10.9mm and weights 169 grams. On the other hand, the Moto X Style is thicker as it measures 153.9×76.2×11.1mm and weights 179 grams. Both devices have a similar design, featuring a plastic back with some diagonal lines running across its surface, the edges are rounded and at the top, in the middle, sits a vertical strip that houses the rear camera and the logo. The color of the back, strip, frame and front panel can be customized via the Moto Maker program, but the shell of the Moto X Style can be also customized with one that is made of leather or natural wood.
