Moto X Style Comes Loaded With 21MP Snapper—Is It Worth The Hype?

According to Jim Wicks, design head at Motorola, Moto X Style has the best camera ever. It was released along with the Moto X Play today. Both these phones come with 21MP cameras. To find out how it fares against the good camera phones we have already seen, we ran a test. Here is what we found:

In a benchmark test for the 21MP camera lens on the handset, we found the image detailing under bright light conditions praiseworthy. The lens is powerful but doesn’t work so well on low light pictures.

Motorola X Style Comes Loaded With 21 MP SnapperMotorola had in fact added the wide angle selfie camera as well as HDR mode on its Moto G, but these two aspects don’t feature on the Moto X Style. 

The glitch with Moto X Style is that selfie shots without flash don’t turn out the way we would want them to.  

Here is what we had reported about this phone earlier: Moto X Third Gen To Stun With Front Camera Flash, Expected In White And Gold

Moto X Style Features

Meanwhile, the latest release from Motorola features a 5.7-inch QuadHD display for high quality functioning. Image quality is good because the screen has a density of 515ppi pixels. Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 SoC, it does not have the hitches of the Snapdragon 810.

Instead, it is combined with a 1.8GHz hexa-core processor and 3GB RAM, which should result in faster working.

Designed with the Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, teh Moto X Style comes with the company’s unique products such as Moto Voice, Moto Assist and Moto Display.

The Moto X Style will come in 16/32/64GB storage variants. Price of the Moto X Style has not been revealed yet.… Read the rest

 We also sniffed out the Moto G 3rd generation on Flipkart with a list of its specifications. However, it was revealed that the listing was only a matter of accident. As per the specs though, you may expect the new Moto G to have 8GB storage onboard and will run on 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 610 processor.  2 GB RAM will account for quick boot speeds on the 5/5.2 incher display that comes with full HD resolution. In addition, expect 4G LTE support and a polycarbonate style body in white hue.

What Motorola Says?

Motorola has also put this text up on its website- “Yes. We’re in a relationship with our phone. We feel lost without it. We trust them with our most personal questions, photos, stories and secrets. They never leave our side. But shouldn’t all that care and devotion you show be returned?”

Motorola is expected to make a great move in the smartphone market by introducing two handsets at the same time. According to the company statement made this week, both Moto G and Moto X are slated for an official release on July 28. While the company is not interested in revealing any other update about the handsets, leaked images of the phones give some hint regarding their features, reports Techradar.

Moto G photos have been already doing round in web for some time and now sources have also revealed some pictures of Moto X. The leaked image indicates the phone to have a similar design to that of 2015 Moto G and both the handsets come with a metallic trim highlighting the back. Yet, the texture of the back panels are not the same and Moto X is said to have metallic bezel.

While the leaked images do not give a proper impression of the front side, the handset is reported to feature an impressive 5.2-inches Quad HD display. Not only that, the flagship phone is also reported to be made powerful with Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB RAM and 16/32 GB storage. 16MP rear camera is also mention worthy.

New Moto X May Feature Rear Fingerprint Scanner: Report

Buzz has it that Motorola is coordinating with Google to develop a fingerprint scanner technology for the upcoming Google Nexus 6. However, now the official stance has made it clear that the next Nexus phone will not have this feature. On another end, fresh rumors have emerged stating that an upcoming Moto X variant will soon arrive. This one will be loaded with a fingerprint scanner, according to what was spotted in an early pre-production model for Moto X.

This has been spotted in an assembly line of the product. What is surprising is that the scanner is placed behind the hood–under the camera sensor.

Pre-production model of the Moto X spotted with rear fingerprint scannerPerhaps it is too early to confirm this as the scanner that was ditched at the last minute on the Nexus 6.

Looking at the past, Motorola initiated the tradition of fingerprint scanners with the Atrix 4G model about half a decade ago. With Android M aiding fingerprint scans in the current time it will only be apt for Motorola to feature it once again!

Google Nexus 6 Release Date to Happen Early: Moto X Sales Dies Down

Amid much pre-launch buzz and launch furor, the Moto X is seeing a dip in sales. So much so that Motorola has decided to lengthen the 70 dollars sale offer on all models of the Moto X. This is a gimmick to attract more buyers, given the poor performance that the X accounted for.

With the ongoing price slash, the Moto X 16 GB variant is priced at 329 dollars while the 32 GB model comes for 379 dollars only.

With this unanticipated poor performance in sales, we are left depressed on the quality of the upcoming Google smartphone. We expect the giants to launch the new phone soon. Probably, the Nexus 6 too can see unveiling way ahead of the anticipated date.

A report from IBT Times says, “The Nexus 6 could come with a release date following in the immediate weeks, most likely bearing the Android 4.5, some high-end components on the inside and a reasonable pricing.”

Google Nexus 5 vs. Moto X: The Processor Is Pitted Against Better Battery!

It is raining Android phones out there and for those wishing to own one, there are choices aplenty. Ever since its launch, Google’s Nexus 5 has been popular, closely followed by Moto X launched by US Google-owned Motorola. Both the devices have decent specs are are pretty affordable too. Here is what makes them stand apart.  

Display

The Nexus 5 has a 5-inch, 1920 x 1080 IPS LCD display, which gives it a density of 445 PPI. Added to this is the sharp display which gives a fantastic viewing experience while watching movies and photos. On the other hand, the Moto X has a slightly smaller screen with a 4.7-inch 1280 x 720 AMOLED display leading to a density of 316 PPI which looks sharp enough while holding it a normal viewing distance.

Processor

On the power front, the Nexus 5 leaves the Moto X far behind with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 2.3 GHz quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM, while the Moto X comes packed with a 1.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro dual-core processor with 2GB of RAM.

Cameras

The Moto X is back in the game here with its 10MP camera which races ahead of the Nexus 5’s 8MP camera. However, both have HDR modes and can shoot at up to 1080p video. Moto X’s camera offers more pixels for still photography at 2MP, while the Nexus 5’s camera offers the same at 1.3MP. 

Battery Life

If you are looking at both the phones and battery life is something that is the clincher, then pick the Moto X. It easily gets up to 4-8 hours more on a single charge when compared to the Nexus 5.

Software

This is one aspect where both the phones differ slightly. The Google Nexus 5 is powered by Google’s Android 4.4 KitKat. The Moto X runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (that can be upgraded to KitKat). … Read the rest
