Moto X Play

Read full Moto X Play review

Leave the charger at home, Motorola's Moto X Play can go all day. And all of the next day

Key features:
  • 5.5-inch, 1080p display
  • 21-megapixel camera
  • 16/32GB storage (plus micro SD slot)
  • 3,630mAh battery
The Moto X Play is a mid-ranger that puts most other mid-rangers to shame. Typically Moto-like in appearance, it’s simple, durable and customisable.

While much larger than its predecessors, we’d be willing to bet that most users won’t mind that extra bit of heft. After all, the Play’s monstrous battery can keep going for an incredible two days of heavy use.

That’s even with the large and bright 5.5-inch, 1080p display to keep energised. Performance is slick enough for gaming, though we have experienced occasional lag. The primary 21-megapixel camera is the highly-detailed cherry on top.
