Moto X Play

Originally reviewed by Max Parker 26 August 2015

Great mid-range 5.5-inch phone with superb battery life

Key features:
  • 5.5-inch, 1080p display
  • 21-megapixel camera
  • 16/32GB storage (plus micro SD slot)
  • 3,630mAh battery
A surprise package from Motorola, the Moto X Play is an astonishingly-good mid-range handset. Instantly recognisable as a Motorola-made smartphone, you can swap out the front and back panels, as well as the trim.

The 5.5-inch, 1080p display is large and bright, but the X Play has enough in the tank to keep it going (and going). Its 3,630mAh battery can provide an incredible two days of heavy use before it needs powering up again.

Performance is slick enough for gaming too, while the main 21-megapixel camera is more detailed than you’d typically expect from a phone at this price.
