The Moto X Play is another good smartphone for the money from Motorola. It like the Moto G, ticks all the right boxes and has only cut corners on some of the small things.
The Play is not a ‘flagship killer’ and doesn’t profess to be. It doesn’t have any real killer features – but instead provides a decent Android experience for at least £100 less than top-end rivals.
It’s close to being fantastic – only let down by a collection of small niggles with the camera – buttons and speakers but is still excellent value for a name-brand easy-to-buy smartphone.
Pros: decent battery life – solid camera – stock Android – helpful Moto apps – microSD card slot – good screen – splash proof
Cons: wobbly buttons – camera app too simple – camera struggles in low-light – chunky – no removable battery.
