With the advent of OnePlus2 and Zenfone2 the Moto X suffered a laid back. Its desperate want of getting back in the game was made possible by the launching of the Moto X Play Edition.
Installed with a 5 MP frontal camera, a powerful 21 MP rear one and the ostentatious 3630 mAh battery the Moto X is quite well equipped even though it is not a flagship.
The 2nd Gen of Moto X came with 2 MP frontal and 13 MP rear cameras together with a 2300 mAh battery. So the Play can’t be called a successor to the 2nd Gen since Motorola has 2 variants now Style and Play editions.
One disadvantage of this Moto X Play is that it comes with mediocre Snapdragon 615 Octacore processor. As a result, in spite of the aggressive low pricing of both the 16 GB and 32 GB costing less than 20,000 bucks, it cannot give the flagships like OnePlus2 and Zenfone2 a tough competition. You have to wait 1-2 months for the Moto X flagship to emerge.
