Now, to dominate both the high and low ends of the mobile market, Motorola has released a new trio of smartphones- Moto X Style, Moto X Play, and Moto G (Third Edition). Moto X Style will be known as the Moto X Pure Edition and will work with any carrier. Moto Play comes with a longer 48-hour battery life and a smaller screen. And, the company released a new third generation of Moto G with an impressive 13MP camera.
With these phones, Motorola is moving ahead with the “pure” Android ideology that rejects the bloatware and ships unforked version of Android with its smartphones. These phones run on Android Lollipop and will receive Android M upgrade later this year.
Lenovo claims that Moto X style is the world’s fastest charging phone that charges to give 10 hours of battery life in just 15 minutes. This super-fast charging is done using the TurboPower mode. The device comes with a 3,000maAh battery underneath. According to the company, world’s fastest charging phone charges 50 percent faster than Samsung Galaxy S6. In general, company’s new flagships Moto X Style and Moto X Play are Motorola’s answer to Samsung Galaxy S6 and Apple iPhone 6– at a lower price.
Moto G 8GB model costs just $179 and is completely waterproof and its 5-inch touchscreen works just fine even when it’s drenched.
