Motorola’s Event

moto-x-style-announcement On 29 July’15, Motorola threw in an interesting surprise for this year, as the Moto X now has not one, but two successors – the Moto X Style (Moto X Pure) and Moto X Play. The pair looks similar enough in terms of style and exterior, but hardware differences are pretty big and each has its own niche. While the Moto X Style is aiming for top-level performance, the X Play is all about battery life.
