Moto X Play 5 Day use Report Card
By Prakrat Shkl | 7 Oct 2015
My 5 days with the X Play, 32 gb edition Black color. First thing you notice is that it looks stunningly beautiful. The processor is OK. The stock android provided is not very good. You cannot totally mute (sound & vibration both) from the dropdown menu bar. You have to go to settings to do it. Screen lock when pattern is opted, you can go on trying. It doesn’t say to send the new pattern to your e mail. Ascending ringtone is not there. Clearing open apps has to be done manually one by one. Data cannot be managed from the dropdown menu. The moment wifi is unavailable; the mobile sim data takes its place. Again to close it you have to go to settings. The audio tunes for ringtone are dumb. But thanks to moto migrate I could get all my data in to the x play. The battery, because of which I bought the phone, is really good. After 100% charge I had to start using x play at 4 am. That day I was out till 11:30 pm. full day I used it properly as I did my redmi 1s/Note 4, for calls, whatsapp, facebook net, games, and yes streaming videos also. In the night the battery still had enough juice approx 13%, to last for another 3.5 hours as the battery indicator said. This thing has won my heart. Now I don’t have to carry power pack everywhere, which was a pain in the back. The camera is very good. The only thing you need to keep in mind is to take pics in normal light & how to focus. The normal light pics are better than one plus one (which I compared) & at par with note 4.. For gaming I didn't get lots of time to play except 8 ball pool, zombies & some simple games. That was fine. The front facing speaker is what a relief, relief of not setting one of your fingers on the back to direct the sound in the front. sound is mono but loud enough. The display is very good. Call quality is crisp and clear and loud. As for now I think I made a good decision. But again I must say, this phone in its nude state looks very beautiful.

Moto x play has heating issue......................
By Jitender Bisht | 20 Sep 2015
Heating issue: This phone gets heat up pretty quickly. I find it very inconvenient, it is difficult to hold it in your hands for more than a few minutes. When I called up FlipKart customer care, they refused to take it back and said 45 to 48 degree Celsius temperature is normal as per MOTOROLA guidelines. The camera of this phone is good but pictures become blurry with a little zoom, which is strange !! I also did not like the single tray design to keep the sim cards and memory card. You also need to keep a pin with you to open the tray (Very inconvenient). The headsets I received with the phone are of very low quality these are the same headphones Motorola provide with MOTO E too, where is the difference. This is very expensive, this is a mid range phone and price should be under 15 k.

Great Phone. Honest Review
By Minervi Gupta | 18 Apr 2017
I bought this phone exactly a year back and my experience has been quite good. Here are the pros and cons: 1. Rear camera is good. especially in daylight. but not so good at night. Front camera is decent. 2. good storage space. even though i have installed so many apps, the phone does not hang or heat up that much. 3. Thanks to the turbo charger, the phones gets charged up in a hour or so. 4. Call quality is good. Loud and clear. 5. sound quality is ok. Could have been louder. 6. Alot of things like clearing open apps, mute etc. has to be done manually/ from the settings. But overall the phone looks good, works well, hasn't given me any trouble and has a good battery backup. The camera is not so bad either. In fact in daylight it's damn good. Display is good too. Value for money indeed. Not switching my phone was a year atleast :)
