Reviews for the Motorola Moto X Style

86% Motorola Moto X Style Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Just your style. The Moto X Style is the flagship of Lenovo's American subsidiary, and can be customized even more than its sister models. It also sports stronger hardware and a better camera. Its 5.7-inch screen makes it quite bulky. Despite all that, there is still room for improvement.
75% Not compelling enough; Moto X Play offers better value proposition
Source: Tech2.in.com English
Motorola had delivered a value for money product with the Moto X Play, but with the Moto X Style, we cannot say the same thing for certain. The Moto X Style is a good phone in terms of user experience, display quality, overall performance and camera; but there are shortcomings in the form of battery life.

Review: Moto X Style (Pure Edition)
Source: Gizmag English
If you want the very best that smartphone technology can offer in 2015, the Moto X Style isn't it. But on the other hand, if you have a limit of $400 to spend, then nothing else on sale at the moment is likely to give you as much bang for your buck. Motorola looks to be aiming for the top of the mid-range (or perhaps the budget end of the high-end), and it largely hits its target.

80% Moto X Style
Source: Think Digit English
The Moto X Style can be considered as the big screen alternative to the Nexus 5X, given there similar pricing. That said, the phone provides lesser performance and battery life, which means that the Nexus is the better choice, unless you want a bigger display.

80% So near and yet so far
Source: PC Pro English
The big thing in the favour of the Motorola Moto X Style is its price. SIM-free from the Motorola website, the phone starts at £399 for the 32GB model, which makes it £50 less expensive than the similarly sized Google Nexus 6P, and only £20 more expensive than the 32GB Nexus 5X. This should be enough on its own to push the Moto X Style firmly onto your shortlist; it may not be the best, most complete smartphone around, but it sure is good value.

The Motorola Moto X Style is a phone that gets you the sort of specs you might end up paying £100-200 more for from another company. It’s a great deal, especially if you’re out for a big a screen as your hands can handle and don’t mind missing out on extras such as a finger scanner.

80% A big phablet with a lot to offer
Source: T3 English
If you're looking for a big screened smartphone with a decent slug or power, capable camera and reasonable price tag then look no further - the Moto X Style is the phone for you. It may not have the glitz and glam of more expensive phablets such as the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+, but it's not exactly lacking in terms of features.

80% A great choice for a large screen phone but isn't necessarily the best
Source: PC Advisor English
If you're looking for a big screen phone, the Moto X Style is a great choice. It's got great specs across the board and it cheaper than rivals like the Nexus 6P and Galaxy S6 Edge+. We love the screen, stock Android and cameras. However, it really comes stands out when using the Moto Maker to customise it which costs more. With a screen only slightly smaller and a fingerprint scanner the OnePlus 2 is the spanner in the works here at £289 for the 64GB model.

90% Moto X Style review
Source: Trusted Reviews English
If you want a well priced, super-fast phone benefiting from a slick design and sharp display, I can thoroughly recommend the Moto X Style. It doesn’t confuse with a bucket-load of added features, but it does, it does well. There’s a lot to say for Motorola’s approach to Android too. It’s clean, simple, fast – and as Google intended. With Marshmallow on the way, this is even more important.

The Motorola Moto X Style is a great smartphone and I thoroughly enjoyed using it during the review period. It's not a handset with universal appeal, for those looking for a big screen flagship at a decent price the X Style is an excellent option. I do wish the battery life was better, but it's not hugely different to other 2015 flagship phones on the market so it's almost acceptable.

70% Falling a Bit Short
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
The Motorola Moto X Style is far from the home run we were expecting, which is quite disheartening. All the ingredients are present on paper but somehow they just don't come together, and the end result leaves you wanting more. We like that the company has stuck with the philosophy of 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' when it comes to the design and has only made things better by adding metal to the construction. The phone also checks all the boxes when you consider expandable storage, 4G LTE, general performance, and a good display.

The Motorola Moto X Style is a good flagship alternative and, priced at £399, you're getting a lot of phone for your money. That price sets this handset at almost £200 less than top-flight Samsung devices at this size and there's no doubting the appeal in that.

Moto X Style (Pure Edition) – Second Opinion
Source: Android Authority English
Motorola has to be given credit for providing a pretty good smartphone at a decent price point. While the latest flagship device is more expensive that previous generations used to be, not only are you getting a more premium product this time around, but the Moto X Pure Edition is still cheaper than most other competing high-end flagship smartphones out there. The best part about this smartphone is that it is all about choice, and that is what makes for a very compelling smartphone.

Moto X Style (Pure Edition) Vs Apple Iphone 6S Plus
Source: Android Authority English
The Moto X Pure Edition is easily one of the most affordable flagship smartphones currently out there, and for just $400, you can get yourself a completely customized device. The iPhone 6s Plus, on the other hand, with set you back $750 for the 16 GB base model, and pricing goes up from there, based on your storage needs. The iPhone 6s Plus is definitely not cheap, but you do have the option of picking it up at a subsidized rate through network carriers, an option that isn’t available with Moto X Pure Edition.

Moto X Style / Pure Edition vs Nexus 6
Source: Android Authority English
So there you have it for this in-depth look at the Moto X Pure Edition vs Nexus 6! If you want the purest Android experience possible, the guarantee of quick updates, and a large canvas on which to play on, then the Nexus 6 continues to be a great choice, especially given the price drop associated with the launch of its successor. On the other hand, the Moto X Pure Edition also promises a similar software experience, with some great enhancements, along with the availability of microSD expansion. The Moto X Pure Edition holds the edge by virtue of being the newer smartphone, but regardless of which way you decide to go, you are going to come out a winner.

Motorola Moto X Style / Pure Review
Source: Techspot English
At this price, one of the big competitors to the Style is the OnePlus 2, available for $330-390 for its 16/64 GB models. The two phones are similar in size, but the Style comes with a larger, better display, a superior camera, essentially identical performance, fewer software issues, expandable storage, NFC, and fast charging. In my eyes this makes the Style a clear winner, especially as you don’t need to bother with OnePlus’ annoying invite system.

90% Motorola Moto X Style Review: In Depth
Source: Recombu English
Motorola’s Moto X Style is a solid all-round flagship phone that may not excite with original or stand-out features, but has plenty to offer all kinds of users. Want to stay entertained or do the odd bit of graft on the move? That spacious Quad HD screen and slick performance will satisfy. Always on the road? Luckily you have long battery life to keep you connected. With little to frustrate beyond the occasional photo let-down, this is one of the best Moto flagships of recent times.

Stunning, Super-specced and, yes, Stylish
Source: Androidbeat English
It really does feel that, with the Style (or ‘Pure Edition’, if you’re in the USA), Motorola has fully rounded off the vision for the original ‘X’. The form factor, capabilities, software load-out, imaging, and media playback, are all stunning, especially for the price. In the UK, the Moto X Style retails at £360 including VAT, significantly undercutting a number of big-brand competing flagships. With the caveat that you’ll need to be prepared to do a little ‘plugging-in’ each day for ‘Turbo Power’ top-ups, it’s hard to think of a better all round package than the Moto X Style and it’s terrific value overall. Recommended.

Moto X Style and Moto G (3rd gen) hands-on
Source: GSM Arena English
The Moto X and Moto G are the names that brought Motorola back in the game, winning quite a lot of fans in the process. They have just reached their third generation and Motorola is sticking to its established formula for success - pure-Android approach, excellent handling and a nice little extra here and there. Motorola managed to create a signature touch of its own, while staying as close to pure Google intentions as possible. This, combined with timely software updates has earned the company a number.

Comment

Model: User friendly and stylish, the Motorola Moto X Style is a capable smartphone packed into a palm-friendly package. Ergonomics was a priority during the design phase. The curved back and dimple provides good grip, while the chassis feels solid in hand. Motorola has implemented a water repellent nano-coating delivering a worry free spill-proof experience. Display on the Motorola Moto X Style is a bright and vivid 5.7 inch IPS LCD panel with 520 PPI pixel density. Images are clear and crisp, while the entire front plane is protected by Gorilla Glass 3. There are two base model finishes to choose from; a black lens/dark grey frame with black soft feel inlay and a white lens/silver frame with bamboo inlay.

The Android 5.1.1 Lollipop device comes with a Snapdragon 808 processor, which consist of a dual-core Cortex-A57 and a quad-core Cortex-A53 chip. It is supported by 3 GB of RAM, an Adreno 418 GPU, and three storage options consisting of 16, 32 or 64 GB. Cameras on the Motorola Moto X Style are a solid performing 21 mega-pixel rear shooter and a 5 mega-pixel front-shooter. Other features on the device are stereo speakers, Bluetooth 4.1, A-GPS, NFC, and microSD support. The Motorola Moto X Style comes with a fast chagrining non-removable battery rated at 3000 mAh. 

Qualcomm Adreno 418: Integrated graphics card that supports OpenGL ES 3.1 and DirectX 11 Feature Level 11_1 (with hardware tessellation). Compared to the Adreno 420, the performance of the 418 is about 20 percent slower (at 600 MHz). Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
808 MSM8992:

High-end ARM SoC with 6 CPU cores (2x Cortex-A57 and 4x Cortex-A53) and an Adreno 418 GPU. Manufactured in a 20 nm HPM process.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.


Motorola: The original company Motorola Inc was split in 2011. Motorola Mobility got the smartphone range and was taken over by Google in 2012 and by Lenovo in 2014. The Motorola smartphone brand continues for the time being. There are still a lot of reviews on Motorola Mobiles with average ratings.
82.67%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
