If one has been anticipating the arrival of Motorola’s 2015 flagship device, then the Moto X Style is what you have been waiting for. It is a nicely proportioned and relatively lightweight phone with a slight curvature to the rear panel that fits comfortably in the palm. The metal surround is substantial enough to feel secure when handling the phone and it accommodates the control keys comfortably at thumb or index finger level.
The Moto X Style also features water resistance and front-facing stereo speakers, but the majority of the fascia is taken up by the display. It’s a 5.7inch LCD with a QHD (1440×2560) resolution. This gadget will run Android 5.1 Lollipop.
It has a 1.8GHz Snapdragon 808 hexa-core setup (the MSM8992), processor complete with an Adreno 418 GPU and a couple of other onboard processors; a Natural Language Processor, and a Contextual Computing Processor. All of this is backed up by 3GB of RAM.
It has a battery at 3,000mAh and Motorola promises the fabled “all day” battery life. In terms of connectivity the Moto X Style has all your usually expected high-end options with 4G LTE (Nano-SIM), Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, micro USB GPS and NFC.
There are 16GB, 32GB and 64GB storage flavours with microSD support for cards up to 128GB. For photo lovers this phone has a 5mp front facing camera and a staggering 21mp at the rear side.
For about Shs2.1m for a less customised piece, this phone is worth every penny as one can buy it starting September directly from the moto maker.
