Motorola Moto X Play review: Time-saver edition

10 March, 2016
In many ways, the Moto X play is a sort of middle ground, half-step between the Moto G and the Moto X, but with a clear-cut stride towards the higher end of the scale.

What is this time saver edition?

Your "Coolness" and "Design/Quality" ratings are a joke and should be removed as they are based on no objective measures whatsoever. Completely arbitrary garbage ruining an otherwise great review process

Lovely phone, good speed, easy to handle, the mail issue in this phone is heating issue, if you use the phone more than an hour. the battery temperature are going up to 53 degrees. forced me to return the phone. the issue is mainly with the processes.

It would be much better if you add some kind of hint for those percentile ranking.A simple phrase above or under the percent will be much much better - maybe instead of "What's this?" you can have "Heavier than", it's almost the same in length. Or some kind of short legend in the same page, not in different one - like now.
As for the review itself - I've never been fan of those 1* - 5* (or 1 - 10 scores) ratings, because they are not unbiased, in my opinion. I really like your in depth reviews, because there is a lot of information and you let the readers to "rate the device" for themselves and not intrude your own score. But I do realize that, this is what lots of people are searching for - easy way to compare 2 phones (which 1* - 5* is).

for gamers like me a huge phone is not the issue if the battery is good. good job Motorola for creating this phone. =)

  • AnonD-511573

really like the new style. helps to see the important stuff quickly

  • AnonD-452580

For battery endurance the old style is beter than new one.

  • AnonD-205566

Just to be clear: al least on my phone, the graphic joining the percentile doesn't seem to work in any of these time-saver reviews. It might be just my phone though!

  • AnonD-205566

Great work guys! I think it would be clearer if you put "heavier than" or "lighter than" above the weight percentile, for example. It's a small addition that wouldn't add any bulk to the structure of this new style of reviews, and it would make them even more understandable. Heading to the one on the V10 now!

Something is wrong with this review. The display has been praised so much and I myself have a Moto X Play and the display is definitely quite good. Yet the rating given is only 2.50/5.0.

Also the battery life deserves a rating of at least 3.0/5.0 if not more. The fact that the higher battery capacity makes the phone thick should come under the design factor. The point about a Turbo Charger not being supplied along with the phone was valid earlier but now the Turbo Charger does come along with the phone at a lower price.

It sure affects thickness, but shouldn't that only be factored in the design score?

The display score should've been a little higher. Rest all is OK with me. The battery should really be delivering more with that much capacity but then again the 615 chipset ain't the most power efficient in the market.
