Weekly poll results: Moto X Style universally loved, OnePlus 2 gets 2-to-1 positive votes
Motorola seems to have struck gold with the Moto X Style, judging by the opinion of the vast majority of you, our readers. Gathering a huge 87% of upvotes, the smartphone may have broken the record for positive feedback, we're not entirely sure.
Record-breaking or not, the numbers paint a bright future for the Moto X Style, provided, of course, that fan love translates into actual sales. With the $399 price tag, which gets you proper high-end hardware, we don't see why it shouldn't.
The company's all-time top-seller, the Moto G, now in its third generation, appears set to continue generating sales numbers that will make competitors jealous. Sure, the 68% approval rate is not as exciting as the one of the Moto X Style, but the Moto G was always meant to speak to a wider audience, and thus make it to a lot more pockets.
The Moto X Play, the truly unexpected little X brother, which Motorola kept a secret until the very last moment, has managed to appeal to the majority of you as well. Splitting the gap between the flagship Moto X Style and the affordable Moto G, the Play is hot enough to two thirds of you - a reasonable compromise between price and features is always appreciated, and an inclination towards battery endurance certainly helps its case.
The second-gen "flagship killer" comes last on this list, but just because the Motos had it outnumbered. With a 2-to-1 positive score, the OnePlus 2 is also shaping up to be a success, though there's always the matter of availability and questionable marketing practices, which may hurt its sales figures.

The new Motorola phones use TFT LCD not AMOLED.

Maybe even more important than the missing features of the OP2 is the horrendous customer service / support that OnePlus Plus is infamous for. Their forums are full of it and have seen it play out. Not to mention their OS is completely unproven.

I'm confused - I thought they switched from AMOLED to IPS LCD?
