Moto X Play 5.5" display.......

 

21MP F2.0 lens rear camera dual LED flash.  I can't wait to see these reviews.  I think the Moto X Play might be the phone for me depending on the reviews.  

 

EDIT: grabbed the specs below.  Maybe not for the Play for me.

Moto X Style Specs

Clearly the Style is the phone to get here based on those specs.  The Play doesn't have universal banding, less RAM, only 1080P capture.  The Style does have that front facing flash and more storage options with SD card support.  It'll all depend on that price.....

They should just swap screen/battery size with eachother and I'd grab the Style no doubt.  5.7" is just too big.  And I'd be downgrading in the CPU department from my M8 if I went with the Play.

Continues the trend of new smart phones where there is no optimal choice.  You always will be giving something up to get something else.  Why not just put 3600mAh into the Style?  Make it one to rule them all?  

 

No mention of OIS for the camera, no mention of Qi charging, it IS water repellent coated, so at least it's got that going for it.  But again, what's that price going to be!

Really like more the Moto X Play, but I wouldn't hold my breath to find it working for Sprint. Too bad, the Moto X Style 5.7 its a bit too much.

Hard to say until we see them all next to each other in hands on demos.  0.2 on screen, but the body of the Play might be almost as big as the Style all said and done.

If the Play doesn't even make it to Sprint then it would not matter much. Did they announce the price for either one?

Looks like the Style starts at $399 probably for the 16GB version.

Moto X Style will be $399 at Amazon, BestBuy.com and Motorola.com.  Moto G starts at $179 from the same retailers.

Definitely I like the idea of a Moto X option on Sprint this year. Waiting for an official confirmation though from Sprint that they will carry it, or at least allow it on their network.

Sadly, I can't find any mention or spec for Qi wireless charging.  That's become pretty pervasive in my life.  Oh well, now back to actual work for a while.

I find it a little odd that with the poor sales of the Nexus 6 which were mostly due to its enormous size, Motorola would take a risk on another giant device.

 

I like the overall specs of the devices but both are a pass for me. I only get ones I can use single handedly, which means no larger than 5.2" (which BTW was the size of last year's X).

Same here.  Also, no USB Type-C.  A little disappointed.

The X Play will be only available Europe, Latin America and Canada.

 

 

 

The Moto X Play will be available in August. Unfortunately, those who reside in the US won't be able to purchase the X Play, which is set to launch in Europe, Latin America and Canada.

No band 26?

 

Phone looks good for the price-point, main concern would be the battery size to handle that QHD display.

Two tenths of an inch is a deal breaker for you? That's about the width of this O. If you can live with 5.5, you can live with 5.7.

      Not sure if this has come up elsewhere, regarding the Moto X/M leak a few weeks ago (just move it if it has), but I can't seem to find any information on the SOC that is being reported. Only thing I seem to find is that it's Cat-6 compatible, but it doesn't appear that this chipset is used in any existing Sprint phones (or other US phone, seems only to be overseas) to get an idea of how well the radios work and what the connectivity would be like.

      Obviously, it would only have 2-band CA as well as other limitations, but do we have anything comparable to this to give us an idea if we should be watching for a mid-range phone that will be hitting above its weight class? Or should we all just suck it up and go with the next Nexus and the Snapdragon 82X? I'm really gunning for the 4.6" Moto, but if the reception is lacking (whether LTE or WiFi), or it's not Sprint LTE Plus compatible, I'd rather just not waste my time. I'm still rocking my 2013 Moto X, I just really wish it were LTE Plus at this point, with a little bit better RAM management.

    • With the new update Samsung Band Test1 brings up "NETWORK" menu(?).  I can get into the Band Selection by clicking the menu button in the top left. I have never used Band Selection menu before but that is what it says in the top center. I saw there were 7 different options I just figured I would let you know which seemed to work for me. No 5G in my area so I can't really test that part of the beta.
    • Band 5 LTE is being shut down to deploy NR in the CLR block. AT&T doesn't have free spectrum anywhere else. 
    • Well... They haven't been back to finish the tower. It's still looks the same today as it does when I took those pictures. According to someone from Reddit, which I shall take with a grain of salt, the crew made various safety violations on that tower and that they were probably kicked out of the market. So maybe that's why it remains unfinished? It does seem weird that they just up and left leaving wires just hanging. This is the photo I posted in /r/CellTowers   Side note: I noticed Band 5 LTE going away in some areas. A tower in Bittinger, MD previously had Band 5 LTE and now it no longer does. It still has band 2 and 17 and no aggregation, at least not with my phone. I think it used CA with my ZTE MF288 modem. The Band 2 has 15 MHz bandwidth and hits 80 Mbps no problem.
    • I finally got around to an actual test, in the same location, first with 5G enabled, 7.42 D/L and 0.07 U/l 45ms ping.  Then just a couple minutes later, after the reboot from switching to LTE/CDMA mode, 33.8 D/L and 6.31 U/L with a similar 44ms ping.  This was pretty far from the tower, but I've noticed similar differences in many locations.  Also, I have not had a verified connection to n71 in about 5 days, looking in the *#0011# screen, while a speedtest, or other data in use.
    • Another beta update to SignalCheck Pro is rolling out! Version 4.614b will appear on Google Play sometime over the next several hours. More 5G improvements, the accent color should be fixed, and several Samsung shortcut menus were added. Samsung users, please try all of the new shortcuts and let me know which ones are useful and what they lead to. Thank you!
