Motorola Australia announced the availability of Moto G, Moto X Play and Moto X Style. After a strong start in the Australian market – Motorola AU is hoping that same result will happen, if not, better.
The Moto G is the low-end version of Play and Style. It packs a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, Adreno 306 GPU, 8GB/16GB storage, 1GB/2GB RAM, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front camera and 2470 mAh battery. It’s also IPX7 rated which means there’s no need to worry about dropping it into water.
*Available later in 2015 for MSRP of A$369.*
Moto X Play
The mid-range (if you sees it as a mid-range) Moto X Play offers a massive 3630 mAh battery which will easily get you through the day, and with its lower resolution and less power eater compared to its big brother – the Moto X Play is easily the best pick if you’re about the battery life and just enough power to run games and multi-task.
*Available from September 2015 from Vodafone for $5 a month on a $40 plan over 24 months.*
Moto X Style
This is Motorola’s flagship for this year and will have a bamboo back cover edition which is new for Australians. A generous 5.7-inch QHD edge-to-edge display at the front of the device, as well as dual front speakers for better sound experience. Thanks to some fast charging tweals – with Moto X Style, it should get an additional 10 hours of battery life in just 15 mins of charging.
Another big improvement over the Moto X is the camera. The 21-megapixel is supposedly one of the best cameras in the industry, so far, based from my tests, white balance and colour saturation are much improved but of course I can’t comment on it yet. There’s also a 5MP front facing camera for videos calls and selfies.
It’s packing a Snapdragon 808, Adreno 418, 3GB RAM and storage options of 16/32/64 GB. The use of Snapdragon 808 instead of Snapdragon 810 is most likely because of heating issues that it’s causing.
*Available from September 2015 from Vodafone for $3 a month on an $80 plan over 24 months.*
