Verdict

The Moto X Play is not a power user’s smartphone, given the lacklustre processor performance, but it’s a well balanced smartphone that not many make today and Motorola has for long been known for. The company’s service support, though not the best, is improving by the day, and in the sub-20k segment, this phone may be the best for anyone but a power user.
