What Makes the Motorola Moto X Style One of a Kind?

Sitting as one of the top new entries in Motorola’s 2015 line-up, the Motorola Moto X Style (or Moto X Pure Edition if you’re in the US) blends high-end specs with a sleek build. The coolest aspect about this smartphone is that it still comes in at a price that won’t make your wallet cry. It isn't the flashiest or one of the most feature-laden Android phones out there right now,, but it’s certainly one of the best.

Motorola has again made a fantastic device – following on from the equally impressive Moto G (2015) and Moto X Play – by keeping things simple, tuning all the elements so they work perfectly well together and offering buyers the chance to customise their phone with Moto Maker.

Motorola has also stuck to a familiar design blueprint with the Moto X Style. The final look is both functional and sleek and in many ways, the Moto X Style will make you feel like you have a grown-up Moto G. Plastic is replaced with metal around the rims, the buttons are a little less loose and the rubbery plastic sits flush around the back.

Unlike the Moto G, however, this is bigger in size. Even though it has a larger 5.7-inch display, it still has a smaller footprint than the iPhone 6S Plus.

If you’re coming to the Moto X Style from a smaller device then it will take some getting used to its features. Reaching to the corners of the display with one hand is virtually impossible – unless, you’re a basketball whizz.

The addition of a metal rim adds rigidity, but it doesn’t feel quite as solid as last year’s Moto X. This seems to be one of the minor changes made for in order for the price to come down.
You can try flipping the phone over and it will still bulge out towards the middle. It’s about as far away from the flat backs of the iPhone 6S and Samsung Galaxy S6 as you can get.

Regardless, the phone is a pleasure to hold and so easy to slip into a jeans pocket.

The classic Motorola dimple remains in the Motorola Moto X Style, although its smaller size means it’s a less satisfying spot upon which to rest your finger. Truly a cool smartphone with high-end specs at an affordable price.
