Well, it does seem like the Moto G 3rd Generation just came into the market, if you want to judge by the fast-selling quality of it, as of recent days. However, the Moto X Play that came after that (and, stands sandwiched between the release of Moto G3 and Moto X Style), was an improvement in the larger aspect of technological innovation.
For the untrained observer (one who is not interested in looking deeply into the specifications as much as the style that comes with it), the physical attributes of Moto X Play may look a lot similar to the ones that came glued to the Moto G3. However, it would not be so technically logical, to say there aren't any differences.
Moto X Play, (which, actually has an X in its name, for reasons unknown), is a modern day combination of the sleek and style that one can rightfully expect from any piece of technological paraphernalia. It boasts of features, which are not only a departure from its previous classic versions, but also additional strengths to its entirety.
Weighing around 169 grams, and with a thickness ofabout 10.9 millimetres, the phone stands pretty compact, compared with most smartphones that come with today into the market. The back cover seems to sit pretty protectively and perhaps may stand for a longer period of time. It also sports a water repellant nano-coating which is IP52 certified. It has a protective Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and the touch screen is of a length of 5.5 inches and is capacitive with multi touch features, and also has a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels.
Moving onto its internal specifications, Moto X Play, certainly seems to offer some improvements, which are an upgrading from the features of its predecessor, Moto G3. First up, the most noticeable feature of Moto X Play is its impressive battery life, a whopping 3630 mAh, which means gospel for people who pretty much use their phones for all their work, and not to forget the YOLO ones, who are pretty active on social media, all day!
The battery is also in-built, which offers an additional advantage of not having to be fussy in our approach of opening the back cover for inserting the microSD or the NanoSIM that Moto X Play so majestically supports.
It has a core 2GB RAM, which runs on a chipset, Snapdragon 615, which seems to be different from Moto G3, which used Snapdragon 410. As far as the memory is concerned, Moto X Play offers an improvement having an exorbitant 128 GB memory with a microSD card slot, and has an internal memory of compatible 16\32 GB. Good luck for people who live on their data storage.
In this 'selfie' generation, (a time when a bunch of useless 'selfie-taking' products are being developed on an everyday basis), the importance of a camera specification package in a phone becomes important. Though the camera boasts of a 21 Mega Pixel Primary Camera and a 5 Mega Pixel Secondary Camera, the quality that it offers can only be stated to be decent, with pictures not that different from the ones taken with a Moto G3.
The gaming aspect of the phone may be a bit lagging, for the phone does seem to have problems with the loading threshold time, even for applications, as such. But, as a whole, if you are not looking for very detailed specifications like these, Moto X Play is a good choice.
So, as a summation, you might find this phone just better than the Moto G3. With a price of around 19k, it does seem to be the best bet, in the market as of now, justified with its sleeky stature and brainy configurations. But, people may have differing opinions as far as technology is considered, so you never know!
