Engadget Review

The Moto X Play seems built for one thing. It can't compete with other devices on specs, but it will last you two days on a single charge.If you prioritize battery life over everything, it's definitely worth considering.

Pros
  • Truly all-day battery life
  • The best Motorola camera yet
  • Solid performance
Cons
  • Questionable value when compared to other Moto phones
  • Camera is still poor in low light
  • Not waterproof like the Moto G
