Quick Review of Moto Z Play

The display is perfect with 5.5 inches and full HD resolution. The Corning Gorilla Glass protective cover is added advantage. Snapdragon 625 is based on Cortex A53 processors, which are mid-level, but good performers. The RAM of 3GB means a lot than a 2GB. In case of a 3GB RAM version, the performance would be great in case of, heavy graphical games, multitasking etc.

The camera is well featured in the rear with dual tone, dual LED flash, laser autofocus and phase detection. Battery has big capacity and this provides backup for very long time. We are expecting minimum 2 days backup for casual usage. Overall, a mid-high level performance is expected in Moto Z Play with 3GB of RAM.

Opinion to Buyers –  Moto Z Play

The specs is perfect for a mid-level android smartphone. All we have to consider is the price. Moto price are always worthy for their brand reputation. The price assumption now, gives us a feel of reasonable and competitive price. For casual users who doesn’t use the graphical apps or games much and not use many apps at same time can go with a 2GB of RAM. Others should have to choose the 3GB of RAM.
