5 Things That Would Have Made the Moto X Style the Perfect phone

44

Moto X style/pure edition is Motorola’s flagship device for 2015. Compared to its predecessor the phone features a number of improvements supporting a larger 5.7 inch 2k display, a higher resolution 21 Megapixel camera and a faster Qualcomm MSM8992 Snapdragon 808 Dual-core 1.8 GHz Cortex-A57 & quad-core 1.44 GHz Cortex-A53 processor. Despite having top notch specifications and all the usual software features that Motorola bundles with its flagship device there are certain features that the phone is still missing, so here are 5 things that could have made the Moto X style the perfect phone.

  1. A Smaller AMOLED display

When the first Moto X was launched back in 2013, a lot of people were impressed by the fact that the phone felt very small in the hand despite supporting a fairly large 4.7 inch display.  In 2014 Motorola decided to increase the size of the screen to 5.2 inches and it was met with some criticism as the device felt significantly larger compared to the 2013 model. Fast forward to 2015 and this year’s flagship has entered into Phablet category supporting a larger 5.7 inch display. While some people do prefer the larger screen because of the increased real state, one of the main selling points of the original Moto X was how small it felt in the hand. While Motorola has done a fantastic job of shortening the bezels the device still feels larger than an average smartphone which makes it difficult to use with one hand. On top of that another problem is that Motorola has gone with an LCD display on this phone instead of an AMOLED display. Generally AMOLED displays have deeper blacks and are much easier to use in the sun light. There are no software features that take advantage of the larger display like the Galaxy note.

  1. A finger print scanner

While this might not be a very important feature for a lot of people a finger print scanner does bring an added level of security and comfort of not having to type in your password again and again, not to mention the fact that once a user uses a finger print scanner it is very difficult to go back to conventional way of typing in your password. Both Samsung and Apple support finger print scanners on their respective flagship devices, which give both phones a slight edge over the Motorola phones in terms of security.

  1. OIS (optical Image Stabilization)

In terms of camera the Moto X style features a 21 MP, 5248 x 3936, phase detection autofocus camera. According to Motorola the new camera module collects more light, is faster to focus and produces more accurate colors, while these features sound great on paper having optical image stabilization would have enhanced the camera experience as OIS ensures better low light and better video performance. All the devices that Motorola competes with feature optical image stabilization, while there are phones without optical image stabilization offering good performance like the iPhone 6, however the camera has always been the weakest point of the Moto X series and after what Samsung and LG have achieved in regards to camera performance with their flagship devices it will be disappointing to see the Moto X style camera underperforming in any way.

  1. Battery

The Moto X style features a Non-removable 3000 mAh battery, while the mAh rating is higher than most flagship devices it is disappointing that Motorola didn’t opt for a 3630 mAh battery, which is instead featured in the Moto X play. While it can be argued that Moto X style will retail at a price point lower than most flagship devices because of which Motorola had to cut corners somewhere, it would have been awesome if Moto X style had a higher rated battery. Traditionally battery life hasn’t been the strongest selling point of the Moto X series and since this year Motorola has gone with 5.5 inch 2k display battery life there is a chance that it might become a concern for the Moto X style users.

  1. More Software Features

When the first Moto X was launched Motorola bundled it with some very cool and innovative software features that weren’t present in any other phone at the time. Features like active notifications, Moto voice and Moto assist received wide critical acclaim and were praised by most Moto X users. In 2014 Motorola went one step ahead polishing all the features and adding more functionality such as adding the feature to reply to WhatsApp messages through Moto voice.  With this year’s model Motorola hasn’t added any new software features and while all the old features are still present no additional functionality has been added to the software experience. It would have been nice to see Motorola add some software features that take advantage of the larger display like multi window or a mode for one handed usability like reachability, plus it was noticed by many users that overtime some of the software features of the Motorola UI became unresponsive so it remains to be seen how the software features age on this year’s flagship.

So in conclusion it has to be said that the Moto X style/pure edition is a great phone but it was disappointing to see Motorola miss out on certain features with the phone but at a price point that is almost 200 $ lower than most flagships on the market it is really hard to complain.  What were your first impressions of the Moto X style?
