Motorola lets you down here in Moto X Play.
It take 3 hrs to charge with bundles charger.
2ndly when inferior phones and brands are giving ota update on phones.
Motorola which proMises faster updates have no such news.
A let down in terms of price a let down.
This review is my opinion as someone who has used the Moto X 2013 (which in my opinion is the best smart phone ever made) & Moto X 2014 (A great phone too but had a relatively poor battery).
The phone has its pros and not everything is bad, and to the pros first
+ Excellent build. The phone is a bit heavy but still nice to hold, the curved back really helps
+ Water repellent, but this has been the norm with Motorola phones ever since Moto Razr i
+ Stock Android makes the phone buttery smooth, yes there is the occasional micro lag when scrolling through quick or having lots of tasks open but that is something that we can live with
+ Excellent call quality, Motorola are the pioneers of cell phones (or Handy) and this clearly shows in all their phones
+ Expandable memory, this is a very welcome addition
- Screen. Breathing notification on the previous Moto X is something that made me love the phone. Switching from AMOLED to LCD meant Tschüss Breathing notifications.
- Bundled Charger. Motorola has bundled exactly the same charger that was bundled with Moto X 2013. It takes a little around 3 hours to charge the phone. It's not much of a deal breaker as the phone lasts for the day and i leave it to charge overnight but Motorola could have bundled the Turbo charger like it has done in a few countries.
- Camera, it's hard to believe that it is a 21M camera. The pictures are great ONLY if the light conditions are ideal but otherwise the pictures are grainy and noisy. PLUS there is no OIS, which is a bummer for the price
- Gyroscope or the lack of one, means no Photsphere and no watching those fancy movies.
- Battery, agreed that its a huge battery and lasts more than a day but considering the primitive processor used, you would expect the battery to last much longer which is not the case
It is a phone unworthy of the Moto X monicker, instead it could have been named Moto G Play

I purvhased a moto x play set recently. The phone is supplid with an almost useless ear phone.such a renowned brand has a poor accessory not usable by the customer.
Think of changing the earphone seriously.

Anonymous, 21 Nov 2015Do both dual sim and single sim versions are getting marshmallow update?There is no single sim version , Moto X Play comes in dual sim
I impressed with reviews on gsmarena and flipcart about Moto X play. And brought this mobile. But I am facing many issues. I think, either reviews are wrong or I got defect peace...
Please suggest me if can I fix the below issues with any setting. Thank you.
Below is my experience with Moto X Play:
1. Rear Camera quality is good in day light only.
2. Rear camera quality is not good in indoor light.
3. Front camera is good for selfies only.
4. Front camera is not good for Vedic calls. Break lines appears while video call... I tried with 1MB net, 3G airtel and 4G airtel connection(used 3G sim).
5. Heating problem occurs event for small application usages.
6. Processing is also very slow. When I am trying to open 4MB image it tools 4 to 10 s cons to get image clearly (started with blurring)
7. Also when I use multi screen option, for closing that window we will have 'x' mark to close at top. That button will not activate immediately opened the window.
8. Based on 6 and 7th points I am considering processor is not up to the mark as specified in the spec.
