What's This?

The holiday season is here, which means a lot of gifts for yourself as well as for family members. If a smartphone is one of the options in your must-buy list, then “Moto X Play” and Google’s “Nexus 5X” are two phones that you must go for to avoid burning a hole in your pocket. Read on to know more about these devices.


Neither Moto X Play nor Nexus 5X will let you down. To make it easier for you to decide which device is better, we have compared the specs for you. Here you go:

The internal memories of Nexus 5X and Moto X Play are just the same. Both smartphones support 2GB RAM and have two variants – 16GB and 32GB. But Nexus 5X does not offer you a slot for microSD card. On the other hand, Moto X Play comes with a microSD slot and lets you expand the memory up to 128GB. When it comes to looks, Moto X Play is a better-looking phone. With a 5.5-inch Full HD display, this device is IP52 certified. What does that mean? Moto X Play keeps you away from the fear of dropping it into the water as it won’t allow the water to enter the handset. If you are not a fan of big screens, then you should go for Nexus 5X’s 5.2-inch phone. This device also offers you full-HD resolution.

Speaking of the camera, Moto X Play is a clear winner with a 21-megapixel rear camera. Nexus  5X sports a 12.3-megapixel primary camera. That does not mean its camera quality isn’t good. Having said that, if you are more on photography, Moto X Play would be a better option as it also has better camera features. Moto X Play also is a top-scorer when it comes to battery. It dons 3630 mAh battery and comes with TurboPower charging, whereas Nexus 5X has a 2,700 mAh battery which isn’t that impressive compared to today’s powerful batteries.
