Moto X Pure Edition, Reviews, Specifications and Release Date

The Moto X Pure Edition (known as the Moto X Style outside of the US) maintains the series' features while adding some exciting new functionality.

The Moto X Pure Edition has a lot to live up to around these parts. For two straight years, its predecessors have grabbed the “Phone of the Year” crown in the end of year top 5 list. That’s a pretty big deal when you consider all of the phones that come out each year. Obviously, we love the approach Motorola takes to Android phones and so if you have used any of the Moto X products, you probably aren’t surprised that they won even with a couple of troublesome areas (their cameras, for one) that certainly weren’t best-in-class. Motorola gets Android that’s about the best way I can explain their phones.                          Moto X Pure Edition

The Moto X Pure is a truly big-screen phone, sporting a 5.7-inch 1440p LCD display that’s rich and bright. At over 6 inches tall, it’s directly comparable in size to phones like the iPhone 6 Plus and the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. That’s huge, especially if you have small hands, but this is the direction all phones are going. We find it less of a nuisance with every new phablet we test it’s the way manufacturers are driving the industry, so we’d best get on board. Thankfully, there’s good reason to: A phone that can double as a tablet, a book page or a movie screen is a phone that’s hard to put down. Love it or hate it, 5.7 inches is the new normal.
