Moto X Pure Review!


Moto X Pure is a new phablet device from Motorola with the same size class as the Galaxy Note 5.  It’s certainly not for those of you who want a small phone but for those of you who want to enjoy a large 5.7-inch screen for easier viewing and typing.  So bear that in mind before deciding to get the Moto X Pure (or the international version Moto X Style which is identical in hardware specs).

As far as build quality goes, Motorola has done a terrific job of giving the Moto X Pure a sturdy metal frame along with customizable colors for the back cover, back metal, speaker grills, and the front.  Moto X Pure comes with real metal buttons along with micro USB port on bottom that supports Quick Charge 2.0 technology at full 12 volts (unlike 9 voltes on the Note 5).  Up on the top, Moto X Pure features a nano-SIM/micro-SD card slot.  Overall, Moto X Pure is one of the most customizable phones you can get right now.  Also, make sure to order straight from Motorola’s website to get all the customization/engraving options, which are free of charge.  (Don’t buy from Amazon or eBay as you don’t get to customize it.)

Probably the best feature on the Moto X Pure isn’t the customizable colors but its price and 1440P display.  While many phones similarly priced feature 1080P screen (such as the OnePlus Two), the Moto X Pure gives you a crisp, clear 1440P screen that allows you to enjoy 4K content (in 1440P) on YouTube and also play back 4K videos you took with the camera in 1440P resolution.  This may not sound like much but for those of you who have seen 1440P videos, you will never want to go back to 1080P.  Compared to the Note 5, Moto X Pure screen isn’t as bright (414 lux vs. 770 lux at full brightness) but in my personal experience it will not hinder your experience unless you work outdoors all day long as a lifeguard on a sunny beach.

    Hey MAX! I like the way you review and the way you speak, it shows a much “realistic” kind of way telling of your experience and feel of it. Keep it up man! 😀
