Aesthetically, Moto X Style is a really classy and composed of good materials. The Terminal has a large glass panel on the front and a rear shroud made of a rubberized material it is applied to a particular texture. The phone is surrounded by a metal frame that, when touched, guarantees a great sense of strength and a good grip.
Great job with regard to the reduction of the borders: despite a 5.7-inch display Terminal “, is not particularly difficult to hold it. Could have been done better, however, regarding the thickness of up to 11.06 mm in the most rounded of the rear shroud.
The metal frame houses the various ports. At the bottom there is a micro USB 2.0 for charging and data transfer. At the top, instead, there is a 3.5 mm headphone jack and a removable trolley that can accommodate a nano SIM and a micro SD card.

Moto X Style is equipped with a front-facing camera, as mentioned, from 5 mepapixel and a rear well 21 mpx. Both are accompanied by an LED flash and guarantee of the shots really good.
As for the rear camera, in particular, the behavior is very satisfactory both in normal lighting conditions at night. Noise almost entirely absent, bright colors and realistic. Also the rear LED flash performs very well on his task: is a dual-tone and this is a big plus for night shots.
As regards the front camera, however, while not taking photos of great resolution, offers shots really good. Slightly noisy in low light, well exploits the LED flash for selfie.
The videos are great. The rear camera can record in 4 k resolution up to 30 fps with great quality and good audio. In addition, the user experience is enhanced by the ability to record video in slow motion.
Moto X Style comes out of the box with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop guaranteeing an excellent user experience. There are no customizations by Motorola with the exception of Motorcycles. Bike looks like a package of software features for terminals Motorola Android.
The features offered are various and very useful. Among many others, Motorcycle Display shows notifications in a minimal, clear and immediate. Basically, thanks to two sensors located in the lower part of the display, Moto X Style is unable to track the user’s movements to give a black screen (customizable) which is responsible for show schedule and any notifications.
From this screen you can also unlock your phone and view notifications. During everyday use, the function is really useful, and even too precise: perhaps it would be enough to put only one sensor for motion detection.
Other features of the package are of considerable importance also Moto Actions and Motion Assist. The first awards of the gesture for quick access to the special functions of the smartphone: shaking it and twisting it simultaneously, for example, you can access the camera. The second is suitable for events with a proactive behavior, useful to increase user productivity and also to allow you to manage your applications and data.

Finally, the price. The European list offers Moto X Style to € 499, but on the NET there are already several offers. However, this is a minor annoyance to request a Terminal like that, since this is ultimately a potential rival of many top of the line.
