Its 16GB of internal storage assures you of 9.5GB of usable storage. If you have lots of stuffs to store in your device, it is ideal to consider getting a microSD of about 32GB. Even with the fact that they have included an option for expandable storage, the available storage is just enough for a standard smartphone user.

The Moto X Play has got the smaller looks of the Moto G, although it is slimmer and bigger. Physically, it is not that big although when it comes to display it is half an inch bigger. Considering its front facing speaker and bigger display, it is a sure fact that Motorola has done a lot in the front of this phone. The curvature of its back offers you with some ergonomics. Whereas its back cover is removable, it does not reveal any useful thing inside. It just comes out, so that you can exchange it with different colors or styles. With its rubbery felling pattern, you are assured of a finer and sturdy grip.

The battery of this phone is sealed, whereas the Nano-SIM cars slot and microSD card port are on the top edge of the frame of this phone. Its different variety of colored backs and accents gives you an opportunity to choose your desires.
