For this year , Motorola has three new devices in its catalog, equipping some of the best performance in the sector telephony . Since the day of their presentation we had not heard much about them. Today one of the three, specifically the Motorola Moto X Play, is back in the news for not having, apparently, some important sensors, among which would be the gyroscope.
It would have been a user who would have given the alarm signal and later, after several investigations , it would have been confirmed that this model completely lacks a gyroscope and other sensors. The following screenshot from CPU-Z , comparing data between the Nexus 4 (left) and the Moto X Play (right) leaves no room for doubt. Everything indicates, for its part, that the Motorola Moto X Style would integrate them, so it seems that in this case the company would have decided to eliminate them in its mid-range. About the Motorola Moto G (2015) we do not know anything for now.
At the moment it is unknown if the manufacturer would have preferred to choose not to incorporate gyroscope and other sensors in the phone, or it could be due to a software problem preventing it from being used correctly . Although a priori this issue may seem somewhat absurd, it is not so much if we think that some Android games , the operating system itself, and quite a few multimedia applications use the information from this sensor in order to function properly. Mention for example apps like Photo Sphere.
It is important to note that the gyroscope is independent of the accelerometer , and the latter is present in the device . We do not know what will happen from now on and if the company will comment on it, giving explanations about why it would have decided to delete this very useful sensor. We think that a device like the Moto X Play should have it. If we remember its characteristics, the new mid-range of the firm has a 5.5-inch screen and FullHD resolution (1,920 x 1,080 pixels), which places it in the phablet category. Inside is present an eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processorIt works at a power of 1.7 GHz per core. This chip is accompanied by a 2GB RAM.
With regard to internal memory, users can choose between 16GB or 32GB, both cases can be expanded by using MicroSD type cards . If there is something in which the new Moto X Play stands out, it is in the camera section. The device has a main sensor with 21 megapixels, dual LED flash and lens with aperture of f / 2.0. In short, the new Motorola phone is capable of capturing high-quality images, especially in low-light conditions. In addition, it is capable of recording 1080p video at 30 fps. For its part, the secondary camera is five megapixels. Otherwise, the Moto X PlayIt is governed by Android 5.1 Lollipop and also equips a 3,630 milliamp battery .
