Two days, two new phone announcements. Just after comparing the brand new OnePlus 2 to the 2015 flagship smartphones, Motorola announced two new Moto X smartphones – a mid-range Snapdragon 615-powered Moto X Play, and a flagship Moto X Style that brings pure Android to users. So how do these two devices compare to other devices within their range?
One of the biggest hindrance for wireless charging technology on mobile phones would definitely have to be metal cases, especially now when more and more smartphone manufacturers adopting metal body or frame.

Just hours after OnePlus took the curtains off the OnePlus 2, the 2016 flagship killer, Maxis is now teasing the device saying that it’s coming. There are no details at the moment, but it looks like Malaysians won’t have to wait too long to get the device.

So before we look ahead in time, how does it compare to the flagship smartphones we have today?
