No

Still waiting for mine

I think this one is a single sim. Check the website.

Motorola have never officially sold the dual SIM Moto X Play into the UK market, only the european (exluding the UK), asia and south american markets have had the dual sim as an option on this model.

If you're considering getting the Moto G4 Plus but want the compass and NFC, then this is a great alternative as it has compass, NFC and in some ways it's slightly better build and a slightly smaller chassis size even though both are the same screen size.

Out of interest, why is there so much interest in dual sim - how do people use this? Texts/calls on one, and internet on other? Or is this for travellers?

thanks

16Gb out of stock

How does the camera on this fair compared to the Sony Z3 / Z5 compact?

I live in Vietnam. The fixed internet is dire and very expensive so I do everything off 3G. when I come to the UK twice a year I use a 12GB/12 months 3 sim but I also need another sim for texts and voice. basically anyone on pay as you go who uses a lot of data will need a dual sim phone wherever they go as they will need one data onlybsim and one for voice and texts.

I use mine to save me having a work phone and my personal phone on me. One phone has both my work SIM and personal SIM in it.

Some people may have to have 2 sims- work and personal, and it's easier to carry 1 rather than 2 phones then.

does it have gyro? gsmarena doesnt say

Feel its time to upgrade my LG G2, but not keep up to date on phone spec's would this be much of an improvement please?

dosnt have gyro so you can't use VR or cardboard major downer

​nope no vr will work on it

Can't decide between this or the Moto G4 ... 50 quid difference in it from a price perspective.

Good point - but for some people, the work phone needs locking down. But I get the idea. Thanks.

I picked up this phone a few months ago, it is quite a chunky **** to me, I never carry it around as my main phone (stick with my s5 and z3 compact).
However it is great as a media device with a very nice screen and very loud front speaker and rather good battery.

I would put it above the G4, plenty of comparisons between this and the G4 Plus on Youtube.

good price for the specs

Had this phone on release - great screen, decent battery life. Only the camera - though adequate - didn't quite cut the mustard for me. A steal at this price.

Better than the g4, but worse camera than the g4 plus. And 2gb ram, so depends on the version of g4 plus you compare it too.

It has got a great battery, and is better looking than the g4 too.

My wife has this phone. The build quality is weak, but stick it in a Tudia case and it's as good as any other smartphone. The battery life is excellent and the camera is a 20mp Sony which takes better pictures than my compact.


I tend to agree. The bezel frame is prone to cracking and the paint on it is weak - had mine for just under 12 months and the paint by the USB port has chipped away and ive lost a miniscule part of the frame from wear and tear.
Whack it in a case.

At Low light it does suffer, and its focus struggles too in those conditions. Pictures arent super grainy but you know you're in low light and the LED flash tends to over expose (shutter closing at the wrong time, perhaps)

Have you ever tried a different camera app, one that gives you more control over its settings.
