Are they likely to kick up a fuss about the code stacking after ordering?

​No they actually advertise that they can be stacked.
I think it's over priced for 615 cpu phone. Pretty well built but the SU6 is as good spec wise for half the price.

​True but the smart ultra 6 will never see Marshmallow, never mind Android N. Plus the camera is far better here and so is the build quality, screen is a better quality panel, water repellent nano coating, front facing speaker, customisation in Moto maker, Turbo charging support. Oh and that battery life though! I think it is worth the extra cash for people who care about those things.

Agree totally with all of that. But having had a 615 I found it slow, not as bad as the moto g 3rd gen I have at mo though lol. Just not sure its worth double with a 615 in it, just my opinion though.
Thanks

​I agree with the 615 point, Moto made the wrong decision and I think they should have put in the the older yet more powerful 801 like the Moto X 2014. Still apparantly now the Play has got the Marshmallow update it performs far better than it did under lollipop.

I've always been sceptical about software updates in that they don't make much difference to a phone, but I have to say Marshmallow on the X Play has made a big difference for the better, and with the long battery life it's a supurb phone. I would add that my wife does have a Smart Ultra and that is a very good phone.
This or Nexus 5x....can't decide...any help guys??

​why is that "the wife" always gets the crapper phone?
Battery sometimes last 2 whole days . The camera is great , and i have not noticed any slow downs using apps. Great phone for the price

Because Candy Crush and The Mail Online don't need a high spec handset....

​why is that "the wife" always gets the crapper phone?



Because it's the law. In my experience, many (but not all) married women are far too busy looking after dopey husbands, children and possibly a job to be bothered about having the latest expensive tech. Easier to leave all that nonsense to the man, boys toys and all that. As long as their phone is reliable and does what they want it to do, that's all they are really bothered about.

Just bought a Play and was surprised to see that the physical dimensions are quite close to the Nexus 5x although the screen size is 5.5" vs 5.2". I would agree the 615 is probably the worst part about the Play (gets hot, can stutter) but overall it really has the best combination of price/specs: Screen (403 ppi), features (microSD, NFC, no gyro though), camera (21MP) and amazing battery life (3630mAh!) and mostly vanilla OS, versus similar counterparts (Honor 7, OnePlus Two, Asus Zenfone 2 Laser, Moto G3). Nexus really only has better CPU, fingerprint scanner and speedier updates going for it.

She didn't want to spend £200 on a phone: In fact, initially, she didn't want to spend £99 on a phone and she even went as far as trying a Smart First for £19, but it was just too bad. Also, wouldn't describe the Smart Ultra as 'crappy'.

Seriously tempted. This or the LG G4?
I've had mine a week from the same deal. Really good phone. My only gripe is that it's a smidgen too big for me to handle comfortably.
quality phone, 2 days battery with moderate use.
Not sure if I replace my Nexus 5 with this.
Using topcashback you can get a further 6.3% off making it an incredible £195.83
Got me thinking, I want one I want one I want one!!!!!
Bought this for my wife last week, great phone!
I'm going to buy one, although I need to sell my Nexus 6 first..... any takers?? message me! it's on eBay, username is sb_1981......look it up!
Tempting, this or an iPhone?
The dual sim versions is £225 from Amazon France if anyone wants dual SIM goodness.
Did I hear a while ago something about buying direct from Motorola, that they will replace your screen once for free if you break it or did I dream that.
I thought if getting this but don't like the idea of having such large icons on the home screen. Can these be changed?

The obligatory "SU6 available cheaper" post. I wonder if a mobile phone deal will ever get posted without someone offering up the SU6

This is a mid range phone, you should always look at it chipset before buying a phone. The 615 Snapdragon (SD) doesn't compare to the LG G4 808 SD chipset.
4xx SD chipset (budget), 6xx SD chipset (mid range), 8xx SD chipset (flagship). This phone is over priced and for me, to be a good deal has to be sub £170. This phone would have been a good phone and worth it launch price if it came with an old 801 SD chipset like what Oneplus have done with the OnePlus X

I have the G4 and the only thing I hate is the battery life. I'm thinking of giving up some things for a longer battery life. The G4 is a disappointment coming from the G2 in terms of battery.

Depends how you use it probably, I'd say my moto x play is matching your moto g for use longevity

Grab a Qualcomm Quick Charger if you buy this, the one in the box is just a cheapo slow kind.

Ever heard of a spare battery? I get a full days use from mine.
I'd like a Google phone purely for the early android updates, damn my need for the highest end latest and greatest phone.

Yeah, but I don't want to carry a spare.
