Moto X Force Review

By  |  4 Comments

I am the kind of person who never really keeps her phone in the bag, except for security checks at the airports. Reasons, well, I am constantly on phone because not just my work demands it, but that’s also how we stay in touch with people and what’s going on outside. Other reasons are, I have had one of my phone stolen in the past from my handbag; also now that I carry crossbody/small sling bags mostly, I would rather save up the space for my makeup stash for touch ups!

Now I hope you realize, how prone I am to dropping my phone since I keep it in my hand all day. I practically drop my phone a gazillion times a day and every time it goes down, my heart skips a bit. I have had my previous phone (iphone 4s) drop so bad that it killed the display and costed me some 13,000 bucks, uff!

So if you’re someone who like me drops their phone quite often, well then Moto X Force may just be your answer.

I received the Moto X Force 64 GB couple of days back. But before I go down with reviewing in detail, here are the pictures I clicked while un-boxing the Moto X Force.

Design & Built:

The Moto X Force looks pretty neat and good looking (in a muscualr way) to have in hand. Metal frames, rounded corners, ballistic nylon back and not heavy to hold. The overall build quality feels nice and with a 5.4 inch screen, the phone is bit bigger than my iphone 6, but definitely smaller than a 6+. The phone is splash-proof (doesn’t say it’s waterproof so you know, you can go to the beach with it but not under water), dust proof, and of course shatter-proof. I’ll talk more about the shatter proof feature too down below.

Display:

The 5.4-inch screen comes with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels making the display really crisp. The colours come out great and the brightness too looks brilliant. Only little issue I had here was with the viewing angles, not too sharp and screen being very reflective, but not big of an issue either. Further, the major aspect and the USP of the phone, the display is shatter proof. I drop tested the phone at home, road, pedestrian walk area and a construction site (pretty much rocky terrain this one), practically all hard grounds possible. Lot many times it did fall flat on screen but not even a scratch on it. The only scratches it suffered were on the sides and that can be taken care off by getting a case or a side bumper for the phone.

Dropped the phone (yes it’s a hard ground if you can see, with some tiny stones and gravel which can easily scratch the screen), fell flat on ground.

Picked it up, wiped the dust off, and nopes nothing on the screen!

While dropping it so many times it did result in few scratches here and there though.

Here’s a video of the impact the phone faced when I dropped it on this ground:

Further, Motorola offers 4 years of warranty on the screen, so if you do manage to shatter it somehow, they’ll take care of it. 

Software & Performance:

Moto X Force functions on Android Lollipop and a Marshmallow update is available once you start using it which has a slick interface. It also comes with couple of pre loaded apps and functionality is pretty smooth. It is powered by the Snapdragon 810 processor, has 3GB RAM, 64GB internal storage (comes with an option of 32GB too) and supports a microSD card of up to 200GB. The phones is fast with no lags as such, easy to scroll through your social media at the same time without any glitch. GPS is good. HD videos are good quality, call quality good too, and browsing is smooth enough. However, the phone gets bit hot while using the internet for long or even playing games.

Camera:

Moto X Force comes with a 21 MP rear camera and 5 MP front camera. In good light, the camera clicks really nice pictures. It has good number camera options. The camera captures decent enough details and the colours come out pretty good. The low-light can be bit of a spoiler though. I really liked the front camera, it is as sharp as any regular rear camera. It manages to capture even finest of details! The video mode, same thing, needs good light but no slo-mo or hyperlapse options.

Overall I think it’s a nice phone to have especially when your priority is sturdiness supported by good enough smart phone functions. The pricing – INR 49,999 for 32 GB and INR 53,999 for 64 GB.

Besides that I think the Moto X Force gels easily with my personal style:

Hope this post gets you also the info. you’d need about Moto X Force while buying a new phone for yourself. 

Much Love,

    I don’t talk about such details and related things on my blog, also technically for collabs. there’s a non-disclosure agreement clause on everything. I would appreciate if you refrain asking such questions. But if you have any queries related to the phone, do feel free to ask. Thanks! 🙂
