    which phone will you recommend / why?

    is there any comparison / advantages or disadvantages of ASUS Intel Chip vs SD615 ?

    For comparison sake, will be using the ASUS ZF2 5.5 inch with 2G RAM & Moto X PLAY (2G RAM)

    Asus Zenfone 2 ZE551ML - Full phone specifications

    The Moto X Play will have better battery life, maybe a better camera, and be water repellent, supposedly. But its also going to be $100 or so more expensive, no? You could get the 4 gb Zenfone 2 for the same price.

    For the money you can't really beat the Asus.

    I like the 802.11 a that's offered in it to (not on Moto)

    Moto just has 2 GB memory half the ASUS.

    IMO ASUS wins hands down.

    If you need two phone lines like I do, no contest with the ZenFone dual SIM.

    Im guessing both will have their pros and cons

    The Moto x play definitely will have better battery life, probably a more premium feel and almost vanilla android experience

    The zenfone 2 however (at least on specs list) is more powerful (can't beat those 4gb of ram), and while asus ui isn't the best android experience, the experience overall is very smooth and customizable. Also the zenfone 2 is dual sim enabled, if that's your cup of tea.

    I would love to see a comparison between the two once the play is available

    The Moto X Play is already out in Brazil and there's a dual SIM model.

    I did not realize that the Play had dual SIM as well, I thought it was just the Style.

    Oh my, didn't know that..
    Let's hope it comes soon to Mexico.
    How much does it cost in Brazil? (maybe comparing it to the Moto g's cost for reference)

    The difference between them is about 300 R$, both models with 16gb and 2gb of RAM. Moto G about 1000 R$ and X Play about 1300 R$, depending on the shop. For now they are selling both phones only online and Moto maker is down right now

    In the physical stores you can find just the Moto G with 1gb of ram for 100 R$ less. Just a note, the X comes with a turbo charger in the box.

    I'm just waiting to get an X Play on my hands and check how I feel about the size and weight. Specs and price wise it seems perfect for me.
