    What is the difference between those two? Leaving the built quality both are totally same. Is there any other difference?

    It looks like a Verizon branded Moto X Play. I'll dig deeper in the specs but so far I couldn't find many differences.

    Looks to me like the maxx 2 will not have the shatterproof tech, only the turbo2. Also the processors are diff.

    You are going to pay more for the sd810 and shatterproof technology

    Sent with my white Note5 with nonremovable back and no SDcard!

    Which is $200 to $300 more.

    + Verizon bloatware. Which is understandable since it's a Verizon DROID phone.

    I kinda wish there were all-US carrier "Pure Edition" versions of the third gen Moto G and Moto X Play.

    Just to be clear- No qi charging and some sensors are missing, correct?

    I believe I read somewhere that you won't be able to take advantage of some of the moto actions (i.e chop motion, wave to wake)

    In the X Play the only Moto action available is the double twist to open the camera, so I imagine it will be the same. Moto Display works fine. It includes interactive notifications and the wake up feature.

    will it be able to use the same accessories as the Moto X Play?
    (such as cases, screen protectors, back covers)

    thanks!

    Most likely, but those phones are sold in different markets and I don't think both will be available in the same country. The Maxx 2 is a Verizon branded device just for the States.
