The Moto X Pure Edition and OnePlus 2 were announced within 12 hours of one another, so you knew they had to be thrown into the ring together to duke it out.
It’s not all that often that a budget flagship phones get announced. But two within the span of mere hours? We have to figure out which is the king. When it comes to the Moto X Pure Edition it is going to cost you more, but you will be enjoying a pure version of Android. On the OnePlus 2 side of things, if you value more storage space on the phone itself, you’ll want to go here.
Honestly, there is no “wrong” decision to be made between these two phones, but if one of them is even slightly on your radar, both of them should be.
