Which Phone Is Better, Is It The Moto X Style

asked

Which phone is better, is it the Moto x style or one plus 2. I am looking out for build quality, camera quality and durability.

asked

Hi Both devices are great but Motorola Moto X Style   is a better option over all in performance. but in all honesty i wouldn't suggest both instead you can go for Lenovo Vibe X3  by far the best phone in this price range with SD card slot. high end Snapdragon 808 processor with 3GB ram 5.5 inch full HD screen its also the most accurate and best full HD screen in this price range.  Dual Front facing stereo speakers and has one of the best audio quality of any phone in the market even through head phones thanks to dedicated high end DAC for music. Large 3.5 k mah battery for all day battery life 21 mp Camera same sensor as the latest xperia line up and a really good front camera also. finger print scanner  32 GB storage with SD card slot. currently mrp is 20k but it might be out of stock on amazon and should be back in stock shortly

asked

Thanks for the info, could u also advice me as to which will be the best phone to bring under 12k, camera quality and future updates being the top priority.
