The phone runs 6.0.1 Marshmallow on a Qualcomm MSM8952 Snapdragon 617 SoC with an octa-core processor (4 x 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 + 4 x 1.2 GHz Cortex-A53 processors) that isn’t the best a smartphone can have but works great for everyday tasks along with 2GB of RAM.
The Adreno 305 GPU although adequate for simple games and graphics, would not impress a gaming enthusiast. Storage space on this version of the phone is 32GB that can be increased to 256GB with an SD card that fits into a dedicated card slot. The phone, in true Motorola style, is equipped with useful gimmicks such as nudging the phone to show notifications as opposed to pushing a button or tapping screen. The phone also has Google Voice assistant.
