Here are the videos you don't want to miss this week - August 1st, 2015
It’s been a crazy week here at Android Authority. Not only did Motorola and OnePlus decide to announce their next flagship devices a mere hours apart from one another, but we’ve also managed to bring you four full reviews this week. Our video team has been working very hard, so we figured this is a good time to round up some of our best video coverage from the past seven days.
Below you’ll find our full reviews of the NUU Mobile Z8, Meizu MX5, vivo X5Pro and ZTE Axon, as well as a ton of hands-on coverage for the Moto X Style, Moto G (2015) and OnePlus 2. Joe’s most recent Android Apps Weekly video is also attached at the bottom of this post, in case you missed it earlier today.
There’s a lot to cover here, so let’s jump right in:
Hands-on and first impressions
Motorola Moto X Style (aka Pure Edition)
Motorola has just unveiled its newest flagship device for 2015 – the Moto X Style. Combining a big Quad HD display, Snapdragon 808 CPU and a few aesthetic changes, this new smartphone may be a force to be reckoned with.

Motorola Moto G (2015)
Motorola also took the wraps off the newest device in its budget lineup – the Moto G (2015). Featuring a ton of improvements over last year’s model (while keeping the same price point), the new Moto G seems to be one heck of a smartphone so far. We went hands-on with the new device, and you don’t want to miss it!

Just a few hours before Motorola announced its new devices, OnePlus took the wraps off its new “2016 flagship killer”, the OnePlus 2. Although it may be missing a few key features, the OnePlus 2 comes with some of the best specs on the market. Take a look at our full hands-on video above.
OnePlus 2 vs the competition
OnePlus 2 vs OnePlus One
How does the OnePlus 2 fare against the company’s 2014 flagship? We try to answer that question with our quick hands-on video of the OnePlus 2 vs OnePlus One.
OnePlus 2 vs Samsung Galaxy S6
Samsung’s Galaxy S6 is one of the best devices on the market, so we thought it was fitting to compare it to the newly-announced OnePlus 2.
OnePlus 2 vs LG G4
The LG G4 is also one of the best Android smartphones available at this time, but how does it compare to the newest from OnePlus? Check out the video above for more details.
NUU Mobile Z8
Many of you may not be familiar with NUU Mobile, but perhaps you should. Although NUU Mobile’s Z8 handset may not sport the best speaker or battery on the market, it does offer up a killer design, performance and overall user experience. Check out Bailey’s full review for more information.
Meizu has been an up-and-coming smartphone manufacturer for some time, but can the company compete against the competition with its new MX5 smartphone? One of our newest team members, Krystal Lora, aims to answer that question in her full review of the Meizu MX5.
vivo is another one of those companies that you may not recognize right away, but its latest X5Pro handset is definitely worth checking out. Phil puts the vivo X5Pro through our full review treatment, which you can find attached above.
The ZTE Axon features some of the best specifications on the market, but can it compare to more popular handsets like the Galaxy S6 or LG G4? Lanh aims to answer that question, and more, in his full review of the ZTE Axon.
