Moto Z Play: Jetstream & Rightware

Smart phones are ever increasingly becoming the way people access the Web. A phone needs to have a responsive web browser to render complex pages quickly, ans a reliable radio to ensure content is downloaded as quickly as possible. We can’t quantitatively state how well the radios perform in the phones as the variables are too difficult to lock down, but we can investigate browser performance. For our tests we use the JetStream benchmark for Javascript and RightWare’s BrowserMark for comprehensive web performance analysis, including HTML5.

As we've mentioned, the Moto Z Play is intended to be a more mainstream departure from its high-end siblings. Performance here is a step above the new Moto G4's, at least. The Moto G4's also utilize budget friendly Snapdragon 600-series SOC's, though they use the even more downscaled Snapdragon 617. Still, performance is admirable enough to not cause any issues loading pages in real world usage - bandwidth and/or latency are still the real limiting factors for most users.
