The G3 is a little bit faster. It also has 32gb on board storage with microSD slot and removable battery. The Moto X Play is newer, so you'll be guaranteed more updates. Plus it has a better camera, display, and battery life.
Which one would you recommend? IS the Moto Style(?) better?

it depends on your preferences, id turn to pocket now or android authority. there are too many variables to give a straight up answer. personally i would go for the moto x as the updates are quick and LG is brutal for updates.

Side by side comparisons work well. The LG G3 is over a year old and the reason why the device is priced to sell. I'll also agree on LG's untimely updates. If faced with this decision, I would go for the Moto X Play. The massive battery, expandable storage and an amazing camera along with timely updates would be my reasons for choosing this device.

What do you guy smear by "untimely updates"? What don't they update, exactly?

Yeah, LG is poor for updates. They either take too long or don't happen at all, like the Canadian G2 missing Lollipop or the original G not going past 4.1.
