The Moto X 2015 flagship was introduced by Motorola and it is a blockbuster, running on pure Android as always, making it look like a smaller brother of Google Nexus 6. The biggest issue with Nexus 6 was that it delivered a huge screen and awesome viewing space with its oversized profile. Sadly, at the same time, a device with a huge navigational touch screen had a certain downside.
It was big and clumsy and never really won the fancy of true Android lovers. Motorola has corrected this issue by introducing a slightly smaller 5.7inch screen. This makes it a little bigger than the iPhone 6 Plus but still smaller than the bulky and awkward Nexus 6.
The next-generation Motorola Moto X has entered the phablet arena but it has remained careful about a certain key element. Even though the display is smaller than the Nexus 6, it makes up for it, with its 2K resolution display with 520 pixels per inch.
The Nexus 6, on the other hand, offers a 2k screen but with a lower 493ppi. The Nexus 6 was a monster when it was released with a Snapdragon 805 32-bit quad-core processor with a speed of 2.7GHz. The Motorola Moto X beats it hands-down with a faster and stronger hexa-core Snapdragon chip using a 64-bit mobile computing configuration.
As a result, expect this awesome device to hit major performance benchmarks and provide efficient and fast operations. The Moto X also has great camera features. It has a 21MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. The Nexus 6 had a 13MP rear camera and a 2MP front camera but in today’s market, Motorola remains a sole winner.
The new Moto X will be available in three different configurations with storage capacities of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. Furthermore, this device can go up to a storage capacity of 128GB. Nexus 6 isn’t good enough at all in comparison.
When you think about the price, the Moto X comes at a price of $399 when it releases this September. The Nexus 6 was introduced with a $650 price tag but it now remains at a price of $499 on the Google Play Store.
Till now, we compared it against the Nexus 6; let us see how it fares against the LG G4. The LG G4 is smaller than the Moto X with dimensions of 5.86 x 3.00 x 0.39 inches compared to the dimensions of Moto X Style at 6.06 x 3.00 x 0.44 inches. People who are looking for a bigger display should definitely choose the Moto X. Both these devices have a Quad-HD display with the Moto X measuring 5.7inches and the G4 at 5.5inches.
A display resolution of 2560×1440 adorns the display of both these devices. However, the G4 wins the ppi war at 538 pixels per inch, compared to 520ppi in the Moto X Style. In terms of display technology, the LG G4 wins with its IPS Quantum One panel compared to the TFT LCD display in the Moto X. The higher color accuracy in the G4 is a result of this technology.
The Moto X Style has an IP52 certification and is water resistant but the G4 can survive under water for 2 hours even though it has no certification. Under the hood, both these devices are powered by the same processor but in terms of internal storage capacities, the Moto X clearly wins with its 16/32/64GB options.
The LG G4 is only available with 32GB internal storage, which is certainly a drawback. Thankfully, both these devices can be upgraded to 128GB. Both G4 and the Moto X Style have a battery of 3000mAh but the G4’s battery is removable while the Moto X Style has a non-removable battery. The Moto X Style comes with Android 5.1.1 out-of-the-box compared to the 5.1 in the LG G4.
