How Google’s Moto X phone compares with S4, iPhone 5, HTC One

Aug 2, 2013(7STARNEWS)Google's Motorola Mobility has just released a new smartphone the Moto X. We take a look at how it stacks up against the top three smartphone that are there in the market right now which includes the Samsung Galaxy S4, Apple's iPhone 5 and the HTC One.

Processor, Storage Space and RAM: Google's Moto X smartphone does not come with a quad-core device and like the rumour mills had hinted, it comes with a Qualcomm 1.7GHz Dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. The Galaxy S4 on the other hand has an Exynos 5 Octa (eight core processor) which is combination a 1.6 GHz Quad + 1.2 GHz Quad processors.

The iPhone 5 has a 1.3GHz dual-core processor while the HTC One has Qualcomm 1.6GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor. As far as the competition is concerned, the Moto X processor while not a quad-core, is still clocked higher than the iPhone 5. Of course both Samsung and HTC One have quad-core processors. If a quad-core phone is what you want, the Moto X might be a disappointment.

The Moto X also comes with 2GB RAM like the S4 and the HTC One. Only the iPhone 5 has 1 GB RAM. The Moto X has 16 and 32 GB storage versions, while the S4 and iPhone have 16, 32, and 64 GB versions. The HTC One comes in 32 GB and 64 GB.

As far as the GPU is concerned Moto X, S4 and HTC one also have the Adreno 320 , the iPhone 5 has the PowerVR Series5XT SGX543MP3 (3-core) chip.

Screen size The Moto X has 4.7-inch AMOLED screen with 1280×720 pixels resolution which comes to 316 pixels per inch. The iPhone 5 has a 4-inch screen with 1136×640pixels resolution at 326 pixels per inch.

The Galaxy S4 has 5-inch, full-HD screen resolution at 1920×1080 with Super-AMOLED display and this comes to 441 pixels per inch. The HTC One has a 4.7-inch screen with full HD screen at 1920×1080 pixels which comes to 468 pixels per inch.

The Moto X Screen might not seem the best bet, but its still got a fairly high screen resolution.

Camera: The Moto X has a 10 megapixel rear camera and 2 megapixel front camera. The iPhone 5 has an eight megapixel rear camera with a 1.2 front camera. The S4 has a 13 megapixel rear camera and a 2 megapixel front camera. The HTC One comes with 4 megapixel rear camer (with Ultrapixels which means each pixel is much larger in size thanks to a bigger image sensor) with a 2 megapixel front camera.

In terms of a camera war, the S4 and the HTC One are way ahead of the Moto X but at least the phone comes with a 10 megapixel camera.

Battery The Moto X has a 2200 mAh battery which the company says offers up to 24 hours talk time with Mixed usage. The iPhone 5 has 1440 mAh which offers up to 8 hours talk time on 3G. The Samsung Galaxy S4 has a 2600 mAh battery which the company says offers up to 17 hours talk time and upto Up to 8 hours usage time on 3G. The HTC One has a 2300 mAh battery which the company claims offers upto 18 hours talk time on 3G.

While in terms of a processor and the screen resolution, the Moto X might not seem to be in the league of the S4 or the HTC One, Motorola is offering some 18 different back covers ranging in colour from "spearmint" to "cabernet," a choice of black or white fronts and seven different metallic accents for details like the volume button. There are over 252 possible style variations of the phone.

Will personalisation elements help Moto X beat the league of the octa-cores and the quad-core phones? That remains to be seen and of course the phones success will depend on whether and how soon Motorola brings the phone to other countries as the phone as only been launched in the US for now.
