The Google Nexus 6 has finally been made official with its debut device of the Android 5.0 Lollipop pointed towards Motorola.
With the incremental and drastic revelations of the Nexus 6, critiques and users alike can’t help but compare the upcoming sweetie with the Moto X, which is Motorola’s flagship Qualcomm quad-core chip powered smartphone.
As announcements suggests, both will have closely resembling features, which would include the front-facing speakers, enhanced imaging hardware and tons more to list including the massive battery capacity built with wireless charging capacity. The major trick employed by the Nexus 6 goes for presenting the Android Lollipop with a new concept and material design.
And with that Motorola and Google give an idea on how we might expect upcoming Android devices of 2015 to look like.
Once again, the Nexus 6 will be powered by the new Android 5 Lollipop OS, so users are to expect a much more sophisticated interface with more interesting and functional drop down features. Its system architecture boasts a 2.7 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core CPU and Adreno 420 GPU. For multitasking purposes, it is clocked by a 3GB RAM providing a more seamless user experience. For storage capacity, you can choose between the 32GB and 64GB model.
On the other hand, the Motorola Moto X runs with almost just half of what the Nexus 6 has to offer. Its most recent update is still the Android KitKat. While the hardware is reasonably tough, it’s only a dual core processor compared to the Nexus 6 which is a quad-core unit. Regardless of these specifications, the Moto X is still a good buy.
First, we focus on the display. The Nexus 6 has a truly attractive 6-inch Quad HD display that works perfectly for just about any purpose, be it reading e-books, gaming, watching movies and so on. We then move on to its dual front-face speakers which can deliver stereo quality sound, which you can easily plunge into. Also, it is built with a 13 MP camera with a new optical image stabilization feature and an enhancement to the HDR+ feature. That way, you can tap into more possibilities in taking moments like never before through vividness and color imagination.
How about the Moto X? In reality, it is still a smooth sailing device with its high end features and would not be put into the comparison list without the Nexus 6. Basically, it has a 4.7-inch HD display, which makes it more of a phone than the N6, which is more of a phablet. The camera quality is still up to par with today’s competing models with its 10 MP clear autofocus rear camera and 2MP pixel master front. There are also customization options that allow the users to modify the experience based on their purpose, be it for reading, gaming or video playing. Still a great buy.
The Nexus 6 will start at $649 with the 16GB model while the Motorola Moto X is still at the $349 mark. Why the disparity of the prices? The features and hardware differences could explain it all.
There you have it, a comparison to the upcoming Nexus 6 and the Motorola Moto X that should give you a little more information in your arsenal!
