Moto X Style 2015 vs. Nexus 6 – Which Is The Better Buy?

0

The Moto X Pure 2015 also known as Moto X Style has a pretty potent opponent, this being the Nexus 6 (2014), a gizmo that was designed by the joining of forces between Google and Motorola. In this comparison, we wish to reveal which out of these two devices is a better buy for you as far as costs are concerned, specs and more, so don’t go anywhere.

Design and Display

Both of these two devices rock a lovely curved rear end plus some neat front speakers. However, as far as size, the Nexus 6 has a 6.0-inch screen while the Moto X Style one has a 5.7-inch screen, The X Style has 520ppi whilst the Nexus 6 has only 493ppi, but both phones include Quad HD resolutions of 1440x2560p. These two devices also have Gorilla Glass 3 protection in common, the Moto X also has an IPS touchscreen while the Nexus 6 gizmo sports an AMOLED touchscreen.

Performance and Storage Options

The Nexus 6 contains a Quad-core Snapdragon 805 clocked at 2.7GHz as well as Adreno 420 graphics coupled with 3GB of RAM. However, the Moto X Style isn’t far behind as it packs the hexa-core Snapdragon 808 and 3GB of RAM. Dual-band Wi-Fi and LTE are included in both of them and they both run on the newest Android Lollipop version. The Nexus 6 contains a 3220 mAh battery, but bigger is not always better, thus, the battery incorporated in the Moto X Style even if it’s a smaller one, a 3000 mAh battery charges way faster.

Camera Units and Costs

Camera wise, the Nexus 6 rocks a 13 MP camera that has OIS and dual-LED flash as well as autofocus, you can also enjoy the 4K recording element as well as a 2MP snapper added in front. As for the X Style, it has a 21MP camera unit and it can also record in 4K, and the best part is that it rocks a 5MP snapper on the front side of the device.

If you decide to go with the Moto X Style, you should know that you can also expand the storage up to 128 GB due to its microSD card slot, as for the Nexus 6 gizmo, 64 GB is the limit.

With the upcoming arrival of the Nexus 6P and 5X devices, the outdated Nexus 6 will probably be marked down. However, for a brand new Nexus 6 phone you will have to pull out at least $500 from your pocket, the starting price for the X Style is $400 (this is for the 16GB variant), so, which one will it be then?
