Moto X Force vs. Moto X Style – The Latest Motorola Flagship Has A Shatterproof Display

0

Some people are careless and they drop their smartphones on the ground, cracking their frames or damaging their backs or screens. Until now, Samsung and other companies worked on some models which are resistant to shocks, but none of them have thought about making a smartphone with a shatterproof screen. Motorola had this initiative and released the Moto X Force. Here’s a comparison between it and the Moto X Style aka Pure Edition.

Designs and Displays

The Moto X Force is, in fact, the Droid Turbo 2, and it looks a bit like the Moto X line, featuring a plastic back which is slightly curved on the sides, but it’s uglier and feels more robust. Also, the texture from the back looks cheap, but if you don’t like the ballistic nylon, you can choose the leather version on the Moto Maker website. The device is sold via Verizon, so you’ll find its logo on the front side. The device has a thickness of 9.2mm and it weights 169 grams, while its screen uses Samsung’s AMOLED technology and it measures 5.4-inch, while the resolution is QHD at 540ppi. The screen isn’t scratch proof or indestructible, but it has five layers of construction and it can endure drops from a height of at least 1.5 meters.

The Moto X Style is larger in size and even thicker at 11.1mm, while it weights 179 grams. Its back is also made of plastic, but it has some simple diagonal lines across the entire surface. The customers can customize its color or material, as on the Moto Maker website they can choose leather or wood for the back. Also, the screen is an IPS LCD and measures 5.7-inch, but it’s not as sharp as the Droid Turbo, because its resolution, which is also QHD, gives a pixel density of 520ppi.

Hardware

The X Force has better specs, featuring the latest Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 octa core processor clocked at 2GHz, which is coupled with an Adreno 430 GPU and 3GB of RAM. The device has two variants of internal memories with capacities of 32GB and 64GB, each one supporting expansion up to 200GB.

The Moto X Style is the high-tier version of the Moto X duo, and it’s powered by a Qualcomm MSM8992 Snapdragon 808 hexa core processor clocked at 1.8GHz, which is backed by 3GB of RAM and Adreno 418 graphics. The users can choose between the three variants of internal memories of 16, 32 and 64GB, while the maximum supported expandable memory is 128GB.

Cameras and Batteries

Both devices come with a rear camera of 21MP which supports phase detection autofocus, dual-LED flash, auto-HDR and 4K video capture, while the front camera is 5MP and can take selfies at night with LED flash.

The Moto X Force has a longer battery life, as its supported capacity is 3760 mAh. The Moto X Style houses a 3000 mAh battery which should perform decently.
