Motorola Moto X 2014 vs Apple iPhone 6


We take on the two of the most recent flagships released. One side we have one of the best from Android- Motorola Moto X 2014 and on the other the Apple powerhouse that sucked the iPhone stock dry, the Apple iPhone 6. First stage of your decision is surely going to be if you want Android or do you prefer iOS but for everything else I hope this will give you clarity.


If anyone can come close to design and built on the Apple iPhone is by the HTC. Motorola Moto X 2014 though a good phone with better design that last year, nothing can beat the look and feel of an Apple iPhone 6. One hand we have the beautiful smooth metal on the iPhone 6 and on the other a good wooden or leather back panel. You just cannot deny the feel that the metal gives, aluminum in particular. Moto X 2014 has metal edges and still it is just not enough to give you that soothing feel. Design and Built Quality surely goes to the Apple iPhone 6.


Apple iPhone 6 has a 4.7 inch 720p Retina HD display and the Motorola Moto X has a 5.2 inch 1080p display. You can easily make out that Apple display has the better colour saturation and warmth. It is so much better. Moto X display looks a bit dull in colour compared to the Apple iPhone 6. There is no denying the Moto X 2014 has a denser display but still it is just not distinctive. There is a significant size difference between a 4.7 inch display and a 5.2 inch display. If you want more of the entertainment then you might tend to a larger Moto X 2014 display but at the same time the smaller 4.7 is still large enough and way more beautiful to give you the same. Which one is the better display? Apple iPhone 6.


This is the easiest choice you will ever have to make. If you care about the camera too much or even enough to change your decision, you can close your eyes and buy the Apple iPhone 6. The 8MP camera on the Apple iPhone 6 is simply brilliant. Moto X 2014 has a 13MP camera which just cannot match the brilliance of the Apple iPhone 6. Moto X 2014 has dull shots and is grainy in any condition which is not well lit. Apple has worked a lot on the camera. It comes with new Pixel Focus that is so fast that it seamlessly focuses as you move your phone around, you cannot even see that lag in your hand and the focus. It also has 240fps slow motion video feature which is simply stunning. And an Apple camera captures the true colours of nature. It is the most accurate camera in the market for saturation and colour. You just cannot beat it.


Moto X 2014 has the vanilla v4.4.4. KitKat Android OS whereas the Apple iPhone 6 comes from the iOS ecosystem running iOS 8. I really would leave it up to you to decide if you want Android or iOS. I am biased and I will select iOS any day but it is really about what you prefer. iOS 8’s feature are far more superior in terms on innovation and Android has nothing like it.


Apple iPhone 6 has a 2nd generation 64 bit chip the Apple A8 along with M8 motion processor. Moto X has the amazing Snapdragon 801 processor. Which one is faster? Apple A8. But you don’t really feel that speed difference as it is a difference ecosystems and all the flagships have enough juice to make your experience as smooth as it can be. Moto X and Apple iPhone 6 both do not have expandable storages. Apple gives you 16GB, 64GB and 128GB storages and Moto X gives you 32GB and 64GB models. They have similar battery life as well hence I would call this a tie.

Overall Winner: Apple iPhone 6
