Motorola Moto X vs LG Google Nexus 4


A comparison between Motorola Moto X and LG Nexus 4 just makes sense. Why? They both are products of Google. Their respective version of Android is totally stock, no fancy UI and hence less of lag or no lag. Moto X is really amazing with it’s software integration, it is less of pure Android than the one on Nexus 4. This is battle royal, Motorola Moto X vs LG Nexus 4.


I love what Motorola has done with the Moto X’s structural design, a nice curved back to give you a nice comfortable grip. They have given you not only choice of the back cover but also you can choose the front panel colour as well. You also have full control on the edge design colours as well, all and all it makes 500+ possible combinations. The built is really of top quality and no complaints at all. From the front, both the phones look identical, no kidding. Nexus 4 has a rather much flatter back with a better quality glass back. The rubbery edges don’t feel that great though. Design- Motorola Moto X.


The Moto X has a 4.7 inch 720×1280 pixels display; it gives it a density of 312ppi. The display looks really clean. It has amazing colours and just the right sharpness. The viewing angles are great on this display as well. Nexus 4 also has a 4.7 inch display with a resolution of 768×1280 pixels which gives this a pixel density of 318ppi. Even this one just similar, they really have the same good points and bad. Both give you equal bliss at videos and gaming. Purely going on the display, it is a tie.


This one is going to be the easiest one so far. Somehow Motorola has managed to screw up the camera. Overall it takes decent shots but I am talking decent in terms of a proper Nokia Lumia 620 quality. This is terrible for a phone of this price. Day shots are good but even in just a tad less of lighting and you can see the photos getting grainy. Nexus 4 on the other hand, not the best of the camera but significantly better than Moto X. There is this crazy way to open camera from anywhere in the phone, take the phone, twist your wrists and bam, you have the camera open. Camera- LG Nexus 4.


If last one was a washout for Moto X, this one is going to be for Nexus 4. Moto X runs on the Android v4.2.2 Jelly Bean which is the same as Nexus 4 but, Nexus 4 is upgradable to Android v4.3 Jelly Bean. Moto X has the best voice assistant I would say, it is totally free. You train it with your voice and then you can keep it 10 feet away, and still make it do things without having to touch it. Just shout it’s name and there it is. It is so useful with in their driving tool too. The display will illuminate only the info of the notification that you need. It saves lots of battery power. Nexus 4 on the other hand does not have any of this stuff. Software- Motorola Moto X.


Motorola Moto X runs on a Snapdragon clocked at 1.7 GHz and is Quad Core and Nexus 4 on a Quad Core 1.5GHz Snapdragon. When you use them, they are equally fast. Nexus 4 is just a little smoother in the long run. Both have NFC and Bluetooth v4.0. None of them provide you with an option of expandable memory. In a way it’s a good thing, you won’t overload it and the phone will perform the way it is supposed to. Battery life, Moto X smashes Nexus 4 with it’s 540h+ of standby compared to Nexus 4’s 390h. Moto X’s battery life is gold in smartphones. Performance- Motorola Moto X.

Final Verdict

LG Nexus 4 was competitive but Motorola Moto X takes this one. I love that it has actual features that make sense and makes this a “smartphone” unlike Samsung’s unnecessary RAM eating features which makes far less sense. I love everything about Moto X except its price. Why is a mid range phone priced like a higher end phone? As Motorola, but I would close my eyes and pay for the amazing smart features. Motorola Moto X vs LG Nexus 4- Motorola Moto X wins.
