Samsung Galaxy S4 vs Motorola Moto X


Moto X is the most under rated phone of all time. Believe me, if someone deserves the title of “smart” phone, it has to be the Moto X. It is so exciting is so many ways. Samsung Galaxy S4 also has some amazing features that make it a beast of a phone. This battle would be really worth it. Motorola Moto X vs Samsung Galaxy SIV.


Samsung Galaxy S4 has a polycarbonate built. The back is really smooth and flexible. In many ways it is a nicely built phone but still feels a bit cheap on a flagship. Motorola Moto X looks more Nexus 4-ish. On the front it looks just the same, not to forget Google owns Motorola now. But the back panel built is much better than the Nexus 4. It is nicely curved and fits amazingly well in your hands. You can select from fron panel covers to back panel colours and bezel colours, in total there are 504 combinations! Design- Motorola Moto X.


Motorola Moto X has a 4.7 inch 720p display. Samsung Galaxy S4 has a full HD 5 inch display. Both of them are amazingly beautiful. They project the icons in great sharpness and the background just seamlessly mergers with everything else. Video playback is better on the Samsung Galaxy S4. The software that goes into Moto X is awesome. For notifications it will only illuminate the parts of the display necessary. Such things make it better. Display- Motorola Moto X.


There is no way Moto X can match the camera awesoness of the Samsung Galaxy S4. It is known to take really amazing images in most of the conditions. They are simply stunning. It has great detailing and nice colours. Moto X is kinda not so cool for a camera on a mid ranged phone. Most of the images are quiet noisy and does not come great. There is this feature in which you just twist your wrist to unveil the camera. Samsung’s 13MP sensor easily wins against the 8MP on MOTO X in both images and video.


This is going to be a tough one. Both run on the Android v4.2.2 Jelly Bean. Samsung Galaxy S4 has really cool features. Smart Pause and Smart Stay are display related and help you in many Ways. With Smart Pause, it will pause the video when you are not looking. Smart Stay will make the display illuminated till you are looking at it. Air Gesture and Air View are really of no use I would say but kind of ok features. Moto X has this hands free assistant which is by far one of the best we have seen. It can learn your voice and accent effectively and will respond accordingly. It also is very handy while you drive because you can just speak and it will do the job, without even touching the phone. If you are in the area where it can hear your voice, you just say “Okay Google Now” and it ill come to your command. The display only shows the info that is needed during notification check or simply while checking time. Software- Moto X, the virtual assistant just wins.


I love the way Moto X works. Though it has a very decent Quad Core chip compared to the massive Octa Core on the Samsung Galaxy S4, you don’t feel the difference much. Rather on the long run, the Moto X’s processor is more durable and better optimized. S4 surely multitasks more effectively and on gaming terms, is a much better performer. Moto X has a battery life much greater than the S4 or for a matter of fact than any other smartphone in this league. They both have Bluetooth, NFC and expandable memory. Performance- Motorola Moto X.

Final Verdict

Motorola Moto X is the winner here. The smartphone is an actual smartphone with the best battery back up. I could really use the hands free and always hearing voice assistant. It just works really well. I love the display and the colour combinations but I detest the display. Overall I prefer it over Samsung Galaxy S4.
