Apple iPhone 5s vs Motorola Moto X
iPhone 5s, we’re pleased more by its call quality, mainly because voices are distinct, clear, and audible through it. For its competition in the Moto X, call quality is somewhat underwhelming due to the robotic voices that it produces.
Using the two moderately, we’re able to get through a solid day of normal usage before their batteries are completely depleted. Therefore, neither one is able to out muscle the other in this area. Seriously though, we were hoping for just a little bit more juice out of them!
Most of the other recent flagship Android smartphones try to overpower the iPhone with their mighty specs sheet and insane amount of software features. With that in mind, we’re naturally taken by surprise with the Moto X’s decision of offering us a simpler Android experience – one that doesn’t try to throw numerous features that might be perceived as redundant. Instead, it’s an Android phone that we feel closely mimics the total experience we normally find with the iPhone. Plus, it helps that we find its unique set of software features to be more practical than anything that iOS 7 has to throw at us.
Without question, the iPhone 5s is going to be the smartphone that all other smartphones will try to overcome for the next one year. Some will falter at the process, while others will succeed with great progress. Honestly though, the iPhone 5s is the benchmark device that the competition looks at – mainly because it has that trifecta of what makes a smartphone great. Specifically, that entails a superb premium construction, strong performance in all categories, and a software experience that’s purely simple.
Taking a gander at their pricing, which is that usual golden on-contract price point of $200, it seems as though that the iPhone 5s delivers the vital goods to make it the superior all around performer. It’s not to say that the Moto X is by default inferior, but it just can’t compete against Apple’s pride and joy on the same level. Still, there are certain qualities of the phone that make it more appealing than the iPhone 5s. For starters, we love the customizable aspect of its design – enabling it to stand out profoundly over its rival. And then there’s the practical software features, like Touchless Control, that shows its worth over the iPhone 5s.
Ultimately, what we have here are two very simple smartphones that just work. So we’ll leave it at that.
