HTC One A9 vs Motorola Moto G (2015) vs Google Nexus 5X: specs comparison

4

The HTC One A9 is a decent mid-range device that just got official during the Taiwanese company's recent live event. Touted as being a stunning, no-compromise smartphone, the One A9 enters a market that is quite saturated, and this goes without saying. 

While the top-tier end of said market usually gets more attention, the mid-range one is quite interesting on its own. One of the more recent entrants on the scene is the third generation of the Motorola Moto G, the heir of one of the best-selling devices of 2013. It supports the nifty Moto Maker, and brings improvements in speed and cameras. 

Additionally, Google unveiled the Nexus 5X a couple of weeks ago, which is a revamped and improved variation of 2013's Nexus 5, with LG behind the reins once again. While it's not out just yet, the Nexus 5X will most likely bask in popularity among the hordes of stock Android lovers.
