Moto X Style vs Samsung Galaxy S6 vs LG G4: Specs comparison


Well, folks, Motorola has announced its flagship for 2015 – the sleek-looking Moto X Style. The new handset made a huge jump in display size – from the 5.2” of the Moto X (2014) to 5.7” this year. To keep the resolution crisp, Motorola opted to go the QHD route, giving the phone a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The phone's hardware is, of course, also bumped up to stay on track with current tech trends – a 64-bit processor and 3 GB of RAM can be found under the hood.

Motorola made it a point to compare its new flagship to the Samsung Galaxy S6 throughout the presentation. So, we figured, why not continue the trend and put up a quick specs comparison between the two. And, since we are doing this, we decided to throw in the LG G4 as well – another popular flagship that totes the Snapdragon 808 SoC.

Looking at this comparison, it looks like the Moto X Style would be quite the bang-for-buck if our estimates are correct. Motorola announced that it'd be $200 - $300 cheaper than flagship devices from “companies like Apple and Samsung”. So, we assume that the Moto X Style should cost somewhere around $400. See how it compares – what do you think?
