Moto X vs Nexus 4 vs HTC One specs comparison

0. phoneArena posted on 01 Aug 2013, 15:15

Moto X seems to be this year's best candidate for a Nexus phone in everything but in name and maybe price, as Google likely didn't wan't every Android maker to freak out if it does a Nexus handset with the subsidiary Motorola, after swearing it won't play favorites...

Are you sure it doesn´t have microSD? Other sites are reporting otherwise

I´ve read that too, maybe they think the nano sim slot is for the micro sd

i'll disagree on the screen; there's no substitution for resolution. Even if I can't see an individual pixel at 1080p, that doesn't mean the difference is imperceptible.

Go get a 720p phone screen and put it next to a 1080p one, the difference is nada as long as everything is identical besides the resolution.

The real world difference: 1080p screen sucks up more battery and kills more gpu performance for very little gain.

Fortunately the screens on these 1080p phones seem to be doing fine battery wise, the Butterfly relieving the apprehension for the first time
But i get your point! Overkilling is not worth it unless it fetches something worthwhile
Ill prefer an option to save some money with a 720p screen rather than pay more for a Full HD for the exact same phone

The resolution difference is more noticeable when you compare large PenTile AMOLED screens. I think the Galaxy S4 looks infinitely clearer than the S3, but that's because a 4.8" PenTile 720 still has jaggies from the subpixel arrangement. I think if you put a One X side by side with a One, it won't be as noticeable an improvement.

As for the Moto X, with it not being PenTile, it should be clearer than the S3 but not as finely detailed as the brute-pixel-force S4.

I think htc one is better out of the three. It would be no comparison if the ONE had atleast 8 or 10 ultrapixel,but oh well maybe next year.

I thought the HTC One is running DDR2?
