Moto X4 specs comparison versus Nokia 6 and the Samsung Galaxy A5 (2017): Viable mid-rangers

4

Just yesterday at the penultimate day leading to IFA 2017, Lenovo officially unveiled its newest mid-ranger, the Moto X4, and boy, is it a noteworthy one!

Packing a power-efficient Snapdragon 630 chipset running at 2.2GHz and a 5.2-inch 1080p display up front, the new performer is powered by a 3,000mAh battery that will certainly keep the lights on for a long time. With a dual camera setup at the rear, pairing one 12MP and another 8MP shooter for shallow depth of field emulation, as well as a 16MP selfie camera, either 3 or 4GB of RAM with 32/64GB of storage, and finally, IP68 water-certification for improved resistance against liquids.

So far, the Moto X4 looks like a viable contender for the top spots on the mid-range market, but let's not forget it has some serious competition ahead of itself. Let's see how it compares against the Nokia 6 and the Galaxy A5 (2017).
