New Motorola Moto X size comparison: against Samsung Galaxy S5, Note 4, LG G3, Xperia Z315
Motorola launched the Moto X last year as the different Android flagship. The original Moto X had a comparatively small, 4.7" display and a much more compact body than all of its rivals. Motorola pointed out that this was intentional: it wanted its flagship to be easily operable with a single hand, something that you could not say for most of its rivals. Many even compared the original 4.7" Moto X with the 4" iPhone as Motorola managed to make a device with small bezels and comparable dimensions.
This year, the new Moto X is here and it is no longer small: it has a sizeably larger, 5.2" display, and while it is still surprisingly compact for its display size, it is not exactly ideal for use with a single hand.
The new Moto X: compact for a 5.2-incher, still larger than the old Moto XAt the same time, it's worth paying special attention to the nice curvy back of the Moto X+1. While technically, you'd see that the phone is listed as being 9.9mm thick, that's only the size at the thickest point. At the edges, the thickness drops down to a very slim 3.8mm, which makes it much more comfortable to hold the device as it lays comfortably in the hand.
To help you better understand the change in size, we are comparing the dimensions and thickness of the new Moto X against its predecessor and a bunch of other devices that it will inevitably clash with on the market: the Samsung Galaxy S5, Note 4, LG G3, Sony Xperia Z3, and a few others. Take a look and let us know your thoughts about this new size of the Moto X: better or worse than before?
