Apple iPhone 5s vs Motorola Moto X
Let’s cut to the chase folks! The customizable aspect of the Moto X’s design is undoubtedly something that helps to make it more intriguing than the iPhone 5s, especially when Apple’s prodigy has a recycled design. In fact, we’re astounded by the level of control and personalization that the Moto X brings to the table, giving certain customers (AT&T to be exact right now) the ability to select different patterns and colors to make each phone unique. In comparison, the iPhone 5s sports the more premium design between the two, which is attributed to its brushed aluminum casing and sturdy construction. As a whole, though, there’s nothing new with its design – except for its new color options.
Even though the two are comparatively sized, making them very easy to grasp with a single hand, there’s more of a natural feel with the Moto X – thanks partly to its curved rear casing. Our hands still take a liking to the iPhone 5s too, but its chamfered edges feel sharp. Moreover, we’re totally impressed by how closely the Moto X matches the iPhone 5s’ size, even more when it’s packing a larger display.
With its diverse color combinations combined with its ergonomic design, we find the Moto X to have the more interesting design – easily catching the attention of any bystander.
Looking around the sides of both phones, they pretty much boast the same set of buttons of ports. However, we actually prefer the power and volume controls on the iPhone 5s, mainly because they’re larger and more distinctive to the touch.
Relying on different display technologies, IPS LCD for the iPhone 5s and AMOLED with the Moto X, they have their unique characteristics that make them stand out. For starters, we get those typical saturated colors with the AMOLED display of the Moto X, as well as its wide viewing angles and deep black color, but the iPhone 5s’ IPS LCD display offers the more realistic colors and superior outdoor visibility.
Ultimately though, it’s a matter of what actually pleases your eyes more. Some will vouch for the punchy and glowing color tones of the Moto X’s display, while others prefer the superior outdoor visibility of the iPhone 5s.
