LG G2 vs Motorola Moto X

Camera


Sticking with the simplistic route with its operation, the Moto X doesn’t try to inundate us with a host of shooting modes or manual controls with its camera interface. Instead, it’s barebones and offers us minimal features. Oppositely though, the LG G2 is filled to the brim with so many camera shooting mode – with some being more practical than others. At the end of the day, it all comes down to choice: you can either go with the Moto X’s hassle-free experience, or the eclectic features of the LG G2.

So, we have the LG G2’s beefier 13-megapixel camera versus the Moto X’s 10-megapixel “Clear Pixel” camera. And of course, the question that remains is which one is better? Honestly, we can’t complain about the qualities with their outdoor shots, since it’s almost nearly identical with their precise details and good exposure. However, we realize the superior performance of the LG G2’s camera when we take photos under low lighting. Indeed, details are noticeably softer in tone with the two, but the Moto X has more distractive elements in its shots – like the amount of heavier noise and its muddy looking details.


Okay, we’ll admit that 1080p 60 fps video recording on the LG G2 is pretty sweet – something that’s rarely seen in the smartphone space. Plus, it has that cool new feature of track and zoom that hasn’t been seen before. Still, when it’s compared to the 1080p 30 fps recording of the Moto X, we notice that the LG G2’s videos have a lower exposure, which causes it to look considerably darker – resulting in some loss of details. Regardless of that, we still favor it slightly more than the Moto X, mainly because the Moto X’s results are a bit over exposed and artifacting elements are present when panning.



Multimedia


Out of the box, we have the Google Play Music app on board, but as an alternative for the LG G2, it comes packaged with its own home brewed one. Playing the same song and putting them to their maximum volume settings, our ears take notice of the stronger tones put out by the Moto X’s speaker. Also, even as we project their respective speakers towards us, we can still audibly hear the stronger output of the Moto X.

Having the larger and higher resolution screen benefits the LG G2 in the video watching department, as the two help to make the experience simply breathtaking. Well, the Moto X is still a pretty snazzy device on its own too, but since it’s smaller and has the lower resolution, it really can’t compete on the same level as its rival. Nonetheless, videos play smoothly on both – with no evidence of sluggishness!
