Nexus 5X vs Moto X Style – Choose Between High End Hardware Devices


The smartphone market is filled with hundreds of great devices that are equipped with high end hardware and impressive designs and for that reason choosing a new gadget can be quite hard when there’s such a huge array of devices from where the customer can choose from. Right now we will take a look over two of the best Android devices that are also affordable, and the devices are Google’s own Nexus 5X and Motorola’s Moto X Pure Edition.


The Nexus 5X is powered by Qualcomm’s hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor that clocks at 2.0 GHz and is paired with 2GB of RAM. On the other hand the Moto X Style Pure Edition is powered by the same hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor that clocks at 1.8 GHz and is paired with 3GB of RAM. It seems that while the Nexus 5X processor clocks at higher speed, the Moto X Style is paired with an additional 1GB of RAM.


The Nexus 5X is equipped with a 12.3MP rear camera, while the Moto X Style sports a bigger 21MP camera that’s equipped with more additional sensors than the Nexus one. Worth mentioning is that neither of the devices have optical image stabilization (OIS).

Operating System

The Moto X runs on the old Android 5.1.1 Lollipop OS, but Motorola is known for regularly updating their devices, so we can expected that the OS version will change over time. As expected, because the Nexus 5X is made by Google it runs on the newer Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS. If we look closely at the two operating systems, they are not that different, the major differences are aesthetic ones.


Both devices are considered as some of the most affordable smartphones, and the difference between them is only $21. The Moto X is priced around $400 and the cheaper Nexus 5X can be bought for the price of $378. The prices are very close to each other, and customers should not use that as decisive factor, and rather choose the device that fits their needs the most.
