The Moto G is one of those smartphones that offer a great experience and it costs lesser than the three devices which are, at the moment, the most popular high-end devices. But you should give the Moto G a chance to prove what it’s capable of!
The Samsung Galaxy S5’s carcass is made of polycarbonate thermoplastic and it’s full of “dimples” all over its back, the Xperia Z2 has a glassy look, while the Moto G 4G’s carcass is metallic. There’s also a Moto G “Ferrari Edition” that comes with the logo of the famous brand.
The Moto G’s size is of 4.5 inches, which makes it very comfortable to hold. The other smartphones are bigger – their displays having the size of 5 inches, and you’ll have to use both of your hands to operate on them.
The Galaxy S5 and Xperia Z2 have in common the dust and water proof features, and in addition, the Galaxy S5 has a fingerprint scanner, just like the iPhone 5S. The Moto G doesn’t have any of these features, but costs a lot less money that these devices.
Hardware Performance, Battery and Camera
The Moto G’s screen supports a resolution of only 720×1,280pixels, while the other three smartphones have screens that can render a resolution of 1,080×1,920pixels.
The Moto G comes with a Snapdragon 400 processor, which is less powerful than the other smartphones’ Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processors. But if you’re one of those users who can’t keep their hands off a phone, then the Moto G isn’t the best option for them.
Sony Xperia Z2 has the longest battery life, because it has a capacity of 3200 mAh. The Moto G has a battery that can last up to 24 hours if you use it moderately, while the One M8 and the Galaxy S5 last lesser.
The Moto G doesn’t have an extraordinary camera, so don’t put your hopes in this phone if you want to take the best photos. The Xperia Z2 and the Galaxy S5 are the only ones that can record 4K videos.
The only thing that all four smartphones have in common is the possibility to expand the internal memory.
All four devices run on the Android KitKat operating system, but the Xperia Z2 and the Moto G have less UI customization, while the HTC One M8 and the Galaxy S5 are customized with HTC’s Sense 6.0 UI and Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.
