They’re both oversized Android smartphones with Motorola logos, but don’t let the superficial similarity fool you. The newest Moto X is an entirely different beast than the aging Google flagship, and while we recently deemed the Nexus 6 still worth a buy when considered in a vacuum, Motorola’s newest contender might signify a sea change. The Moto X Pure Edition brings a brighter display, a better camera, higher-end hardware and more customizability than any other Android phone out there – and it sports a svelter casing and a lower price tag than the Nexus 6 to boot.
Can the Nexus 6’s few advantages –wireless charging, AMOLED display and a purer-than-pure Android experience– protect it from a trouncing by its new sibling? Which of these should you consider picking up if you’re in the market for a new Android smartphone? Just how important is a deeper dimple when it comes to Motorola smartphone design?
