We have two early contenders for the heavyweight modular smartphone title, and unfortunately, neither one is an actual fruit of Google’s not-yet-ready-for-primetime Project Ara. Far more simplistic in execution, the LG G5 and Motorola Moto Z deserve equal praise in their bold quest for differentiation, customization and added productivity compared to traditional high-end Androids.

But at the end of the day, there can only be one in the pocket of a modular tech enthusiast, and Pocketnow senior editor Juan Bagnell aims to make the choice as easy as possible with a good old fashioned hands-on video smackdown.

As you can guess, these two powerhouses have plenty in common, like any other two random flagship devices from top-tier OEMs, sharing the same processor, RAM count, base storage, microSD support, biometric authentication method, and pre-installed OS version.

Then again, the Marshmallow skins differ greatly, the Quad HD displays aren’t as similar as they sound, while in order to tell which camera and battery deliver superior performance and endurance times, you absolutely need to test the phones in real life. Last but not least, Moto Mods vs. LG Friends! Who wins in terms of convenience and functionality? Check out our Moto Z vs LG G5 comparison video to get a rough idea:
