Nexus 5 vs Moto X (Video)

If you’re one of the few to reside in a market where both Google’s Nexus 5 and Motorola’s Moto X occupy store shelves, consider yourself lucky: you’ve got access to two of the best Android smartphones the world has ever known. But as always, there’s a dark side to that kind of luck. Because if you’re in the market for a new smartphone, you’re stuck with a pretty tough choice between these two capable rivals. In a world where “Nexus” doesn’t mean what it once did, Motorola calls itself “a Google company,” and phones with top-tier processors go for $349 off-contract, how can you trust yourself to make the right choice? Boy howdy, it’s rough out there for would-be phone buyers.

Fortunately, Pocketnow is here to help you out. If location, circumstance, or the persuasive power of the purse hasn’t made the decision for you already, we have some thoughts on which of these devices may be the better fit for you. Similar in some ways and decidedly disparate in others, these top offerings from LG and Motorola are already finding homes in pockets the world over – the only question is, which one do you want in your pocket now? (Hawwww.)
