Moto X 2014 vs. LG G3 Comparison

Design and Display:

The Moto X 2014 reveals that motorola has gone for more a premium and elegant feel than the G2. It has a glass front and back on both sides, with a metal frame, and while the bottom of it really looks like an iPhone, the rest of the design looks pretty much like any other gen series so far.

The LG G3 is a beautiful device, with a great screen-to-body ratio, but the brushed-metal effect plastic feels cheaper than the glass behind of the X The LG G3’s design isn’t bad by any means, but Samsung has really upped the ante with its S6.With the moto you’ll be looking at a 5.2-inch QHD display delivering 1080×1920 resolution. This is the same resolution as the LG G3 but in a smaller frame, with the G3 display stretching to 5.5-inches. There’s no doubt that the screens in both phones look fantastic, and which you prefer will depend on your own tastes. The LG G3 display is bigger, but Moto X’s Super AMOLED display has superior brightness, contrast and pixel density.


The Moto X boosts Samsung’s own Exynos 5 series processor, which is an eight-core, 64-bit chipset. The LG runs on a Snapdragon 801 with four cores clocked at 2.5 GHz. The Moto X has 2 GB of RAM and the LG G3 has 2 GB or 3 GB depending on which model you buy accordingly.

Moto X chipset is even more powerful than Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processor, which in turn is a serious step up from the Snapdragon 801 powering the G3. Because of this, performance-wise, the Moto X is technically far superior.


The Moto X’s rear camera is a 13Â MP snapper with optical image stabilization, while the front camera is 2Â MP. Like the quality found in Moto X’s display, the Moto XÂ camera is a real beauty, and probably the best on Android. Check its low-light capabilities in our Moto XÂ vs iPhone 6 camera comparison.

The LG G3 rear camera is 13 MP with OIS, and the front one is 2.1 MP. It’s a fast and accurate performer – with record-breaking auto-focus speeds.So in terms of camera,Moto X really is a world beater.


The Moto X has a 2,300 mAh battery. It sounds small – and it’s smaller than the one in the S5 (2800 mAh) – but apparently Moto X has optimized its 64-bit processors to the point that the smaller battery should deliver the same battery life. The Moto X can also charge wirelessly, and is said to add 4 hours of battery life in just a 10 minute (wired) charge. We’re keeping our fingers crossed on that one, but we won’t know how it performs for sure until our final review.

The LG G3’s battery is larger at 3000 mAh, and it’s a strong performer, given the QHD screen it powers. The elusive “two-day” benchmark is definitely achievable with the G3, and it sits in our best Android smartphone battery list. LG’s battery might last longer than the Moto XÂ in a straight head-to-head, but it will be interesting to see if Moto X’s quick-charge claims hold up when tested fully.


The LG G3 comes in 16 GB and 32 GB variants, both of which have the ability to expand via microSD cards. The Moto X comes in 32 GB, 64 GB variants, but there is no microSD card support. With 128GB microSD cards being commonplace these days, you can expand your LG G3’s storage capacity to outdo even the pricey 64 GB Moto X.


Moto XÂ takes back that lead in connectivity.Both are 4G phones, with theLG supporting more bands for roaming but the Moto X first gen theoretically faster with Cat 6 (up to 300Mb/s) rather than Cat 4 (up to 150Mb/s) 4G. The pair also support 802.11ac Wi-Fi (2×2 MIMO for Samsung), Bluetooth 4.0 (4.1 for the Note 4) and GPS. TheLG adds MHL, an IR blaster and Moto X’s Download Booster, which combines the power of 4G and Wi-Fi for faster downloads.

Both these smartphones have fingerprint scanners, but only the Moto XÂ is sold with a built-in heart-rate monitor and UV sensor, and comes with an S Pen stylus.

Conclusion whether which one is the best:Â Moto XÂ or the LG G3. We obviously can’t say anything yet.The truth is that that Moto XÂ series and the LG series haven’t had all that much in common in recent years, but now Moto appears to be targeting the one area of other smartphones.

With a metal chassis and divisive touches like the lack of microSD support and waterproofing, not to mention a non-removable battery, the Moto XÂ design is closer to the iPhone.


The LG G3 starts at 385 USD for the 16 GB carrier-unlocked version. We don’t know the official Moto X US pricing details yet, but in Europe it will be 279 for 32GB and 25630 in INR.
