Starting today September 2nd the impressive new 2015 Moto X Pure Edition is available for pre-order at Motorola.com, and it aims to take on big devices like the Galaxy Note 5 all for a lower price. The new Moto X is taking a completely different approach to smartphone buying, and its big 5.7-inch screen and low $399 price tag should have it on all buyers radar.
Now that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 has been released and available for a few weeks, buyers are likely considering all of their options if they want a device with such a big screen. Now more than ever buyers have tons of options, and here we’ll be comparing Motorola’s new Moto X Pure Edition to the Galaxy Note 5.
No one expected the Moto X to compete with Samsung’s Note 5, but when Motorola announced the new Moto X on July 28th and revealed it had a 5.7-inch screen, not 5.2-inches like previous years, it instantly got thrown into the spotlight. If the $700+ Galaxy Note 5 is too expensive for some, the Moto X is a good alternative and below we’ll explain why.
On July 28th Motorola announced three new phones. The impressive $179 Moto G for 2015, the Moto X Play, and the Moto X Style. The Moto X Style is actually the new Moto X 3rd Gen for 2015, and is being sold in the United States as the Moto X Pure Edition starting today, September 2nd.
Both of these phones have a huge 5.7-inch display, plenty of processing power, and a few unique features or options to set them apart. Of course Samsung has the S-Pen stylus and an all aluminum and glass design, while Motorola offers more customization than any smartphone manufacturer on the planet. Check out our hands-on with the Galaxy Note 5, then enjoy the slideshow below with tons of details about both these new phablets available here as the summer ends in 2015.
