Moto G 2015 vs Moto X 2014: 5 Key Differences





In 2014 the Moto X was released as a premium flagship Android smartphone, but one of its weakest links was in the camera department. The Moto X had a pretty mediocre camera, one that didn't compare well with the competition. This year they've improved it to a huge 21 megapixel camera. Oddly enough this year the cheap Moto G has a better camera setup than the premium Moto X in 2014.

The Moto X (2nd Gen) had a 13 megapixel rear and 2.1 megapixel front camera. There was no optical image stabilization like some of the competition, and the camera lacked considering the $499 price tag.

The Moto G for 2015, has the same 13 megapixel camera on the back, a dual LED flash, and a 5 megapixel camera on the front. Our initial testing has been rather positive, and offering those cameras for the low $179 price should make all potential buyers happy. The Moto G should deliver nearly the same camera experience, if not a slightly better one, all for less money.

    You are listing superficial things as the main differences, and completely ignoring critical technical differences that ou will notice day to day, such as 802.11ac vs n wifi, or amoled screen & impact on notifications, or only having touchless (moto voice) on one. This is a dangerously misleading article IMO
