Moto X 2015 vs Galaxy Note 4: 5 Key Differences

Published

Screen Size

Screen Size

The Galaxy Note 4 and Motorola's all-new Moto X Pure Edition for 2015 actually have the same size screen, something no Moto owners expected. They both have large 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad-HD screens that look amazing, and are extremely high resolution.

However, the Moto X is actually the smaller device, or should be, thanks to extremely thin bezels and on-screen buttons. But, as we mentioned before, that means the Note 4 will have more screen you can use, as Moto's on-screen buttons take up some space.

The image above was provided by Motorola showing how small its large 5.7-inch Moto X actually is. This means that you'll get the same size screen in a smaller package, making the Moto X easier to hold and use. If size is an issue but you want a big screen, consider the Moto X.

    Am I the only person who sees the IR Remote Function as a pretty huge plus? I’m considering moving from a Note 3 to the new Moto X, which I don’t think has IR. It’s not a deal breaker, but I think it’s one of the more underrated features of the galaxy series and the LG G series.

    I also have the Note 3 and i’m also thinking of buying the Moto X. But I don’t really use the IR Remote. It’s a difficult decision, Note 5, Nexus 6 or 5 2515, Moto X, etc…

    I have the G3 and had the HTC One M7 before that and, while the IR function was nice and handy, it was never a must-have feature for me. I like the idea of a touchscreen remote, but found it to be rather awkward and frustrating at times. Without the tactile queues, you have to start at your device to know what you’re pressing, and unless there is an audible tone that indicates you’ve pressed the button, you have no idea if it registered your press. Couple that with the fact that the IR sensor is much smaller on these phones than on an actual remote, so the device has to be pointed almost directly at the IR sensor on the TV to consistently work. Having to hold my phone almost parallel with the floor and looking down at it became too much of a bother to be practical or efficient so I always find myself reaching out for the regular remote. Unless it’s missing or the batteries are dead, I don’t use my phone’s IR capabilities for anything other than showing off to my iPhone-having family and friends.

      Ugh, darn you, SwiftKey…..that should say tactile CUES and stare, not start at your device.

    Any idea whether the Moto will be USB 3.1 Type C compliant? That’s a deal breaker for me.

      It will not have 3.1 type c as it has turbo charging which type c does not support.

    I actually have both (I know, I’m a tech nerd). I think the Moto X is easier to hold. It feels better in the hand. The active notifications all also nice. The Note 4 is a better productivity phone (due to the stylus). I love them both.

    Sent my Nexus P6 back mainly since it does not support Miracast. I can’t use chromecast at my farmhouse since I have only wireless streaming and no other internet. Miracast has it’s own embedded wireless signal. Also, the nexus doesn’t have a gallery or a battery percent on the home screen. Unforgivable. Back to my Note 4. The Nexus is a great phone except for the above. Merritt
