Moto X vs Note 5: Specs

If you're debating whether or not to buy one of these big screen "phablets" one thing to consider is the specs. Rather than going through them one at a time, here's one big breakdown of everything these phones have to offer.

Galaxy Note 5 Specs

  • 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad-HD S-AMOLED Display
  • Samsung Exynos 8-core processor with 4GB of RAM
  • 32, 64GB storage options (no Micro-SD slot)
  • 16 Megapixel OIS Camera
  • 5 Megapixel front-facing camera
  • Android 5.1 Lollipop
  • Premium Galaxy S6-like all glass and aluminum design
  • Fingerprint scanner
  • Heart rate sensor, IR sensor, more
  • 3,000 mAh battery with fast & wireless charging
  • S-Pen Stylus
  • more

2015 Moto X Pure Edition Specs
  • 5.7-inch 2560 x 1440 Quad-HD Display
  • 6-core Snapdragon 808 processor with 3GB of RAM
  • 16/32/64 GB of Storage with a Micro-SD slot for expandable storage
  • 21 Megapixel F2.0 Rear and 5 Megapixel Front Camera (front and rear LED flash)
  • 4k Video, HDR Video, Slo-Mo Video and more
  • Pure stock Android 5.1.1 Lollipop
  • Dual Stereo Sound front speakers
  • Aluminum Design
  • 3,000 mAh battery with the world’s fastest “TurboPower” charging
  • Unlocked with Universal 4G LTE (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, etc.)
  • Water-repellent coating
  • MotoMaker Customization

As you can see above they have the same size screen, both will have aluminum designs for a more premium look and feel, and run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop but that's where similarities end.

The Note 5 has more power, a fingerprint scanner, the S-Pen stylus, and is a premium device with all glass and aluminum. At the same time that kills the chance of having a micro-SD slot.

The Moto X matches the screen and battery size, promises even faster charging, and offers tons of customization. They kept the micro-SD slot for expandable storage, and dual front-facing speakers for improved sound. The Moto X has a bigger 21 megapixel camera, but megapixels aren't everything. The Note 5 has won a few awards already, but independent reviews online say the Moto X has the second best camera behind the Galaxy S6, and ahead of the iPhone 6. So keep that in mind.  And don't forget the price, which we'll get to in a moment.

    Motorola offers $25/mo for 24 month financing so similar to financing by carriers – insurance is $80 for 2 years coverage. So much better than the carriers and it’s truly unlocked so no longer prisoner to Verizon and it is CDMA compatible
