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
2015 Moto X Pure Edition Specs
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.
