Moto X vs. iPhone 5S
Transcript of Moto X vs. iPhone 5S
by Kinllen Peng and Ryan Tsau
Today, Apple is one of the world's largest companies. Each year, they produce millions of phones, tablets, and computers. But does that really mean that they're always the best? Another company that is rapidly advancing in the mobile phone industry is Motorola. It is not as renowned as Apple is, and Motorola is clearly the underdog to Apple. But, again, does that mean Apple is better?
Today, we'll take a look at these two companies' most recent smartphones. Recently in September 2013, Apple released the iPhone 5S. Motorola Mobility released the Moto X in August 2013.
Pricing and Storage
First, let's take a look at the pricing and storage of the two phones. The iPhone 5S is offered in 16, 32, and 64 GB versions, priced at $200, $300, and $400, respectively. On the other hand, the Moto X is offered in 16 and 32 GB versions, at $50 and $100, respectively. Even though the Moto X does not come in a 64 GB storage, it comes with 50 GB of complementary cloud storage via Google Drive, compared to the 5 GB of storage on iCloud with the iPhone 5S. In total, that's 66/82 GB for the Moto X, versus 21/37/69 GB for the iPhone 5S.
With the Moto X, you get more storage, and you pay a quarter the price of the iPhone 5S.
Display and Dimensions
The displays of both the Moto X and iPhone 5S come in the standard smartphone aspect ratio of 16:9. The iPhone 5S has a 4" Multi-Touch Retina Display. The Moto X, however, is slightly larger, with a 4.7" Multi-Touch AMOLED RGB Display. Seven tenths of an inch might not seem like whole it, but it is when dealing with smartphones. 4.7" is a 17.5% increase from 4". The iPhone 5S has a display of 1136x640px, or 640p. On the other hand, the Moto X is fully optimized for HD 720p, with a display of 1280x720px.
The Moto X is a tad larger than the iPhone 5S, weighing in at 130 g (4.59 oz) with dimensions of 129.3 x 65.3 x 10.4 mm (5.09 x 2.57 x 0.41 in), with the iPhone 5S at 112 g (3.95 oz) with dimensions of 123.8 x 58.6 x 7.6 mm (4.87 x 2.31 x 0.30 in).
To sum up, you get a larger display with a higher resolution on a bigger phone with the Moto X.
When you use these phones, you can notice a few performance differences. This is affected by your apps, and more importantly, your processor. The iPhone 5S comes with a RAM of 1GB, but the Moto X comes with a much better 2GB RAM processor. Each uses their own chip, Apple with an Apple A7 and Motorola with a Motorola X8 Mobile Computing System. Another difference is the OS (Operating System). The iPhone 5S runs on iOS 7 chip, and the Moto X runs off of Android Jelly Bean (4.2.2) with a planned update to KitKat (4.4) in February or March. The OS difference makes the experience difficult to compare, as each runs completely differently. Also, the processors can have sensors to check things such as your car's speed or what angle it is being held at. Apple's iPhone 5S comes with Accelerometer, Gyro, Proximity, Compass, and TouchID sensors. The Moto X comes with Accelerometer, Gyro, Proximity, Compass, Barometer, and Temperature sensors. You will notice that each one has a few different sensors. The iPhone 5S has its TouchID sensor, and the Moto X has temperature and barometer sensors.
Camera and Battery
Both the Moto X and iPhone 5S have front and back facing cameras. The iPhone 5S' rear camera has a resolution of 8 MP, or 3264x2448pxs, featuring autofocus and dual-LED flash. In contrast, the Moto X has a 10 MP rear camera, at 4320x2432pxs, also featuring autofocus and LED flash. The iPhone 5S' camera has a pixel size of 1.5 µm, with additional features of touch focus, geo-tagging, face detection, and HDR. The Moto X's camera has a smaller pixel size of 1.4 µm (smaller pixels means higher resolution), with the same additional features as the 5S - touch focus, geo-tagging, face detection, and HDR.
The Moto X uses a Li-Ion 2200 mAh battery that lasts up to 576 hours on standby with 13 hours of talk time. On the other hand, the iPhone 5S' battery is non-removable and only has 1560 mAh, with only up to 250 hours on standby and 10 hours of talk time. The Moto X also comes with an "Always On" feature. This allows you to see notifications immediately at all times, along with the feature of touch-free voice controls by saying "Okay Google". With this feature, you can call, set alarms, play music, and so on.
The iPhone 5S comes in 3 colors - Space Gray, Silver, and Gold. In contrast, the Moto X is fully customizable - there are over 300 ways to, just with color! Also, the Moto X's Chrome browser runs off of HTML 5, while the iPhone 5S' Safari only runs on standard HTML. In addition, the Moto X has a Java MIDP emulator, enabling Java interfaces on its browser, while the 5S does not have Java.
