Motorola Moto X
The Moto X (2014) is seen as many as one of the best Android phones out there for many reasons, most of those reasons have to do with the build quality of the device as well as the time and effort that Motorola has put into making sure that the phone’s software is absolutely bullet proof. It doesn’t hurt that it is a completely customizable phone, unlike almost every other phone on the market, so you can make your phone unique to you and only you, like they did with the original Moto X.
The Moto X, like many of the phones of 2014 sports a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor and a 13 megapixel camera. All of this can be seen on a 5.2″ 1080P screen which is designed to compete with Sony’s Xperia Z3 that has a similar display. The Moto X is not waterproof nor does it have crazy good battery life, but the battery life is still fairly good for a smartphone of today even with a 2300 mAh battery. They did equip it with 4K video capability, which the LG G3 and Sony Xperai Z3 all have. In fact, all of the phones we picked have 4K video capturing capability, which is something we didn’t even think about when picking these phones.
And while it may not be waterproof like the Sony Xperia Z3, the 2014 Moto X is actually water resistant which should give the phone a better chance if it were to be dropped in water than a regular phone. It comes in 16 and 32 GB variants, but does not support an SD card slot like the Z3 Compact and LG G3. This means that you’re stuck with whatever storage you buy, the same goes for the OnePlus One, but the difference is that phone comes in 64 GB configurations as well. Even so, the Moto X is a perfect middle ground of Android phones and really gives an overall solid Android experience while doing it rather affordably.
