Nexus 6P vs. Moto X Pure!


Today, we will look at the specs and price of Nexus 6P versus the Moto X Pure!

First, both Nexus 6P and Moto X Pure have 1440P 2560×1440 resolution screens. The Nexus 6P will use AMOLED technology similar to the Note 5 while the Moto X Pure has an IPS TFT LCD screen. In terms of viewing angles, the AMOLED screens are much better and have brighter screens. Also, AMOLED screens are much more energy efficient so the Nexus 6P should have a much better screen. In real life usage, it’s probably not a huge deal but Nexus 6P wins in display category.

The Nexus 6P will feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 v2.1 processor while the Moto X Pure features Snapdragon 808. Performance benchmarks for both 810 and 808 are nearly identical. We will call this a draw for now since neither processor is much better the other. 

For design, Nexus 6P will feature all metal unibody while the Moto X Pure features a metal frame and customizable back. The Nexus 6P will feature Google’s first attempt at metal body while Moto X Pure has a great form factor on its own right with many levels of colors and back material. I would probably call this a draw on design for now.

Nexus 6P features world’s first fingerprint sensor located on the back of the phone, which is pretty ridiculously awesome while Moto X Pure simply doesn’t have one. We will give this one to the Nexus 6P since its fingerprint sensor may be the best in the world. And of course, for people who don’t think fingerprint sensor is absolute necessary like myself, this feature may or may not be as useful. But it is really cool that the Nexus 6P features a fingerprint that can easily be activated by the tip of your index finger.
