The low-to-mid range segment in the market is the most exciting of all the other segments in the market. The reason of course for that is the inflow of the number of smartphones that have recently flooded the market to compete with each other.
Frankly speaking, if you are indeed looking for a device in that low-to-mid range price segment, you will surprised as well as confused at the same time to know that you will be spoilt for choices since there are so many to choose from.
Keeping the segment in mind, two new devices that are creating most of the noise in the market in recent times are the Motorola-made Moto E and the other Nokia X handset. Both the devices are expected to take the market by storm in the coming days.
Motorola currently has a lot going for them with the company following up on the recent Moto G and Moto X releases, wit the introduction of Moto E. The Moto G has already went on to become a major thing among fans, and Motorola is targeting the same with the E.
The Nokia X, on the other hand, has also been tagged for greater accomplishments this year, mainly because it's the first-ever Nokia phone that has arrived running the Android OS. And although it's just a stock offering (not the Google official one), it still has seen a lot of popularity from fans.
So what happens when we take both the devices and put them against each other in a race? Who do you think has a better chance of overcoming the other? Let's take a closer look at a comparison between the Nokia X and Moto E.
Motorola Moto E Vs Nokia X: Operating System
We are talking stock Android here, and that's what the Nokia X is offering at the moment. However, it's still Android, and it's still making a lot of noise. However, for the Moto E, you won't have that much to think about since it's anyway offering the official Android. And that too the latest KitKat with more updates on the way.
Motorola Moto E Vs Nokia X: Display and Dimensions
The Motorola Moto E sports a 4.3-inch capacitive touch screen, while rendering 540 x 960 pixels resolution. Also, the device's overall dimensions measure up to 124.8 x 64.8 x 12.3 mm. The device weighs in at 142 grams.
The Nokia X, on the other hand, sports a 4.0-inch IPS LCD capacitive touch screen, while rendering 480 x 800 pixels resolution. The device's overall dimensions measure up to 115.5 x 63 x 10.4 mm. But compared to the Moto E, this one weighs less at 128.7 grams.
Motorola Moto E Vs Nokia X: Camera
The Motorola Moto E, in the camera department, offers a 5-megapixel primary camera, sporting a pixel resolution of 2592 х 1944 pixels, with touch focus. The device, however, doesn't come with a front-facing snapper and that's quite a blow considering how popular selfies are.
The Nokia X, on the other hand, sports a lesser 3.15-megapixel primary camera, sporting a pixel resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels. The device, similar to the E, also doesn't offer a front-facing secondary shooter.
Motorola Moto E Vs Nokia X: Processors
Decent engines, as expected, have been fitted into both the devices in order to carry out operations smoothly. While the Motorola Moto E is equipped with a dual core 1.2 GHz Cortex A7 processor, the Nokia X comes equipped with a slightly lesser 1GHz dual core cortex-A5 processor and Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Play chipset.
Motorola Moto E Vs Nokia X: Storage and RAM
The Motorola Moto E offers 1GB of RAM to users while offering the device in a 4GB internal memory variant. Moreover, there's the option to expand the device's memory up to 32GB as an external microSD slot for additional memory is also present.
The Nokia X smartphone, however, offers a lesser 512MB of RAM while offering the device in 4 GB internal memory variant. Again, there's the option to expand the device's memory up to 32GB as an external microSD slot for additional memory is present.
Motorola Moto E Vs Nokia X: Battery
While the Moto E juices up the KitKat-powered device via a decent 1980 mAh battery, the Nokia X comes fitted with a lesser 1500 mAh battery.
Motorola Moto E Vs Nokia X: Verdict
At more or less equal price tags, it should normally be difficult to make a distinction between two devices. However, that may not be deal when the Nokia X and the Moto E are placed side by side in the race.
Although the prices look the same (somewhat), the real deal is to go through the specifications of both the devices and then take a decision as to which fits the bill better. However, if we are still needed to pick a winner out of them, we would have to say that the Moto E clearly stands the better chance of going to the top.
As for the Nokia X, this time however, the tag of "the first ever Nokia Android phone" may not work out, with the Moto E already biting at its heels with better specs.
