The world is waiting for the LG G5 to appear sometime in spring this year. A lot of expectation is riding on the upcoming device which claims modular design. Another remarkable device is the Motorola’s Moto X Style (aka Pure Edition), which could be a strong competitor against the LG G5. Here, we throw light on five key features of both phones and how they fare against each other.
The LG G5 boasts modular design with several clip-ons that add more functions to the phone. Its metal chassis, slightly curved screen and rear-mounted volume keys act as a departure from the usual designs of the LG G4 and G3. If LG claims to be different, Moto X Style is premium in different ways. Molded in wood, leather or rubberized black plate, the device features an aluminum frame. The rear camera module, volume keys and power buttons are accentuated with metal. Indeed, it has a highly refined look.
LG G5 has a 5.3-inches screen, smaller to 5.5-inches screen size of its predecessors, G4 and G3. The display is an IPS Quantum screen with 2,560×1,440 resolution with 554ppi. On the other hand, the Moto X Style has a bigger screen measuring 5.7-inches IPS LCD display with 2,560×1,440 resolution at 520ppi.
LG G5 wins over the Moto X Style in this area. The LG handset is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB of RAM, while the Moto X Style has an older processor, which is Snapdragon 808 and is fuelled by 3GB of RAM.
Here is another point which puts the LG G5 in the number one slot. The handset comes with a fingerprint scanner that has twin functions since it also works like a power button. However, the Moto X Style does not carry a fingerprint scanner.
The LG G5 has a removable 2,800mAH battery, while the Moto X Style has a non-removable 3,000mAH battery, reports AndroidAuthority. Both phones are not the best choices, but they don’t cease to impress you either.
