Moto X Pure Edition vs. Galaxy S6 — A tough battle indeed

The Moto X Pure Edition, known as the Moto X Style outside of the United States, was introduced on Tuesday. It’s a real first class device that starts at just $399 without any sort of contract, and with support for Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and T-Mobile networks in the United States out of the box. That’s really darn compelling. But how does it stack up against the Galaxy S6 which is, arguably, one of the best Android smartphones on the market?

We can’t answer that question until we run a full review when the phone launches, but we can show you how the specs compare side-by-side. You’ll get a Quad HD display with the Moto X Pure Edition, one that measures 5.7-inches to the Galaxy S6’s 5.1-inch Quad HD display, which has been dubbed the best on the market. Some consumers will appreciate the larger screen, while others won’t. And the Moto X Pure Edition provides niceties like front-facing speakers, customization, a microSD card slot and a pure software experience while the Galaxy S6 offers a premium glass and metal design.

We’re not here to name a winner, rather to show you how the two phones compare spec-by-spec to make it easier for you to make your own decision. See how the two phones stack up below.
