Should you get a Moto X or an
I'll be back in due time with a full review comparing the Moto X and HTC One at a later date, but one thing struck me about the two phones: they have the same screen size but the Moto X is noticeably smaller. Motorola made a big deal about building a phone that is compact but still has a large display. The efforts were proven successful when looking at the Moto X next to an HTC One. Both phones have 4.7-inch screens despite what your eyes may think when the phones are side-by-side. The HTC One's dimensions are 137.4x 68.2mm (5.41 x 2.69 x 0.37in) and The Moto X is 129.3 x 65.3mm (5.09 x 2.57in). That doesn't seem like much on paper, but it's definitely noticeable. The X manages to deliver the big display without becoming a big phone. The differences become less noticeable in its favor when discussing dimension. At its thickest point, the Moto X is 10.4mm (0.41), and 5.6mm (0.22in) at it's thinnest. The HTC One has a more elegant curve that is 9.3mm (0.37in).
