Overview
The Moto X is Motorola’s first delivery after being taken over by Google. Although ultimately Motorola is now owned by Lenovo, the Moto X certainly made a mark with the tech critics for its unique features, unlike the mark Moto G made due to its aggressive price. Instead of stuffing the phone with countless features and boasting of high-end specs, the Moto X rather baked in some truly unique and useful tricks. First up is Touchless controls, that work thanks to a co-processor and a third microphone, that is always listening to the “OK Google Now” command. The moment the user says it, the phone prompts up (even when it’s on standby). All your requests are then handed down to Google Now, which can do a bunch of things; from finding information, to opening apps, to start navigation, to setting reminders etc.

Next in line is Active Notifications, that show you the content of your notifications directly on the lockscreen. These always-on notifications are possible because of the phone’s Super AMOLED display. Speaking of the display, Motorola has packed in a 4.7-inch 1280 x 720 pixel display in a fairly compact form factor; a pleasant change from the ginormous phones you usually see these days. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.7GHz dual-core chip, paired with 2GB of RAM and an Adreno 320 graphics chip (faster than the usual Adreno 305 chip that’s paired with this S4 Pro chip). This combination results in a smooth performance that won’t make you regret buying a phone with “just” a dual-core CPU. It comes with 16GB of internal memory, with no microSD card slot to expand further.

The 10 megapixel camera at the back takes above average snaps. There's an easy twisting gesture to get the camera running even when the phone's in standby. There’s a 2MP front-facing sensor for video calls. Despite all those features, the 2200mAh battery on the Moto X manages to deliver an up-time of a typical Android phone.
The XPERIA SP is a pretty interesting mid-range phone. It’s got a good 1.7 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chip, 1GB RAM and the Adreno 320 GPU — thereby ensuring that it is ready for heavy lifting. The internal 8GB memory leaves a reasonable 5.8GB free for the user, other than the microSD slot for storing media of course. The 4.6-inch 720p HD display is complemented with an transparent edge below it. When viewing photos, this edge emits colours that are in tune with the image on the screen; somewhat similar to the Ambilight technology Philips used in TVs. The 8MP camera at the back records 1080p Full HD videos at a smooth 30 fps. The 2370 mAh battery claims to deliver decent battery life given the power-hungry internals. Lastly, the phone is built quite well; holding it gives you that awesome feeling of solidity, which unfortunately, is not common these days.
