It's a dogfight battle between the Motorola Moto X and the Apple iPhone 5!  The Moto X is one of the first Motorola smartphones designed under the watch of Google.  Specifications include a 1.7 GHz dual-core CPU with Motorola's X8 architecture, 4.7-inch 720p HD display, 10-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage (with 32 GB available), 2,200 mAh battery, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean with some minor Motorola customizations.  The Apple iPhone 5 packs an Apple A6 CPU, 4-inch Retina Display, 8-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 32 GB of internal storage (with 16 and 64 GB variants available), and iOS 7 (which is coming soon).

Apple versus Android is always a hot battle, but this one is particularly unique in that the Moto X is often called "the iPhone of the Android world" due to the universal Google hand throughout.  Which one is the best?  Part 1 of 2.
