Time for another head to head battle - this time, 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.  The Moto X offers a 1.7 GHz dual-core processor with Motorola's X8 architecture, 4.7-inch 720p HD display, 10-megapixel shooter 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 Motorola goodies.  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 always brings out the arguments, 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 in both the hardware and software.  Which one offers the best hardware and software?  Part 2 of 2.
