Aaron compares the similarities and differences between the Moto X and Moto G, the company's newest smartphones.  Available via four carriers in Moto Maker, the Moto X offers 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 internal storage, 2,200 mAh battery, 4G LTE, and Android 4.4 KitKat.  The Moto G is available starting at $179 unlocked and sports a 1.2 GHz quad-core CPU, 4.5-inch 720p HD display, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage (16 GB for $199), 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD recording, 2,070mAh battery, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. 

The Moto X is certainly the high-end smartphone between the two with more RAM, a larger battery, and 4G LTE connectivity - but the fantastic price point and the customization that comes with it makes the Moto G a looker.
