HTC One E8 vs Oppo Find 7A vs Motorola Moto X vs Nexus 5 – Best Of The Best?

Smartphones are coming off the production line very fast and you don’t even get a chance to get accommodated with a device before a new one swoops in. In anticipation of some of the devices that will come out soon, we are comparing some handset that stood out over the past year. They come from high-end brands and feature not only good specs, but also a noticeable design.

HTC One E8 vs Oppo Find 7A vs Motorola Moto X vs Nexus 5

Design and Display

The HTC One E8 comes with a Super LCD3 screen. The pixel resolution for this display is of 445 ppi. The Nexus 5 also comes with a 445 ppi resolution packed in a True HD IPS+ display, while the 5.2 inch display of the Moto X uses a 441 ppi AMOLED screen. The Oppo Find 7 has an even larger display that features 5.5 inches and uses the IPS LCD technology.The pixel density here is 441 ppi.

The Nexus 5 and the Oppo Find 7 stand at the extremities in terms of width and weight. The Google handset is the lightest and narrowest with 69.2 mm and 130 grams while the Oppo device isn’t as narrow with its 75 mm. The handset weighs 170 grams.

On the Nexus 5 we also liked the 4.95 inch screen with IPS panel + Full HD resolution. It is clear, due to the high density of pixels, provides good contrast and wide viewing angles. It has Gorilla Glass 3 therefore should be resistant to scratches. Brightness and colors are OK, but they could be better,

Hardware and Software

In terms of processing power, all four devices come with the Krait 400 CPU and the Adreno 330 graphics processing unit, says GSM Arena. The RAM capacity is also the same, 2 GB, as differences only start to appear when reaching the chipset section. While the Nexus 5 comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, the Moto X and the HTC One E8 feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801. The Find 7 also has a Snapdragon 801, but a different model than the other two.

Memory-wise, the Nexus 5 and Moto X come with 16 and 32 GB storage options, while the other two feature only 16 GB of  storage but also have support for microSD, meaning a maximum of 128 GB.

Aside from the Find 7 which uses Android Jelly Bean, all devices use Android KitKat, which is the latest variant of Android until Android Lollipop is released.

Motorola managed to make this one of the top processor through optimization. It's one that Motorola owners have seen on Razr HD, Razr Maxx HD and Razr M and other users on HTC One X, BlackBerry Z10 or Nokia Lumia 928. Though is quite an old processor, the performance difference isn't felt. Can be played the same games as with the Snapdragon 800 processor, or try to push through multitasking, it quickly switches between programs, closures, openings. Motorola resisted. Browsing is very fast, and the games and apps open quite quickly.


A 13 MP on the rear and 5 MP in the front camera combo is used for the HTC and Oppo, while the Motorola devices has only 2 MP in the front. The Nexus 5 comes with 8 MP in on the rear and 1.3 MP in the front.


In terms of battery capacity, the Oppo Find 7 leads the way with the strongest battery which features 2800 mAh. The HTC is right behind it with 2600 mAh, while the Nexus and Motorola have 2300 mAh.

On, the devices can be found at these prices:

Oppo Find 7 - $629

HTC One E8-$540

Nexus 5- $350

Moto X -$400

    Well nexus may be left behind in specs but it is inevitable because a single nexus(phone) is announced in a year.But i must say that using nexus is a different and better experience than the other brands no matter if they are also using stock android at the most.Updates are fast and You feel in safer side being supported by google at your back
