Reviews Word on the street

Moto X  vs Optimus G Pro 

The display is decently bright, though AMOLED displays aren't the best for combating bright sunlight (the HTC One wins that contest) and auto-brightness is ever so slightly dim, though not so much as the Samsung Galaxy S4.
Moto X

Certainly, we’re pleased with the results out of its 1080p video recording quality, which sees solid details, minimal artifacting elements when panning, clear audio recording, and good color reproductions.
