Two of the most popular Android smartphones last year were the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Motorola Moto X. These have been succeeded this year by the Galaxy S5 that released in spring, and the new Moto X (2014) that has only just arrived for sale. Today we’re considering the Galaxy S5 vs. Moto X 2nd Gen.
