While it would probably make more sense to compare the Moto G to the Moto X, we cannot help but compare it to the Nexus 5. In part that may be due to our recent Nexus 5 usage (we reviewed the N5 and have been carrying it daily since), but we are also making the comparison given they are both available unlocked and with attractive price points. The thing is, the Nexus 5 is the top-tier and the Moto G is the mid-tier. That thought follows the patterns we see with the specs as well as the price. Anyway, talk of the Nexus 5 aside, how about we get into the Moto G, beginning with the hardware.
