Samsung Galaxy Grand 2, with a bigger screen size of 5.25-inch, has 720p resolution as well and pixel density of 280ppi.
Google’s Nexus 4 smartphone has a 4.7-inch panel, with 1280x768p resolution and pixel density of 318ppi.
Moto X features a 4.7-inch 720p display, offering pixel density of 312ppi.
Both Sony Xperia T2 Ultra and Nokia Lumia 1320 have 6-inch screens and 720p resolution, resulting in pixel density of 245ppi.
Chinese manufacturer Gionee’s Elife E7 trumps all the above-mentioned smartphones with a Full HD (1920x1020p) display, offering pixel density of 401ppi on a 5.5-inch screen.
The display quality of Elife E7 has the best among the lot so far.
Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 and Sony Xperia T2 Ultra are powered by Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean), with custom skins on top.
Moto X and Nexus 4 are the only smartphones in our list to run on Android 4.4 (KitKat), the latest version of Google’s mobile OS
Gionee Elife E7, on the other hand, is stuck at Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) and features its own customized software on top.
Nokia Lumia 1320 is the only handset in this comparison that runs on an operating system other than Android; it runs on Windows Phone 8, with the latest Black update preloaded straight-out-of-the-box.
Processor & RAM
Galaxy Grand 2 (1.5GB RAM) and Xperia T2 Ultra (1GB RAM) are powered by the quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, running at 1.2GHz and 1.4GHz, respectively
Moto X runs on the 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, while Nexus 4 packs a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset; both come with 2GB RAM
Gionee Elife E7 has the most powerful handset in the list – the 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 chip. The 16 and 32GB variants of the phone come with 2 and 3GB RAM, respectively.
Lumia 1320 is powered by the 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400 chip with 1GB RAM. Nexus 4 feels the fastest in real-world usage, as the Gionee phone is somewhat bogged down by the heavy skin and transition effects.
Considering Moto X runs the same software as Nexus 4
Moto X uses a 10MP camera with LED flash on the back, featuring proprietary ClearPixel technology that is said to allow 75% more light to enter and help produce better low-light images. We will be in a better position to comment on the quality once we review the phone.
Again, Gionee Elife E7 offers the maximum megapixel count at this price with its 16MP rear camera, but Sony Xperia T2 Ultra stands a close second with a 13MP rear camera.
Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 has an 8MP camera with LED flash, whereas Nokia Lumia 1320 stands last when it comes to megapixel count with a poor 5MP camera.
In performance, Gionee’s camera delivers the best results, offering high level of detail, accurate colour reproduction, little or no noise and good contrast.
Both Moto X and Nexus 4 offer 16GB of inbuilt storage, with no support for microSD cards.
