Google Inc (GOOG) Moto X: Apple Inc. (AAPL) iPhone Competition or No?

The hype surrounding the Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Moto X is growing. After all, fans of the company, as well as a growing number of consumers, have been waiting for the search engine giant to do something like this. In fact, they have been waiting for more than a year, ever since Motorola became part of Google in 2012.

Google Inc (GOOG) Moto X, Apple Inc. (AAPL) iPhone Competition or not?While it has yet to be seen how this smartphone is going to perform, Larry Page and Sundar Pichai definitely have big things in mind. If the device is able to perform at a high level, the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone could suffer as a direct result.

But here is the real question: is the Moto X for real, or is this just another “smartphone pretender” that doesn’t have much to offer?

Show us Something, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)

Display Search recently took a closer look at the Moto X, paying close attention to the criticism it has received thus far as well as what the smartphone brings to the table in terms of benefits.

Without even taking the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone into consideration, the piece concludes that the phone is a “premium product with less than perfect hardware.”

What are the reasons for this? To start, the phone dis not using Android 4.3. Along with this, its pixel density is not nearly as advanced as what Samsung and HTC bring to the table.

With all this in mind, why would somebody purchase a Moto X when they could turn to another vendor, such as Samsung, and getting a better product that is running the latest version of Android? This doesn’t make much sense.

On the plus side, there are features that will allow the Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) to perform well against other Android phones as well as the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPhone. For example, “OK Google now,” along with “Active Display,” are two impressive features.

Tina Teng did a great job taking a closer look at the Moto X, comparing it to some of the other smartphones on the market, helping us better understand what the device has to offer.

Do you feel this is a winner for Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)? Do you think Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) CEO Tim Cook is worried?

One thing is for sure. These hedge fund managers continue to like what they see from the search engine giant: Robert Karr, Daniel Benton, Sandy Nairn, and Gregory Bylinsky.
