Spec Showdown: Moto X Versus Galaxy S4, LG Optimus G Pro, Nokia Lumia 1020, and HTC One

Shopping a high-end handset, are you? Well fancy that, we just happen to have something you may want to look at! Wading through the pertinent specs of several different smartphones is, quite frankly, a little overwhelming, especially when you're starting at a 2-year commitment with the one you ultimately choose. To help you make an educated decision, we've put together a chart of some of the more popular smartphones as of late so you can quickly and easily compare the specs of each one.

Not only did we put together a list of specs, but when possible, we also linked to our own review/analysis of each device, the sole exception being Motorola's new Moto X handset (we'll have a review in due time). So, without further adieu, here they are:

Samsung Galaxy S4

You'll notice there are some potential deal killers listed above. For example, if you're a Verizon customer and want to stick with Big Red, then the LG Optimus Pro, HTC One, and Nokia Lumia 1020 are all off the table; two of those are exclusive to AT&T. Likewise, only two handsets -- Samsung Galaxy S4 and LG Optimus Pro -- offer expandable storage by way of a microSD card slot.
