These comparisons really don't do a lot w/o going into detail or using all of them side-by-side to compare. HTC camera, S4's archaic button design, TouchWiz vs Sense vs stock... all make this table far less useful.
I disagree. Tables like these are great for quickly weeding out potential candidates due to various deal killers. For someone that doesn't follow the fast-moving smartphone world closely, it's helpful to know, at a glance, which phones are available on which carrier, which ones have a microSD card slot, and other potential deal killers.
For example, if I'm in the market for a Verizon phone, or a handset that's at least 5 inches, I can narrow down my list of candidates at a single glance. This is meant to be a starting point, not an in-depth roundup.
Lots of information packed into one place.
I just bought an HTC One, but it's last year's model. I like it though, and it's camera is pretty nice.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Its kind of pointless to do these kinds of tables when there is such a difference in how some of the devices manage the OS/apps. The lumia for instance would seem to be way way way slower than the quad core devices but the way its OS operates actually makes it one of the fastest devices. Likewize with the screen resolutions. You simply cannot tell the difrerence between 720 and 1080 at 12" away on a 4"-5" display, its just a meaningless spec-battle that only serves to decrease battery life in the higher resolution screens. Also, no iPhoney in there...
The only real details that help people weed out particular phones is the carrier section.
These phones all perform remarkably closely despite CPU differences, and other than avoiding the really old android versions in the Optimus G and HTC One, its really just the availability that matters, unless you want an amazing camera (Lumia 1020) or expandable storage (Sammy S4) or to look like a hipster douche and get an iPhone.
So is the MotoX a midrange smartphone masquerading as a high-end one with its price?
The moto X is just too expensive for the specs. WP8 on the Nokia doesn't need more than a dual-core not even sure if it's meant to run on quad-core yet but comparing CPU and cameras alone I would never consider one. Also most of us are used to seeing larger batteries from Motorola which isn't the case with the X. I will wait for the Moto XS before I'm impressed.
