The Google Pixel and Motorola Moto Z are both 2016 launches. Coming from known brands, here is a quick comparison of the two smartphones to see their differences.

When it comes to overall physical design, the Motorola Moto Z is taller, wider, and denser than the Google Pixel model, with an overall sleeker look.

From the display perspective, the Moto Z has a larger display, better screen resolution, and higher pixel per inch compared to the Pixel, according to NDTV Gadgets.

Looking under the hood, the Google Pixel is powered by 2.5 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 whereas Motorola Moto Z is powered by 1.8 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 as per Smart Prix. With better CPU speed and smoother experience, the Google Pixel seems to be the winner here.

The Motorola Moto Z has twice the internal storage capacity than that of the Google Pixel because of its expandable storage option.

When it comes to cameras, the Google Pixel comes with 12.3 MP rear camera and 8 MP front camera. Motorola Moto Z has 13 MP rear camera and 5 MP front camera. However, front flash is only available for Moto Z model.

The Pixel packs a decent battery capacity, slightly higher than that of Moto Z model. However, unlike the Motorola phone, the Google handset has non-removable battery. The 3.5 mm headphone jack is only present in the Pixel.

Between the two, the Moto Z is the only smartphone which support Dual-SIM and FM Radio. The Google phone, on the other hand, supports DLNA standard, allowing easy sharing of video, pictures or audio with other DLNA supported devices with the help of WiFi.

It looks like both the Google Pixel and the Motorola Moto Z have strong features. It would be more of a personal preference to decide which is the winner.
