Software and UI: For the Desire 828, HTC has employed its Sense UI on top of Android 5.1 Lollipop OS. The Sense UI brings a host of features such as HTC Music, Video Player, HTC Camera apart from stock Google apps. It also includes the BlinkFeed interface which brings news feed from your social networks right on the homescreen.

The Moto X Play, on the other hand comes with stock Android 5.1 Lollipop and an Android 6.0 Marshmallow update is already rolling out for the handset. Motorola has tried to keep the interface close to Google’s stock UI, which also makes it easier for the company to quickly rollout latest software updates.

The Vibe X3, on the other hand, comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, wrapped under Lenovo’s Vibe UI. The interface is very minimal; there aren’t many bloatware apps, and the customizations that go under the hood include themes, Dolby Atmos audio enhancement, Hi-Fi stereo, split screen view for ANT VR headset and more.

Specifications and features: On the hardware front, all three smartphones flaunt a 5.5-inch full HD (1080p) display and covered with Corning Gorilla Glass protection to keep scratches at bay. The Vibe X3 runs on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 808 64-bit hexa-core SoC paired with 3GB of RAM. The Desire 828 runs on MediaTek’s MT6753 64-bit octa-core chipset clocked at 1.5GHz and paired with 2GB of RAM, whereas the Moto X Play is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz and paired with 2GB of RAM.

In terms of internal storage, Desire 828 comes with 16GB onboard storage, whereas the Moto X Play and Vibe X3 comes with 32GB of storage. All three smartphones also feature a microSD card to further expand it up to 128GB (Desire 828 supports cards up to 2TB).

In terms of camera, the Vibe X3 and Moto X Play sport a 21-megapixel rear camera with LED flash, whereas the Desire 828 sports a 13-megapixel camera with OIS (optical image stabilization) and LED flash. The Vibe X3 also supports 4K video recording and slow motion video recording. Up front, the Desire 828 is equipped with a 4-UltraPixel selfie unit, whereas the Moto X Play and Vibe X3 sports a 5-megapixel and 8-megapixel front-facing cameras respectively.

On the connectivity front, all smartphones support 4G LTE, dual-SIM card slots, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi 802.11n and GPS. In terms of battery, the Desire 828 is equipped with a 2,800mAh non-removable battery, whereas the Vibe X3 and Moto X Play are equipped with 3,500mAh and 3,630mAh, respectively (Qualcomm’s QuickCharge 2.0 is also supported).

On paper, the Lenovo Vibe X3 seems to be a better smartphone, even if we compare them just on the basis of their specifications. The Vibe X3 also comes with a fingerprint scanner at the back.  Add to it the additional audio hardware like the three Texas Instruments OPA1612 amplifiers and a high-end Sabre 9018C2M DAC chip, we believe it would have a clear advantage over the other two. However, we will reserve our verdict till we review the smartphone.
