As for storage, both the Nexus 5 and the Moto X are without a microSD card slot, while the other two have that advantage.
The Find 7a, One (E8), and the Moto X have 13-megapixel cameras at the back. But where the former have 5-megapixel selfie cameras at the front, the Moto X has a relatively smaller 2-megapixel selfie camera. The Nexus 5, on the other hand, lags behind with a 8-megapixel rear and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera.
Oppo Find 7a has the best battery packing a 2,800mAh unit. Moto X and Google Nexus 5 both have 2,300mAh battery and the HTC One E8 has a 2,600mAh battery.
Moto X and Google Nexus 5 both have the latest Android 4.4.4 KitKat, and also run on stock Android. The One (E8) too runs on KitKat, but is wrapped under HTC’s Sense UI, while the Find 7a is the only one still running on Jelly Bean.
In this group, only the new Moto X comes with nano coating on the inside as well as the outside that can protect against an accidental splash of water. This feature is missing on the other phones.
