Xiaomi Mi 3 is also among one of their produced master pieces. On the other hand Moto X is a well known beast beating ruthlessly everyone in its class. Here we will compare these two products from totally different origins and see variety of similarities and difference which will ultimately let us know who has got that spark.

Moto X however houses a 4.7inch AMOLED display with screen resolution of 720*1280pixels and pixel density of 312ppi, also a Gorilla Glass 3 is added for protection. The Chinese Smartphone maker has produced really high quality display in this beast with unbeatable pixel density. No matter Moto X has used AMOLED technology but both display size as well as its resolution goes in favour of Xiaomi Mi 3. In clear words Xiaomi has got the spark to give distinctive feel of vision. Somehow we feel that such a gleaming display should have got a coat of protection over it which is unfortunately missing.
