On the other hand, Sony Xperia Z1 is the heaviest in terms of weight (170g) while S4 and Moto X are of the same weight (130g).

Display Clarity
Sony Xperia Z1 has the best clarity of all three. First its 1080p with advanced Triluminous and X-reality display technology. Samsung Galaxy S4 is also 1080p display quality but the technology used is PenTile which makes mahes look fuzzy at times. Moto X is 720p display quality and not so great.

Processor
Sony Xperia Z1 is the king in this department. It has a quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 with each core running 2.2GHz . Galaxy S4 is quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 chip and running 1.9GHz. Moto X is dual core X8 Snapdragon S4 pro chip running 1.7GHz. Consequently, Sony Xperia Z1 beats the remaining two hands down.

All the three smartphones have 2GB RAM so there is a tie here. However, because of the the fster processing power of both Galaxy S4 and Xperia Z1, Moto may perform a little slower when put under the same conditions.
