Although at face value this sounds impossible, in some areas the Moto E actually bests the Samsung Galaxy S5 in performance. As you will see in the above video, the Galaxy S5 and the Moto E went head to head with a real-world UI performance test, and the Moto E actually comes out on top. This isn't some fancy benchmark software with gobs of long numbers. Instead, the video crafter simply demonstrates the two phones side by side performing average tasks. The results become obvious even as they shock us. To be fair, it is rather obvious in the long run why this might occur. The Moto E is very close to stock Android and has been masterfully optimized by the engineering geniuses at Motorola. On the other hand, the Galaxy S5 has TouchWiz running on top of the Android OS. When you think about it in those terms, you would almost expect the performance delta to favor the Moto E. Despite the logic of this assessment, the results are still surprising to watch.
