I pulled out this comment I made on +Rado Medz post below about side-by-side comparisons of the new X vs the rest of the industry, based on everyone's kind feedback:
 
With the Moto X, Motorola has changed the paradigm of the mobile phone from raw specs to user experience.  It's about software, not just hardware.  The rest of the industry has not figured out how to catch up with this paradigm shift yet.  Thus, I feel it's really kind of impossible to compare other phones to what any of the Moto X units have to offer, yet.  It's kind of like comparing apples (pun intended) and airplanes.  +Punit Soni  made the comment on a new Moto X comparison review yesterday - the rest of the industry doesn't know how to quantify their phones against the software that Motorola is developing for the Moto X yet - they can't - they are relying on Android and applying bloatware, not developing software that changes how mobile phones are actually used.

Your Classic Moto X can still do things that Apple, Samsung, HTC, Sony, and the others still can't do in their next gen phones.  If you compare them all up against the new X, they may look better in a line-by-line spec sheet (like PhoneArena), but they still don't provide the user experience of even our year old units.  Thus, the kind of comparison you asked for is really kind of irrelevant.
