The Motorola TV also has a free controller with it which will enable you to play games directly on the TV and this is something the Mi TV does not have. What is present on the Mi TV 4X 65-inch is the Patchwall OS 2.0 with an extensive catalogue of OTT services including Zee5, JioCinema, AltBalaji, ErosNow and more while the Motorola TV has support for Netflix, Prime Video, Hotstar, and Youtube only. The Mi TV 4X also has Chromecast built-in which is not present on the Motorola TV.
Processor-wise the Mi TV 4X 65-inch has a Cortex A55 64-bit CPU while the Motorola TV has a CA53 Quad-core, 1 GHz chipset. GPU-wise the Mi TV 4X has a Mali470 GPU while the Motorola TV has a lower Mali450 GPU. In terms of display, both the TVs have a UHD panel with a 60 Hz refresh rate. Both devices have something over the other but Xiaomi’s lower price should make for an interesting choice.
