"I guess Apple values the 2.5mm of depth and 45 grams of weight less than the Moto over the battery life."

Anecdotally - Linus (from Linus Tech Tips) was talking to a Corning rep when Gorilla Glass 6 was released who reckoned that if they'd kept everything else equal teh screens would be nigh indestructible. Unfortunately every time they improved the strength of the stuff Apple would shave it thinner, compromising it's strength, to fit with the Apple aesthetic.
