Motorola which had created ripples in the Indian market with the release of its budget smartphones like Moto G and Moto E is now under tough competition due to the release of Xiaomi MI 3 which is far superior in terms of specifications to Moto G but having almost similar pricing.
And looking at the amount of response Xiaomi got after its release, Motorola is now upping the competition by decreasing the pricing of its Moto G by almost 2000 rupees. This will bring the phone price down considerably making it in reach to many users.
Moto G has a 4.5 inch display having 1280 x 720p display resolution and runs on Snapdragon 400 processor and Adreno 305 which is supported by 1 GB of RAM. It has a 5MP rear camera and a 1.3 MP front facing camera. The device runs on 2070 mAh battery which cannot be removed.
The Moto G comes in two variants 8GB and 16GB and are priced accordingly. Many people are more inclined towards Moto G because of the reliability and the number of service centres available compared to the new Xiaomi and the chinese name on it. But as Motorola is owned by Lenovo which is in turn a Chinese brand itself makes in confusing for many.
Moto G and Mi 3 are in the same price range which brings the comparison between these two devices but in my honest opinion the comparison between Mi 3 and Moto X or Nexus 5 is more apt looking at the similarities in specifications territory in which the three devices lie in. Moto G can be compared to the Asus Zenfone which has similar specifications but priced much much lower.
Pricing of the Moto G 8 GB model is Rs. 10,499/- and the 16 GB model is Rs. 11,999/-
Moto G with its sturdy build and the brand name behind it is preferred by many and people know about motorola compared to the other brands which are bringing out phones at dead cheap prices. So lets see in the coming future how these devices fare and the sales will tell it all.
