Which Motorola Smartphone is Right for You?

by May 18, 2016 0 comments

In the past few months, Motorola rolled out various Moto devices in the market between 10 to 17K price range. These devices have the basic Moto design with some tweaks and upgrades in hardware. But, which smartphone is the real value for money – Moto G3, Moto e (2nd Gen), Moto G Turbo, Moto G (2nd gen), Moto G4 Plus or Moto X Play?

We are evaluating these three smartphones as per their specs and in the first glance, though the G (2nd gen) and G4 Plus, has only 500 Rs difference but huge differences in the hardware combination. On the other hand, X Play and G4 Plus has similarities in specs apart from water repellent nano-coating (IP52 certified), 21 MP rear camera, and 3630 mAh battery in X Play, while 16 MP and 3000 mAh battery in G4 Plus. However, the price difference is about 4K.

On the basis of specs, out of G3, e (2nd Gen), G Turbo, G (2nd gen), G4 Plus, and X Play, we can say X Play is the best one but you have to pay the highest price as well. But the best value for money device is Moto G4 Plus.

Now, let us know, which one is your choice.
