After Lenovo’s massive acquisition, Motorola has made some compelling smartphones in the low-to-high-end category. The company, since its comeback with the first-ever Moto G, has positioned some exquisite phones in different categories. From a value-conscious choice Moto E to a high-end Moto Z with top bells and whistles, Moto mobiles have got everything covered for us. They promise value of a trusted brand alongside mind-boggling specifications.
And here’s where we bring all of Lenovo and Moto under roof- the phones that bring best value for money. Here are top phones from the company that not just fit inside your budget but also make a great package for an exemplary smartphone experience.
- Moto G4 Plus
If performance is all what you need Moto G4 Plus is the best buy in the budget segment. The device flaunts a decent profile, ships at a tempting price bracket, and handles heavy usage without any glitches. It makes a major upgrade over the previous Moto G and is equipped with top-of-the line specs and a superb 16-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
The 5.5-inch full-HD display of Moto G4 Plus gives a vivid visual experience and powers up by an octa-core Snapdragon 617. It gives a lifelike gaming experience and is neatly backed by a long-lasting 3000 mAh non-removable battery.
Lenovo offer Moto G4 in two variants, one with 2GB RAM and 16GB on-board storage and other with 3-gigabyte RAM and 32GB on-board storage. Both variants deliver enhanced performance and incorporate a fingerprint scanner, but lack of NFC and Moto Maker options is something that brings down the bar! They’re available at Rs. 13,499 and Rs. 14,999 via Amazon India.
- Moto G4
Moto G4 is the simple version of G4 Plus. The device rules out a fingerprint scanner here and boasts a decent set of specs Snapdragon 617, 2GB RAM, and 16GB internal storage. The look and feel of this handset fairly identical to the top-end Moto G4 Plus, but on the spec-sheet they’re quite different. Moto G4 also incorporates a 5.5-inch full-HD display and a 3000 mAh battery, but its rear camera offering is not as impressive as on the likes of other players. The back camera of Moto G4 features a 13-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture, standard autofocus and dual-LED flash. It still manages vibrant output in different environments, but why go for less when you can get better at the same price tag!
Moto G4 is also exclusively available via Amazon India. The device has been priced at Rs. 12,499 and is hitting the shelves successfully.
- Moto G Turbo Edition
If you’re not impressed with the likes of Moto G4 and G4 Plus, we have Moto G Turbo Edition to keep you interested. The old but sassy Moto G from Lenovo makes an incredible package with good looks, enhanced durability, and strong internals. It packs a beautiful body with curved textured back and sports a 5-inch HD IPS display protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Motorola gives Android Lollipop out-of-the box with this handset, but you’re in for an assured upgrade to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
Moto G Turbo delivers enhanced performance with Qualcomm’s mid-ranged Snapdragon 615, 2GB RAM, and 16GB internal storage. The device handles multi-tasking and heavy usage quite easily and bundles with a super-impressive fast-charging Turbo Charger.
As for camera performance, Moto G Turbo stands out with its 13-megapixel f/2.0 rear and 5-megapixel front-facing snapper. It performs nicely in low-light conditions and is evenly backed by a decent 2,470 mAh battery.
Moto G Turbo also includes waterproofing capabilities. It’s a performer in all ways and is available via Amazon, Flipkart, Snapdeal, and other ecommerce portals.
- Moto X Play
Among the highly competitive Moto G’s, there’s also a low-end Moto X on offer. The famous Moto X Play not only brings a strong set spec, but also makes a lucrative package at a reduced price tag!
Specifically, we can call Moto X Play a slightly lesser-spec’d avatar of Moto X Style. Motorola launched this device in August last year and since then it has created a buzz with those stunning looks and prolific performance. It’s got a slightly tweaked 5.5-inch full-HD IPS display, runs Android 5.1.1, and powers up by an octa-core Snapdragon 615 SoC with 2GB RAM.
While Android can be updated to version 6.0, you can choose Moto X Play in either 16 or 32 gigabyte flavour. Expandable storage can make things easy, but you’ll have to keep your usage in mind as some internal storage is preoccupied by the handset.
The camera setup thrown in makes a good measure for photography fanatics. It’s a 21-megapixel rear camera with PDAF, dual-tone flash, and an aperture as wide as f/2.0. Front-facing shooter packs a standard 5-megapixel sensor, but it performs at par with most phones in this price bracket.
- Moto G3
Despite losing against leading Moto mobiles, Moto G3 has delivered tremendous performance in the entry-level category. The device, priced around INR 10k, offers Snapdragon 410 quad-core SoC with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage. It might not deliver mammoth power to throttle your games, but if you’re looking for moderate usage with a bit of every app, this handset is great choice to go with. It features a 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front-facing shooter and is backed by a decent 2,470mAh battery.
On whole, we can say, this Android Marshmallow based phone is a tweaked variant of Moto G Turbo where you have SD410 instead 615, and there’s nothing like Turbo-Charging on-board.
So, here you go, these Moto mobiles can upgrade your smartphone experience without exploiting your budget limits. All these phones have made it big in the Indian smartphone market and can easily live up to your expectations without any snafus!
