Storage
The Mi 4i comes in two variants 16GB and 32GB with no space for a microSD slot. The Moto G (third generation) comes in 8GB and 16GB variants, with additional microSD slots for further 32GB memory expansion.

Battery
The Mi 4i features a slightly large battery at 3,120mAh, when compared to the new Moto G which packs a 2,470mAh battery that the company claims lasts throughout the day.

Software
Both the smartphones run on Android Lollipop. While, the Mi 4i runs on its own custom user interface MIUI 6, the Moto G (third generation) offers a more stock Android OS experience.

Others
The Moto G (third gen) comes with an IPX7 rating making it waterproof. It can survive  in 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes. The Mi 4i lacks in waterproofing capabilities.

Conclusion
The Mi 4i offers more battery, better display quality and more internal storage, though lacks a microSD slot. However, the Moto G (third generation) with its price tag, waterproof capabilities and stock Android offering  gives good competition to the Mi 4i.
