Motorola today launched the LTE version of the Moto E (2015) in India, priced at Rs 7,999. After disrupting the market with its budget Moto E last year Motorola is trying to make a comeback with iteratively superior versions but the fact remains that the market is currently dominated with smartphones from Xiaomi and other manufacturers who are already offering all the features at a similar price segment. Let’s see how the Motorola’s newest smartphone stacks up against its closest rivals.Price Also Read - MIUI 13 reportedly delayed due to need for further optimisations: Here's what we know

Motorola’s smartphone is the chunkiest of the lot at 12.3mm, followed by the Redmi 2 at 9.4mm, and the thinnest is the Lenovo A7000 at just 8mm. unsurprisingly, the Moto E is the heaviest of the lot as well at 143 grams, while the A7000 weighs 140 grams. Surprisingly the Redmi 2 weighs in at just 133 grams making it the lightest among the trio.

Display

In terms of size, the A7000 comes up top with a 5.5-inch screen, followed by a 4.7-inch screen on the Redmi 2, and a 4.5-inch screen on the Moto E 4G. As for resolution, where Lenovo and Xiaomi’s smartphones boast a HD (1280×720 pixels) display, the Moto E lags behind with a qHD (960×540 pixels) display.

Storage

This round is a tie, with all the three smartphones offering 8GB of onboard memory. The storage can be further expanded up to 32GB using a microSD card.

Processor and RAM

Both the LTE Moto E and the Redmi 2 are powered by a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor with 64-bit capability. The A7000, on the other hand, is powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6752m processor.

While the processor on the Moto E and the Redmi 2 are paired with 1GB of RAM, the chipset on the A7000 is paired with 2GB of RAM.

Photography

Moto E 4G comes with an auto-focus 5-megapixel primary camera, supplemented with a VGA snapper up front. The fact that the Moto E 4G comes without LED flash will weigh against the phone and so does the average secondary camera. Redmi 2 boasts an 8-megapixel primary camera along with LED flash and a 2-megapixel secondary camera. Lenovo A7000 features an 8-megapixel primary camera, with a 5-megapixel secondary camera.

Battery

Lenovo’s A7000 leads with a 2,900mAh battery inside, followed by the Moto E with a 2,390mAh battery. The Redmi 2, on the other hand, lags with a 2,220mAh battery.

Software

The Moto E has the biggest advantage here since it runs on a near-stock Android Lollipop without being burdened by any bloatware. Lenovo A7000 too runs on Android Lollipop, wrapped under the company’s Vibe UI. Xiaomi’s Redmi 2 however still runs on Android KitKat 4.4 wrapped under MIUI 6.

Misc

The Moto E 4G (2015) is the only smartphone in this comparison to boast water resistant capabilities. With its nano coating on the inside as well as the outside, it can easily withstand an accidental splash of water. While the A7000 doesn’t come with such capabilities, it does boast Dolby Atmos technology that is said to deliver a rich sound experience.
