Motorola Moto E vs Motorola Moto G: What’s different?

FEATURES

motorola-moto-e-vs-motorola-moto-gMotorola launched the Moto E today at an event in Delhi with a price tag of Rs 6,999. The entry-level Motorola smartphone has some impressive specs and could shake up the sub-Rs 10,000 segment. The Moto G, on the other hand, has broken all records for the company and Vice President Punit Soni even said, “Moto G is the best selling smartphone in Motorola’s history.” So how different are the two devices? We pit the two devices in a specification comparison to find out. Also Read - Motorola Defy 2021 rugged phone with 48MP camera, IP68 rating announced

Both the devices flaunt similar sized displays with only 0.2-inch inches differentiating the two. There is however a big difference when it comes to the resolution and the pixel densities. The Moto E has a qHD resolution display with a pixel density of 256ppi, which trails behind the 720p 326ppi display on the Moto G.

HARDWARE

There is again a big difference between the two devices in this department, with the Moto G powered by a Snapdragon 400 quad-core SoC compared to the Snapdragon 200 dual-core SoC on the Moto E. Motorola has paired the two processors with 1GB of RAM.

On the storage front, the Moto G has two variants with 8GB and 16GB internal storage. But the Moto E has an advantage here as it has a microSD card slot. The 4GB internal storage can be expanded using a microSD card.

The two devices also have a nano coating on the inside as well as the outside, which should keep it safe against the accidental splash of water.

CAMERAS

The Moto E misses out on quite a few essentials in this department. While the 5-megapxiel rear camera is the same as the one on the Moto G, the snapper on budget Motorola smartphone is not accompanied with a flash.

On the front too, things aren’t any better as there is no front-facing camera on the Moto E. On the Moto G there is a 1.3-megapixel snapper.

BATTERY

The Moto E features a 1,980mAh battery, while the Moto G features a 2,070mAh. The battery on the latter was able to last us a day and we expect the same would be the case on the former too. We will however reserve our judgment till we have tested the device.

SOFTWARE

The two devices run on Android 4.4.2 KitKat, so this round is a tie. Motorola has also guaranteed that the Moto E will be updated to the next version.

Motorola has also introduced a host of new features on the Moto E. These features include Moto Alert, which automatically alerts preset contacts when you leave a particular location, Instant SMS with your location for emergency situations, and an Emergency mode, which sends a call to a preset contact or sound an alarm. The dual-SIM function also comes with intelligent calling, which learns your usage and automatically selects the SIM based on the contact you are calling.

In the end, it won’t be fair to compare the two devices spec-by-spec as they are both targeting two completely different segments. They have a lot going for them and both are game changers in their respective segments. Priced at Rs 6,999 the Moto E is offering a lot for this kind of budget and will certainly set a standard for entry-level phones. The Moto G, on the other hand, will continue ruling mid-range segment.
