redmi-note-3-comparo

Earlier today, Xiaomi took the wraps off its new phablet in China, the Redmi Note 3. The successor to the Redmi Note 2 not flaunts a full metal unibody design, but is also the first handset in the company s portfolio to boast a fingerprint sensor. It is priced at 899 Yuan (Rs 9,300 approximately) for the 16GB variant, and 1,099 Yuan (Rs 11,400 approximately) for the 32GB variant. At this price segment, comparisons will be made with smartphones like the Motorola Moto G (third-generation) and the Asus Zenfone 2 (ZE551ML). We pit the three smartphones against each other in a comparison of price, specifications and features to see how they fare. For sake of clarity, we are considering the higher-end variants of both the Redmi Note 3 and Moto G. Also Read - Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 reportedly starts receiving MIUI 10.2 final software update

Price: When you factor in the approximate Indian prices, the Redmi Note 3 is cheapest of the three. The Moto G and the Zenfone 2, in comparison, are priced at Rs 12,999 and Rs 14,999 respectively. Also Read - Xiaomi Mi 5, Redmi Note 3 software update support comes to an end

Specifications and features: Where the Redmi Note 3 and the Zenfone 2 flaunt 5.5-inch 1080p displays, the Moto G features a smaller 5-inch display at a resolution of 1280×720 pixels.

The Redmi Note 3 is powered by a 2GHz MediaTek Helio X10 octa-core chipset, the Moto G is powered by a 1.4GHz Snapdragon 410 quad-core chipset, and the Zenfone 2 is powered by a 1.8GHz Intel Atom Z3560 quad-core chipset.

The Zenfone 2 features 2GB of RAM, while the Redmi Note 3 features 2GB of RAM for its 16GB storage variant, and 3GB of RAM for its 32GB storage variant. The Moto G too comes in two storage variants, with the 8GB variant featuring 1GB of RAM, and the 16GB variant featuring 2GB of RAM. Sticking to storage, the Moto G and the Zenfone 2 offer an option to expand the internal storage using a microSD card, but the Redmi Note 3 doesn’t have a microSD card slot.

On paper the three smartphones are identical as far as their photography chops are concerned. They feature a 13-megapixel snapper at the back, and a 5-megapixel selfie camera up front. A camera though cannot be judged on the basis of the megapixel count alone, and we will reserve our judgments till we have reviewed the device.

The Redmi Note 3 has the biggest battery of the bunch at 4,000mAh. It is followed by the Zenfone 2 with a 3,000mAh battery, and the Moto G with a 2,470mAh unit. The three smartphones feature the usual bevy of connectivity options like dual-SIM card slots and 4G LTE, and on the software front run on Android Lollipop.

One of the talking points of the Redmi Note 3 is the fingerprint sensor placed at the back, which Xiaomi claims can unlock the device in just 0.2 seconds. The Moto G, on the other hand, boasts IPX7 certification that keeps it safe from the accidental splash of water.

Out of the three, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 seems like a better product on paper solely due to its specification, fingerprint sensor and metal body. That said, don t expect Xiaomi to launch the smartphone in India any time soon due to its ongoing patent battle with Ericsson, which doesn t allow the company to sell smartphones running on Mediatek’s chipsets. .

A detailed comparison table follows.
