moto g v/s xolo Q1100

Motorola Moto G

Design and Specs– This dual Micro-sim device looks a lot like its cousin Google’ s Nexus in terms of designing but however the specs may not catch up to the latter. It has a 4.5 inch LCD scratch resistant screen with a resolution of 720×1280 pixels. Video experience does become a joy-ride! Apart from this, its 1.2 quad-core snapdragon 400 processor alongside 1 GB RAM and internal memory of 16 GB (also available in 8GB) makes it a storehouse of multiple applications.
Features and Price– Honing its features directly from Google, the smart-phone runs on the Android 4.3 version but is upgradable to KitKat 4.4. This brings the latest software and application updates to it. A 5 mp rear camera along with 1.3 mp front pass off with a pinch of salt. The battery at 2070 mAh power is also decent and the company claims an impressive 24 hours talk-time.
All this loaded with the premium quality build and available with attractive rear panel colours, the Moto G commands a sum of Rs 13,990 in the markets.

Xolo Q1100

Design and Specs- Cutting edges and with the matt finish subtle panel, the Xolo does makes its cliché style impressive. The Q1100 comes with a 5 inch display of resolution 720×1280 however the ppi (pixels per inch) is below 300 unlike the Moto G. Talking about its specs, this device comes packed with a 1.4 Ghz quad-core snapdragon 400 processor along-side 1 GB RAM and an additional Adreno 305 GPU. Its internal storage stands at 8GB bit is expandable upto 32 GB.
Features and Price- It runs on the Android 4.3 Jelly Bean (UPGRADABLE TO Kit Kat 4.4). It impresses us with camera of 8 mp with BSI sensors, high dynamic ranges (HDR) and other camera features. The battery power is clocked at 2000 mAh giving it a little over 12 hours of talk-time.
While the Q series from Xolo has always been quoted at a premium, so is Q1100 at Rs 14,499 in the Indian markets.

Bottom-Line– Although the Motorola Moto G is a good couple of thousands lower than the Xolo Q1100, its camera is bit of a setback. Rest assured both the smart-phones offer similar specs and hardware putting the competition to rest solely on price and brand equity. The after-sales service of Xolo may also disappoint and that of Motorola may not be adequately spread across, so bear those things in mind too!
