With Xiaomi Redmi Note landing in India on January 2nd, the excitement is building up already. Xiaomi plans to move 50,000 units through flash sale in the country on the day through its official distributor partner Flipkart. We’ve seen such sales in the past and probably won’t be wrong in estimating that the phone will be sold out in minutes. But what if you cannot get your hands on the phone that day? Let’s take a look at the next best alternative and see how it fares.
|Xiaomi Redmi Note||Moto G2|
|Display||5.5 inch 720p||5 inch 720p|
|SoC||Snapdragon 400||Snapdragon 400|
|Processor||1.6GHz quad core||1.2GHz quad core|
|GPU||Adreno 305||Adreno 305|
|Platform||Android 4.2||Android 5.0|
Spec wise, the Redmi Note is better in almost every aspect compared to the Moto G2. From processor, to RAM, battery and camera, the former bests the Moto G2 in all aspects. It’s even got 4G that will supposedly work on Indian carriers. However, given the network conditions in India, that shouldn’t be a deciding factor for most of the population. Non 4G version of the phone with an octa core MediaTek processor will also be sold for Rs 8,999.
The Moto G2 doesn’t just through it away though. It’s got a newer version of Android (and will be among the first to get updates in the future too) and also comes with a more pocket friendly size and greater pixel density.
However, at Rs 9,999, the Redmi Note 4G is Rs 3,000 cheaper than the Moto G2, which makes it an obvious choice. In case you can’t get your hands on it, there’s always Moto G2 to buy with a much better brand perception in India and perhaps even better after sales service.
