Moto G 2014

Definitely on paper this phone may not seem to be good at all, but when you use it you will feel the
real smoothness that this phone has. Although it has the same 1.2 Ghz Quad Core Snapdragon 400
CPU with Adreno 305 that the earlier Moto G (2013) had but the internals have been upgraded and
it performs alot more better than that one! It is currently running Stock Android 5.0.2 and will soon get
5.1 as we all know how fast Motorola is in giving updates to their phones! Though it does not have LTE connectivity but no worries, LTE Model is also available but only in some regions.

Huawei Honor 4X

Priced lower than the Moto G this phone packs some really Awesome and powerful specs, though misses
the stock UI. This phone is a bit faster in multitasking than the Moto G due to it’s 2 GB of RAM. Though it is a bit slow in day to day usage due to Huawei’s Emotion UI 3.0 on top of Android 5.0 Lollipop (4.4.2 in some regions). The phone has every feature that one needs but lacks behind in Internal Storage (8GB) still, you can expand anytime. The Camera is again a powerful point of this phone! Though it misses 1080p Display and pixels are clearly visible if looked closely due to 5.5 inches. Still it has some top of line Specs that fulfill a user’s need!
Some quick Specs:
5.5 inches 1280*720p Display with Gorilla Glass 3 maybe (Not officially mentioned)

Nokia Lumia 730

It’s worth mentioning this phone if you are not into Platform worries. This is one of the last phone to carry the Nokia Logo on the top but the build is the best thing in this piece! Fully made of plastic but you will never notice that cheap feel. The Performance and Battery are tipical Windows – GREAT! The Battery can easily last you for 1 Day if you are a heavy user and 2 Days if you are a Moderate user. Performance of even cheap Windows phones is great so this phone has it! DAT Camera= AWESOME! On paper it is just a 6.7MP Camera but it is still better than the 8MP one in the Moto G 2014!
