Sharing is caring!

The extremely successful Moto G recently received major updates in its third generation, but it has not taken long for Motorola to offer even better updates.

This comes in the form of the Moto G Turbo Edition, which concentrates on some key areas like performance and display.

Display Differences

The design is identical on the two phones since they share the same exterior elements. The screen also remains the same 5 inches in size, but the resolution has been bumped from 720p on the Moto G to 1080p on theMoto G Turbo Edition. This results in the pixel density are almost jumping 150 PPI. The Moto G has just under 300 pixels per inch while the Moto G Turbo Edition goes towards the 450 figure.This means a substantial improvement in the overall details conveyed by the screen.

Since 1080p has become a standard part in many high-end smartphones, it is not surprising to see this feature trickling down to phones like the Moto G. It would mean a small increase in price, but there are a lot of differences between the two. TheMoto G Turbo Edition feels much more to date with this update.

Speed Improvement

The Moto G had never been short on poor, and this was largely achieved because of having the basicAndroid operating system without any additional user interfaces. This meant that the phone did not require humongous power to run two systems at once. TheMoto G third-generation feels fine with its Snapdragon 410 processor. It is a quad-core 1.4 GHz processor that is available either with 1 GB or 2 GB of RAM (depending on the amount of internal storage). This is more than adequate performance for the basic tasks, but the Moto G may struggle when put under heavy load.

Price Differential

This is where theMoto G Turbo Edition will shine with its new Snapdragon 615 processor. This is an octa-core processor created by combining two quad-core processors at once. Further, it has no options about RAM as it is a standard 2 GB; so is the internal storage of 16 GB. The small increments in performance and display quality results in theMoto G Turbo Edition costing around $ 285 while thebasic Moto G third-generation cost around $ 200.
