Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 has dominated the budget smartphone space for some time now, beating the Samsung Galaxy J7 (2016) at one time. But that might not be the case for long, what with Motorola’s very own Moto G4, making the competition interesting.

While both smartphones have a 5.5-inch Full HD display, Redmi Note 3 offers several display features – a 78-degree viewing angle, special night mode and sunlight display tech. Not to be beaten without a fight, the Moto G4 boasts of a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 Shield that is light, thin and damage-resistant. Since choosing which smartphone to buy will be difficult based on display alone, it is best to make a direct comparison of specifications and features.

  • 16 GB, 2 GB RAM; 32 GB, 3 GB RAM

The list of specifications not helping at all? Know that the battery life between both smartphones differ by 1000 mAh, with the Redmi Note 3 taking the higher rate. This means it will last longer than the Moto G4.

Based on the specs, it is also obvious that Motorola’s budget offering falls short in terms of processor performance, although it has an advantage of a storage capacity of 64 GB with 4 GB RAM.

This is not to say that the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 is the best choice. It might still come down to personal preferences. So don’t stop taking a closer look with the features and specifications comparison.
