Two smartphones are at it again, as the Motorola Moto M and Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 go head-to-head in this battle of Android devices. But, what does each gadget has to impress a potential buyer looking for the best without hurting the budget? Does the price make up for the technology that each gadget has? Well, here are a few things that you have to know before you decide.
These devices were released a year apart from each other and yet they look like they were just days away from being introduced to the public. At first glance, they might exactly look like they have the same specs, but actually you can feel the difference once you use the device for yourself. The pixel density of both devices are identical at 401ppi.
A good thing about the Moto M is that it has a rugged design that can withstand water splashes. Its splash resistant design also features fingerprint security. It also has a scratch-resistant screen with its Corning Gorilla Glass 4, on top of its light and proximity sensors.
The processor on the Moto M might be a bit inferior than the Redmi Note 3. Accordingly, the Moto M only has 2.2GHz octa-core processor, while the Redmi Note 3 has a 1.4GHz hexa-core processor.
The clear advantage of the Moto M is that it has a 3GB of RAM, compared to the 2GB on the Redmi Note 3. Likewise, it has an internal storage of 32GB, in comparison to the 16GB of the other. Moreover, it has an 8MP front-facing camera resolution, compared to that of the Redmi Note 3 with only 5MP. Still, both have rear-facing cameras with 16MP resolution.
The battery capacity on the Moto M might just be the problem as it only has 3050mAh, in comparison to the Redmi Note 3 with 4050mAh. Well, this should be a very challenging feature for the Moto M as an older device has beaten it in this category. However, they are not user replaceable.
The graphics processor on the Moto M is a Mali-T860 MP2, while the Redmi Note 3 is a PowerVR G6200. Both have storage expansion of up to 128GB.
Software and Connectivity Features
The firmware on the Moto M is Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and it has a couple of slots for the nano SIMs. It only has no infrared port and no FM radio either.
The Redmi Note 3 has an outdated Android 5.1 Lollipop and no NFC connectivity, but it has an infrared and FM radio capability. Both devices are also capable of Wi-Fi and 4G/LTE connectivity that is not present in most mid-range devices.
If you are going to buy a smartphone these days, you should make sure that it fits your budget. However, it should not compromise the quality and the experience of this product. Browsing some information about the device can also help because you deserve to know the specs before deciding which one to purchase.
