Motorola Moto G and Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 both are available in Nepal at the moment. Both this device offers almost same specs. But because of massive marketing policy from Samsung, Grand 2 looks like a better device on papers but I feel the price of Grand 2 is Overrated. For a price of Grand 2 ,you can get a Moto G(16GB) and still have around 10K to spare.
Technical Specs Comparison:
[table id=4 /]
Moto G has a smaller screen with better Technology in IPS LCD.The viewing angle and color saturation are better because of IPS LCD panel.Whereas in Grand 2,it has a much larger 5.2 TFT screen. The Grand 2 has a much better screen than its precedence Grand 1. If you are looking for a larger screen, Grand 2 is your obvious choice.However, if you have a tiny hands and want to use it comfortably with 1 hand, Moto G would be perfect for you.
Moto G is a dust and water resistant device but its made of Plastic. Samsung is also made of plastic but it does has a faux leather on the back. Both this device doesnt look premium like the iphone but you have to consider the fact that they are mid-range smartphones.
The biggest feature of the Moto G smartphone is the pure Google Stock Android Experience and timely update as it is a Google phone. It currently runs on the latest Android 4.4.2 kitkat.
Grand 2 runs on Android 4.3 Jelly bean with Touch Wiz UI. The kitkat 4.4 will certainly be availalbe but no specific date has been fixed from Samsung.
Both this device is powered with Snapdragon 400 chipset with 1.2 GHZ quad core Cortex A7 processor. It has a less powerful Adreno 305 GPU. So, both this device will do fairly “OK” in terms of Gaming.
The major disadvantage of Moto G is it doesnt support memory card expansion and 8 GB model could well not be enough. So , I would prefer you buy a 16 GB model.Whereas Grand 2 has a memory card slot that is expandable upto 64 GB.
Moto G only has a 5MP camera but it captures decent photos. It can only record 720P video. Grand 2 has a better camera than Moto G with 8MP shooter capable of FHD recording.
Moto G has a 2070 mAh battery and Grand 2 has a larger 2600 mAh battery. But Moto G has a smaller screen and Grand 2 has a bigger screen so the usage is almost same in both scenerio.
If you want a smaller screen that fits perfectly on your hand for one hand operation and a timely firmware update, MOTO G would be a wise decision. However , you are in a multimedia stuff and want to watch movies on a bigger screen and want a larger backup on your SD card, you should go for a Samsung Grand 2 . The hardware performance is the same in both devices and both these device are capable of running high end games as well.
