The smartphone market sees a lot of ups and downs in recent times. That's because the market is always shifting and changing with more and more new handset makers entering the race to go for the top spot.
While the market is currently monitored mostly by the likes of Apple, Samsung and Sony, more and more new players are trying out their lucks in the department to make sure they also get a slice of that cake of success.
But if we are to keep all others out of the contention for the moment, we will see that not only new players, but a few other existing ones are also trying their best to re-enter the market with a bang.
Two smartphones in that kind of stage are both BlackBerry with its upcoming Z3 and the new Motorola-made Moto G. While BlackBery is waiting to introduce the the Z3 in the India (which will happen in a few weeks), the Moto G is already selling out in large numbers.
So where do both of these smartphones stand when compared against each other? We take a look at their comparison.
BlackBerry Z3 Vs Motorola Moto G: Operating System
A lot of difference in this respect. While the Z3 comes with the lastest BB10.2.1 OS, the Motorola Moto G runs the latest Android KitKat operating system. So more impetus on the Android offering in this case.
BlackBerry Z3 Vs Motorola Moto G: Display and Dimensions
The Motorola Moto G sports a 4.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touch screen, while rendering 720 x 1280 pixels resolution. The device's overall dimensions measure up to 129.9 x 65.9 x 11.6 mm.

BlackBerry Z3 Vs Motorola Moto G: Camera
The BlackBerry Z3, in terms of camera, makes its presence felt by sporting a 5-megapixel primary camera with autofocus and LED flash, with a secondary 1.1-megapixel camera at the front.
The Moto G, on the other hand, sports a lesser 5-megapixel primary camera, sporting a pixel resolution of 2592х1944 pixels, with autofocus and LED flash. The device also has a secondary 1.3-megapixel camera on board that's more than enough for conducting video chats.
BlackBerry Z3 Vs Motorola Moto G: Processors
While the Motorola Moto G is equipped with a 1.2 GHz quad core cortex-A7 processor and Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset, its BlackBerry counterpart powers up the Z3 via a 1.2 GHz dual core Krait 200 processor.
BlackBerry Z3 Vs Motorola Moto G: Storage and RAM
The Motorola-made Moto G offers 1GB of RAM while offering the device in 8 GB and 16 GB internal memory variants. However, there's no option to expand the device's memory as an external microSD slot for additional memory is missing.
The Z3, in this respect, offers 1.5GB of RAM although arriving only in an 8 GB internal memory variant. However, unlike the Moto G, there's the option to expand the device's memory up to 32 GB as an external microSD slot for additional memory has been provided.

BlackBerry Z3 Vs Motorola Moto G: Verdict
Going by the kind of popularity Motorola has already garnered with the Moto G, it's highly unlikely that the device will go out of favor any time soon. However, the BlackBerry Z3 might try to force it's way into the equation, but most will still inclined to use the latest Android offering. So Moto E might just pip over the Z3 riding on the KitKat.
