Earlier this week, Yu Yunicorn, the new flagship smartphone from the homegrown manufacturer went official for a price of Rs 12,999. It features a nice design, good looks, and impressive specifications.
While the Yunicorn is one of the budget-friendly smartphones one can buy, the market has another new launch that is also priced below Rs 15,000. Well, the talk is about the Moto G4 Plus that was launched sometime in May.
The Moto G4 Plus is a great phone in terms of specs and it comes in two versions priced at Rs 13,999 and Rs 14,999. Today, we have come up with a detailed comparison between these smartphones to know which one would be a great buy.
Yunicorn has a premium look
Yu Yunicorn has a premium design with a metallic, elegant, and symmetrical design. It features chamfered edges and brushed aluminum back design adding to its great looks. There is 2.5D arc glass at the front of the device.
Moto G4 Plus is relatively thinner than the Yunicorn measuring 7.9 mm (while that of Yunicorn is 8.15 mm). The device feels pretty light when it is held.
Display is almost identical
Both Yunicorn and Moto G4 Plus flaunt an identical 5.5-inch display with FHD 1080p resolution resulting in a pixel density of 401 ppi. While Yunicorn has a scratch resistant coating, the Motorola offering has Gorilla Glass 3 protection.

The display on the Motorola smartphone was quite crisp and vibrant with good viewing angles in our hands-on. We are yet to see how capable the Yunicorn's display is.
Yunicorn has 4 GB RAM for lag-free performance
Yu Yunicorn is equipped with an octa-core Helio P10 processor and 4 GB of RAM that can render better multitasking and lag-free performance. On the other hand, Moto G4 Plus comes with a Snapdragon 617 octa-core processor.
The Motorola phone comes in two variants - one with 16 GB internal storage space with 2 GB RAM and the other with 32 GB default storage and 3 GB RAM. In comparison, the storage capacity of Yunicorn is 32 GB. Both phones support up to 128 GB of expandable memory support.
Camera performance is decent
Yunicorn features a 13 MP main camera sensor at its back with dual LED flash and a 5 MP front-facing selfie shooter.
The Moto G4 Plus boasts of a 16 MP rear-facing camera with laser and phase detection autofocus and dual LED flash. It has a 5 MP selfie camera with auto-HDR and f/2.2 aperture.
Yunicorn is based on Project Highway
While Moto G4 Plus is fueled by Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow, Yunicorn is based on Android on Steroids - Project Highway that gives a pure Android experience to the users.
Fingerprint scanner at the front
Both smartphones have fingerprint scanners at the front keeping the handsets secure. The one on Yunicorn is claimed to offer chip-level security to the smartphone. We have found the one on Moto G4 Plus to be fast and precise.
Yunicorn has a huge battery
A 4,000 mAh battery is employed in the Yunicorn and it is claimed to give the smartphone a life of 4 days. The 3,000 mAh battery in the Moto G4 Plus can also give a long lasting backup, but not as in the case of Yunicorn.
Both are good smartphones with different sets of specs and features. The prime difference is the platform. Those who like the pure Android platform can opt for the Yunicorn.
If you are not specific of the build, you can go for the Moto G4 Plus. Price-wise, these phones are not much different as they fall in the sub-Rs 15,000 range.
