Recently, a brand new research from IDC was unearthed revealing that the Indian domestic smartphone market is one of the most open and full of potential among other such markets in Asia-Pacific. And that seems about right since the Indian market, in recent times, has attracted a host new and old names to try put their lucks.
The market already sees a lot of action from the likes of Apple, Samsung and Sony (to name a few among others), but that doesn't mean the market hasn't been open to other new names such as Karbonn, Lava and Micromax who have just joined in the race to the top of the charts.
While we already had a number of devices already released, as well as eagerly awaiting number of others who are coming out in the open in the coming months, we can be sure of the fact that the market will keep on growing and opening up as days pass by.
Now, two devices that are currently trying to make the most out of this openness of the market are the new Huawei Honor 3C and the already ultra-popular Moto G handset from Motorola. Both the devices, as expected, have a lot to offer in terms of features and specs.
So, if we were to keep all others in the race out of contention for the moment, how do you think the Moto G and the Honor 3C will fare when pitted against each other? We take a closer look at the specs comparison between both.
Huawei Honor 3C Vs Motorola Moto G: Operating Systems
There's not much to choose from in this respect since both the devices, as expected, come running the Google-based Android operating system. However, the Moto G has a bigger hand since it offers the latest Android KitKat out of the box, compared to the Huawei Honor 3C's Jelly Bean offering.
Huawei Honor 3C Vs Motorola Moto G: Display and Dimensions
The Huawei Honor 3C sports a 5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touch screen, while rendering 720 x 1280 pixels resolution. The device's overall dimensions measure up to 139.5 x 71.4 x 9.2 mm, while it weighs in at 140g.
The Motorola Moto G, on the other hand, sports a 4.5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touch screen, while rendering a similar 720 x 1280 pixels resolution. The device's overall dimensions measure up to 129.9 x 65.9 x 11.6 mm, while it weighs in at 143g.
Huawei Honor 3C Vs Motorola Moto G: Camera
The Huawei Honor 3C, in terms of camera, offers an 8-megapixel primary camera with autofocus and LED flash. There's also a secondary 5-megapixel camera at the front for all your selfie needs.
The Motorola 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.
Huawei Honor 3C Vs Motorola Moto G: Processors
Both the devices, as expected from new age smartphones, offer decent enough engines to support all your day to day needs that you may look to execute via your smartphones.
While the Motorola Moto G is equipped with a 1.2 GHz quad core cortex-A7 processor and Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset, its Huawei counterpart powers up the Honor 3C via a slightly better 1.3 GHz quad core processor.
Huawei Honor 3C Vs Motorola Moto G: Storage and RAM
The Huawei Honor 3C, in this respect, offers 2GB of RAM with the devcie arriving in an 8GB internal memory variant. Also, 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.
The Motorola Moto G, on the other hand, offers 1GB of RAM while offering the device in 8GB 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.
Huawei Honor 3C Vs Motorola Moto G: Battery
While the Motorola-made Moto G juices up the KitKat-powered device via a 2070 mAh battery, the Huawei Honor 3C is powered by a much greater 2300 mAh battery.
Huawei Honor 3C Vs Motorola Moto G: Price
While the Huawei Honor 3C is available at a price tag of Rs. 14,649, the Motorola Moto G has been made available for Rs. 12,499 and Rs. 13,999 for its 8GB and 16GB variants, respectively.
Huawei Honor 3C Vs Motorola Moto G: Verdict
We hav said this earlier, and we are going to say this again. With the market so much inclined to the latest version Android, it's only normal for devices to actually feature the KitKat on the phones, although some think otherwise.
Keeping the view of discussion limited for the time being, the Moto G has gained so much traction over the months just because of its KitKat offering. And in this case, we don't really see the Honor 3C causing any kind of discomfort for the Moto G. Not at least for the time being.
