The smartphone business is primarily involved of as many as three major segments -- The High-end, the low-to-mid range and the low range. As expected with the Indian market, most of the noise is made by the low-to-mid range and the low range segment.
There are a number of smartphones that are currently featured in both these segments. While there are companies such as Samsung, HTC and Sony currently making rounds in the market with their own affordable offerings, there are other India-based vendors who are also trying hard to get into the act.
Two smartphones that are currently making a lot of noise in this respect are the Nokia X and the Motorola-made Moto E. Both the smartphones while are offered in affordable prices, also offer a host of specs and features that are otherwise difficult to get in that price range.
So if we are to take both the Nokia XL and Motorola Moto E together, who do you think will emerge a clear winner over the other? We take a closer look at their comparison.
Nokia XL Vs Motorola Moto E: Operating System
Not much to choose from here since both the devices coming running the Android operating system, although the Nokia XL runs a more skinned version of the OS. However, the Moto E has an advantage as it dishes out the latest Android KitKat.
Nokia XL Vs Motorola Moto E: Display and Dimensions
The Motorola Moto E sports a 4.3-inch capacitive touch screen, while rendering 540 x 960 pixels resolution. Also, the device's overall dimensions measure up to 124.8 x 64.8 x 12.3 mm. The device weighs in at 142 grams.
The Nokia XL, on the other hand, sports a slightly greater 5-inch IPS LCD capacitive touch screen, while rendering 480 x 800 pixels resolution. The device's overall dimensions measure up to 141.4 x 77.7 x 10.9 mm.
Nokia XL Vs Motorola Moto E: Camera
The Motorola Moto E, in the camera department, offers a 5-megapixel primary camera, sporting a pixel resolution of 2592 х 1944 pixels, with touch focus. The device, however, doesn't come with a front-facing snapper and that's quite the bad news.
The Nokia XL, on the other hand, sports a similar 5-megapixel primary camera, sporting a pixel resolution of 2592 х 1944 pixels. The device, unlike the E, offers a front-facing secondary 2-megapixel shooter.
Nokia XL Vs Motorola Moto E: Processors
Decent, if not great, engines have been fitted into both the devices in order to carry out operations smoothly. While the Motorola Moto E is equipped with a dual core 1.2 GHz Cortex A7 processor, the Nokia XL comes equipped with a dual-core 1 GHz Cortex-A5 processor.
Nokia XL Vs Motorola Moto E: Storage and RAM
The Motorola Moto E offers 1GB of RAM to users while offering the device in a 4GB internal memory variant. Moreover, there's the option to expand the device's memory up to 32GB as an external microSD slot for additional memory is also present.
The Nokia XL smartphone, however, offers a lesser 768MB of RAM while offering the device in 4 GB internal memory variant. Again, there's the option to expand the device's memory up to 32GB as an external microSD slot for additional memory is present.
Nokia XL Vs Motorola Moto E: Battery
While the Moto E juices up the KitKat-powered device via a decent 1980 mAh battery, the XL comes fitted with a more massive 2000 mAh battery.
Nokia XL Vs Motorola Moto E: Price
While the Moto E is currently available at Rs. 6,999 exclusively via Flipkart, the XL is set to be available at a price tag of Rs. 11,349.
Nokia XL Vs Motorola Moto E: Verdict
The Motorola-made Moto E, even before the smartphone was made official, has been expected to bring over great things ported over from the recently released Moto G. And rightfully so since the Moto E is offering a host of specs at a price as low as possible, with the KitKat OS also gracing the device.
By our judgement, even though the XL is a part of the Nokia Android revolution, it still may not have enough in the kitty to go against the Moto E.
