We are not far away from the day when, on an average, everyone in the country (if not the world) will own a smartphone with Internet support. And that will mainly be possible with more and more smartphone companies getting into the act and releasing devices meant for all, a trend that has already kicked off.
However, the scenario we are talking about involves the low-to-mid range segment where most of the action is expected to happen. But what if we rise a bit further and take the ones that are just below 26k. What are our choices then? Apparently, many.
The below 26k segment has and is still being tried and tested by a host of different manufacturers, with Samsung, Sony and others already at the front with their own offerings. But apart from that, there are a number of other vendors such as Micromax and Gionee that are looking to enter the race.
And two such devices trying to make a name for themselves in the market are the newly introduced Panasonic P81 and somewhat recent Motorola Moto X. While Panasonic is looking to enter the market after a long time with a device that could actually bring over some popualrity, the Moto X is just another product of Motorola's ingenious plans with the Indian market.
But if we are to take both the devices side by side and seek a comparison between the both, who do you think will gain the most popularity in the race in the coming months? Let's take a look at the comparsion between both.

Panasonic P81 Vs Motorola Moto X: Processors
The engines of both the device could be of great importance to you if you are reading this comparison since both the devices, as expected, offer great hardware support.
While the Motorola Moto X is equipped with a dual core 1.7 GHz Krait processor, the P81 comes equipped with a much greater 1.7GHz octa-core processor. And that's quite the firepower.
Panasonic P81 Vs Motorola Moto X: Storage and RAM
The Motorola Moto X offers 2GB of RAM to users while offering the device in a 16GB internal memory variant. However, the option to expand the device's memory is missing as an external microSD slot for additional memory has not been included.
The P81 smartphone, however, offers a lesser 1GB of RAM while offering the device in 8 GB internal memory variant. However, there's the option to expand the device's memory up to 32GB as an external microSD slot for additional memory is present.

While the Moto X is currently available at Rs. 25,999, the P81 is set to be available at a price tag of Rs. 18,990.
Panasonic P81 Vs Motorola Moto X: Verdict
If you are following this comparison with an open mind, you will surely see how the Panasonic P81 is actually scoring more in every aspect than the Moto X, even the price. The reason for this is quite obvious. Panasonic is looking toward an agressive market strategy that will look to topple all others in the race.
So if indeed you are looking at this with an open mind, we are guessing that the Panasonic P81 will have more takers than the Moto X.
