While the Indian smartphone market has and is continuously reaching new heights among the top ones in the world, the surge has practically been big in terms of all the budget handsets that we have seen until now.
Following in the footsteps of the Motorola-made Moto G and Moto E, manufacturers currently operating in the Indian handset market have finally come to terms and understand the potential of the budget-friendly handsets. And likewise, almost all the makers are now trying to get the most out of it.
Not only the big names such as Samsung, Sony or HTC are playing it well in the market with their top-end offerings. Other smartphone manufacturers such as Micromax, Karbonn and Lava have already got into the act of releasing smartphones with budget users in mind.
Now two smartphones that are fighting it out among the others in the market are the new Samsung Galaxy Core 2 and the previously released and the uber-popular Motorola Moto G. Both the devices now will once again look to rejuvinate the budget section of the market.
While it hasn't been long since Mahesh Khatri from Mahesh Telecom sent out a tweet suggesting that a new smarpthone, Galaxy Core 2, from Samsung would be launched in India soon, the Motorola Moto G has already been there and enjoying a lot of sales.
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 Galaxy Core 2 will fare when pitted against each other? We take a closer look at the specs comparison between both.
