Just as the Motorola Moto G has recently been crowned most popular, value-for-money smartphone in the most economic price segment (sub Rs 15,000 or US$250) in India, here comes a great competitor and VS phone, that has seemingly, almost unbelievably, snatched its crown almost overnight. Or at least stands a good chance of doing so.

In the race of “Which is better”, between Asus ZenFone 5 vs  Motorola Moto G, the significant features of how these phones compete with each other has been explained with comparison.



Asus ZenFone 5 comes with 8MP camera, with 5.o inch 720p display, along with 1.6ghz dual core processor, where the Moto G has won the processor race with  Asus ZenFone 5, where it has 1.2 Ghz quad core processor. The best part of  Asus ZenFone 5 over Moto G is its Ram, where it comes with 2gb ram, 8GB internal memory along with extendable till 32gb memory and its 8mp Brilliant camera made a greater difference.

Unfortunately, the days of its unrivaled supremacy may be a thing of the recent past. The low-key Taiwanese company, Asus, has introduced the ‘Zenfone’ that has wowed critics instantly and impressed enough to sell 40,000 phones in 3 days.

The Moto G was especially loved for including a 5 MP camera that took some pretty good shots as well as video but apparently the Zenfone outdoes it with its 8 MP rear shooter and its versatility in both well-lit and low-light conditions. It also allows you to do some nifty time-lapse recording.The Economic Times says that the Zenfone trumps the Moto G in terms of image quality.

Of course, it’s wise to remember that these are early days. In order to match the Moto G’s success, the Zenfone will have to go the distance in terms of reliability and customer support—both areas that Moto G has excelled in. Slipping up here could be the product’s death knell.

But for now, Moto G has some serious competition to worry about. But still, Motorola is upcoming with its newer range of smartphone series Moto G2, which may supersede again with Asus Zenfone 5 and win the world markets.
