So, basically you can see a lot of differences between them. Motorola has improved many things including processor, RAM, camera and connectivity options. The new Moto G 3rd Gen comes in two variants in case of RAM and storage- the 8GB storage + 1GB RAM and  the 16GB + 2GB RAM, so that you can choose the one that suits your usage style.The display is same in both generations of Moto G, however 4G has been a major point which Motorola has kept in mind and have added in the phone. It is also IPX7 certified, which makes it water-resistant up to 3 feet for 30 minutes

In case of camera we can see a big upgrade- 13MP primary camera is there on board instead of 8MP which we saw in the 2nd Gen Moto G, also the front camera has been bumped up from 5MP to 8MP. The processor got a minor upgrade, from Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 to Snapdragon 410, so that won’t make a huge difference. The battery has been a little more powerful on Moto G 3rd Gen, than its predecessor. The Moto G 3rd Gen is available for a price of Rs. 11,999 (for 8GB variant) and Rs. 12,999 (16GB variant) at Flipkart.Motorola-Moto-G-3rd-Gen-on-Flipkart-1
