Motorola has long been the undisputed champion of the mid-segment smartphone race. Beginning from Moto G-first gen, Moto has had a strong hold which is now being challenged by new entrants in the smartphone industry.
Honor India recently released its latest smartphone Honor 6X for Rs 12,999. Judging from the price bracket, the smartphone comes as a tough contender for all the players dwelling in the mid-range segment.
One such contender is Moto G4 Plus, which has been enjoying its top spot for quite a while now. The competition is strong, very strong and here we present its live screening to you:
Both the phones don a 5.5 inch Full HD display with 1920 X 1080 pixel density so there is not much comparison here.
Moto G4 Plus runs on Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Being a near–stock Android, it is safe to assume that the device gets OS updates fairly quicker than other devices (Moto G4 Plus has already received the Android Nougat update).
Honor 6X, on the other hand, runs on Android 6.0 with Huawei's own EMUI 4.1 skin. Huawei has always been proud of their in-house software and bets big on the level of ease it provides to its users. The company has always been innovative and doesn’t take user experience lightly at all. Still, for a pure Android fan, Honor 6X has a different feel to it altogether.
Moto G4 Plus comes with two storage options: a variant with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage and another with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal storage.
Honor 6X has also released two variants in India, one with 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory whereas the other one which crosses the price bracket marginally comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage.
Both the phones can support an additional memory of up to 128GB via microSD.
Moto G4 Plus sports a rear camera of 16-megapixel with dual LED flash and a front camera of 5-megapixel.
Honor 6X has stepped up the camera game with its ‘dual cameras’ in the rear. A rear camera of 12-megapixel is supported by a 2-megapixel secondary camera to add depth in the images. This also enables the smartphone to add Bokeh Effect into the pictures.
In addition to this, the phone has an 8-megapixel front camera.
Moto G4 Plus takes its juice from a 3000 mAh battery with TurboPower. Motorola has always been praised for the kind of battery backup its smartphones provide.
To tackle this, Honor 6X has put in a 3,340 mAh battery which runs for two days straight at an average usage. It seems like Honor did not want to be left behind in this segment either.
Moto G4 Plus starts from Rs 13,499 (1GB RAM) and the 32GB RAM version costs Rs 14,999.
While Honor 6X starts at Rs 12,999 (3GB RAM) and the top version costs Rs 15,999 with 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
A look across the spec sheet indicates one clear winner out of this comparison. Honor 6X easily outruns the current record holder in terms of Camera, Battery and Storage options.
Moto G4 Plus, meanwhile, promises the best Android experience and the life of a signature Motorola phone.
