Flipkart has slashed Moto G prices by INR 2,000/ offering a discount to promote the sales and while Xiaomi has its own ‘pray-and-you-might-get’ buying process, we bring you a comparison between Xiaomi Mi3 and Moto G.
We have also included Lava Iris 504Q which seems like a great device, though not marketed well.

At INR 11,999, Moto G looks like a good deal, i.e. assuming you want to buy today and not wait for Xiaomi to ship more devices (over the last two sales, Xiaomi has shipped less than 20,000 devices to India). Xiaomi sales process has left too many frustrated customers, so its definitely time for Motorola, Samsung and others to play to their inventory advantage.
Having said that, if you by specs, Mi3 is a definite winner. What are your thoughts?
