Since Mo­torola’s come­back in the In­dian mar­ket, the com­pany has been of­fer­ing great de­vices at com­pet­i­tive price. The most pop­u­lar mode from the com­pany’s port­fo­lio has been the Moto G. Last year, in Au­gust it­self, the com­pany has an­nounced the Moto G 3rd gen­er­a­tion, which is now fol­lowed by a slightly higher priced Moto G Turbo. So what’s the dif­fer­ence be­tween the two and is the Moto G Turbo worth the ex­tra cost? In the looks de­part­ment, both the Moto G 3rd gen and the Moto G Turbo look alike. It fea­tures a 5inch HD dis­play at the front and a matt fin­ish at the rear. My re­view unit had a tex­tured rear which awarded it a good grip to hold. While the Moto G was IP x7 cer­ti­fied, the Tubro comes with IP67 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion that makes it a bit more rugged and is both wa­ter and dust re­sis­tant. It can re­sist a drop in a glass of wa­ter but not for longer du­ra­tions. While the Moto G 3rd gen­er­a­tion was avail­able in two vari­ants – 8GB stor­age

with 1GB RAM or 16GB stor­age with 2GB RAM. The Moto G Turbo is avail­able in only one con­fig­u­ra­tion. It is pow­ered by Qual­comm Snap­dragon 615 pro­ces­sor with two quad cores (1.5GHz quad core and 1Ghz quad core) pro­ces­sor and is paired with 2GB RAM. It en­sures smooth per­for­mance even while switch­ing be­tween mul­ti­ple apps. The sec­ond quad core pro­ces­sor comes into ac­tion only when it is re­quired. This smart­phone is pow­ered by a 13MP rear cam­era with auto fo­cus and f2.0 aper­ture. The cam­era in­ter­face is sim­ple and of­fers ba­sic modes such as HDR, slow mo­tion, panorama and widescreen mode. The images cap­tured are de­cent but not the best. It has also got a 5MP front fac­ing cam­era that cap­tures good self­ies. The low light imag­ing was just about av­er­age. The big­gest high­light of the Moto G Turbo is the quick charg­ing sup­port, which the com­pany calls as Tur­boPower. Ac­cord­ing to the com­pany claims, 15 minute charge can juice up the phone by up the phone for close to 6 hours. The charger in­cluded in the box is ca­pa­ble of de­liv­er­ing 12V out­put. It man­ages to charge the fully in just an hour time.
