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.
