    I Need your Help Rahul Dubey Via Best Tech Guru

    Micromax Canvas Turbo
    DISADVANTAGES:-

    Short Battery Standby Time: 4.4 Days(Average: 16.7 Days)With short battery standby time, you have to charge your phone after a period of time even if it was in idle condition.

    Short Battery Talk: Time7 Hours(Average: 8.1 Hours)With short battery talk time, you won’t be able to talk continously on the phone for a long period of time without charging

    Motorola Moto G

    Non-Removable Battery: Cannot switch off phone by removing battery when your phone freezes. Also cannot replace the battery or use spare battery when battery performance is degarded.

    • Hello Aditi,

      Among the 3 phones you have mentioned, Motorola Moto G is the best. Buy the 16 GB version so you will get more space. And the phone’s performance is great, it doesn’t freezes at all. It has good battery life.

    I WANT TO PURCHASE A 3G SMART PHONE WITH NEW TECHNOLOGIES, PLEASE SUGGEST ME WITH POPULAR BRANDS, MY RANGE IS 10,000 TO 15,000

  21. vinay

    Hi, can you suggest me a phone upto INR 15 K (+) 2K. With best camera, HD recording and playback, Good battery backup, Good touchscreen and to some up all it should be the best buy among all the handsets within the range.

    • Hello Nagesh,

      iberry Auxus Nuclea N1 has the largest battery. But Moto G has an amazing battery backup. With medium to heavy use, its battery last for a day and needs charging only once. The Nuclea N1 can deliver a little better.

  22. Rajesh

    I would like to go for Moto G, but you told that camera is not upt mark.. I have xolo q800, and camera quality is acceptable to me,, is moto G 5MP matching the camera quality of xoloq800 (8mp..but non brand)…

    I can spent upto 17000

    • Hello Rajesh,

      Moto G is amazing. It has a lower 5 MP camera which is very decent being 5 MP. You may have to compromise over the camera quality as it might not match up with Xolo’s 8 MP camera. But you can not get the performance like Moto G with any other phone upto 17 or 20 k. Just amazing. I am using it. Camera is satisfying.

  23. roni

    bro.. i am confused between Moto G, xolo q1000s, xolo q1000 opus, iberry Auxus Nuclea N1. actually my requirements are android+good camera with options+HD/FullHD video recording+good gaming+wifi hotspot with good battery & connectivity. PLZ suggest me the best 1 or if u hv any other in ur mind… tnx bro

    • Hello Roni,

      If you can adjust a little over camera just buy Moto G. With Xolo or any other brand you will get a bigger camera but you will absolutely miss out on the amazing and unmatched performance. Its very good for gaming and connectivity.

      • sanjay patidar

        Hello
        Rahul Sir
        i want to purchase a popular brand smart phone like
        samsung
        gionee
        micromax
        or anything else you suggest me but i want a smartphone with new technologies, my budget is 10,000 to 15,000
        i use first time any smart phone so please help me

  24. Hi Rahul,

    Thanks for suggesting these phones. Please can you help me out in buying a phone in range 15 k which have good perfomance as well as good camera quality in a low light. With these phones i found that camera quality which the companies boast of will not match upto the expectation.

    Thanks and Regards
    Pracheer

    • Hello Pracheer,

      If you want performance then Moto G is the best competing even with the phones of 25,000 range. But you will not get the best camera with Moto G, still being just 5 MP it does a decent job it has good colour reproduction. Another option with a better camera will be Micromax Canvas Magnus (12 MP) but as you said the cameras with these brands are not upto the mark. I too was confused like you but considering the great performance delivered by Moto G, I have ordered one for myself :-)
