With the launch of the Moto G5 Plus by Lenovo at the Mobile World Congress 2017, it is time that we discuss the obvious – the specs comparison of the two much-talked-about smartphones, the Moto G5 Plus and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4. While Moto G5 Plus fares well in terms of service, photographic capabilities and availability, the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 has a powerful battery and is available at a lower price in India. The service provided by Xiaomi, on the other hand, is not really top notch. However, the two phones have a string of similar specifications. The Moto phones are also usually quicker at providing updates when compared to Xiaomi phones, most of which are still running Android Marshmallow.

 

Both the phones, the Moto G5 Plus and the Redmi Note 4, have a metal unibody design and operate on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset with octa-core processor and Adreno 506 GPU. With a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display, the Redmi Note 4 has a 1920 x 1080 px resolution, whereas, the Moto G5 Plus has a slightly smaller 5.2-inch IPS LCD display with the same resolution. The primary camera on the Redmi Note 4 has a 13 MP sensor and though the primary camera of the Moto G5 Plus has a 12 MP sensor, it fares better in terms of photographic capabilities, given its 4K video support. The two phones have the same secondary camera with a 5 MP sensor.

The Xiaomi Redmi Note 4 is packed with a 4100 mAh battery, which leaves behind the Lenovo Moto G5 Plus, since it is powered by a 3000 mAh battery. In the price game too, the Redmi Note 4 has an edge over the Moto G5 Plus, since the Redmi Note 4 is available at the price of Rs. 9999 in India while the Moto G5 Plus, whose availability date is Mid-March, would cost Rs. 14999 in India.

Given below is a Spec by Spec comparison among the Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Moto G5 Plus and its counterpart, the Moto G5.
