The Xiaomi Effect : Moto G Prices Slashed by Rs. 2000

Browse This Page

It’s only been a week and a few days since the Xiaomi Mi3 went on sale in India for a impressive price of Rs. 13999/-, and it looks like major brands are taking a major beating. Motorola who basically ruled this price segment from Rs. 12,000 to 15,000 has been feeling the major grunt of the Xiaomi fever.

Motorola hopes to change that by dropping their Moto G prices by a whopping Rs. 2000. If you don’t already know the Moto G sports a 4.5-inch HD display with a 1,280×720-pixel resolution and 329ppi. Powering its insides is a quad-core, 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, Adreno 305 graphics, and 1GB of RAM.

There is a 2070 mAH battery inside, but unfortunately there is no expandable storage. At the back of the Moto G there is a 5 MP camera and a 1.3 MP camera at the front.

Incase you are sick of the Xiaomi selling out before you click the buy button, you can find the new dropped prices of the Moto G below.

    That’s cute….
    But what will Motorola do when redmi 1s will get launched, even 1s is much better than moto g, at a price of 7k…
    Only brand freaks will go for moto

  • Omkar Parab

    another china maker,one plus will be a game changer in the next couple of months..on paper its even better than xaiomi..specs identical to high end phones,has 3gb ram,snapdragan801..i am going the more eligant way..the 4s..:)

  • Vineeth S Vinnyxtreme

    Hope other manufacturers follow the suit

  • Shaurya Jaiswal

    xiaomi… the brand which sells a device in 5 seconds! vs motorola – the innovator which gives preference to user experience over raw specs.. and yeah how can i forget updates… thank you, but moto is moto…

    And people prefer CM over MiUi

  • Akshay Maini

    Fan following of one plus one is bigger than xiaomi.. The decision to launch one plus one in India was based on India’s response to the invitation thing And crazy trick of bringin 1+ from USA.. This response compelled them to even consider its launch in India.. Bec 1+ is the phone which is not even easy to buy in countries it have been launched already.. So yes xiaomi gonna priced mi4 less than 1+.. Which i call pre -slashing,, lol.

  • Akshay Maini

    Some.people are actually getting faulty mi3 handsets defects like auto boot up etc, and flipkart isn’t doing much to help them… I’m not against mi3, me too exited to have one budget snappy800 ,I sold my nexus5 bec of xiaomi but it’s too very early to buy a handset just bec of high en and specs..

  • Omkar Parab

    irrespective of the link above….i wud trust moto as well…and yes every phone is made in china…but later approved…like CE…etc..etc…its too early to trust xiaomi…service centre ?….what if u get a faulty phone…we have lenovo for moto which is well established atleast for laptops,not sure for mobiles only….xiaomi cannot keep up to their demands in china itself…anyway i dnt like any of the two…

  • Piyush Kumar Dhal

    one plus will be priced around 20000 probably over

  • Subhashis Chowdhury

  • Ajay Garg

    Sorry Akshay I think you don’t know the strategy Motorola slashed its price because they don’t have smartphone with similar specs as mi3 has but after one plus one released price of mi3 never slashes because Xiaomi has mi4 which has same specs as in one plus one

    And guys before selling ur phone ,make sure u encrypt ur data after u done with ur back up process.,bec even u erase ur data it still can be recovered, encrypting it before erasing makes it tough to recover.. #justsaying add me on twitter @gangstakki
