AnonD-389018, 27 Apr 2015Guys go for moto g 2 2nd gen, that's awesome having stock android.I've used 3 of them-
prime (of a friend)
and I'll give a very honest comparison of the three being unbiased of the companies.
Three of them are good but I'll say each of them have +ves and negatives over one another.
Moto g is a very good performer. No lags at all, pulls everything very smooth. Also feature list is good, screen is good (294 ppi) So I personally like it the best just because of performance and stock version of android which is very quick. But it also has its drawbacks like - battery is average, At low signal areas it loses all the signal. Feature list is good like - OTG support, Gaming pad support, Gyroscope, HD screen, Very quick on updates (presently running lollipop) but somewhere we have to compromise and its battery. Its not actually bad and is obviously better than indo chinese brands like - micromax, lava and even better than most phones of HTC. But If battery is major priority then prime is better in this case. However Prime lacks a no. of features and one which is a HD screen. Less pixel count, low resolution screen means more is the battery life.
Grand 2 is good enough but high end gaming shows frame drops. Phone has a good camera (somewhat better than moto g), although disappointment is that it does not supports pen drive. Screen is better than Prime (280 ppi against 220 ppi of prime). Pixels are not visible in normal usage but frame drops in high end games are very frequent. Also the device is quite old. Lucky are those people who bought it in right time and enjoyed it but I seriously feel that now there are better phones available at same price, however Grand 2 still has so much to fight but lack of a few features make me think that soon samsung will be looking to launch a newer version of this device. So to stick with older one now wont be a very good idea. Also if someone wants most of the features which are missed in prime and at the same time don't want to shift from samsung to any other brand then still grand 2 is a better option.
Prime has very good battery life but on acc. of lack of a no. of features. Check this shortcoming list- If anyone is OK with all these missing features then this phone is surprisingly good.
No HD Screen (220 ppi, disappointing as per the price)
No OTG support (which means no pen drive can be connected)
No ambient light sensor (Not a big issue)
No gyroscope (hardly use this feature)
No keypad lights (shows price cut)
Very low quality speaker (disappointing)
Very late updates
But the goods are -
A very superior front camera as compared with moto g.
Better battery life.
Hope this helps.
queries are welcomed.
When I tried to install some apps, it doesn't automatically show my app. It needs to restart before it will show. And when I uninstall some apps, I need to restart also to remove from the list of my apps :(
