Motorola introduced the third iteration of its best-selling Moto G smartphone in July last year in the Indian market. The brand’s Moto range has helped it to make a successful second launch in the country, and the Moto G is one of the best-selling offerings from the vendor here. The Moto G 3rd-gen was released with compelling specs at a competitive price tag of Rs 11,999. Soon after that, the company released the Moto G Turbo edition in India in December last year as the G3 on overdrive for a bumped up price tag of Rs 14,499.
So if you have a Moto G 3rd-gen, and looking to upgrade to the Moto G Turbo, let’s discuss on what makes the Moto G Turbo unique than other devices in its range or better than the regular Moto G 3rd-gen.
Moto G Turbo: what the phone has to brag about!
The Moto G 3rd-gen was released with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 that is clocked at 1.4GHz, coupled with an Adreno 306 GPU. The Moto G Turbo edition on the other hand is backed by a more powerful and newer Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor that offers a clock speed of 1.5GHz, and is further supported by a better Adreno 405 GPU. Overall, the Moto G Turbo offers better performance than the regular Moto G 3rd-gen, and is competitively better than the other devices from popular brands in its range.
Water and dust proof capabilities
Most of the smartphones in the price of the Moto G Turbo edition come with powerful processors, phablet-grade displays and more. However, they miss out one of the most important feature that is water-proofing capabilities. The Moto G 3rd-gen was a waterproof offering with IPX7 certification. The Moto G Turbo in addition to the waterproofing, adds the dust proof feature as well thanks to the IP67 certification. It is one of the few devices in its range to offer such features, which makes it unique.
Fast charging support
A long-lasting battery is one of the most important features that smartphone users crave for in smartphones. The Moto G 3rd-gen and Moto G Turbo, both offer 2,470mAh batteries. However, while the Moto G 3rd-gen supports regular charging, its successor comes with Qualcomm’s fast charging tech support. The new tech allows the phone’s battery gives you about six hours worth usage time after just 15 minutes of charging. It’s worth mentioning, that fast charging support is rare in the other phones in the Moto G Turbo’s rage, which is one of the unique things about it.
A feature-loaded smartphone
The Moto G Turbo is one of the best device in its range. The phone brings a 5-inch HD display with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 3 protection at a budget price tag. It offers 2GB of RAM, a generous 16GB of internal storage, a 13-meg primary snapper, a 5-meg secondary shooter, 4G LTE connectivity, and runs almost stock version of Android 5.1 Lollipop, which will impress the users who like their devices untouched by a vendor when it comes to the Google’s Android OS.
The Moto G Turbo is not so different than the Moto G 3rd-gen. However, by spending a few hundred more bucks, you will be getting a dust-proof design, fast charging support, and a more powerful processor. As for the comparison with other devices in its range, the Moto G Turbo certainly stands out among them as it offers an appealing design with a non-slippery rubber-like rear panel, fast charging tech, a sturdy chassis, and the latest Android OS experience. Overall, if you are looking for a durable smartphone with a compact display, a powerful processor, rugged design, a powerful battery and 4G LTE, the Moto G Turbo is an option worth considering for.
