If you are looking to purchase an affordable smartphone that is a great alternative to the likes of Galaxy Note 9 and iPhone XS Max which cost more than one thousand dollars, then you arrived at the right place. Today we are going to take two of the best mid-range smartphones ever made and compare them in order to see which one is better. The two smartphones are Motorola’s Moto G and Sony’s Xperia Z3 Compact. Without any further ado, let’s get into it.
Moto G is a reliable smartphone that comes with a cheap price tag. However, you shouldn’t be fooled by the price tag because Moto G still offers a high-end 4.5-inches IPS LCD display that features a 720 x 1280 pixel resolution. On the other hand, we have the Xperia Z3 Compact which is equipped with a slightly bigger 4.6-inches IPS LCD display that features the same pixel resolution.
Under the Hood
Leaving the display technology aside, what’s sitting beneath the hood of these two smartphones is what really matters. Moto G is powered by Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU that clocks at 1.2GHz. The CPU is also coupled with an Adreno 305 GPU and 1GB of RAM.
If you thought that Moto G’s CPU is impressive, then Xperia Z3 Compact is going to blow you away! This smartphone is fueled by Qualcomm’s quad-core Snapdragon 801 CPU which clocks at 2.5GHz. The CPU is bundled with an Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB of RAM.
While the battle between Moto G and Xperia Z3 Compact is a close one when it comes to display technology, we can’t say the same thing about hardware power. Sony did a great job designing Xperia Z3 Compact and this can be clearly seen when taking a look under its hood. Therefore, Xperia Z3 Compact is the winner!
