The Motorola Moto G4 and the Microsoft Lumia 650 were released in early 2016. Let's see how they fare well with each other.

The screen on the Moto G is a 5.5-inch 1080p LCD, while the Lumia 650, has gone with a 5.0-inch display, but with an OLED capacitive touchscreen. The resolution on the Moto G4 is better than the Lumia 650.

When it comes to the Lumia 650, you're getting a low-performance quad-core Snapdragon 212 processor with a clocking speed of 1.3GHz, while the Moto G packs with an octa-core Snapdragon 617 processor having 1.5GHz clocking speed.

You can easily switch between multiple apps in the Moto G4 with 2GB RAM as compared to only 1GB RAM in case of the Lumia 650, which also has only 16GB internal space.

It looks like the Lumia 650 comes with smaller Li-Ion 2000 mAh battery than the Moto G's Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery.

The Moto G4 has a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with auto-focus, dual LED flash while the Lumia 650 comes with only 8-megapixel camera with LED flash. The Moto G4 and the Lumia 650 have exactly similar 5MP lens in front camera.

The Microsoft Lumia 650 comes with only one 16GB option while the Moto G4 offers two different variants with 16 GB and 32GB storage option. Satisfactorily, both comes with an expandable storage option up to 256GB.

The Moto G4 currently runs on Android 6.0 with a planned upgrade to Nougat 7.0 while the Lumia 650 has the beautiful Windows 10 OS in it.

The Rs.12499 price tag for the Moto G4 will continue to fulfil the budget range smartphone requirement while the Lumia 650 is tagged at Rs.13699.

The Moto G4 seems to have an edge over the Lumia 650 in all aspects with a better price also. However the Lumia brand is losing the market everywhere even with its Windows 10 offering.
