Ultimate Battle: K3 Note vs Moto G3

Updated

on

Recently Lenovo as well as Motorola, launched two budget phones at attractive price points with some fascinating specifications to win everyone’s heart. On the one side, Lenovo launched Lenovo k3 Note amd on the other side Moto launched the 3rd Generation of Moto G. So today we are going to compare both the devices and give you our thoughts on which one is better and is it worth your money?

Note: In this comparison, we compared the K3 Note with the 16 GB version of the Moto G3 which comes with 2 GB RAM.

Moto G3 vs Lenovo K3 Note

Build & Design

The Moto G3 as well as the Lenovo k3 Note has complete plastic build. The Lenovo K3 note featres a single back shell while the Moto G has 1 frame in beween the back cover and the front digitiser. The back of the lenovo K3 note is a mate finish while the Motp g3 has a lenarly textured back which I really like a lot. The lenovo K3 note does not impresses a lot on the quality, indeed it is a heavy phone and gives good feel while having it on your hand but the things like back cover really disappoint. Both the devices feature the volume lockers and the power button at the right hand side and the 3.5 mm headphone jack at the top but the USB port is found at the bottom in case of the Moto G3 whereas on the top in K3 Note, which is no way a good place for an USB port. The Moto G3 takes features forward facing speakers, whereas the K3 Note has them at the back.

Overall, due to the better texture of the back cover and the forward facing speakers, the Moto G3 takes the lead completely.

Display

Here the Lenovo K3 Note tries copes up with its loss. It has a 5.5 Inch 1080p IPS panel with a pixel density of 401 pixels per inch whereas the Moto G3 is equipped with a 5 Inch 720p IPS panel with a pixel density of only 294 pixels per inch. Although the Moto G3 comes with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection which is not present on the K3 Note, the K3 Note wins here because of its higher pixel density that is resolution.

Performance

The Snapdragon 410, found in the Moto G3, doesn’t even come close to the MediaTek MT6752 used in the K3 Note. Both the devices have 2 GB RAM but the MediaTek MT6752 comes with 8 cores running at 1.7 GHz whereas the Snapdragon 410 comes with only 4, running at a lower clock speed of 1.4 GHz. Therefore there is no comparison between these two devices and clearly the Lenovo K3 Note is the winner.

Camera

Both the devices are similar in terms of the camera they have. Both of them feature a 13 MP shooter at the back with f/2.0 aperture and a 5 MP shooter at the front for taking selfies. Both the cameras support 1080p video recording at 30 fps and both the devices feature dual LED flash. There is not much difference between both the devices in respect of camera and thus I take this as a draw.

OS & UI

Here the things get a little different. The Lenovo K3 Note comes with Lenovo’s Vibe UI which is a heavily skinned version of android whereas the Moto G3 comes with almost pure stock android. K3 Note comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box whereas the Moto G3 runs Android 5.1.1 and it is likely that Moto G3 will be upgraded on 6.0 Marshmallow sooner than the Lenovo K3 note as it is running a near to pure stock android. In case of the UI, the one on the Moto G3 is close to Nexus devices and has an app drawer whereas the Lenovo K3 Note doesn’t have one and thus look more like an iOS device. Vibe UI has more features and is smooth enough but can’t come close to the software updates received by a device with pure stock android.

Conclusion

Overall, both the devices perform well under heavy tasks but surely there is a winner for different factors. If you are one of those people who like a skinned version of Android with some extra features and don’t care about latest operating system, then the Lenovo K3 Note, available on Flipkart at Rs 9,999 is going to be your pick. But if you like stock Android and don’t like the iOS like interface on the Lenovo K3 Note and want faster software updates, you will pretty much like the Motorola Moto G3 at Rs 12,999 for the 2GB RAM edition. If I would have 10k and wanted to buy a phone, i would saved another 3k and would have bought Moto G 3rd Generation instead of the Lenovo k3 Note.

Last updated on July 13th, 2017 at 02:02 pm

Many people tend to skip the tempered glass and think only a proper case is enough. A case only protects the body of the device but not the display which is the most important part of the phone. Its better to use a tempered glass because obviously no one will like to use a phone with shattered display if you unfortunately drop you phone.

Have you recently bought the OnePlus 5 and wondering which tempered glass to get to keep your screen safe from dust and scratches? Lets have a look at the Best Tempered Glass for the OnePlus 5

Best Tempered Glass for the OnePlus 5

1. Original OnePlus 5 3D Tempered Glass

This is the official Tempered Glass from the company itself, and its always recommended to use official stuff for better performance. Being the best tempered glass available on the market obviously itll be a bit costlier.

The glass perfectly contours with the OnePlus 5’s curved edges. Its hard enough and has anti-scratch material which prevents scratches and protects the screen from drop damage.

5. Others

There are a lot more options available online. People mainly buy tempered glass offline which are too cheap but at the same time they are made of cheap plastic which wont last long and will break easily. Though you can get good tempered glass offline from reputed stores and theyll cost almost the same as the online one’s. Spending 30-40grands on a device and messing up the display just because of a cheap tempered glass isnt worth.
