Motorola has recently launched premium quality handsets at reasonable prices. This has provided the potential buyers with more options to choose among an array of handsets.

Comparing the design of Moto G to that of a Moto X2 handset, both bear similar looks. The slightly curved rear sheet of the Moto G handset offers the user with excellent grip and smooth handling.

As a result, the resolution is also expected to be higher at 1080 x 1920 pixels. Regardless, the pixel density is not expected to have undergone much enhancement as compared to the Moto G handset.
Processor and Memory
The Moto G offers a great smartphone experience to the user. The handset comprises of a Snapdragon 400 chipset from Qualcomm, coupled with a quad core processor, clocked at 1.2GHz speed. The Adreno-305 graphic processor ensures smooth working of the handset. However, a decent RAM of 1GB backs up the CPU and GPU combination.
In the processor department also, the Moto X2 edges past the Moto G handset. Despite the Moto G coming equipped with a powerful spec sheet, the Moto X2 is expected to beat its predecessor easily. The powerful Snapdragon 800 chipset from Qualcomm, coupled with a quad core processor is expected to power the Moto X2 handset. The four cores of the processor are expected to run at a decent speed of 2.3GHz. In addition, the 2GB of RAM would ensure lag free functioning of the handset.
However, the Moto G and the Moto X2 run on the latest Android 4.4 KitKat. Regardless, the Moto X2 is expected do better with the Android KitKat operating system.
With respect to memory, the Moto G offers the user with two internal memory variants of 8GB and 16GB. However, there is no option for memory expansion in the Moto G handset. On the other hand, the Moto X2 is expected to come equipped with an internal memory variant of 32GB. However, the handset comes with an external microSD card slot for memory expansion up to 128GB.
The Moto G features a 5MP primary camera and a 2MP user-facing camera. On the other hand, the Moto X2 is expected to feature a massive 12MP primary camera along with a 5MP user-facing camera.
Both the handsets offer decent smartphone experience at a reasonable price. However, ignoring the cost, the Moto X2 would be a superior and advanced option as compared to the Moto G smartphone.
