Moto G vs. Xperia M
All this week I’ve been providing comparisons of the Motorola Moto G against similar devices from the current entry level and mid ranges. There’s been a little bit of to and fro with pros and cons on either side but one thing remains clear; anyone else getting down to the price of the Moto G has often compromised somewhere and ends up providing a less enticing final product.
This last head to head showcases the Sony Xperia M, currently Sony’s lowest level handset, versions of which have gained a lot of favour in international markets, due to its decent combination of price and specification. According to some industry thinkers it is these international, emerging markets that Motorola / Google may be really targeting with the Moto G, rather than more discerning mature markets (although sales here remain a bonus and an indication of future trends).
The Xperia M is quite a small handset, with a screen of just 4 inches which makes the decent resolution appear sharp. Otherwise, the head to head makes it clear that the Xperia M is effectively matched or outclassed by the Moto G in pretty much every category that matters, including price. If Motorola decide to manufacture a dual SIM version of the Moto G, it could be incredibly enticing for many international markets.
