Xolo Q1100 Vs. Moto G: Which handset is better?

Xolo-Q1100-vs-Motorola-Moto-G India

The Xolo Q1100 and the Moto G were launched within three days of each other and both are priced under INR 15,000 and hence it is noteworthy comparing the two to see which is better. The Xolo Q1100 has a lot to offer. It runs on the v4.3 Jelly Bean Android OS. It was released as a venture of the new company taking on the big bosses of the phone market. The Moto G, on the other hand, is one of the first phones to be launched by Motorola after being bought by Google and it certainly looks promising.

Design And Display

The body of the Xolo Q1100 feels polished and cut out at the edges. The phone feels good in the hands and has a brilliant touch. It has a large 5-inch display that comes with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels. The Moto G comes with a 4.5-inch screen and a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and has a 329 ppi pixel density. Its display stretches to all four corners of the phone. Watch, read, browse and game on a big and more brilliant display. It weighs 143g and hence has a very pleasing and well balanced presence in the hand without being too overbearing. Also, although it is 11.6 mm thick in the middle, it feels a lot thinner as it has tapered edges.


The Xolo Q1100 is powered by a beastly 1.4 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU along with 1 GB of RAM that allows seamless brilliance while operating the phone. Moreover, it has an 8 GB internal memory which is expandable up to 32 GB with an external SD card. The OpenGL ES 3.0 allows the phone to run even the highest quality graphic games. The Moto G, on the other hand, is equipped with a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor and 1GB of RAM. This is impressive as it offers pretty much the same specs as on some other high-end models. It also comes with an internal memory of 16 GB expandable up to 32 GB.

Battery Life

The makers claim that the Q1100 has a battery back-up of up to 600 hrs and 430 hours on stand-by, and 24 hours and 12 hours of talk time on 2G and 3G, respectively. The Moto G, similarly, has a non removable 2070 mAh battery with a talk time of upto 24 hours.


The major difference between the two phones is the camera and in this context at least, the Xolo appears to be the winner. It has an 8 MP camera with auto focus, LED flash light and a host of features like geo-tagging, panorama, face detection and touch focus. It is capable of recording HD videos of 1080 pixels at 30 fps. It also has a 2 MP secondary camera. The Moto G, sadly, disappoints in this aspect. On the rear of the handset, there is a 5MP camera and single LED flash, while on the front, you get a 1.3 MP shooter.

While it features the normal auto focus and such features, none of them actually seem to work efficiently. Pictures taken from this phone are often disoriented and out of focus. To get a phone at this price, a cut has to be made somewhere and Google decided to make it in the camera segment.


The Xolo Q1100 also has some unique features in it. It comes with the Battery Guru app that studies your usage and conserves as much battery life as possible. It enables you to get a much higher battery life than contemporary models. It is also ultra thin at just 8.3 mm in thickness. The Moto G has a water resistant coating; something we do not see in other phones of this range, which means you'll be able to whip it out in the rain without fear of a short circuit.
