Motorola returned to India with its powerful mid range Smart phone – Moto G with a bang. The exclusive seller of the device in India is Flipkart, which has run out of stock due to the high demand of the device. Flipkart is having difficulty in meeting the demand of this device in India and many of the Moto G Smart phone lovers are disappointed due to lack of stock and they have to wait for another couple of weeks to order this device. (Check status).
If you can’t wait till then, we would recommend you few Smartphones from the market which are good enough to compete with the Moto G but not better than it. This is just in-case if you are in a hurry to get a new device but if you want only Moto G or can wait a bit longer, Flipkart will provide you the device in few days and for people eager to buy a new device, here are 4 devices we would like to suggest and all there are running on Android Jelly Bean Operating System and Moto G will be running on KitKat.
We aren’t arguing that these smartphones are any better than the Moto G, but sometimes there are reasons why you would opt to go for something other than the one from Motorola, and that’s where these phones come into the scene.
