good phone and a good subtitude for moto g

rocessing: 1.4 GHz Qualcomm snapdragon processor is definitely an advantage over the mediatek processors. It is fast, stable and durable. Adreno 305 GPU gives good support to the processor as gaming is smooth.
Camera: First thing you will notice is the app UI is different, very similar to nexus 4. I find it a little annoying but may be that's because I am used to vanilla UI. The performance in well lit condition is awesome; details are surprisingly good with nice colour saturation. The camera performance falters as light gets low. As compared to the phones in this price range the camera is superb. Front camera is 2 MP fixed focus and is decent for video calls. Flash performance is nice too.
UI: It has stock android 4.3 with full OpenGL 3.0 support. I think it is awesome as the transition animations feels refreshing and lightening fast, that to butter smooth. Some amount of custom UI tweaking from Xolo is there but it is icing on the cake and it is not annoying like some other phones (eg. Gionee, Intex etc.)
Storage and telephony: Device comes with 8GB in built memory, with 5.4 GB available for user. The apps can be installed on the internal memory only, but 5.4 GB is quite sufficient for the apps, I think. Other media files like movies, audio, pictures etc can be saved on external memory card. Voice calling is superb with good noise cancellation. There is no dropping of calls or signals until now. Speaker is loud enough to hear in moderately noisy environment.
Cons: The screen doesn't have Gorilla glass 3 protection (Gorilla 1 and 2 are not good enough as they cant protect your screen from breaking). Phone seems to be delicate although build quality is good. Battery is standard 2000 mAh but still does not satisfies
Pros: You get magnetic sensor for full navigation support. Battery guru app is included which help to extend the battery life upto 30-36 hrs with moderate usage with 3G and ~4hrs of WiFi.
Verdict: I think it is a good and could be a good subtitude for moto g too if ur willing to buy it but i still would prefer moto g in this price
