If you compile a list of the very best budget devices, the Motorola Moto G series ranks among the very top. In today’s world of smartphones, there are so many really good (value for money) budget devices. The one making waves in Nigeria currently is the Infinix Hot 2 (Android One) phone. We decided to bring this two phones together and compare side by side.

This is a really close one. The base model of the Infinix Hot 2 has a better storage of 16 GB. That aside, the Moto G is marginally better on other fronts. It has 4G LTE, slightly better battery, and faster processor. The Moto G has better camera, has Gorrilla Glass protection, not forgetting that it’s also water resistant.


Can we conclude the higher price is justified? Your thoughts.


  1. Based on specs alone one will be tempted to say the price premium is not justified,but specs sheet is half the story really,having owned the OG Moto g I can guarantee you the User Experience of the two phones will be miles apart and the Moto g is a much better put together overall,also being from a Tier one brand comes with a certain amount of expected premium pricing..
    IF the cash is not an issue I’ll certainly prefer the Moto g to the Infinix Hot..

  2. from a value proposition/bang for buck angle, the Hot 2 is the clear winner. that said, the Moto G is the better device

  3. The Infinix Hot 2 would be a stop gap phone for me. Like Donbenie, having used the original Moto G, I wouldn’t hesitate to buy another one. It’s the only Android phone to date that I’ve used and didn’t hate the experience.

  4. This is a close tie. But value pack,infinix.

    If the build is physically worth the much difference in price, then I wouldn’t mind the extra bucks but judging from what im reading on here, I think the infinix wins for me
