Google owned Motorola has recently launched a new smartphone – Moto G. The company had its ups and downs in the Indian market and had closed its operations two years back. Now they seem to be planning to return to India, one of the most lucrative markets for Smartphones, with a phone that has features and specifications that could be perfect and ideal for the Indian consumers. We cannot say for sure the price at which the company plans to sell the phone in India; but it is presumed to be tagged with a mid-range price.


Price Tag

Price has a major role to play, when a consumer selects a product, especially when there are multiple options. You would look for the best possible device with the best features at again the most competitive price. Motorola has played its cards well by offering the best possible features at a very economical price of Rs.11, 000.  Galaxy S Duo 2 that was launched recently is manufactured by the leader in the Indian market Samsung and is very popular. They too seem to have developed the phone keeping the Indian market in mind, and tagged it with a confirmed price of Rs.10, 990.

Micromax, the leading Indian smartphone maker, is coming up with some impressive devices to gain the market share and compete with Samsung. Its Micromax Canvas Turbo A250 is priced at approximately Rs. 17,999. Considering the features, it is no less rich than Sony Xperia SP which is a little costlier with a price tag of Rs. 23,000.
