I am more than happy with moto g 16GB purchased for my wife three days ago. It has KitKat out of the box.

Compared with my S3 side by side. I can't go into technical depths but g looks better in Looks, Display and opens any application faster than s3 and keeps a lot of RAM free.

Comparing with CPU-Z with all applications closed and freeing up RAM, g shows only one core running at 998 mhz and 3 cores stopped with cpu load only 3% but S3 always has four cores fluctuating between 500 to 1000 mhz with cpu load 12 to 20%.

As I was not ready to see my s3 slower, I reinstalled 4.3 ROM from scratch, disabled all useless applications and processes with titanium pro.
Compared again, g still opens applications faster.

Any Gionee M2 user here please give your opinions.

Is Gionee M2 worth purchasing @10k?? Its an urgent requirement for my frnd.

Requirement
Dual Sim,
Normal surfing, Emails & Word/ PDF file viewing
For calls [100 calls may be more than that per day] so powerful battery required.
If not then suggest anything better than M2.
Please no Moto G.

Nokia X will work good for Calls etc.
For Normal Surfing, PDF viewing etc Nokia X is also Good.

But If You want Android with 1GB RAM,
go for Micromax - Canvas Juice A77 or Xolo Series Q1000.


If someone says Gionee M2 is better,
You can go for it also.
If You find Nokia X not worthy.

Thanks but not comfortable with Indo - Chinese brands above 6k. Xolo is OK types but no Micromax. BTW higher MAH battery preferred as 100 + call daily

Nokia X big no no for me[Cortex A5 chip] instead huawei Y511 would be better choice.

Yes,gionee M2 is worth 10k.

Don't discard Nokia because of Chip only.
Build Quality is much better than anyother phone.
If You can wait for a month or 2,
then Nokia XL (768MB RAM) may be right for your use.

Buying android phone with crappy SoC and only 512 mb ram is as good as buying a nokia asha phone.

+1 to this, Nokia's X-Lineup is an epic fail regardless of how the fanboys "bark", Lumia 520/525 are hundred times better option than these jokes in the name of Nokdroids.

Btw fone is for my friend & he wanted a droid with powerful battery.

If I really wanted an nokia then lumia 520 still rocks around 7200-7300

You need to check the built quality of huawei y300 its felt better to me than my lumia 520.

Imo nokia xl the top end forked droid should be not more than 7500 inr.

I strongly feel anyone opting for nokia x should rethink their options. Huawei y511, any of gionee pioneer series or samsung s duos2 are best bet.
There could be many better alternatives to nokia x at current pricing.

There may be many options.
But for a New User of Android who wants a RELIABLE Android Phone,
can never go wrong with Nokia X.


Go for Nokia X without any second thought with reliable service network in India everywhere and Value For Money mobile.
Those who want their mobile to run for 2-3 years or more can go with Nokia X and the complete series.
Nokia X is having 4.1 or 4.2 type Android and You will get upgraded software updates of 25-40MB in installments.
Don't expect KitKat type upgrades.
User friendly and problem solving updates will be there always.
Most of 60% users want best phone, value for money and a brand that have more life.

I have Nokia Mobiles from last 14 years.
Few Nokia basic mobiles are still in working condition from 7-8 years.
Nokia N71 and other basic phones are value for money and Saviour in Emergency for me.


Most of Hardcore Android Fans who want to get latest always can go anywhere else.
They can spend and want more every time a new release comes.


Choice is yours.
Choose Reliability
or
Choose the passion.
Check Yourself.
It is up to You.
We are only guides, not the choosers.
This is your Money and go wisely.



Make & Fix your choice,
Something will always Lack in Technology !


I chose Micromax A77 (1GB RAM) Mobile in November 2013.
because I was not sure about Nokia Android will be released or not.
If I had any hint, I was ready to wait.
I am happy about my decision.
No regrets.

I have more than 4 Micromax phones from last 5 years approx.
I am happy with their performance.
