When Moto E was launched, the only choice at the price point INR 7000 was obviously Moto E. but after that companies like Micromax and Lava also launched their devices as well with competitive price and rich features. The Micromax Unite 2 and Lava Iris X1 was a challenge for Moto E, now Xolo also joined the battleship with its new Q series smartphone Lava Q600s. The market of entry level devices is becoming more confusing than ever, so when buying a smartphone put your feature requirement ahead and then choose the smartphone wisely.
On the other hand, the 15K device Xolo Q1200 is also good take on Moto G. The final price of device is still not known yet, but we hope it will be launch in India officially with more competitive price tag. So Xolo Q1200 is a solid competitor of Moto G with some bumped up features.
