I am planning to buy a smartphone in around Rs.10000. The major requirement is a good camera. I have zeroed on Samsung Galaxy Core 2, but am being suggested by my friends to get Moto G 1st or 2nd Gen device. Can I get a better comparison between the two? Any other suggestion apart from these two is also welcome.

Moto G and Samsung Galaxy core 2 mainly differ by their price range as Moto G is costlier than Samsung Galaxy Core 2. I've used Moto G and currently I'm using Core 2.

Design and Looks
Samsung Galaxy Core 2 will be the winner in the looks as it has a metallic strip surrounding all around across the width which attracts the every eye. Moto G has a simple design with curved corners and there's no so much work has been done on the design of the phone to make the phone attractive.

Camera
Samsung Galaxy core 2 has a 5 MP primary camera with a 0.3 MP VGA camera in the front whereas Moto G has 8 MP secondary camera and 2 MP primary camera in the front.
According to the specifications and the photo quality Moto G can capture photos more nicely than Core 2.

Display
Samsung Galaxy Core 2 has a 4.5 Inches display having a resolution of 480x800 pixels whereas Moto G has a excellent 5 Inch display with Corning Gorilla Glass 3. The display size of Moto G is greater than Core hence core 2 lags behind Moto G in this comparison. The Corning Gorilla Glass 3 had made Moto G a good choice between the two phone.

Operating System
Samsung Galaxy Core 2 has Android Kikat v4.4 operating system and it's not sure that core 2's operating system will get upgraded to Android Lollipop.

Moto G has Android kitkat v4.4 (Kitkat) and the device will surely get updated to the new Android operating system i.e Android Lollipop.

Both the phone has 1.2 GHz Quad core processor but Moto G has Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 so it has won this comparison also. There's 768 MB RAM provided in Core 2 which will surely make you look at the 1 GB RAM being provided in Moto G.

Memory
Samsung Galaxy core 2 provides its users 4 GB internal memory which can be expanded up to 64 GB using memory card.
Moto G provides it's user a big internal storage of 16 GB which can be expanded up to 32 Gb using a SD Card.

Battery
Samsung Galaxy Core 2 has 2000 mAh battery which is less than 2070 mAh battery of Moto G. Moto G provides good battery backup than Galaxy Core 2.

Overall I'll suggest to buy Moto G to every person who's confused between the two available options because Moto G has some features which are better than the overall features provided in Core 2.
