The first generation Moto G was the comeback device for Motorola as a brand in India. Since then the Moto G series has been the most successful series for the brand, the last generation i.e. the Moto G3 was one of the best device by the company offering IPX7 certification at an affordable price.
Moving on the Samsung’s J series, the J could very well stand for Jealous as these devices offer so much value for money that it makes other smartphone makers and owners of other smartphones feel jealous. As a tech expert, I feel the J series is the real deal for Samsung staying as the market leader in India. Not only the J series offer design language seen in the top end Samsung smartphone but also the features are unique to the series.
I must congratulate Samsung on turning the tables in 2016 with excellent flagship devices in S7 and S7 edge and also the new mid-ranger J series.
