Motorola Moto E was launched last month and it has really brought in some serious competition for other smartphone manufacturers. In India Micromax, Lava and Xolo specifically came out with devices like Micromax Unite 2, Lava Iris X1 and Xolo Q600s respectively. To help you guys figure out which device out of these four is best for you we came out with Motorola Moto E Vs Micromax Unite 2 A106 Comparison and Lava Iris X1 Vs Moto E comparison early this month. We hope you liked these comparisons and they might have helped you to choose a better device.
Xolo Q600s has been dubbed as another “Moto E killer” with its qHD display and a quad-core processor. We were receiving quite a few requests from our esteemed readers to compare Moto E with Xolo Q600s the way we did for Micromax Unite 2 and Lava Iris X1. So today we are here to do the same. Let us see which of the these two devices fits your bill.
Built and Design:
Xolo Q600s’s dimensions are 136.50 x 68.70 x 7.90 and it weighs 115 grams, on the other hand Moto E’s dimensions are 124.8 x 64.8 x 12.3 mm and it weights 140 grams. So Moto E is negligibly heavier and somewhat thicker, but the curved back is one of the advantage coupled with rounded edges Moto E is bound to feel a lot better in hand.
Build quality of Moto E is much better with better plastic. Moto E is much better at durability as compared to Xolo Q600s, as has been the case with Moto G as well as Moto X. If we talk of design then Moto E looks better with its curved back and rounded edges while Xolo Q600s fails to impress us in this department.
Xolo Q600s sports a 4.5 inch quarter HD or qHD IPS display with a resolution of 960×540 pixels. While Moto E sports a 4.3 inch quarter HD or qHD IPS display with a resolution of 960×540 pixels. Although the resolution of both the displays is same, but the smaller display packs same number of pixels more tightly in case of Moto E. Thus Moto E delivers a higher pixel density of 256 ppi. Xolo Q600s has OGS display which makes it slim, while Gorilla Glass 3 provides scratch resistance to Moto E and is seldom found in budget smartphones.
Xolo Q600s is powered by a Broadcom quad-core processor clocked a 1.2 GHz coupled with 1 GB of RAM. Where as Moto E is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 chipset, with Cortex A7 dual core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz.
On paper a quad core processor looks much more promising then a dual core processor, but we have all seen what a dual core processor is capable of on Moto X. On top of that Motorola has successfully optimized its hardware with software, which is the key for a smooth smartphone experience. Add to that Qualcomm chipsets are always better then Broadcom or say MediaTek.
To sum up Motorola has claimed that Moto E is faster than Samsung Galaxy S4 in variety of tasks such as opening picture gallery, making a call, sending a text etc. All these tasks are what we do most of the times. If specs attract you more go for Xolo Q600s but if you need smooth day to day experience on a smartphone then Moto E should be your choice.
Both the devices have the latest Android 4.4.2 Kitkat OS on board. But recently Motorola has rolled out bug fixes in the form of Kitkat update 4.4.3 in U.S. and will be further rolled out across world. On top of that you will always get timely android update on Moto E. But same cannot be said about Xolo Q600s.
This an area where Xolo Q600s is having somewhat edge over Moto E with a front facing VGA camera and a 5 megapixel auto focus rear camera with LED support. Where as in case of Moto E it has a fixed focus 5 MP rear camera without flash and does not have any front facing camera.
Xolo Q600s is equipped with a 2,000 mAh battery, while Moto E has a 1,980 mAh battery. More efficient processor coupled with a smaller display means Moto E can be used longer without a charge as compared to Xolo Q600s.

- AnTuTu (higher is better): 11401
- Quadrant Standard Edition (higher is better): 3452
- Nenamark2 (higher is better): 47.5 fps
- AnTuTu (higher is better): 12455
- Quadrant Standard Edition (higher is better): 5296
- Nenamark2 (higher is better): 49.5 fps
So as you can see above Moto E has beaten Xolo Q600s in all the standard benchmark scores.
Our Take: If you want a real smartphone which delivers real performance then look no further and buy Moto E. You should go for Xolo Q600s only if you want a front facing camera and a bigger display but content with lower resolution. Overall the choice is yours as both the handsets deliver excellent value for money.
