    moto e no doubt is a better phone as over all performance. But asus zenfone 4 has done a grat job too. Intel atom processor with hyper-threading is better processor. More over zenfone 4 has a better camera with front facing camera. It supports OTG which is big advantage and has more internal storage than moto e. Surprisingly its runs 1080p videos flawlessly and heavy games with high graphic settings. Zenfone is available with just Rs 5999/-. But its battery back up is not very good with 12 hours of back up with moderate use plus after sales service is not that wide spread with zenfone 4 which in my point of view is a great disadvantage.
