Motorola Moto G (2014) vs Nokia Lumia 830 vs Nokia Lumia 730: size and specs comparison

Motorola Moto G (2014) vs Nokia Lumia 830 vs Nokia Lumia 730: size and specs comparison
The new Moto X is not the only new addition to Motorola's portfolio that debuted earlier today - the successor to the wildly-popular Moto G also made an appearance. Just as we showed you, it addresses those aspects of the original Moto G which were normally criticized. Motorola has, fortunately, kept an ear close to the ground and amped up the game of the trooper in the display, camera, and storage departments without changing the pricing. 

The new Moto G shapes up to be yet another bestseller, but how does it stack up against the fresh competition that came out from Microsoft yesterday - the Nokia Lumia 830 and the Lumia 730. Well, the Lumia 830 is not in the same price range, but surprisingly, it comes with specs that are on par with the new Moto G. The Lumia 730 is cheaper and also with similar hardware specs as Motorola's new trooper, but it will be hard to give it a run for its money.

Let's check out how these three fare against each other in terms of specs and size. Which do you think is the clear winner here?
