Price-wise, it is expected to be placed within the sub-15k segment. So, would you rather wait for the Moto G (3rd Generation) to launch, or opt for one among these three?The three smartphones are at a pretty even footing, with the Mi 4i selling at a higher price than the other two, albeit featuring a smaller display size and no expandable storage options.
