Moto X4 vs Honor 9i Complete Comparison of DUAL CAMERA Phones

Updated on 2017-11-26 by Geetansh Arora

Comparison of Honor 9i and Moto X4

Moto X4 is the latest midrange phone from Motorola priced at 20999 and 22999 for 32GB and 64 variant respectively. Honor 9i was recently launched by Huawei in India as world's first phone with 4 cameras. It has a dual camera on the front and back. You can take portrait mode pictures with depth effect from both sides. Honor 9i also has a large bezel-less display which looks beautiful. 

Design and Display Comparison of Moto X4 and Honor 9i

Design wise both phones look excellent. The Moto X4 is all shiny because of the reflective glass back and Honor 9I looks great because of large bezel-less display on the front. If you like small phones then go for Moto X4 as it is smaller in size because of the 5.2-inch display and if you like large phones then Honor 9i should be your choice. Honor 9i does have a 6-inch display but the overall size of the device is just like any other 5.5-inch phone. 

Camera Comparison

Both phones have dual camera setup on the back and can take sharp images in daylight. Image quality is good in both cases but Moto X4 is little slow in taking pictures. The front camera on the Honor 9i is a dual camera and can take a lot better pictures than Moto X4. So selfie lovers should choose Honor 9i.

Moto X4 is IP68 rated which means it is water and dust resistant. Honor 9i, on the other hand, does not have an IP rating so it's best to keep it away from water.
