      Moto G wins with 1024MB of RAM over to 512MB in the Lumia 630, 720*1280pixels resolution over to 480*854pixels in the Lumia 630, and it also has a flash (LED) compared to no flash in the Lumia 630. Also the 2070mAH battery in Moto G versus 1830mAh on the Lumia 630.

      The only advantage Lumia had over the Moto G is external storage expand-ability upto 128GB for which the scenario would probably favor the Nokia, thanks to the price difference!

      Following specifications for MOTO G and Lumia 630 is almost same -
      System chip Qualcomm - Snapdragon 400
      Processor - Quad core, 1200 MHz,
      Graphics processor - Adreno 305

      MOTO G wins on the hardware war with double System memory - 1024 MB RAM against the 512 MB of Lumia 630. Also, MOTO G has better camera feature with LED and front camera as well which is missing in Lumia. battery has additional juice as well.

      For me, bigger external storage do not give enough points to Lumia 630 to win the war over MOTO G.

      For me, MOTO G wins this war...

      Since most people are looking at the Nokia Lumia 630 as the Moto G competitor, I too would like to jump in with my two cents.
      People prefer a smartphone depending on its OS.
      If for example I want to but an Android smartphone I shall always prefer Moto G and if I am looking for something cheaper I shall go for any regional manufacturer like Karbonn, Lava, or Micromax. The actual question here is what will Windows fans do ? and the answer is they now have more choices for their buck and the choice to buy the first dual-SIM smartphone with the Windows Phone iteration.
