The design part of both mobiles should get same rating. Xiaomi Redmi 3 has a decent look with some good color combinations. On the other hand, the design of Moto G 3rd Generation is quite same as previous versions and Moto E. Therefore, you won’t get anything new with this mobile when it comes to design. At the same time, the gold version of Xiaomi Redmi 3 looks really awesome. Considering all the facts of looks, you will certainly opt for the Xiaomi.
However, the difference can be found in dimensions as they are different but not a huge.

On the other hand, there is a difference between weight as Xiaomi Redmi 3 weighs 144gm but Moto G 3rd Generation weighs 155gm. However, the main reason why you should opt for Motorola is it is water proof. Moto G is IPX7 certified and you won’t get any problem if you sink this mobile up to 1 meter or 30 minutes in the water.
First thing first. There is not major difference between these two mobiles. Both of them have 5-inch IPS LCS capacitive touchscreen with 16M color density and 720 x 1280 pixels of resolutions. As usual, both of them have a pixel density of 294PPI. However, the main thing is you will get Corning Gorilla Glass 3 in Moto G 3rd Generation. But, there is no such thing in Xiaomi Redmi 3. However, you will get popular MIUI 7 in Redmi 3. But, stock Android is installed in Moto G. This is obviously not a plus point but certainly an interesting thing for stock Android users.
Although, this is too early to tell anything about the performance of Xiaomi Redmi 3, but you can certainly imagine by checking the hardware. In terms of motherboard, Redmi 3 is better than Moto G. Xiaomi Redmi 3 comes with Snapdragon 616 but Moto G 3rd Generation comes with Snapdragon 410.

You can also find a difference between the GPU. You will get Adreno 405 in Redmi 3 but Adreno 306 is included in Moto G.
Talking about the memory and storage, both of them are almost same. Redmi 3 comes with 2GB RAM with 16GB internal storage and microSD card slot to extend it up to 128GB. On the other hand, you will get Moto G 3rd Generation with same RAM and internal storage but it supports up to 32GB external storage. However, Moto G 3rd Generation has another variant that comes with 1GB RAM and 8GB internal storage.
This is where Redmi 3 excels as it comes with massive Li-Ion 4100 mAh battery but the Moto G 3rd Generation has Li-Ion 2470 mAh battery. Obviously, Redmi 3 will provide better battery backup than the other one.
Considering all the facts, this is confirmed that you will have to decide alone before opting for a mobile between these two beasts. Camera and all the other features are same. Nevertheless, you will get better image quality in Moto G 3Rd Generation. On the other hand, other features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth etc. are included in both mobiles.
