Conclusion:

According to the comparison, Xiaomi Redmi 4 offers the most value for money in terms of specifications offered on the sheet. Redmi 4 packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 along with 2 GB RAM , a better 13 MP rear camera and 5 MP front camera. Then there’s also the fact that the Redmi 4 features a more polished-looking design with a matte-finished metal body.

Indeed, the only area where the Moto C Plus beats the Redmi 4 is when it comes to software. Lenovo seems to be continuing the tradition of delivering smartphones with the latest Android software and with the Moto C Plus, you do get an almost stock version of Android 7.0. With 2 GB RAM, the choice really boils down to what software you prefer.
