  1. Good comparison!
    There are other things in favor of Moto E like Gorilla Glass 3, Water Splash proof screen and Latest Android (4.4) along with guaranteed future update. These features were non existent in sub 10K category phones till now.

  2. qualcomm tried its best to mess up the naming system. snapdragon 200 includes Cortex A5 quadcore, Cortex A7 dualcore as well as quadcore.
    other than Nokia X which is powered by S4 Play (Cortex A5) all others have Snapdragon 200 either powered by dualcore or quadcore as said in the article.
