The Nokia Lumia 635 is a great budget device, but how does its speaker compare to that of the Moto G (2014)? I have an impartial video below showing the two in the same testing scenarios. My personal opinion is that while the Nokia Lumia 635 is much louder than the Moto G (2014), it is not more enjoyable. The Moto G (2014) has a much wider range and overall sounds better. It also has stereo speakers which make it much more immersive as compared to the Lumia which is rear firing. The Lumia does not sound bad, and it is actually surprisingly good, it is just a bit lacking in terms of being able to reach the deep end. Their audio output quality and power meanwhile are roughly the same with the Moto G (2014) being slightly warmer when played on my speakers. Overall they are both decent but the Moto G (2014) isn’t loud enough and the Nokia Lumia 635 isn’t full enough.
Here is the video comparison:
I have made an in depth video review and I will list the key points under it:
- All Day Battery
- Great Screen
- Great Size
- Very Good Camera at Night (No Noise)
- Surprisingly Good Photos For A Budget Device
- Stereo Speaker Configuration
- Great Call Quality
- Micro SD Card Slot
- Speakers are weak
- Audio Output is weak
- Camera Can’t Focus Close Objects Well
- Display Contrast isn’t Great
- Buttons Feel Cheap
- Feels A Bit Fat Sometimes
I test and compare the stereo speakers and audio out of the Moto G (2014) to the Moto X (2013) and the OnePlus One.
The speakers aren’t that loud and don’t sound the best, but in a stereo configuration they do just fine. The audio out is good quality but doesn’t have much output power.
Speaker Quality: OnePlus One > Moto X > Moto G
Speaker Loudness: OnePlus One > Moto X > Moto G
Audio Out Quality: OnePlus One > Moto X > Moto G
Audio Out Loudness: OnePlus One > Moto X > Moto G
Immersive Ability: Moto G > OnePlus One > Moto X
