Question [Q] New Moto G or Used Nexus 4?

I found many similar posts but none of them answered my doubts

I'm really confused whether to choose NEW Moto G (Dual-Sim) for $210 or USED Nexus 4 (1 Year Used - Without Scratches) for $230

I know Nexus 4 is the best one in terms of hardware among these. But my question is about battery life

I'd seen many endurance tests showing Moto G with more than twice the battery life as that of Nexus 4

I'm an average mobile user who'll normally do 1.5 hours Web Browsing + 30 minutes on Call + 30 minutes Video + 30 minutes Gaming + 1.5 hours music + 1 hour random usage = 5.5 hours daily usage

As many users reported poor battery life after KitKat update, i'm more confused about it.

So, I request Xda experts & Nexus 4 Users here at Xda to suggest any 1 of these mobile phones

LMK about your Nexus 4's average battery life.

Also LMK whether Moto G (particularly Dual Sim variant) will get future Android Updates or atleast custom ROM from Xda developers?

Any advice related to this question/ choosing mobile are also welcome..

Hello Moderators. If i posted this question in wrong section, please move this to correct section.
