Default S3? Anyone coming from an s3?

What do people think of the Moto g that are coming from a galaxy s3?
(my s3 is the dual core, Canadian version)

I'm not sure whether to give my mom my s3, or buy her a brand new Moto g.

I had the s3 and I like my g better than the s3.

Battery life is so much better on the moto g. It blows the s3 away! Only downside is the non removable battery but with the great battery life I've been getting I don't mind it. Moto g also runs a whole lot better than the s3 mainly due to being stock android.

This is from me using the dual core us model s3(with LTE) I don't know about the quad core model.

I have an S3. My wife has got the Moto G. In my opinion there is a lot less difference than there ought to be considering the price differential. If my S3 broke I would probably buy a Moto because I couldn't justify paying a lot more to get only a little extra. I would miss the larger screen but very little else and even then the difference isn't enough to be a dealbreaker IMO. The only other things that I can see might be a dealbreaker to some is the lack of expandable memory and non replaceable battery.

Impressive that this phone can go toe-to-toe (specs and user experience at least) with a phonr that unlocked can costa you more than 300 dollars, while the moto g goes for 200 dollar...
