Default S4 mini i9105 > Moto E or Moto G 4G?

Trying to save some money. Would I lose much performance going to the Moto G 4G or Moto E?

No, and you won't have to put up with Samsung bloat any longer.

i would say both of them are better than the s4 mini because of Samsung bloatware, maybe not in games and stuff but you wont be buying a Moto G or a S4 Mini if you are going to play games anyway

Not to mention the Moto G has an HD screen compared to the QHD (960p) of the s4 Mini, if you are into that kind of stuff
1. Moto G: Stock; Faux Kernel 009_r3; Xposed + Gravity Box
2. Moto G: Paranoid Android; RenderKernel r17
Waiting for the next Nexus tablet

You wouldn't lose any performance switching but get the moto g 4g, I have the previous version and its really good, better screen and price,

You would lose out on the dual band wifi, camera, I was thinking about swapping it for my nexus4 for daily use due to the longer battery life.

Snapdragon quad core processer is much better then krait dual core, quad core is latest and fastest, moto phones are worth every penny. Moto g, trusted as well as tested, go for it, still best in the market...

Isn't the quad core in the Moto G using slower cores (lower DMIPS) than the Dual Krait cores in the S4 Mini 4G (higher DMIPS)?

Krait has 3.3 DMIPS/MHz, how about the cores in the Moto G?

Looking at some benchmarks it seems the Moto G quad core is about as fast as the S4 Mini Dual Krait Cores.

I've used both s4 mini and the Moto G. The s4 mini is not as snappy as the Moto G and the performance along with the Samsung bloatware of the s4 mini is not up to the mark. Buying a Moto G or a Moto E will save you money and give you better performance and software as well as quick updates.
