E3 Power is powered by MediaTek MT 6735 processor and 2 GB RAM. The internal storage gets 16 GB of space, expandable using MicroSD on a dedicated slot. This is one of Moto E3 Power advantages as users do not need to choose between SIM 2 or memory card.
Xiaomi equips Redmi 3S Prime with Snapdragon 430 and 3GB RAM. It offers 32GB of internal storage, expandable, using SIM 2 slot.
Users who prefer a pure Android experience, Moto E3 Power offers 'unmodified' Android Marshmallow OS out of the box. Redmi 3S Prime tops its Marshmallow OS with MIUI 8 - which could be annoying for some to see bloatware.
