There are some fields where Cool 1 is better and at some fields Moto M is better. If we talk about display, overall software experience and regular updates then Moto M seems to be better but if we talk about camera, battery, overall performance and price then Cool 1 is definitely better. So both are good and bad in some fields and we can’t conclude a clear winner. However if we compare both considering the price then the Cool 1 definitely seems to be more value for money as compared to Moto M.

Although paying few extra bucks for Moto M considering the better brand value and it will get regular software updates is also worth the higher price. However it all comes down to your personal choice and preferences.
