Motorola Moto G 4G (2015) review
12 April 2015
Summary: Motorola has improved on last year's edition with the new Moto G 4G, and its £159 still puts it in budget territory for first-time smartphone buyers and newcomers. Its 4G powers will keep you up to date for longer, but we wish its processor was a bit faster, as it's starting to show its age.
Summary: Concerning the variants Motorola goes out on a limb by releasing a smartphone aimed especially at Europe for the first time. The adaptability of the - not yet released in Europe - however will not be achieved.
Pros: Look and feel, Workmanship, Individualization (replacement covers and magnetic covers), Price
Summary: The first-generation Moto G was an excellent smartphone for its price. On this second generation, Motorola solved its main problems: the mediocre camera and the lack of support for memory cards.
The bigger screen is also an improvement, obviously if you like bigger screens.
Excerpt: If $350 is the new $650, then $200 is the new $350. That’s the best way I can prepare you for the Moto G review you are about to read. Just last year, it seemed crazy that a device like the Nexus 4 could come in at only $349, completely unlocked and off-contract. Google and ...
Summary: Second generation. In 2013 the Motorola Moto G was an inexpensive smartphone and a real competitor for mainstream smartphones with its comprehensive features. Now there is a successor, and we want to know if the Moto G2 can impress us as well. Let us find out in our in-depth review.
Pros: Grippy case, Replaceable back cover, Dual-SIM, Decent stereo speakers, Decent cameras, Good battery runtimes, Display with quite accurate colors, Good WLAN signal, Suited for gaming, Spill-water resistant, FM radio, That the cameras take decent pictures, the case is comfortable in the hands and t...
Cons: Average performance, Battery not removable, Case sensitive to pressure, Tricky to remove the back cover, Limited internal storage, No LTE, GPS slow and sometimes inaccurate, Only 720p videos, No power adaptor included, Low display brightness, Motorola could have increased the battery capacity and...
Summary: We've seen plenty of budget smartphones over the years, but none have ever delivered on the promise of a great experience at a low cost like the Moto G has. Not only are its specs fast, its screen sharp and its software (almost) bang up to date, it actually looks the part too.
Summary: Once again, Motorola astounds us with a smartphone that’s such good value it’s not at all clear how the company can be making money from it. But hey, if Motorola wants to live off vapours, that’s fine by us: forget cheap Samsungs, Windows Phones or budget HTCs, if you’re not going to splash the cash...
Moto G review (2014): still the best budget smartphone
3 October 2014
Conclusion: Motorola's wallet-friendly formula hasn't changed much since last year's Moto G, but that's OK -- the company changed just enough to make the 2014 version one of the best budget smartphones out there.
Pros: Camera is much better than the original's, Near-stock Android 4.4.4 is a treat, Feels snappy despite aging internals, Inexpensive
Cons: No LTE, Screen isn't as crisp as last year's model
Excerpt: It seems like not all that long ago I was reviewing the first-generation Moto G , a fantastic Android smartphone that cost just $179 unlocked and outright. It was Motorola’s first major push into the entry-level market under the guidance of Google, and it was a successful one: the Moto G went on to...
