Motorola Moto G2 Smartphone Review
5 days ago
Summary: Motorola Moto G2 Smartphone is a simple smartphone produced by Motorola with the Android OS and replaceable covers. The design of the device is pleasant with front facing speakers, two SIM cards and a very successful update and it is therefore a good choice if you prefer a simple and functional smartphone.
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 that you can use two SIM cards at the same time.
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 Full HD video recordings would be nice as well. The next generation should also have a faster SoC.
Motorola Moto G (2014) review: bigger, better, and just as affordable
29 October 2014
Conclusion: In the end, the question is, did Motorola go too light on the improvements to this year’s Moto G? Not at all. It’s just as much of a no-brainer as it ever was, even if Motorola only made a few changes to the hardware. We can think of at least two reasons we’re completely okay with that. One, Motorola got it right the first time by offering a whole lot of value for a very small price – just a fraction of what other, comparable smartphones were.
Pros: Solid phone for an irresistible price, Average camera experience, Solid design and construction, Easily customizable hardware via swappable backplates
Cons: The Moto G is currently available for purchase through Motorola directly and through third-party retailers, and it comes in both US GSM and Global GSM variations, the only differences being band support. It also comes in two color options, either white or black, and with two storage capacity options: 8 or 16GB.
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. Quite how Motorola's making a profit on this, we're not sure, but that shouldn't matter to anyone except Google. This is quite simply the best phone Motorola has made in a decade.
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 on a top end iPhone, phablet or camera phone, this is the only handset on any platform worth considering.
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 become Motorola’s best-selling smartphone of all time.
Summary: Priced at Rs 12999 for the 16GB variant, Motorola has reduced the pricing of the phone even with the upgrades to display, camera and also inclusion of microSD card slot. But having said that things have changed since the first generation Moto G was launched last year, now we have various devices in the same or lower price point offering better specs like the ones from Xiaomi and ASUS.
