Motorola Moto G (2014) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
2 weeks ago
  • Summary: The Motorola Moto G ($180 unlocked) offers budget specs for a budget price, but the experience doesn't feel cheap. The handset's comfy, customizable design has shades of the more premium Moto X ($99 on-contract), and games and movies played wonderfully on the phone's 5-inch, 1280 x 720 display.
  • Pros: Comfy, customizable design, Crisp 5-inch display, Clean KitKat build with useful Moto apps
  • Cons: No 4G LTE support, Camera struggles in low light

Brilliant budget Moto G is better with 4G LTE, but pricier

CNET
27 June 2014
  • Summary: Although the Motorola Moto G with 4G LTE is a bit pricier than its 3G-only sibling, it still has one of the best displays in the budget arena, its processor makes operation enjoyably smooth and its rounded, compact body is both comfortable and attractive. If you're after an affordable all-round entrance into the high speeds of 4G, you've come to the right place.
  • Pros: The Motorola Moto G has one of the best screens you can get for the price, plenty of power for the everyday essentials, an easy to use, near-stock version of Android KitKat and the addition of 4G LTE and expandable storage are extremely welcome.
  • Cons: The camera isn't up to anything more than the odd snap in good lighting, and the addition of 4G LTE means its once "unbelievable bargain" price is now only "good value".

Motorola Moto G Review

TechSpot
5 February 2014
  • Conclusion: The Moto G is a budget Android smartphone done right, finding success in a number of levels starting with suitable performance across the OS. The Snapdragon 400 SoC is surprisingly powerful, and when combined with a skin-free Android build, it was able to deliver a smooth user experience. Even relatively high-end 3D gaming is possible on the Moto G, adding to the handset’s versatility.

The price you want, but not the power you crave

CNET
29 January 2014
  • Summary: You can't beat the price of the Moto G, but the more expensive and more powerful Nexus 5 remains your shrewdest unlocked Android option.
  • Pros: The Motorola Moto G is extremely affordable, unlocked, and runs Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The phone is compact and has premium build quality that belies its low price. The Moto G’s speakers pack lots of volume.
  • Cons: The processor is slow, and the phone comes with a maximum of 16GB of storage and no LTE. The phone’s screen is dim and lacks contrast and vivid colors. The Moto G’s camera takes blurry photos without much detail.

Motorola Moto G review: how good can a $179 smartphone be?

theverge.com
7 January 2014
  • Summary: The Moto X represented a sizable step forward for Motorola. A comfortable, fresh, customizable design married with tasteful and useful software features, it’s the polar opposite of the aggressively styled and skinned Droids Motorola and Verizon have produced. Now, Motorola is back with the Moto G, a budget smartphone that aims to bring the best things about the Moto X to customers that don't want or can't afford a midrange smartphone.
  • Pros: Aspirational design, Excellent performance, Incredible value
  • Cons: Questionable build quality, Poor camera, Low storage

Review Motorola Moto G Smartphone

Notebookcheck
3 January 2014
  • Summary: The people's smartphone. Google dubs its latest highlight "Moto G" that is sold by the subsidiary Motorola. The smartphone fuses high-performance hardware with a reasonable price. We checked whether this strategy adds up.
  • Pros: Price, Bright screen, Battery runtime, Robust, Very powerful hardware, Exchangeable back cover, The Moto G's power is so high that it gives the performance of considerably better equipped contenders a hard time.
  • Cons: Non-expandable storage, Non-removable battery, The smartphone barely shows any weaknesses, and is well-equipped considering the purchase price.

Moto G review: raising the bar for affordable Android smartphones

pocketnow.com
12 December 2013
  • Conclusion: If you look at the Moto G in a vacuum, it’s not a bad phone, nor is it a compelling phone. Ignoring price, it would be yet another one of the countless low-end smartphones without a purpose. But when you consider the entire package – the hardware, the specifications, performance, user experience, and the price – the Moto G is a bargain.
  • Pros: Extremely affordable,  Great display,  Decent battery life,  A mostly stock Android experience,  Easily customizable hardware via additional backplates
  • Cons: Above all, this is the high point of this review and this device. Sans contract, the Moto G retails for just $179 for the 8GB model and $199 for the 16GB variant. That’s roughly one-third the full retail price of a standard flagship model, or approximately the price of a subsidized flagship with a two-year agreement.
