Motorola Moto G (2015) review
12 August 2015
Excerpt: The Motorola Moto G has always been one of the best Android phones since its debut, giving you plenty of bang for not that much buck, decent build quality and close-to-stock Android, and now it's been given a third major refresh.
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...
Summary: When we with , we found that the service itself was as advertised (inexpensive and very good), but the asterisk was the handset--the Defy XT, a decidedly midrange smartphone that was the only handset you could use with the service. Worse, the price tag was a mite steep at $249.
Pros: Tremendous value, Doesn't feel low-end, Fast and fluid performance in everyday tasks
Cons: Weak camera features, No expandable storage, Outgunned performance-wise by high-end handsets
Excerpt: Motorola, now under the ownership and management of Lenovo, continues on the high points of the original Moto X by supersizing the devices screen to 5.2-inches and surrounding it by a metal frame, rather than a plastic one.
Motorola Moto G review: high on performance, low on price
5 March 2014
Excerpt: When Puneet Soni (VP, Product Management at Motorola Mobility) revealed the Moto G to a bunch of geeky reporters, he constantly asserted that flagship features on a smartphone doesn’t need a flagship price. With Google guiding the path, Motorola has learnt a lot.
Excerpt: £135 doesn’t typically afford you the smartest of smartphones, but Motorola’s Moto G brings some incredible top line features to the budget Android realm for just that. As a result, this 4.5-inch Jelly Bean beast is one of the best-value handsets we've ever seen.
Conclusion: The Moto G has consistently lived up to every expectation I had of it, and performed like a phone that costs twice its price. It so completely obliterates its natural competition, that anyone wanting an Android smartphone outside of the top echelons, would be crazy not to give it try.
Pros: An absolute bargain at $180 unconnected, Stock Android 4.3 Jelly Bean/Android 4.4 KitKat, Fast, capable processor, 4.5-inch, 720p screen is just about perfect, Excellent battery life
Cons: The camera is basic, A choice of 8GB or 16GB of memory, No removable battery, External speaker has to be cranked up to hear, No 4G LTE capability
Pros: Lovely camera, Smart water resistance, Great performance, Decent screen, I've been full-on charmed by the Moto G camera. It simply outdoes the similarly-specced affordable phone cameras at the price, with far more consistent performance and better image quality. The water resistance is almost as ...
Cons: Bulkier design, Pricer than older Moto Gs, Non-stereo front speaker, I miss the days when we could talk about the Moto G like the bargain of the century. Those days are gone. While this phone is still among the very best, most companies offer similar specs within a similar price range. I wish Mot...
