Motorola Moto G
4 October 2014
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
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
Excerpt: The Motorola Moto G is simply the best low-cost Android smartphone available right now. Highlights include a 4.5" HD screen, quad-core processor, large battery and interchangeable back covers.
Conclusion: People will argue that the Nexus 5 is the device to beat in order to win over that reputation for having the most bang for the buck value. Although it does offer its own set of value, the Moto G is actually able to triumph it in another way – one that targets consumers who want nothing other than a...
Pros: $179 contract-free price, Color variety, Simplified Android experience
Cons: Choppy performance, Underwhelming performance from its camera
Pros: Great value, Decent screen, Slick interface, The whole package. Look at what the Moto G offers, look at its price, and then look at the other handsets which cost the same amount. It exceeds its rivals in several key areas, from the well defined 4.5-inch display to its 1.2GHz quad-core processor a...
Cons: Poor camera, Low internal storage, Extra cost for microSD and 4G, It's simple. Motorola must have cut some corners to get the price of the Moto G so low, and the camera is one area which has seen the compromise. The 5MP lens is simply not up to the job and my photos either came out blurry, grainy...
