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. Motorola is trying to move away from the specifications race and trying to do what Apple does the best, binding hardware and software beautifully.
Motorola Moto G review: The smartphone that could change the budget landscape
19 February 2014
Summary: The Moto G retails at Rs 12,499 for the 8GB and Rs 13,999 for the 16GB. This makes it the best, value-for-money offering under Rs 15,000 and quite possibly under Rs 20,000 as well . Sure, there are better spec’d handsets at this price but if given a choice, would you really pick an untested local brand over a seasoned OEM? Impressive specifications are no good if you don’t have regular software and firmware updates to add new features and iron out bugs.
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. The Moto G goes for the same design as its more expensive brother, the Moto X.
Moto G review: an affordable smartphone, done right
26 November 2013
Conclusion: Forgiving the absence of a microSD slot and LTE radio, we commend the Moto G for its bright display, superb all-around performance and versatile camera despite a low megapixel count. At this price, it's a bargain.
Pros: Crisp 720p display, Near-stock version of Android, Impressive performance, Affordably priced
Cons: Up to just 16GB of non-expandable storage, No LTE, Slightly sluggish web browsing
Excerpt: The Motorola Moto G is the answer to our question, "Where is our Moto X ?" Motorola's comeback Android smartphone was a US-only handset, and fans were left waiting on an international launch date for months. But now we've got this, the Moto G, an even better value offering. it takes the best of the Moto X - the design, the smart software - and stuffs it into a package that costs just £135 SIM-free. Is this the bargain it looks on paper?
Pros: From a distance, the Moto G looks identical to the attractive Moto X. Get up close, and it still does. Though it's simply a plastic shell, it's rigid and attractively curved to make it look thinner than its 11.6mm, with a minimal bezel. Best of all, it's customisable too: there are more than 15 different cases you can snap on the back, and we're actually rather taken with the coloured ones we took for a spin, including the bright yellow. Make no mistake, this is a han...
Summary: The Motorola Moto G is the best budget smartphone we've reviewed. In some ways it performs like a phone costing twice as much - the quad-core processor and large HD screen for instance. In some areas it betrays its low-cost origins - in its plasticky appearance and in the lack of a memory card slot and NFC connectivity. But as an overall package, it's the best in its class, delivering a brilliant user experience for the price of a budget smartphone.
Conclusion: We can’t help wondering if via Motorola Google is trying to do with the Moto G at the lower end of the market what it has done with the Nexus 5 at the higher end – offer a superb handset that really gives the competition a hard act to follow. If that’s the strategy, we’d say it has been implemented well.
Summary: Every way you turn nowadays, it’s impossible not to bump into a bleeding-edge smartphone. You know the type - packed to the hilt with quad-core processors, GBs of RAM, megapixels and sky-high ppi counts, there’s never been a better time to be a tech-head. Outside the A-list roster of high-end smartphone celebrities such as the iPhone 5s , Galaxy S4 , Note 3 , LG G2 and HTC One , manufacturers have attempted to roll out cheaper mid-range handsets to tempt gadgeteers on a...
Pros: Very, very affordable, More than fast enough, Fairly vanilla Android and Kit Kat's on the way, Nicely made and fun colour options
