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...
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
Moto G review (2014): still the best budget smartphone
24 May 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.
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...
Summary: The catchline for the New Moto G 2014 smartphone really does ring true and at just £149 off-contract or with crazy cheap line rentals there should be little to hold you back if your budget is tight.
