Moto G 3

Over the years Motorola phones have evolved, but did the specifications also improve at the same pace?

Motorola is the definition of what an affordable smartphone should be like. The successor always came up with a better version of its predecessor with the new enhanced advancements. As the technology improved, the hardware and specifications got better. Initially, Motorola’s Moto G was lost in the smartphone crowd but now armed with an improved set of specifications, the phones are worth buying.

The screen is mounted on metal-like plastic and the back has a removable cover that holds the camera. It is simply designed and doesn’t slip off your hands. Both the design and build quality has noticeably improved when compared to last year’s model. The waterproof feature is decent, but its thickness is a bit chunky. The Moto G 3rd generation incorporates a 5-inch screen having a resolution of 720p HD with 294 pixels per inch density.

It performs well in low light and is considerably better than other smartphones falling in the same range. An exclusive selfie phone with 5 MP front facing camera clicks crystal clear shots. However, the phone lacks details at full resolution.


Moto G 3rd generation is by far the best Motorola phone yet. It has excellent build quality, decent camera, great performance, noticeable specifications and not to forget the reasonable price. It feels amazing in hand and the battery life is also quite powerful. Not many Android phones incorporate so many features in a 5 inch screen size, meaning the phablet is arguably one of the best.
