The Budget Smartphone Moto G

It’s no news how Moto G took everyone by surprise when it was first introduced as the perfect budget cellphone. With a small price tag of under $200 and off-contract availability, it was indeed easy for people to mellow down their expectations of the device and not anticipate it to be the quickest or the smartest of the lot. But the Moto G was a surprise. It was one of those gadgets that ended up being more than simply satisfactory. Both the price as well as performance of the Moto G has been one of the best in the industry and it has rocketed to the top of the list as one of the best “cheap” smart phones one could own.

So here we are a year later, presenting the new Moto G, which isn’t much of a game changer and we pause here to ask, does it really have to be one? What we actually need to figure out is if this year’s model has met the standards set by its predecessor and is superior in any way? For what we know, the new Moto G flaunts a camera that is undoubtedly better than the original one. The Android 4.4.4 interface is a treat and will be liked by one and all. The device also feels crisp in hand despite the aging internals. And let’s face it, it is pretty darn inexpensive. A smartphone for the same price is not available anywhere with similar performance standards. While there are numerous pros to this new model, it is not without a few cons. The device has no LTE support. Also, the screen of this model isn’t very crisp as compared to the previous year’s model.

Moto G looks much like last year’s batch of Motorola devices with only a few noteworthy differences. The phone does have a more expansive, 5-inch 720p display and barely has any edges on the left and right. Also, a shiny pair of front-facing speakers above and below the screen help the Moto G impersonate the Moto E quite convincingly. On top, the tiny notification light glows the moment someone sends across an email or texts on your Facebook wall. All in all, that is what the device has to offer in terms of the visual appeal. However, the good news is that Motorola’s wallet-friendly strategy hasn’t changed a lot since the previous year’s release of Moto G, and that works pretty well for all of us!

Motorola Moto G: Making Mobile Experience Better

Motorola Moto G: Making Mobile Experience Better

Motorola has kicked off its global smartphone revival with its surprise package Moto G handset that has been so attractively priced. The phone is a mid-range handset with great features and a delightfully low-end price tag.

When a low-priced handset appears with such good features, the first that takes hold of buyers’ minds is skepticism as they wonder whether the phone will do well or not in practice. But Moto G is different. On paper, it looks like an amazing handset for the price, but it also lives up to the invoice in reality. It’s turning the budget end phone market on it’s top because the Moto G contains features available in other handsets that are priced at double its cost.

So what is it about the Moto G? Well, it exceeds its competitors in several major areas, from the big 4.5-inch display to the 1.2GHz quad-core processor as well as the Android 4.4 KitKat update, all packed into a case that is similar to the Nexus 4. Given the price tag, one could not have asked for more in that phone.

The latest model is the Moto G with a 4G variant, and it also comes with a microSD slot. Although it might not have the power or precision of its smartphone competitors, the Moto G still hails from a great brand name and is positioned among good smart phones in the market.

So all in all, Motorola is a great gadget to own with nice features and a nice price too. Its camera is one area which has gone through compromise, but that can be taken with a grain of salt. Motorola may not have had the return we would have predicted –because there’s no flagship phone stuffed full of the latest technology and specs but what the now Google-owned company has done is even better. The Moto G is a top notch, low cost smartphone and we wholeheartedly recommend this as the best budget smart phone offered so far.
