Motorola is back with a bang with Moto G. This device is a complete package and great value for money. Moto G is pegged at a unique price point with very less or almost no contenders. Motorola has promised a KitKat update for all the Moto G phone within a month which will gear up the device and bring a considerable increase in the performance front. Moto G is perfect for people wanting a high end budget phone along with a known brand which can be easily associated with.
Design and Build:
Moto G resembles its elder sibling Moto X when it comes to the form factor and also the design. The phone is neatly sculpted with curvy edges and matt finish. The large front bezel engulfs the screen without any physical buttons. Volume rocker buttons are placed conveniently on the right hand side of the phone. The device is dimensionally perfect as its just 5.1 inch tall and 2.7 inch wide and can be handled easily in a nimble way. The back panel houses the camera unit and the flash along with a speaker grill adjacent to the camera. Motorola logo is actually embossed in a crater. The Build quality is definitely upmarket and the phone doesn't feel cheap by any yardsticks.
Moto G has been born with a 5 Megapixel snapper along with a LED flash. The camera is good for general purpose photography. The images captured are bright but lose out on the contrast and the color front. Pictures are blurred if the subject is dynamic and moves its position. Shutter lag is evident and the pictures are washed out. Moto G packs a 1.3 Megapixel camera that can manage video chats and selfies in an incredible manner. Overall the camera is a let down but we should keep the low price point of this device and throttle down our expectation accordingly.
Moto G has a 4.5 inch screen offering a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. Viewing angles are good and the screen also maintains its visibility level even in bright sunlight. Display offers a great deal of crispiness and clarity. The screen however is not bright and lucid as we usually expect from a High Definition smartphone.
Moto G is propelled by a 1.2 GHz Quad Core processor from Qualcomm. The Quad core processor is definitely a steal at this segment. The processor is coupled with a 1GB of RAM. Moto G can multi task very well however it starts showing some signs of sluggishness after the device is loaded with tons of apps and processes. Moto G lets you play most of the graphic intensive games with a relative ease and that is surely an icing on the cake at this price bracket.
Power On It:
Quad Cores are always known as power sappers but Motorola has optimized Moto G to last for 24 hours of mix usage thanks to its 2070 mAh battery unit. The phone doesn't heat up even after prolonged use. Moto G lets the users enjoy HD videos for 7.2 hrs before craving for the charging cradle. Moto G has an excellent battery unit which will wont let the phone die for a long time. The battery is removable
Moto G is the perfect choice for users looking for a smartphone without burning a hole in their pocket. Moto G strikes a perfect balance between pricing and features. Unique selling point of Moto G is the pricing advantage it commands. Their are hardly any viable choices at this price range. Moto G is definitely a winner when it comes to buying a feature rich smartphone at a lean budget. Motorola is also going a step further by offering swappable;back covers and other accessories exclusively crafted for Moto G.
