    The low cost smartphone from Motorola despite the affordable price offers all necessary features of flagship smartphones. Photo and video look good at its 4.5 inch screen with the resolution of 1280 X 720 pixels.

    Being quite capacitive due to quad core processor, the device is not as capable in memory (only 8 or 16Gb options), But instead it brings a huge opportunity of customization through colorful smartphone cases and even creation of device variant via Moto Maker website.

    Motorola knows that one of the main segments buying affordable phones is the younger generation. Therefore the necessity of the latest Android having social networks, a lot of stunning apps and games is obvious. Moreover, while most budget devices offer only one camera, Moto G has two with quite good quality - 5MP rear and 1.3MP front. You can not expect the professional selfies here but the resolution is good enough to conduct a decent Skype call. Among the other advantages the stylish and rugged chassis can be mentioned. It looks catchy as well as, due to the 4.5 inch screen size, fits the hand perfectly increasing the ergonomics. Moto G is one of the better examples of how to own a budget phone and have no regrets.

The Motorola Moto G: Finally a Low Priced Motorola Smartphone

Motorola’s popularity in the Philippines has been waning, mainly because the company has not launched an affordable smartphone with interesting features in the country for a while. But now its latest smartphone, the Moto G, might just be the device to jump start Motorola’s domination of the Philippines smartphones market. The device (formerly called Motorola XT1032) is poised to be the low-cost successor to Motorola’s Moto X. The Moto G has the specifications of a powerful Android smartphone at the fraction of the cost. It has all the features expected of a high end Android smartphone plus some extra features that can only be found in pure Google devices.

Specification and Features list

  • Processor: Qualcomm MSM8226 Snapdragon 400
  • RAM Memory: 1GB
  • Storage: 8GB/16GB

Pure Google device

Low Priced Device with High End Specifications

The Google and Motorola device Moto G comes at a very low price but it definitely does not feel, look nor function like a cheap phone. The new smartphone’s body feels solid with a build quality similar to high end Android phones. The product’s back panel has a matte finish giving the device a grippy feeling. The Moto G runs Android OS 4.3 Jelly Bean but received a KitKat upgrade in 2014. The smartphone has 4.5 inch 1280 X 720 display made from Gorilla Glass (don’t mind it not being a full HD as the screen size saturates the pixels making it look HD!), all day quad core speed thanks to its 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 8GB and 16GB of internal storage, 5MP main camera, 1.3MP front facing camera, and a 2070mAh battery.

More Fun with Customization

The new Motorola Moto G is a budget version of the Moto X, but being budget does not mean that it will not have the X’s much loved customization option. Being a Google company, the Motorola G offers the full experience of a pure Google ecosystem, with all its innovative software abilities and countless ways to create distinctive smartphone variants through the Moto Maker website. The Moto G has a simple yet aggressive design reminiscent of the Kevlar weave-coated (and Motorola bestsellers) Razr phones.

Competing with Samsung

As an alternative to samsung Galaxy series, Moto G review demonstrates that Motorola device does not loses too much especially when taking the price into account: Moto G os an low cost smartphone, Galaxy 4 is a middle class one. Better in capacity and features, Samsung surely worse in customization and fun. Thus if you search for smartphone at affordable price with a wide range of customization, love Google and don’t want to be similar with many people around, Moto G is a good and reasonable choice.
