Moto G offers plenty of bang for your hard earned buck
It goes without saying that the smartphone market is a highly competitive one, and nearly every single day, we see new models being rumored or announced. In fact, it can get pretty difficult trying to keep track of them all, what with a slew of mobile operating systems to think of as well. Motorola, back from the brink of death for a few years already, has just unveiled what they deem to be an exceptional phone at a price that will be difficult to beat in the form of the Moto G.
The Moto G will target price-conscious consumers who find it hard pressed to pony up at least $600 for a high-end smartphone model, as they are left with a couple of difficult choices – firstly, to purchase a cheap smartphone with second rate technology that will not be able to take full advantage of modern apps and experiences such as navigation, video chat and games, while the second option is to purchase “low cost” versions of premium products which rolled out a couple of years ago – which have also hopped aboard the obsolete bandwagon.
With the Moto G, you will find that this smartphone comes with a premium experience for a third of the price of current high-end devices. For starters, it will feature a 4.5” HD display that is edge-to-edge, running on a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, powered by Android 4.3 Jelly Bean as the mobile operating system of choice, not to mention having a guaranteed upgrade to Android 4.4 KitKat sometime at the beginning of next year, alongside a lack of skins that makes it zip along just fine with Google’s bevy of mobile services such as Gmail, YouTube, Google Maps, Chrome and Hangouts.
Heck, it will come with a comfortable curved back as well as 19 customization options (!), where among them include interchangeable Motorola Shells and Flip Shells in seven colors, not to mention Grip Shells in five colors. You would be able to pick up the Moto G for $179 a pop for the 8GB model, and the 16GB model will set you back by $199.
