Moto G review (2015): Motorola wins the 'best cheap phone' crown, again

 

Oh, how far we've come. Smartphone makers are really trying to nail the "high-quality, low-cost" formula this year, and they're working up ways to sell straight to consumers too. Even with all that new competition, the Motorola Moto G's blend of...

Fast, fluid performance ; Camera is a big leap over last year's model ; Finally has US LTE support ; That price!

Camera is weak in low light ; Notification light is gone ; Base model only has 1GB of RAM

Last year, I wrote that the then-new Moto G was "still the best budget smartphone" around. Little did I know that the quality bar for cheap phones would shoot into the air the way it did over the past 12 months. This updated Moto G faces fiercer...

Moto G (2015) review: this is Motorola's real flagship

 

When Motorola introduced its latest series of smartphones last week, all eyes were on the Moto X. For several years, the Moto X has been Motorola's top-of-the-line phone — the one we all look to...

Very cheap ; Great performance ; Stylish design

Inconsistent camera ; Dull display ; Large body

Moto G (third-generation) review: One of the best budget smartphones gets even better

 

The new Moto G's got great battery life, a better camera and sturdy design -- and you can take it in the shower, which is why we love it.

The new Moto G has improved design, water resistance and a stepped-up camera. The design and hand feel are great, and the battery lasts more than a full day.

Processor speed lags if you're trying to do many things at once. The entry-level version (8GB of storage, 1GB of RAM) is too underpowered compared to the slightly pricier step-up model.

With added water resistance and a better camera, the LTE-enabled Moto G is one of the best affordable unlocked smartphones around right now.

Motorola Moto G Late 2015 8GB, white

 

The Moto G 's been around for a couple of years, but last year's version lacked faster LTE in the US (a global version with LTE has been available since April). This new model adds a lot more than just LTE: it's got better front and rear cameras, has...

Motorola Moto G (2015) review: Big, budget 4G phones don't come much better than this

 

With its large screen, simple interface, 4G connectivity and good battery life, the 2015 Moto G is a great all-round performer for the money.

The Motorola Moto G's big, bright screen makes movies more immersive, the pure Android Lollipop experience is easy to use and both the camera and the battery put in decent performances.

Processor power is underwhelming, even for a budget phone, which makes operation sluggish at times.

The big screen, 4G LTE data speeds and low price make the Motorola Moto G a solid choice both for people who want to watch movies on the move and for smartphone newbies.

Motorola Moto G ( 2015)

 

The 2015 version of the Moto G sees a welcome return of 4G LTE. This fourth generation is visually identical to last year's model, with the same 5-inch, 720p display and 1.2GHz quad-core processor slumbering beneath. It's updated to the latest version...

Motorola Moto G (3rd Generation) Smartphone Review

 

"G" as in good. Motorola gives the third generation of its Moto G a refined face lift and delivers a superb money-performance bundle: A decent camera, long battery life, and up-to-date operating system. What's more, the device is now waterproof.

Personalized design, Decent Bluetooth range, Superb screen, Good GPS performance, Decent camera, Expandable storage

but only by 32 GB, Tight storage (8 GB model), Few HSPA frequencies, No NFC, No DLNA, Miracast, Slim Port or MHL, Few included accessories

Motorola again delivers a good mid-range smartphone with its new Moto G, which convinces with strikingly good key features. The battery life and primary camera are really good and are difficult to match in this price range. The HD screen is also...

Motorola Moto G (2015) Review

 

We can't forget how Motorola popularized the mid-range segment with the original Moto G, but their latest offering is aiming to continue the legacy of delivering exceptional value and performance. Even with thick competition already in the midst, the...

Can’t beat its $180 starting price ; IPX7 certification for water resistance ; Customizable design courtesy of Moto Maker ; Near stock Android experience ; Motorola software enhancements continue to be meaningful ; Outstanding battery life ; Good call...

Super long recharge time ; Sharp tone with speaker at the loudest volume ; Weak 1080p video recording quality ; Choppy graphics processing

It’s only getting tougher for phones in the mid-range category to make an indelible mark in the industry, especially when the last few months have yielded some awesome and value-conscious phones already. For the third-generation Moto G, however, it...

Motorola Moto G (3rd gen) Review

 

Motorola discovered a winning formula when it released the original Moto G in the fall of 2013. Based on stock Android and free of the bloatware that usually clutters the app drawer, it offered a compelling user experience for less than $200. At the...

Battery life • Expandable storage • LTE • Performance • Price

Hazy display coating • 32-bit OS • Non-removable battery

The Moto G (3rd gen) is a significant upgrade over the previous generation in every way that matters. Battery life is excellent and it comes with some of the best cameras available for its price. System performance is good, but hardcore gamers will be...

Motorola Moto G Review (3rd Gen): Good & Cheap

 

Put simply: starting at $180 unlocked, the third-generation Motorola Moto G is the epitome of “bang for your buck.”

Motorola’s software offering, even if it is a little handicapped ; Great battery life ; Extremely affordable

Chunky build ; Not all of Motorola’s fancier software features available ; Middling camera

It’s amazing how much you can get for so little these days. The third generation Moto G, which provides users with the second-most-recent version of Android, a 5-inch display, great battery life, Motorola’s useful (but unobtrusive if you don’t want...
