Design

Motorola Moto G
The Motorola Moto G is the exact same feel and built to that of the Motorola Moto X. It has the most accurate back panel curve to fit your hands. The plastic does not feel cheap at all and yes this one is available with the stream of colours we got from the Moto X. But no, they do not give you the full front panel back panel customization which had a whopping 504 combinations possible. The built quality is spot on. Micromax and other budget smartphone makers are playing a losing battle from now on.

Display

Motorola Moto G
Display is not compromised as well. This one has THE most beautiful 4.5 inch 720×1280 pixels display on a phone around that price. There is no visible pixilation and wait, yeah it is a 720p if you could not make that out from the resolution. Yes, an HD display indeed. It is so Nexus 4-ish, the display. It packs 326ppi pixel density which is simply amazing. The colours do look a tad underdone but they project uniform and great clarity. Viewing angles are not that great but Moto G sails high in the display standard as well.

Camera

Motorola Moto G
Moto G has a 5MP primary sensor backed up by a really sweet camera user interface which is fairly easy to use. The Motorola Moto G takes decent shots. It will not be your primary camera for the household but a really decent shooter. The colours are a bit under saturated and it is surely not meant for low light photography. You can also capture 720p video and SLOW MOTION VIDEO. Say what?

Software

Motorola Moto G
Out of the box, the Motorola Moto G comes with Android v4.3 Jelly Bean but Motorola has said this will be getting an Android v4.4 Kit Kat update soon, that is right! So yeah enjoy! It is more of a stock Android and this is good news because your processor is not going to wear out like other high end bulky on RAM phones. And it is Android right, the apps are all going to be there and one of the best app eco system on the planet.

Performance

Packed with the Snapdragon 400 1.2GHz Quad Core processor, this phone will be way ahead in optimization and speed standing against the MTK processors. It will lag over a period of time but the experience is simply stunning. Moto G was able to carry out heaviest of games with no major problems. You show me the price, you give me this in my hand to see how it works and I am sold, it is that easy. Motorola Moto G comes with 1GB of RAM even multitasking is super-efficient. There are two versions of the storage available- 8GB and 16GB. No expansion. This will keep that Snapdragon 400 as efficient as ever. It also comes with 50GB of free storage from Google Drive. Again something Motorola-ish, the battery will carry you to 2 days with moderate usage! AMAZING RIGHT? YES OF COURSE.

Final Thoughts

You should actually have that jaw of yours dropped by now. You should also be using your plastic money to order one right away. There are simply too many reasons to buy this one of a kind budget smartphone. It gives you everything without taking anything away. Brilliant.
