Moto G 2nd Gen review – now with Android 5.0 and 4G

 

With its large screen, improved camera and 4G support, the 2nd Gen Moto G is one of the best budget smartphones you can buy

The Moto G 2nd Gen is still a great bargain. It's a £140 phone that gives a surprising number of £200-plus mid-range handsets a real run for their money, and in most cases actually beats them hands down in terms of overall value. The Vodafone Smart...

Moto G 4G (2nd Gen) review

 

Motorola's budget barnstormer gets 4G and a bigger battery

Clear, natural-looking screen ; Smooth design ; Low-bloat software

Very slow app loads ; CPU is slightly dated

It’s the Moto G hardware we know and love, but its latest software spoils its performance

New Moto G 4G 2015 review: A poor successor to the best budget phone ever

 

If you're looking for a cheap 4G smartphone then the Moto E 4G is the best deal on the market right now. If you would rather have a cheap dual-SIM phone with 3G connectivity then the mark 3 Moto G is your best bet. But the new Moto G 4G for 2015 is not...

Motorola Moto G 4G (2015) | Moto G 2 with 4G review

 

Motorola does it again with a top value phone and now it has 4G

Running the latest version of Android, as all new Motorola phones do, there aren’t any great surprises with the Moto G 2’s software. Making the decision to install a clean version of Android 5 Lollipop with only a hint of Motorola dusting is, as...

Motorola Moto G 4G (2015) review

 

The Motorola Moto G is still one of the reigning budget smartphones, giving you all the Android smart wares you need for a low-cost price point, and now the Lenovo-owned company has rolled out a 4G version of last year's updated model. Is it the best...

Motorola refreshed its Moto G late last year, blessing it with a larger, 5-inch display, a better camera and microSD storage, but it lacked one crucial feature: 4G. That's now been rectified with the latest Moto G model, this year's 4G variant, but not...

The latest Moto G is better than last year's model, but it still retains many of the same specs, including its 1.2GHz quad-core processor. We're well into 2015, and that same CPU is starting to show its age: We found using the phone in day to day use...

Motorola has improved on last year's edition with the new Moto G 4G, and its £159 still puts it in budget territory for first-time smartphone buyers and newcomers. Its 4G powers will keep you up to date for longer, but we wish its processor was a bit...

Motorola Moto G 2nd Gen Smartphone Review

 

Update Lite. Motorola's Moto G2 mid-range smartphone had picked up a good rating in our test, but it did not feature LTE. The manufacturer has eliminated this drawback in its new edition, and has installed the latest, supposedly faster Android Lollipop...

LTE, Android 5.0 Lollipop, update to 5.1 announced, Non-slip casing, Removable back covers, Decent stereo speaker, Useful cameras, Good battery life, Bright, very color accurate screen, Decent Wi-Fi reception, Gaming suitable, Splash-water proof, FM radio

No dual-SIM (in contrast to the precursor), Middling performance, Non-removable battery, Pressure-sensitive casing, Tight internal storage, GPS sluggish and sometimes inaccurate, 720p videos only, No power supply included

The same verdict applies to Motorola's Moto G 2nd Gen G4 as for the Moto G2 UMTS model. The significant modifications are LTE, the brighter but overall only marginally better screen (production deviation?), and the storage's considerably faster...

Moto G 2015: The best Android experience around $200 can buy

 

Can a phone priced around $200 rival other handsets that cost four to five times more? Surprisingly, yes if that phone is the 2015 Moto G.

Great overall experience for the price and provides many flagship attributes including a much improved camera.

Missing a few nice-to-haves, such as NFC, a gyroscope and wireless charging.

Motorola Moto G (2015, Unlocked)

 

The new Motorola Moto G doesn't cost much, but it's all the smartphone many people will need.

Excellent battery life. Elegant software. Customizable. Durable. Loud earpiece

Not the strongest signal. Somewhat tinny speakers

The Moto G has always gotten the basics right: low price, long battery life, and good call quality. That's made the previous two versions some of the most popular entry-level smartphones in the world. The third-generation unlocked Moto G ($179.99)...

Motorola Moto G (2015) review

 

Motorola updated its popular budget Moto G smartphone in 2014 with a larger 5-inch display, an improved camera and expandable storage. Oddly, however, the company removed a critical feature that had been present in the preceding model: 4G LTE.

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.
