Moto G (2013) review

 

The best budget handset around

Great value ; Decent screen ; Slick interface

Poor camera ; Low internal storage ; Extra cost for microSD and 4G

Ratings in depth There's a new low cost Motorola on the market in the form of the Moto G (2014). So if you fancy the latest budget Android blower you'll want to check out the 5-inch, 4G enabled, quad-core 2014 edition - although it will cost you a...

Motorola Moto G review - Pocket-lint

 

A great handset for an affordable price, that delivers a fantastic display, good performance, great design and brilliant customising options.

Fantastic price, lovely design, good performance, vibrant display, good camera and sound, Moto Migrate makes set up easy, 50GB free Google Drive storage, great customising options, Android 4.4

No microSD support, switching between front and rear cameras sluggish, battery good but not 24 hours, no NFC

For the price, the Moto G is a fantastic device. It has a beautiful display with bright, vibrant and detailed images, the sound quality is great and the battery capacity will give you a good 14 hours' use in our experience.

Moto G review (1st Gen) - Still a great budget choice for 4G

 

Now available with 4G, the Moto G is an incredible bargain that punches well above its weight and is still the best budget smartphone around

Design-wise, the new model follows the original almost exactly. There's no disguising the plastic finish: it looks and feels like a budget smartphone.

Motorola Moto G review

 

Still the best budget smartphone, the Moto G is an incredible bargain that punches well above its weight

The Motorola Moto G single-handedly says goodbye to compromised, sluggish budget smartphone and potentially kills off the mid-range competition too. Simply put, if you're not buying a top-end handset, then the Moto G is the obvious choice.

Motorola Moto E vs Moto G video review: What's the best budget smartphone?

 

When the Moto G launched, it cost just £135 but it can be purchased for just £99 on a PAYG-basis with O2. Motorola has now introduced the Moto E at an even lower price of £89 but you can knock £10 off that by going PAYG.

Motorola Moto G review budget smartphone

 

Nevertheless, the Moto G isn't flawless. The camera is still just ok and that means we're less likely to get snapping. Our main problem remains in the storage area. With no microSD card slot for adding more storage, our 8GB model is seriously lacking...

Motorola's Moto G is the best budget smartphone around. At £135 it's got great build quality, an excellent screen, decent cameras and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean soon to be upgrade to 4.4 KitKat. It's only limited in the storage department and a lack of 4G...
