Moto G by Motorola runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat, the most updated smartphone offering an amazing Android experience. More flat designs, much vibrant colors in status icons, enhanced transparency and smooth interface and transitions are what make Moto G an irresistible device. Further Moto G offers five mindboggling customizable homescreens and a spectrum of widgets and apps. Another feature is its outstanding voice guided search feature.

Battery Life:

Moto G contains 1.2 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with Adreno 305 graphics and 1 GB of RAM onboard. The phone is available in two storage capacities: 8GB and 16 GB but the bad news is that it cannot support expandable storage which is definitely a loophole cannot be overlooked.


What makes Moto G undeniable irresistible is its latest version of Android that too on a small device carrying the lowest price tag. Moto G stands apart from the crowd when it comes to widgets and apps and its overall navigation interface but yes its non-expandable storage and weak camera performance are definitely matters of concern. Overall Moto G is not at all a bad bargain for its affordable price.
