Motorola’s really been out of the cell phone business since flip phones went out of fashion, but they’re attempting to claw their way back into the competition with the Moto G. To begin with, it looks quite decent; reminiscent of the ancient (but ever so stylish) Moto Razor, the Moto G is sleek and softly curved. Weighing in at 143 grams, the Moto G feels sturdy and strong and even comes with the option of swappable back covers, you can choose from seven bright colors.
Here are the details of the technical aspects:
• The 4.5 inch multi screen with a resolution of 720×1280 pixels is bright and surprisingly readable in broad daylight
• In the memory department, the Moto G is available at 8GB or 16GB with a RAM up to 1GB.
• The OS is Android Jelly Bean which is upgradable to Kit Kat
• It is compatible with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
• 1.3 megapixel camera
• One minor shortcoming is the lack of micro SD slot, so any additional storage requires access to the cloud
One cool feature about this phone is the smart design of its structure. A little bit of the plastic structure sticks out from the front layer of the glass. This protects the glass from being shattered when it is dropped. Also, the position of the phone is vulnerable and still does not let any part of the phone get dented or harmed.
The battery life of this phone is better than the battery life of most phones in the range.
All in all, at the price of 12,499 INR for the 8GB model, the Moto G stands a decent chance against its competitors the Samsung Galaxy Fame and the Nokia Lumia 520.
