Motorola announced the third generation Moto G in July last year and it became available in several regions shortly after. It was a significant upgrade compared to its predecessor because, for the first time, every version of the phone supports LTE connectivity and the hardware is rated IP67, making it water and dust resistant. Also, users could customize the hardware with the Moto Maker where it is available. The camera was improved as well, as it now includes the same 13-megapixel sensor that the company used in the Nexus 6. Besides those details, it included the mid-range specs that everyone had come to expect and the ones that made this series so popular. A little later on, the company introduced the Moto G Turbo Edition, it was first available in Latin America and Europe but then it was headed to India. This version shared almost all of the specs of the regular version, but the processor powering up the device was now the octa-core Snapdragon 615, which also features fast charging capabilities.
If you’re interested in either of these devices and you live in India, you might visit Motorola’s regional site to find out more about them, but when you hit the Buy Now or Shop Now button, you’ll be redirected to the e-commerce site Flipkart to complete your purchase. These phones have been exclusive to this retailer since they launched, but not anymore, as Amazon India is now selling them as well.
Amazon India slowly added more mobile devices to their product offerings and now the OnePlus X can be purchased from them as well as some Motorola products such as the Moto E and the Moto 360. The Moto G can be purchased from Amazon at the same price users would find in Flipkart, INR 10,999 (around $162) for the version that includes 16 GB of internal storage and 2 GB of RAM. Amazon is selling the Moto G Turbo Edition for INR 12,499 (around $184). Let’s remember that Amazon has just changed their return policy regarding smartphones, so you might want to check that out before making a purchase from this company. Still, it’s always better to have additional options to purchase this kind of devices.
