In no time at all, the Moto G has gone on to become Motorola’s most successful smartphone ever. Now in its third generation, the affordable device (which is still absurdly affordable) is even better than before, boasting the kind of specs that will be more than enough for the average consumer. Meet the new cheap smartphone king.
Announced earlier this week, Motorola upped the ante by stuffing some terrific specs into a very attractive body. That familiar Moto design language is there, made even better by support for Moto Maker, which allows owners to choose the back, front and accent colors. It looks great, and feels even better.
But that’s just the tip of what the Moto G offers. Powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, the device is pretty well specced; it includes 1GB/2GB of RAM, 8GB/16GB of expandable storage, a 5-inch 720p display, 2470mAh battery, 13-megapixel camera (5-megapixel front-facing shooter), and LTE right out of the gate.
That’s about all you need. Sure, it doesn’t stack up against some of today’s more popular flagships, but it’s still worthy of consideration, especially if you need a burner phone or you’re just now jumping into the smartphone market. This thing is also water resistant, too, adding yet another reason to make this your next phone.
Better still, the new Moto G also supports some of the company’s best tweaks, including Moto Display and Moto Assist. Complement that with a pure Android experience, and it’s easy to see why the Moto G has been so successful in the past.
At $180, the Moto G is one of the best offers out there, combining design, specs and software into a flagship-esque experience. And it’s available right now.
