An Overview of the Motorola Moto G

The Motorola Moto G is the third of its kind. Compared to its predecessors, the original Moto G and the Moto G 4G LTE, the 2014 model has hardware specs that are improved and much better.

In terms of design and build, the Motorola Moto G is a front runner. It takes on a rounded shape on the side corners. It is easy to hold due to its flat grip. The phone is 5.6 inches in height and 2.8 inches wide. This makes the Motorola Moto G large enough without being too gigantic. It weighs 149 grams, so it does get a bit heavy when carried in the hand or purse. However, there are many other phones on the market that are much heavier than the Motorola Moto G. The phone has a five inch screen; at the price the phone is offered, this is an acceptable screen size. With its high definition capability, the images you view on the phone are very bright in color.

The operating system the Motorola Moto G runs on is Android 4.4 KitKat. Motorola offers a few of its own apps with this phone: a safety alert, as well as a program that allows you to transfer your items from a previous phone to your new phone.

The camera and video on the Motorola Moto G is also an upgrade from its predecessors. The five megapixel camera is a thing of the past. The 2014 model of the phone offers an 8-megapixel camera that allows you to shoot some decent videos and photos. If you desire to do so, you can also downsize to six megapixels, which will allow for a wider screen. The downside of this feature on the Motorola Moto G is that there is not a touch focus available.

The battery life of the Motorola Moto G is relatively fair. It contains a 2,070mAh battery. When tested, it has been shown that it has enough power to last through a typical work day. When the phone is constantly being used to conduct activities such as playing videos, it has been shown that the phone can last up to an average of eight hours.

There are many new features that make the Motorola Moto G well worth considering. The improved hardware specs, affordable price, and design make this a budget phone that sets the bar high for Motorola phones that will be made available in the future.
