Moto G Unboxing and Review


Dec 26, 2012
For those who are interested the Moto G is an awesome piece of mobile technology. It's very affordable and you get a lot for what you are paying for.

The Moto G comes boxed with minimum content. All you really get is the phone and a USB cable for charging. Yes, there is no plug adapter - but again you get a lot for your money.

When you first take out the Moto G it feels really comfortable in your hand and doesn't at all feel cheap. It rather feels very nice in the hand. The back has a water resistant coating and is very smooth to the touch. There is a slight curve in the back which is nice.

Switching the phone on you get the Motorola introduction. It's rather nice. The 720p LCD display is beautiful to look at and it won't be getting much (if any) scratches thanks to the gorilla glass that's been put there.

The phone itself runs on Android 4.3 with a SnapDragon 400 processor. 1 GB ram is nice but I'd love to have seen 2GB, but again it's not an expensive phone. This phone should fly once google updates it to Android Kit Kat, which uses less RAM and so will make this phone fly.

Using the phone it is great. The audio from the back speaker is sufficient for watching Youtube videos and the 720p screen is wonderful. Browsing the web is surprisingly fast and generally bug free. You can zoom in an out without any glitches and it's great.

The camera on the phone is 5mp. Now it's not the best smartphone camera out there but it does the job. You won't be getting many photography awards by using this camera:)

Overall the phone is really great considering you can buy this for under
