First Moto G 2015 hands-on surfaces, high-res images in tow

First Moto G 2015 hands-on surfaces, high-res images in tow
The third generation of Motorola's value-for-money Moto G franchise is about to be announced July 28th at an event taking place in New York, but by now almost all of the specs have already leaked out. Depending on the version, the phone is expected to come with a 5" HD or 1080p display, 4G LTE connectivity, Snapdragon 410 processor or 610 chipsets, 1 GB/ 2 GB RAM, 8GB or 16GB of on-board storage, a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front-facing camera, and this will all run on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop.

With the specs out of the way, we have to admit that we haven't yet had the chance to see the handset in its full glory. Granted, there have been some renders and murky prototype shots, but the gallery below now bares it all. It is allegedly depicting the Moto G 2015 in hands-on photos of sorts, and for the first time we see such high resolution imagery of the device. Check out how the Moto G 2015 will look like when it lands next week, and tell us what you think about this design?

Forget about HD/FHD debate, the screen looks really bad on these pics, you can already see that it washes out on angles...

Were you expecting AMOLED on a 200$ device.

You don't need AMOLED to have a decent quality screen. I've seen a lot of budget phones with good LCD screens which are able to maintain good contrast and colors on most angles. This one looks to be really poor. That being said, it might be these pictures.

Oh right, they look washed out -_- Dude that's because of the picture! If they go for the exact same display panel as Moto G 2014 I'm satisfied cause in real life that display is one of the best IPS panels even though it wont win any contests based on numbers.

I just realize you use your phone by looking at side angles instead facing at it.

Same here, who cares about viewing angles? Lol

I'm still curious as to why people care about viewing angles so much. How often do you do YOU view YOUR phone from a far off angle?

Looks nice, lets just hope the camera is a Big improvement & the battery lasts much longer.

as always people expect top-notch features and hardware on a budget phone. remember these specs - whatever specs it will have - were high-end some 2 or 3 years ago. Motorola makes things right. It doesn't look at specs only, it fits them together in a device that as a whole is impressive. Not many can claim that. I sold my LG G4 again to go back to my Moto G. and i know i'll be upgrading to Moto G 3rd. Just because i know that despite the screen resolution or battery size, it will still be a great phone money can buy
