Motorola Moto G (2015) 16 GB is now $20 cheaper

Last year, when Motorola released its third-generation Moto G smartphone, it started offering two variants of the handset: one with 8 GB of internal memory and 1 GB of RAM (priced at $179.99), and one with 16 GB of storage space and 2 GB of RAM (priced at $219.99). Both are still available to buy in the US, and the latter is now $20 cheaper - you can grab it for just $199.99 if you're purchasing it from Motorola's own website (see the source link at the end of this article). The deal ends on March 7, so there's plenty of time for you to decide if you really want to get yourself a new Moto G.

Initially running Android 5.1 Lollipop, the Moto G (2015) was recently updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow. The handset is the first in the Moto G series that can be customized via Moto Maker, as well as the first to be water-resistant (the previous model was only splash-resistant).

Sure enough, the Moto G (2015) is by no means an advanced smartphone, but it's undoubtedly a good product for its price. You can find out more about the device and its features by reading our Motorola Moto G (2015) review.

Woohoo, Idol3 5.5" is now $180 on Amazon. MotoG 2015 is in big trouble, better cut the price to $120 pronto.

Alcatel Idol 3 with Snapdragon 615 and 5.5" 1080p screen goes for $249. Blu LIfe One X with 615 equivalent Mediatek SoC and 5.2" 1080p screen is only $149. MotoG 2015's Snapdragon 410 is too low-spec for $220. Even at $200 it's not compelling enough, a fairer price should be $170... brutal!

Don't forget the Honor 5X and Sony M4 Aqua, both $200 (lucky Americans, lots of choice), however, the Moto G has software advantage, no headaches.

Great phone for the price...the competition is immense but I choose consistency over specs

The Moto G (2015) wasn't actually that great for the price. For $220 they should've at least included a Snapdragon 615

Beware, Moto G 2015 has a screen touch issues (ghost touch, phantom touch), you scroll and it taps instead of scrolling, incredibly annoying and an issue that affects, as far as I know all Moto G 2015s. Look it up it's a known issue. Another one is, you can't clean the ear piece because the fabric rips apart, the material is more fragile than butterfly wings. The performance is fantastic though, fast and smooth and with very little stutter (much less than OnePlus X and others)

They had no choice, there's way better speced phones nowadays for $200 than the Moto G. Step your game up Lenovo
