Motorola Moto G (2015) pricing info revealed: no surprises
posted by Florin T. / Jul 24, 2015, 7:31 PM
Unlike the Moto G (2014) that currently costs $179, the new model will probably feature LTE connectivity, besides various other enhancements.
While Motorola won't announce the third-generation Moto G before July 28, we've already seen the smartphone in plenty of leaked photos, and even in a promo video. The new handset doesn't look too different from its predecessor, but it's worth mentioning that users will be able to customize it via MotoMaker (previously, this was a Moto X-only thing).
Running Android 5.1 Lollipop, the third-generation Moto G is water-resistant, and should feature a 5-inch 720p display, a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, 13 MP rear camera, 5 MP front-facing camera, and a 2470 mAh battery. It's said that a Moto G (2015) variant with a 1080p screen and 2 GB of RAM will also be available at some point. Naturally, this should be more expensive than the 720p, 1 GB model.
Who's looking forward to buying the new Motorola Moto G?
- Display 5.0" 720 x 1280 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 410, Quad-core, 1400 MHz
- Storage 16 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 2470 mAh

I'm really curious to see how they'll price the 1080p, 2GB/16GB version of the device. If it's too much higher, they run the risk of coming awfully close to other devices that look better on paper.

Thing is in Europe and USA you cant find 99% of the cheap Chinese phones. So it has 0 competition and the 2gb model even if its 150$ more I don't see it having issues when LG rolls out Moto G specs phones and price them at 400$.

They should have went 1080p and 2GB RAM ,16GB NAND at that price (or 199$ if needed). As it is now , the pricing is 2x China prices and the upgrade over the first and second gen Moto G rather rminor ( the cams got upgraded and the SoC keeps up with the times,although a bit on the slow side) while parts got a lot cheaper since 2 years ago. At launch the G series was midrange, now it's becoming low end and that ruins both the G brand and Moto E.

Chinese phones - ex that Alcatel one and the zenfone will never reach the build quality or the update schedule the Moto G has , Zenfone might get a update to 5.1 but thats the end of the line

You're absolutely right currently using moto g first gen got Android L month ago and what a piece of s**t my phone become ..slugish as s**t even a spare lumia 521 seems to be faster .. So as far as updates go I wouldn't trust Motorola since they don't optimize their upgrades like Google does for their nexus line up. On prices that 2gb model better be 200$ Lol zenfone 2 with 4gb is 300$ is still seems to be a better option . well waiting until the 28th.

China phones do not have to pay for patents like other phones. Not to mention they make very razor thin profits on hopes that one million pennies nets them a profit or close enough so they can start to release hero phones that are every bit as expensive as other phones.

I love motorola (turbo, 360, hx550 as my daily drivers), but the Moto E will be a better buy for the money for those that don't need the extra .5" screen since you can find it most places for $100ish. Otherwise it'd be better to go with the $199 Zenphone 2.
