Motorola Moto G size comparison: this is how it fares against the competition

The Motorola Moto G 2015, the third generation of the trooper, is here. The 5-inch device is a once again not disappointing, as it comes with a pretty good bang-for-buck ratio. Hardware-wise, it comes with a 720p display, commanding a 294ppi pixel density, a Snapdragon 410 chipset, and a 2,470mAh battery. 

The device will be available in two versions. One of them will be equipped with 8GB of native storage and 1GB of RAM, while the other will be adorned with 16GB of native storage and 2GB of RAM. Fret not, the microSD card slot is here to stay.

We've seen the specs and the slightly refreshed design, but what about the size of the phone? Well, we devised a size comparison between the newest Moto G and some of the more popular smartphones on the market, as well as its predecessors.

They said its 11.6 mm but goes to 6 mm at the edges I still think it's too thick plus what's really disappointing ...it has no LED notification light as far as I could see unless someone could prove me wrong? That's definitely a dealbreaker for me
