Motorola Moto G (2014)

Description

While most of the buzz has been for its brother the new Moto X, there is officially a new Moto G as well. Of course, there isn't exactly all that much that is new about the device, as it shares quite a bit in common with last year's Moto G. The major difference this year is in the design of the device, while the internals are only a modest update overall compared to last year's Moto G. On the outside, the changes can be summed up in two points: the display is now 5-inches rather than 4.5, and there are stereo front speakers. That's about it. On the inside, the cameras have gotten modest updates (8-megapixels in the rear and 2-megapixels in the front compared to 5MP and 1.3MP), and there is now a microSD card slot. Otherwise, the device has the same Snapdragon 400, 1GB of RAM, swappable shells, and software offerings.

This device is also known as Motorola Moto G (2nd Gen.)

Cons

  • Thick body (0.43 inches)
