Description

Looking at its specs sheet, we're surprised to see how much bang the Moto G can deliver for its money. First and foremost, our eyes are treated to a 4.5-inch "edge-to-edge" LCD display with a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels. This gives us a figure of around 329ppi, which nothing short of great given the phone's cost. A layer of Gorilla Glass 3 protects the screen against light scratches. Then there's the processor ticking inside of the Moto G – a 1.2GHz, quad-core Snapdragon 400 silicon, which is no slouch by any means. 1GB of RAM is available on the device.
