PROS

  • The Moto G is affordable at a sub-$200 price point.
  • Performance is well beyond what you would expect from a device at this price.
  • The battery life is exceptional.

CONS

  • Despite gains in the MP department, the camera could use some work.
  • The default storage option is a low 8GB, but the phone has a microSD slot.
  • The overall size of the device is a tad too big for many users.
The Moto G is a sub-$200 smartphone capable of surprising and impressing the tech elite. A 5-inch HD screen, 13 MP camera, 2,470 mAh, and 4G lTE included in a device for $189? Get out. And for the first time you can customize it through Motorola's MotoMaker.

The Moto G offers no filler in its version of Android 5.1.1. Whatever extra added features are included is something you’d actually use, like Moto Assist, which automatically changes the sound profiles based on the time of day or your location.

The display probably is the weakest part of the phone. The 5-inch panel has a 1280x720 resolution — also referred to as 720p — and that's the bare minimum we'd even take a look at these days.

Oh and it’s waterproof! Which is just great. I left the Moto G in a glass of water by my desk for about 20 minutes. It still works great.

While it would appear that this device has two front-facing speakers, in fact it is not a stereo speaker system. You have one speaker above the display dedicated to your phone, while the other, below the display, is a mono media speaker.
