After a disappointing Moto X, a subsidiary of Google comes up with a smartphone called Moto G that has indeed nothing to be ashamed of its premium competitors. Especially with an entry level for Rs. 12,499 and a worldwide distribution, especially in Europe and India.
Moto G is well equipped with a 4.5-inch HD screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, the new quad-core processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 at 1.2 Ghz, 1 GB of RAM, 8 or 16GB of storage, a 5 megapixel camera with flash and autofocus, all under Android 4.3 Jellybean with an update to Android 4.4 KitKat guaranteed early 2014. It is 3G/3G+ smartphone.
As with Moto X, the U.S. manufacturer offers many customization options, including interchangeable covers and Motorola Flip cases in seven colors. Too bad the design is so flat.
Moto G is now available in India for a price of Rs. 12,499.
Unlike the Moto X restricted to U.S. market, Moto G could allow Motorola to finally reconnect with the volumes. Motorola reported a net loss of 248 million dollars (185 million euros) in the third quarter.
