The Moto G is arguably one of the best bang-for-buck Android handsets out there. Motorola made the Moto G at the time that Google was in charge. Motorola has been bought by Lenovo recently but that’s beside the point. The Moto G follows the genes of the Moto X, the highly praised handset which Google produced for Motorola. The Moto G is the cheaper and watered down version, but it is still great and beats a lot of more expensive handsets in the market.
I previously posted an article about the Moto G and called it the best cheap Android phone at the time and it could very well still be the best in its class at the moment. For reference, here are the main specs of the Motorola Moto G.
Motorola Moto G Specs
- 4.5-inch display (720 x 1280 resolution, 329ppi)
- 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU
- Adreno 305
- 1GB RAM
- 8GB, 16GB internal memory
- FM Radio
- 5 megapixel camera with LED flash
- 720p HD video
- 1.3MP front-facing camera
- Android 4.3 Jellybean (Android 4,4 KitKat upgrade promised)
- 2,070mAh battery
Now as to pricing, the 8GB variant of the Moto G is priced at $179 while the 16GB variant is priced at $199. That’s cheap for the specs no matter how you look at it. The Moto G has not been officially launched in the Philippines but is being sold right now by online stores for as low as P10,400 for the 8GB variant. This is clearly more expensive compared to the pricing in the US but this price already takes into account shipping and taxes so it’s still quite reasonable in my opinion.
