T he Motorola Moto G will be available in at least 30 countries with 60 Google partners by 2014. It has already been confirmed that Motorola will be launching the dual-SIM version of the Moto G in India in early-January 2014, and that the smartphone would be receiving a ‘guaranteed’ Android 4.4 KitKat the same month, a new report says the model that will ship in India will come pre-loaded with Google’s latest iteration of Android.
Although the Moto G doesn’t quite have the aesthetic purity of the Nexus 5, with both matt and gloss finishes on show and non-colour-matched buttons, it still looks more expensive than it is.
This phone may hit market at around 13 -14 k, Motorola has employed a water-resistant ‘nano’ layer inside the phone, designed to protect it from light splashes. The design also keeps any power connections away from water, by sealing in the battery. It’s non-removable, which some of you may not like, but finishing touches like mild water resistance are the last things we expect at this price.
The Moto G will be available in a variety of garish colors, including turquoise and purple, or you can opt for a plain black version if you don’t want to stand out too much. The Moto X is highly customizable with numerous different colors and finishes available — including a rather smart wood casing. It’s not known yet whether the Moto G will have similar personalization options.
Pros : Jaw-dropping value, Great screen, Great performance.
Cons : Camera just OK, No microSD slot
