Motorola Moto G

With a best in class screen, efficient yet powerful processor and some of the latest software, the Motorola Moto G is a high quality smartphone that doesn’t break the bank.

Overview Image

The essential tech specs

The Motorola Moto G has a 2,070mAh battery that’s good for up to 14 hours when you’re making phone calls. It’s powered by a 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 400 processor and the Android 4.4 KitKat operating system. There’s a 4.5" 720p HD display that has a sharp pixel density of 339 pixels per inch. You’ll also get a 4MP camera and 8GB internal storage.

Overview Image

Bring things to life on the HD screen

The most striking feature of the Motorola Moto G is its 4.5" HD screen, which isn’t just the biggest in its class, it’s the sharpest too. That means whether you’re reading an e-book, watching a video or just browsing the web, everything will look pinpoint sharp and you’ll be able to see incredible detail. It’s also perfect for looking back at the amazing photos you’ve taken with the Moto G’s 5MP camera.

Overview Image

All day power

To make the most of the Motorola Moto G’s incredible screen you’ll need enough power to run lots of apps and games all day. That’s why Motorola gave the Moto G a 1.2GHz quad core processor that’ll cope with anything you throw at it; from high quality games to intensive multitasking. And keeping that speedy processor ticking over is a big battery that’ll keep going for as long as you do.

Overview Image

The best Android experience

Getting the best apps and games to make the most of your Motorola Moto G is easy too, thanks to the excellent Android 4.4 KitKat software. It gives you access to more than 1 million apps via the Google Play Store and runs extremely smoothly and efficiently.

Review 1 for Motorola Moto G™
Fabulous
from york
,23 August 2014
I have had an iPhone 5 a galaxy S3 and I have to say I love this phone it is easily as good as the others. It is a perfect size. With a great screen I am addicted to my kindle app and use this every day to read books..I enjoy some games and the picture quality is excellent. I don't really use the camara but looks good enough to me. Highly recommended I am never spending £500 on a phone again.

Review 2 for Motorola Moto G™
Best non Samsung Galaxy S phone
from Edinburgh
,21 August 2014
This phone is without a doubt the best android phone I ever had. Obviously it is not a flagship phone but if you are on a budget don't be daft avoiding this phone! Due to it's HD screen it is swell for movies and TV shows and above all though not 3g the internet is ridcously fast even on wi fi! For example it takes 3 secs for a website to pop up! Only bad things are 5mp camera, lack of storage and inbuilt battery. In my opinion this phone is the king and queen of all budget phones!

Review 3 for Motorola Moto G™
Amazing phone!
from Leicester
,20 August 2014
I bought this phone after owning the original samsung galaxy s and it hasn't let me down once. The screen and body are the perfect size. The camera, despite only being 5mp, is great and produces pictures with great clarity. As well as the amazing screen and size, this device is so fast; many of my friends have the latest iPhones and I've found this device to match if not beat those devices. The removable backs make this device colourful and fun and adds a little bit of a personal touch to this device.
Overall this device is amazing especially for such a low price. I'd recommend this product to everyone looking for a cheap, high-end phone.

Review 4 for Motorola Moto G™
Disappointing so far
,14 August 2014
Not had the phone long and am amazed how bad the battery is and how slow it is to recharge via my laptop
The play store doesn't currently work and it's too large to fit into my jeans pocket.
If you read the other reviews you think, ok the camera's not so great, but I don't really want a camera. So for £130 it'll be great. Sadly I'm disappointed and very suspicious of who exactly wrote those other reviews.

Review 5 for Motorola Moto G™
Moto G - Best by miles...!!!
from Bristol
,06 August 2014
Bought mobile after checking reviews & getting fed up with the same old, same old, Samsung had to offer...!!! The Moto G is an incredible phone for the price..!! The reviews don't do it justice to be honest.....it's like a top of the range phone but much cheaper..!! If you're dying of Samsung boredom, treat yourselves to a Moto G...you'll wish you did months ago...!!! :-)

Review 6 for Motorola Moto G™
Perfect
from Scotland
,19 July 2014
After looking for so many phones I came across the moto g. It is a brilliantly designed phone, great screen, amazing camera, so many good apps to download and amazing battery life. Of course google is a great company so this phone is great. I have told all my friends about it and half of them have changed from iPhone to Motorola. I would recommend this phone to anyone of any age as it is an easy phone to use. I watch videos everyday as the display is so good. It has gorilla glass (the phone screen can't smash this easily) and it also can be dropped in water and it doesn't break, run over by a car and is still useable and overall is just a fantastic phone.
