The Moto G and it's successor, the Moto G(2nd Gen) were without a doubt the best phones in the price range of 100-200$ since their release. Let's see what the 3rd Gen of this affordable Android phone has in store for the customers.
From the raw performance perspective, the newest Moto G packs in a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 clocked at 1.4 GHz and quad cores. The accompanying GPU is the Adreno 306 along with 1 GB or 2 GB of RAM, depending on the version of the phone (8 GB or 16 GB). Both the versions support microSD cards for expanding the memory so that isn't a big issue.
You're in for a surprise in the camera section as this affordable phone packs the same 13 MP f/2.0 sensor as the Nexus 6! It even features a Dual Tone LED flash. The front camera is a 5 MP shooter. The display spans 5" with a resolution of 720p which means the pixel density would be decent.
Connectivity wise, the phone is pretty well equipped with 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, and Bluetooth 4.1. The phone will come out of the box with Lollipop 5.1.1 and will most probably be updated to Android M.
The battery is huge for a sub-200$ phone at 2470 mAh and with Motorola's power efficient phones, this phone could potentially work for 2 days for low to medium usage. Some of the biggest changes include the addition of an IPX7 rated design, meaning that the phone is water resistant up to 1 meter for 30 minutes.
The phone is priced at 180$ for the 8 GB model and 220$ for the 16 GB model.
While the Moto G might not feature massively overhauled hardware from its predecessor, that’s really never been the point. Ever since the Moto X and Moto G lines debuted, Motorola has prided itself it putting the customer experience ahead of pure specs. With improved design, waterproofing, a great camera, a ton of customization options, and other improvements, that’s exactly what we have with the latest Moto G.
