    Shekhar Wagh (Jun 1, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Moto G is a great phone at Rs 14k for 16GB version. Best thing about the phone is it's superb 720p HD display and stock android UI, due to which it will get android updates which is rare for android phones below Rs 20k. So you will be always on the latest android version. It easily beats other smartphone below 20k like Xperia M, Xperia L, Xperia C, Galaxy Core, Galaxy Grand Quattro, etc. It's like cheaper Nexus device for those who cannot afford to shell Rs 30k for Nexus 5. Overall great phone and it never lags.

  • Best phone...Amazing price
    Anand Gokul (May 16, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    The Moto G has finally been launched in India. Software The Moto G received the KitKat update as promised by Motorola. Also, the Kitkat version features a almost stock Android experience with other Motorola apps like Messaging, Assist, Migrate, ... that are equally useful. The 16 GB version packs enough juice to get you through most regular usage and the user gets around 12.8 GB excluding the Android system apps. Display The Moto G's stunning HD display boasts of image and display quality even better than the iPhone. The Gorilla Glass 3 promises a break and scratch proof front for the phone. Also, the 4.5 inch is perfect fit for most pockets..unlike other phablets that stand out of your pockets. Design The Moto G features a unique and trendy design with its curved back that makes it easier to hold with your palm and also use with a single hand. The interchangable back cover guarantees that the user won't get bored of using the same colour phone for long. Also, the water-repellant nano particle coating provides the phone protection against water spills, a feature not found even in most high end phones. Performance The cheap price definitely did not mean cheap performance. It boasts of Qualcomm's SNapdragon 400 processor and includes Adreno 305 for gaming graphics. In my opinion, the Moto G outperformed even the Galaxy Gand 2 and others in its app launch speed and the ease of app switching and multitasking. To try it out, I ran heavy graphic games like Fifa 14, Asphalt 8 Airborne, Temple Run 2, and Gta San Andreas simultaneaously and noticed that the phone could easily switch apps without any lag. Also, it resumed the game from where I has paused it without dumping the existing memory which is tremondously great for such a budget phone. Camera The phone's camera boats of 5MP back and 1.2 MP front. The default camera app is not so good for heavy photographers. This can be overcome by using other apps from play store though. The front camera quality is awesome and would satisfy the needs of most selfie takers. Battery The battery can last a day without intnert usage on mobile data. It can last a day and night with Wifi usage and can get you a whooping 2-3 days without internet usage. (I used the "AUTO" brightness setting). Also, it can help you cross around 12 hours with only 15% battery. Value for money The one area where this phone is the absolute winner is value for money. There is no other phone that boasts of such high specs for so low price. (Indian brands may offer higher specs, but they may use lower quality MediaTek processors, no water resistance, no Gorilla Glass and so on along with poor service). This comes from a world- renowned brand that made the first phone, so, expect quality after-sales-service from it. I would definitely recommend this phone- priced for all. It is great for teenagers to show off in college along wih the trendy back panels and latest version of Android. It is perfect for ggeks as Motorola has mad

  • Moto G, a game changer
    Narendra Chandana (May 6, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Moto G in India is dual sim variant with 1.2GHz Qualcomm snapdragon 400 processor and 1 GB of ram. 4.5 inch display with 720x1280 screen resolution gives pixel density of 329 ppi which is similar to iphone5s gives you wonderful display. Reading ebooks or browsing webpages is fantastic and text is absolutely crisp. It has a gorilla glass 3, which is scratch resistant and also been coated with water repellant nano-coating. Though Motorola official isn?t named it water resistant, you could find in youtube that it survived few minutes in a water bowl. It doesn?t support external memory card. If you are a gamer, then better prefer a 16GB variant as 8GB variant only gives 5.52GB available to user and some games are even above 1GB of size. Also if you are gamer, Adreno 305 GPU used in Moto G gives you best performance in its prize range. Its 5MP camera is kind of disappointment, but considering prices of 12.5k and 14k, I am satisfied with camera. Camera interface is simple to use and touching anywhere on screen takes a snap. If you are bored of regular black color covers, Moto G has an option of colored back panels. Though it is plastic you can feel a soft coating on back panel which gives you a feel of premium smartphone in your hands. 2070mAh battery is enough to get through for more than 2days for normal use and also it is highest capacity you could get at such price in android mobiles. Moto G has a physical LED notification light at top which blinks for any notifications, messages, and missed calls. Motorola has provided latest Andriod version 4.4.2 KitKat update for this device and has promised all newer updates to Moto G for 15 months. I saw the KitKat update improved some performances like usage of less Ram. Before I updated to kitkat, free ram was to be like 200MB and after updating about 400MB Ram is available which helps you more in multi-tasking. The new feature which is available after KitKat update for Indian Moto G is that it supports OTG option. That is you can access a Pen-drive from your mobile. It played HD movie from a Pendrive so easily without a glitch as like I?m playing it in a laptop. So it gives you added benefit of not storing everything on your Moto G. Moto G after Kitkat update also supports cloud printing for HP printers. I have been using Moto G since Feb 12 and there is absolutely no lag. It has 1.3MP front cam for video calling and also wifi, which are slowly becoming mandatory specs while we are buying mobiles. It doesn?t support 4G LTE and NFC feature, however for now, in India these are not a problem at all. Motorola has seriously compromised on profit margins and made profit by selling more units. I believe Moto G is a game changer. Even after 4 months after the Moto G launch, there is not even a single international branded android mobile to give Moto G a fight even at Rs20,000/-. If your budget is in between 10k to 20k, go for Moto G without a second thought.

  • Great Phone but not everyone knows.
    Inderjeet Verma (Oct 29, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    This is really a very good quality phone for very decent price. Motorola is a brand, look for another phone in this price range like Samsung, sony, nokia they simply cannot match this. what else you expect from a brand phone but not everyone is aware about what moto g is. They still buying crap in the name of smartphone.

  • Awsome Phone
    Nikhil Lotke (Jun 17, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    Can't express in words... I bought MOTO G from flipkart for 13999 (16GB) Good looking, sharp and clear picture quality, faster, smooth touch... But frankly would recommend people to purchase this phone if your budget is between 10,000 to 15,000. Thanks Google for MOTO G

And then after so many efforts and wait as I got my hands on the much awaited device, wow!! That's all I can say, it's hard to say wow in 14000 rs!!

  • Moto G .Best Budget Buy phone
    Swapnil Kolhe (May 31, 2014) on Gadgets 360
    It was my Cousin who bought it ...and i was around this phone for 3 days. On first glance, the Moto G looks similar to the duplicate of budget handsets on the market as it's got a cheap plastic front but you get a lot of performance - and the backpanel is interchangeable allowing for a degree of customisation. Screen is 4.5 Tft HD deisplay. And it is protected by Gorilla glass 3. Visuals are sharp and produces excellent display.But to its price Moto G gives you the best what others dnt offer u at this price. The Moto G is one of a handful of smartphones which basic OS is Android 4.4.2 KitKat. For cutting cost Motorola is giving 5 megapixel back camera and front 1.3 megapixel camera. U just need to Flick from left of the screen inside the camera app to reveal settings ? HDR mode, Flash, widescreen mode, Control Focus and Exposure Settings, slow-motion video, panorama and geo-tagging. Undoubtedly it supports wifi,bluetooth GPS and 3G.Though 4G is missing to cost down the model. Battery is 2070 mAh which will be sufficient for all day usage as it is not Full HD. Though battery is not removable.It comes in 2 models 8Gb and 16gb. there is no expandable memory but supports OTG cable. It comes with power pack Qual Comm's quad core Snapdragon chipset along side of 1 gb Ram.And Adreno 305 GPU.Gaming expirience is Fantastic.At this cost u can run high end games and they run smoothly. Performance this Phone is the best buy in Market for 14,000rs. Phone offers u additional 50Gb Google drive space for free. Reason to buy 1-Excellent value for money if u r buying Budget phone under 14,000rs. 2-Great display in this range. 3-Regular Android update 4-Those who love to Customize phone back panels. Not to buy 1-No expandable storage. 2-Limited space ,You cant carry your entire music collection with you. 3-No 4g connectivity. 4-If you are fancy of 5'inch screen.
