Product Description

Moto G
Exceptional Phone. Exceptional Price.

Moto G is designed for all the things you want to do—taking and sharing photos, watching videos, checking scores, getting directions, listening to music, you name it. Moto G also gives you choices. Different backs you can switch out to reflect your unique style, and access to more than one million apps on Google Play to create your own mobile experience. Every detail is just how you’d like it.

Sharpest HD display

The big, brilliantly sharp screen is what you’ll notice first. Then how easy it is to use with one hand because of how it’s curved. Every detail, inside and out, is designed to impress. And built to last. If you could see into the future, you’d know Moto G is the phone you’ll have for a good, long time.

Edge-to-Edge HD Display

What you’ll notice first about Moto G is the sharp HD screen. Its edge-to-edge display stretches to all four corners of the phone. Watch, read and browse on a big, brilliant display. You’ll get a sharp picture and then some.

Corning Gorilla Glass

Moto G is built to last. Because the screen is made with Corning Gorilla Glass, you get extra protection from everyday scratches and scrapes. So you can actually use your phone the way you want to without worrying about it.

Water-Repellent Coating

Water is your phone’s worst enemy. So for extra protection, Moto G has a water-repellent coating on the outside. Now, a little rain won’t stop you from taking a call.

All day Quad-Core speed

If you’ve ever been frustrated by what you couldn’t see or access with your phone, Moto G is what you’ve been waiting for. With an easy-to-use Android operating system, Moto G is designed for all the things you want to do— streaming YouTube, checking Gmail, browsing on Chrome, finding your way on Maps, and more. Moto G opens up a new world to you.

Battery friendly

You’re not always going to find an outlet or be able to stop and plug in somewhere. Moto G is smart when it comes to the battery, so as you go about your day, you won’t run out of power.

Quad-Core Processor

You don’t have to hang up to send an email or turn off YouTube when you want to text. Switch between tasks without slowing down. With a super-fast processor, Moto G multitasks as easily as you do.

Advanced Android with Guaranteed Upgrade

With Moto G, you’ll be running on the Android operating system, the world’s most popular platform. So you’ll stay up to speed with easy access to Google mobile services, more than one million apps and games, and more to come.

Personalise with Coloured Backs

Every day is different, and your Moto G can be too. It’s completely your call if you want to put on a different coloured back, or set up actions so you’re not bothered when you don’t want to be. Moto G gives you many ways to just be yourself. Moto G has a back you can switch out, just like that. Buy any back—or 10 or 20—that speaks to you. Some have grips. Some have prints. Some flip. All are fun. Then decide to match, or change things up for no reason at all, whenever the mood strikes.


Moto G has two cameras: one for what’s in front of you, and one that’s facing you. Touch anywhere on the screen to take a shot, or hold your finger on the screen to take multiple shots in a row. Then switch gears and record an HD video or capture a panoramic picture. Just swipe to see your gallery or zoom in on an image. Within three taps, quickly share your best photos with friends and family. For getting the shot and staying in touch, Moto G is all the camera you need.

FM Radio

There’s music in the world and tons of it is still free. Just tune in with Moto G’s FM radio. Listen to your favourite stations or pick up a new signal. It’s all yours to explore.

Voice Actions (Google Search for Android)

Anytime you’re tired of typing, or you just feel like it, you can make a call, send an email, check the weather, find a good restaurant, and much, much more by speaking up and using Google Voice Search for Android.

Google Play Store

Moto G gives you easy access to more than one million apps on Google Play. Music, games, books, TV shows and movies, too. It’s all right there, at your fingertips.

Motorola Migrate

You don’t have to lose your stuff when you buy Moto G. Just move your photos, videos, SIM contacts and even your call and text history from your old Android phone in just a few steps. No wires needed.

Motorola Assist

Moto G recognises when you shouldn’t be bothered, like when you’re sleeping or in a meeting. After hours, it only lets important calls through. You can set actions and exceptions so they work exactly how you want them to.

M4DE Moto G

We asked designers from our favourite accessory brands to create cases in colours and styles made only for the Moto G.


Moto G has true wideband speech and CrystalTalk dual-mic noise cancellation that gets rid of noise, so you can hear the person you’re talking to and they can hear you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Google showing the competition how it's done 22 Nov 2013
By Bobinho
Size Name:8GB
I wanted to post this review to focus on the few negative points regarding this phone so that people are more aware about what they are buying. I feel that there is enough information about the positive aspects on this phone available so I will only discuss these briefly. You may be therefore asking why I gave this product 5 stars, the main reason being that, for me, the pros easily outweigh the cons and the price tag is incredibly low for a device of this quality.

I've been on the lookout for a new phone for a while now. I was originally considering getting a phone on contract which although is costly seemed like the best option, but then I heard that Google were releasing the moto g.
After watching countless videos on youtube I found it difficult to believe that a phone with these specs could retail at such a low price.

I received my handset yesterday and the first thing I noticed was how great the screen is. Forgetting the price for a second this screen can compete with any phone within the market, but when you take price into account you soon realise that you are getting more than your money's worth.
The main issues with the phone is that it doesn't have a micro sd card slot meaning that you can't expand the memory of the phone. This was a big concern for me but I decided to take the gamble anyway. Out of the box the phone comes with roughly 4.94gb of available memory. I have used roughly 0.5gb installing the apps I use on an everyday basis meaning I have just under 4.5gb remaining. If you use your phone as an mp3 player then this may be a problem and you would probably be better off buying the 16gb model. However, if you aren't a big gamer and only really use your phone for taking snaps and social networking then the 8gb model should suit your needs.

Please Note : My updated thoughts on the phone are mentioned right at the end. Thanks

Well I don't write reviews that often. So here I am once again ( the last time I wrote a review when the HTC One was launched and we all know what that phone was / is like ). Now that i had the Moto G for 4 days let me briefly explain the areas it excels in and where it doesn't.

Build Quality 5/5 :

Its simply amazing to see that a company can keep the cost of a handset as low as £129.99 ( Phones4U ) and yet end up making a very decent piece of kit. Right now I have the Moto G sitting next to me as I type this review on my iPad and it simply looks amazing. Made entirely from plastic ( polycarbonate ) it feels very nice and smooth in the hands. Screen is covered with Gorilla Glass 3 ( the latest and the most toughest of types ) which you normally find in high end handsets like the S4 & Note 3. Volume rocker and power buttons have chroming on them and they feel nice & Solid. It's got a curved back and just sits in your palm beautifully. Screen size is an ideal ( for most ppl ) at 4.5" and I love using this phone with one hand. I have an HTC One ( 4.7" ) and I do use it with one hand but using the Moto G with one hand is a different and a pleasant experience. In short if you are after a phone you can use with one hand comfortably and yet have a bigger screen then the iPhone then don't look beyond the Moto G.

Screen 5/5:

And by the way Moto G screen pixel density equals the latest iPhone 5S at 326 ppi ( pixel per inch ). For a cost as low as this it's mind boggling. Simply ridiculous and out of this world. Screen is stunning and the brightness is far too high for a normal eye.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best android phone EVER at this price ! 22 Nov 2013
By MaxsoundCarAudio Uk TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Size Name:8GB
Well I can honestly say that the following pointers are 100% true and at last we can have a phone at just £130 or even less that really works well !
Who has ever wondered when there will ever be a mobile phone that simply does everything as we want it to ?
Who has ever wondered why the heck high end mobile phones are so ridiculously expensive ?
Who has ever wondered ( sorry to go on lol ) when a manufacture will design a phone that gives us what we want at the right price ?
Well I`m happy to say and to my amazement that Google have actually done such a thing and made the Moto G to be near perfect I would think for most people anyway!
So many mobile phones do not have the listed below and at prices between £300 - £600 it`s pathetic !
The Moto G is just £155. or less maybe £130 and that`s sim free , no contract so lets have a good think about this because I can`t see how Google can do it but they have so well done because I myself am very fussy indeed when it comes to having the right mobile phone that simply does everything perfect and the Moto G does just that ! ( it`s only taken how many years ? lol )
1 x Battery life is very good indeed and getting through a full day with heavy usage and two days easy with light use maybe more !
2 x very loud rear and front speaker ( very clear as well ) The rear speaker really is loud and probably the loudest I`ve ever heard !
3 x LED Notification light on top front left of speaker ( a very high end looking led if I may say so )
4 x Very strong signal both wifi and 3g ( no 4g sorry but who cares lol )
5 x very nice quality premium feel to it and design along with very convenient volume up/down and lock buttons that work extremely well
6 x Pure yes pure android 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing phone for the money
Why splash out for a Samsung on an expensive contract when you can have this for the price of 6 months monthly fees. Fast performance, great screen and camera, simple to use.
