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.

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.

I purchased this phone a few months ago, so I think it's fair to write a review now that I've lived with it for a while, It's a great phone for the price as many others have said, its quick with apps and going through the menus, theres no sign of sluggishness especially if you download an app which clears up your useless RAM, but there are a few 'bugs' still lingering here and there, for example the music app that comes with the phone can stick on screens and become so unresponsive that you have to close it and reopen it again, nothing major.

Last week I actually dropped it into a pond and it sat there for around 10 minutes at the bottom of a muddy pond before I managed to fetch it out, the thing was still actually switched on? what annoyed me is that I couldn't take the battery out so the phone kept restarting with water inside it, not good at all, I got home and dried it by literally leaving it inches away (not inside) from a cooking oven and continuously turned it over every 10 minutes, half an hour later I managed to switch it off and a few hours later it was completely dry, I turned it on and it worked flawlessly, so never give up on a wet phone! especially this little trooper.

build quality is amazing no sign of scratches on the cover and the screen still looks brand new, I've not even bothered with a screen protector. the cover is a matte rubber/plastic which you cant scratch, and the screen has some kind of coating which is scratch resistant, I can see this being a back up phone for a few years if it carries on with this reliability.

5.0 out of 5 stars my first smart phone 14 April 2014
Size Name:16GB|Verified Purchase
and it's all going very well. Startup was a breeze and I was on my gmail account in seconds. I didn't really know what to expect but it's quite intuitive and although the manual is good and comprehensive it's almost easier to find things out on the phone itself...

It's not the lightest phone around but it fits very comfortably in my hand and the screen is beautifully clear. With light use the battery is lasting more than a week and it's quick to recharge. Don't know if I'll regret not having 4G but for the price and with current (localised) 4G coverage I'm very happy for now...

5.0 out of 5 stars Best bang for your buck 16 Feb 2014
Size Name:16GB
Motorola sets the standard for best value android smartphone, and they do it in style!

The Moto G's stylish and top notch quality do not reflect the low selling price. In fact it does feel and perform like a much more expensive phone.

Premium finish, with a very responsive touch screen and zippy performance make for a real winner. The 2070mAh Battery life is very good thanks to the low consumption quad core processor.
Being a best seller we are spoilt for choice as far as accessories, with a vast array of battery covers and protective cases. The OTG (On The Go) cable connection support means that USB sticks/drives can expand the memory of this little gem.

This is the 16GB version, which is the highest capacity on offer.

- Fast 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 Quad Core Processor
- Lovely 4.5" 720p (329ppi) screen
- Smooth scrolling and pinch to zoom
- Robust construction, stylish, looks and feels premium quality
- Proximity and ambient light sensor
- Notification Led which I find so useful, as it indicates missed calls and messages
- Low power Bluetooth 4.0
- Applicative proprietary Motorola apps: Camera offering HDR, slow motion, panorama and flash; Motorola Assist, Migrate and Translate
- Gorilla Glass 3, which is very strong and virtually scratch proof
- Water-Repellent Coating
- Great sound quality, very loud with no distortion at high volume
- Wi-Fi 802.
