4.0 out of 5 stars The Penny Pincher's Dream...Nearly, 1 July 2014
This review is from: Moto G 16GB SIM-Free Smartphone - Black (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
Let's face it; us budget spenders often don't get what we pay for with smartphones. It's not just about price, it's about value. And while we can often get the price we want, it's hard to get the latter as well. Not any more. Introducing the Moto G - the device that said "suck it" to the poor devices we've had to face due to price constraints. Offering an outstanding price and, finally, an equally so experience: the waiting is over. It's not without its cons, but this is the closest we've got to the dream.

PROs
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
+ Screen - The 720p IPS display aboard the Moto G is nothing short of beautiful, and not just for the price either. It's sharp, responsive and vibrant yet accurate.

+ Performance - The Moto G is very snappy. It easily flies through my daily taks and I'm yet to face any slowdowns in games either.

+ Design - Overall, I find the look of the Moto G attractive though of course that's controversial, so take it for what it's worth. The removable backs are a nice feature too for accesories.

+ Software - Though I have some gripes with the software, as you'll see in the "CONs", it's lovely to have KitKat and better yet; untouched by an OEM's skin.

+ Battery Life - I always get at least a full day of medium use, and two if usage is light.

CONs
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- Software WiFi Issues - After the latest software update, WiFi reception took a serious hit.

- Camera - Both front and back are not much better than you'd expect from a phone this price, unfortunately.

- Very Slight Build Quality Issues - May only effect my model, but the top right corner of the back creaks; minor annoyance.

Conclusion
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It'll come as no suprise that my overall opinions of the Moto G are positive. It has a few issues, but they're not significant enough to seriously tamper with the experience, or at least mine. I'd say it also is a better bargain than the Moto E so, by saving a little money, you're actually getting less value in my opion. Pick up a Moto G, and I doubt you'll regret it.

Thanks for reading, I hope it helped. :D
