A tasty little Black Friday treat arrived on our doorstep today, so even though we’re sitting in the middle of a long holiday weekend, we couldn’t hold back and decided to unbox it. Yessir, here is our first look at the Moto G by Motorola, an incredibly inexpensive phone targeted at emerging and prepaid markets. (more…)
Motorola surprised us somewhat yesterday when they announced that their ultra-affordable phone, the Moto G, was now available in the U.S. as a GSM phone. Without a contract at $179 for the 8GB model, and $199 for the 16GB model, this might be the best deal in the mobile industry. Sure, the phone doesn’t have LTE, but most HSPA+ networks are plenty fast these days, just ask Nexus 4 owners how they’ve held up over the last year. (more…)
A couple of weeks back, Motorola stole smartphone headlines with the announcement of its Moto G, an ultra-affordable prepaid phone that would land on U.S. shores. At $179 for the 8GB version, you are looking at a smartphone that still has specs to compete and are good enough to provide you with a decent Android experience, yet won’t be tied to contracts or subsidy pricing. The Nexus 5 at $349 is thought to be a steal in this industry, but the Moto G might just be highway robbery. (more…)
Motorola’s incredibly affordable Moto G may not blow minds with a spec sheet, but it’s certainly a phone that should grab the world’s attention. It’s insanely cheap at just $179 for the 8GB model, and that’s without a contract. But it’s also no slouch thanks to a quad-core processor, HD display, decent sized battery, and 5MP camera. Below, we’ve got the full details. (more…)
This morning, Motorola officially unveiled their new smartphone dubbed the Moto G. It’s every bit as mid-range as we expected it to be because that’s exactly the point. Motorola doesn’t think that off-contract buyers of smartphones should have to pay $600 to enjoy a premium experience that’s capable of running the latest apps and versions of Android. With Moto G, you are looking at a phone with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, HD display, and a price starting at $179 full retail. Yes, we’re now talking sub-$200 for a smartphone. (more…)
Motorola plans on introducing the world to the Moto G tomorrow morning, but unfortunately for them, a few retailers jumped the gun today. Appearing on multiple UK e-retailer sites, including Amazon, press renders of the G and even the full spec sheet is now public information. Sucks for Moto, but great for us. (more…)
Earlier this week, Motorola sent out a “save the date” for November 13, the day they will unveil their next phone called the Moto G. Today, they have given us an exact time and place to join in on the phone’s unveiling: 6AM Pacific (9AM ET) via Google+ event. And that’s pretty much it. The event will be held in Sao Paulo, Brazil, a sign that likely points toward this being Motorola’s ultra-affordable global offering.
We already think we know almost all of the specs of this mid-range phone, so now we simply sit back and wait for a price.

We cannot forget that in the middle of the Nexus 5 madness last week, we came across multiple leaks for Motorola’s new device, the Moto G. Motorola had its trademark leaked, spec list exposed and we think we even know the price of the phone as well. Early this morning they decided to make it official by telling us to make sure our calendars are clear on November 13. (more…)
