2014's Moto G is bigger, bolder and just might be the best value smartphone around.
In the market for a great smartphone at a great price? With a crisp, expansive display, stunning stereo sound and Android 4.4, the staggeringly great Moto G might just have your name on it.
Budget smartphones traditionally mean cramped, small screens. But that's not the case with the Motorola Moto G. Its huge 720p HD 5-inch screen goes toe-to-toe with much more costly handsets when it comes to sheer size.
That means it's really great for video and browsing on the move. And it delivers impressive picture quality as well, so your snaps and home movies will look great too.
And the feeling that you're getting chic on the cheap doesn't stop there. Because the Moto G is fitted with a sinewy quad-core processor, it zips along supremely fast too. The upshot is that you'll be whizzing through homescreens and menus at supreme speeds.
Better still, all that power means the Moto G can handle multi-tasking with aplomb and won't slow down when you're playing games, listening to music and uploading some photos simultaneously. The result is you'll have more time to do whatever it is that floats your boat.
Imaging is another one of this handset's strong suits. At the rear, you'll find an eight-megapixel camera that's just right for casual snapping. And around the front, you'll find a two-megapixel camera for selfies.
Powered by a stripped down, easy to use version of Android 4.4 (an upgrade to the next major new version of Google's software is guaranteed too), the Moto G also features a range of thousands of apps and games to select from at the Google Play store.
Other features of the Moto G include a long-life 2070 mAh battery, front-facing speakers, a robust Corning Gorilla Glass 3 screen, 8GB of on board storage and the option to boost this by up to 32GB by adding a microSD card.
