Vodafone has cut the price of the well reviewed Motorola Moto G, offering cost-conscious consumers some high-spec features and rather a lot of smartphone for not much outlay.
The carrier has trimmed £35 off the asking price of the Android-powered handset, which has also found favour with consumers in the market for a ‘second’ phone’, on pay as you go. That means you can now pick it up for £100, provided you also buy £10 of Vodafone credit.
If you're more of a monthly-contract person, Vodafone is selling the handset from £13 per month over a two-year term. Monthly allowances on this tariff are 100 minutes, unlimited texts and 100MB of data.
Touted by some as a game-changer because it purportedly puts an end to the days when cheap smartphones were stripped down versions of more illustrious models, the Moto G is home to an expansive 4.5-inch HD edge-to-edge screen with 329 pixels per inch. That’s actually a smidgen higher than the iPhone 5S’s 326ppi.
A quad-core processor is also on board to keep things running smoothly, alongside a five-megapixel front-facing camera and a secondary 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera for those all-important selfies and video calls.
Unlike other UK networks, whose Moto G handsets are still on the 4.3 version of Android, Vodafone has updated the Moto G with the latest 4.4 version of Google’s Android operating system.
The promotion on the Moto G is part of Vodafone’s wider pay as you go campaign which is focussed on cheaper smartphones and includes the Samsung Galaxy Fame for £75 and the own-brand Vodafone Smart Mini for £45. Both prices apply when bought with a £10 top up.
