Motorola has unveiled this year’s take on its budget-priced Moto G, bringing compatibility with its Moto Maker customisation system to the range for the first time as well as support for super-fast LTE 4G.
In keeping with earlier Moto G handsets, the 2015 model teams the sort of spec sheet you might expect on a mid-to-higher-end smartphone with a starting price point of £159.
That gets you a 13-megapixel rear camera, an ‘all-day’ battery and a handset that’s IPX7-certified for water-resistance. This means it can be submerged in up to one metre of water for up to half an hour and come out right as rain.
It also features a five-inch screen fashioned from Corning Gorilla Glass, a stripped down version of Android Lollipop and 8GB of storage.
Shell out £209 and you get all the above and 16GB of storage.
But perhaps the biggest sell for the new Moto G is support for the Moto Maker online design and customisation service.
Previously reserved for the higher-end Moto X range, this lets you choose the colours, memory and accents of your phone.
Opt to get creative with it and you’re looking at a minimum outlay of £179 for the phone and any customisations you make.
