Moto G, Motorola’s all time best selling smartphone now has gone updated with more new features and has included something bigger, faster and stronger. Along with the hardware details they also revealed the price ($179.990) and the availability. According to the Motorola the device will first goes live today in India, France, UK. Brazil, Spain and in Germany.
Motorola plans to have the Moto G available in over a dozen countries and through numerous carrier partners worldwide.
The Moto G was first launched in November 2013 under the mid-range smartphone along with the Moto X and within 3 months after the launch Motorola had declared this as best selling smartphone. Undoubtedly, people across the world has appreciated the device and the build quality which Motorola has packed with Moto G and this time also we were also expecting the same.
According to the hardware of advanced Moto G or might you can say 2014 edition of Moto G didn’t added much and pack almost same hardware compared to the 2013 variant. A Snapdragon 400 processor, 1 GB od RAM and only 3G (HSPA+) supportable and also by design the device looks almost similar.
The main remarkable difference which we have seen is the display and sheer size of the new Moto G. Stepping up from a 4.5-inch display, it now has a 5-inch display at the same 720p resolution. That’s good for 294 ppi.
Moving over to the next big changes, Motorola has offered front-facing stereo speakers to the Moto G. However, this isn’t BoomSound, but you’re going to get a really better experience watching videos or playing any music on this phone than the original one.
In camera also there have some up-gradation as it now has included 8 MP main shooter and 2 MP as a front facing replacing the 5 MP and 1.3 MP cameras previously.
As an external bonus, Motorola has also made the new Moto G water resistant, with a so-called “coating” around the phone that keeps it safe from accidental spills. As of now they won’t put any specific IP rating on it, but any increased resistance to water over “none” is a welcomed addition.
