Moto G – The Hardware

First, we take a look at the hardware of the new Moto G (16 GB dual SIM) which is currently available online. The screen is impressive to look at, with a standard 4.5 inch display with Corning Gorilla Glass which looks neat. The back panel of the phone is not of cheap quality as we’d notice in most Samsung phones of the same price range. In fact, it’s got quite a good grip, and isn’t flimsy once you try to open the back panel. Additionally, the phone is water repellent to a certain extent.

At startup, you can’t help but notice the crisp detailed quality of the 4.5 inch IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, as the Moto G works with 329 PPI (pixels per inch). Moto G comes with Android OS, v4.3 (Jelly Bean) out of the box,  upgradable to v4.4.2 (KitKat).The Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 processor and Qualcomm MSM8226 Snapdragon 400 chipset, along with Adeno 305 GPU, ensure that the phone runs smoothly without much lags, even while playing high-resolution games or multi-tasking. Net reviews say that it is definitely providing a more enjoyable experience when viewing content on the internet.

 Other Peripherals

The 5 MP rearcamera isn’t impressive, but renders decent images in good light conditions. Not advisable for low-light photography, especially with limited photography options on the rear camera. The 1.3 MP front camera works just fine for video calling and selfies. The camera also records videos at 720p@30fps which seems good.

The speaker volumes are  good for both media as well as calling. Not something you’d rave about, but definitely not something you’d whine about either.

Moto G packs in more than a punch for the price it comes at. You may complain about the non-removable battery (2070 mAh with an endurance rating of 54 hours), or about the fact that the memory isn’t expandable, but then, you’re getting all this for around $250. The competition will take some time to come up with an answer to this phone.
