Motorola Moto G powers a stunning 4.5-inch HD display (329 ppi), 1GB of RAM, 8GB to 16GB of storage, a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor and Android 4.4 KitKat operating system on the board. The best thing is that the handset comes with the removable shell. That means you have the option to customize its back panel according to your own choice.
The handset also supports for USB OTG which will let you to connect an external HDD or flash drive for accessing data. Moreover Google is also offering 50GB of free Drive space online for 2 years which is also great. Its currently the best entry-level handset around.
On the back side there’s a 5.0MP rear camera with an LED flash, a speaker grille to the left of the camera and company’s logo in the center.
The top edge houses a 3.5mm head phone port and the bottom edge has a microUSB port which can be used either for charging or connecting the handset to the computer.
Its very easy to remove the back cover of Moto G, you just have to peel it with your nails. When you’ll remove its back shell you’ll see a non-removable 2070 mAh of battery which is smaller than that we have seen in Moto X. But Moto G still gives a much better battery life than Moto X. We are really impressed with the battery life of this handset.
Coming to display Motorola Moto G features a stunning 4.5-inch HD display with pixel density of 329 ppi. Honestly speaking I was surprised at just how good the display of the Moto G is, contemplating the cost of the device. The color accuracy and saturation is also good and you will have no objection with the display of this affordable device.
As we mentioned earlier, the front area is mostly covered by 4.5-inches screen, Moto G features on-screen buttons instead of capacitive buttons. The on-screen button covers 55.8 square centimeters of area, and you will left with 4.2-inches usable space. Now a days almost every high-end smartphone packs a 5-inch display screen but the Moto G’s screen real estate isn’t huge.
Under the hood there’s a 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor same as that we have seen in HTC One mini. But there are some noteworthy differences between these two handsets: the HTC One mini uses the LTE-enabled MSM8930, while the Moto G uses the HSPA+ only MSM8226.
Now coming to the graphics, the Moto G comes with an Adreno 305 GPU running at 450 MHz, plus an LPDDR2 memory controller, and single-band Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS+GLONASS and 21 Mbps HSPA+ radios. Moreover there’s a 1GB of RAM on the board.
On the back side there’s a 5-megapixel rear camera with an LED flash. The sensor is Aptina’s AR0543 1/4” CMOS with a pixel size of 1.4 μm, paired with a 37mm (effective) f/2.4 lens unit.
