Moto G by Motorola Smartphone

Motorola today introduced a powerful, low-cost, no-contract, unlocked smartphone for $179 (8GB) or $199 (16GB) that aims to provide the features and quality of high-end smartphone at a third of the cost. The premium-quality phone offers a 4.5-inch HD display, the newest Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor featuring a quad-core CPU, with Android 4.3 Jellybean. More importantly, Motorola is guaranteeing an upgrade to Android 4.4 KitKat at the beginning of 2014, so the phone doesn’t become obsolete and can continue to run the latest apps.

Moto G offers color customization with a removable curved back cover and 19 customization options, including interchangeable Motorola Shells and Flip Shells in seven colors as well as Grip Shells in five colors.

The Moto G is built on pure Android, which should make it work well with Google services — Gmail, YouTube, Google Maps, Chrome and Hangouts, plus 65GB of storage on Google Drive. Motorola also claims all-day batter-life, a high quality 5-megapixel camera, along with FM radio capability.

Another consumer-friendly feature is Motorola Migrate, which should wirelessly transfer your photos, videos, SIM contacts and even your call and text history from your old Android phone to a new Moto G.
