The Motorola Moto G has landed, and it’s crazy cheap. The mid-range device will start from $179 unlocked when it launches in January 2014 in the United States, a moment that competitors will surely watch nervously.
The device comes with mid-range specifications and a very attractive (for its price) display. An added bonus is the nearly stock Android experience, and the Android 4.4 KitKat update that Motorola promised will come by January next year.
Check out the official Moto G promo video from Motorola and an press image gallery.
The Moto G sure looks good for its price tag, and the specs don’t look that bad either. Are you interested?
RAM doesn’t cost much, so why not 2Gb?
According to Google, KitKat should be able to run with at least 512MB RAM, but who knows :P
But apps still require RAM
funny, the iphone is able to do it with 1GB, and 4.4 is designed to use 512mb or ram. . . afaik, that includes for the apps.
Nonetheless, that’s not the point. This is a price point device, and it’s pretty darn good for the price.
There’s the N5 for the rest of us.
iOs runs only one app in the background
Now we are going to start bitchin’? As if this price isn’t great for what the device is?
I think he’s more like wondering than bitching. I am worried about the 1GB Ram too.. it wouldn’t hurt to add 1GB more and bump the price a few bucks.
But again for this price its fine.
afaik. . . 4.4 takes apps into consideration and they can run with 512mb. . . thus, I don’t think apps are a problem — just won’t load as much into ram.
That seems to be the case with 4.4 yeah. Still it wouldn’t hurt for 1GB more ram. For what its worth, I got 1 GB ram in mine and works fine with vanilla, but again i am not a “heavy” user. I guess we’ll see. Still, kudos for the price!
Yea bitching… People complain about Nexus 5 too plus if something’s cheap it doesn’t mean you can’t complain a little
OK. . . let’s get it out of our systems. . .
NO SD?!?!? I’m not buying.
16GB max. . . total crap!
2070 battery??? where’s the 3,000+
another craptastic android camera!
RAM! RAM! RAM! RAM! RAM! RAM!
Where’s the 1080p!!!!!
S400. . . .LMAO!!!
NOT future proof!!!! total crap!
etc. . .
do we all feel better now?
You seriously need to calm down. No need to be such a fanboy
I’m calm. . . not a fanboy at all. . .
I rag on every company and OS equally, but when they do something everyone has been asking them to do I don’t pick at them and piss and moan about the little things. I applaud them for finally doing something close to what we’ve been asking for.
and the comment is pure sarcasm. . . just covering what ever android fanboi complains about on each and every release. . . regardless of how ridiculous the complaint actually is.
Yet another strong argument for the sarcasm mark
… what’s that supposed to be lol
Punctuation to express sarcasm. I’m trying to popularise it to make the internet a more peaceful place :-)
Doesn’t look too bad. I can only hope the camera’s decent enough (as in, Nexus 4 level) despite it being only 5MP. Shame about the graphic chip being the paltry Adreno 225 but heck, this is a cheap device.
Specs wise it makes me think about something in-between a Galaxy Nexus and a Nexus 4.
exactly. . . a decent, new device that’s an upgrade from the gNexus, which is a decent device, excluding verizon’s, that would be a great daily driver for the great majority of “average users” around the world.
definitely a device I could recommend to many!
Does anyone here have a wallpaper shown above in the article? Thanks, cheers!
for its price its a good phone we dont get that features at that price where we dont have carrier subsidy
a good advert from and android manufacturer! whats going on…..
How does it compare to a Razr? My girlfriend needs a new phone, Razr is having issues and this could make a good Xmas present.
