Overview of Motorola Moto G 4G
This is the ORIGINAL Moto G 4G, (2014 edition) with a 4.5 inch screen.
The 2nd generation (2015) model with a 5 inch screen is available to order HERE.
The very popular Motorola Moto G just got better, thanks to the addition of 4G and a microSD memory card slot.
Aside from these two additions there is little to tell the two apart.
The Moto G 4G focuses on exceptional value for money and it certainly achieves this with a strong specification.
Running Android 4.4 KitKat - the Moto G benefits from all of Android's latest features.
Whether it be street level navigation, checking your email or sharing your data connection with other devices, the Moto G has something for the first time smartphone user and more experienced users alike.
Easy to personalise with apps from the Play Store along with a range of coloured cases and grip shells (sold separately) the Moto G 4G can easily be tweaked to look and feel the way you like it along with the apps you want.
The 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 chip from Qualcomm ensures super smooth performance and little chance of lag, so you do not have to wait for your phone to catch up with you.
A high definition 720p display offers a superb viewing experience and one that beats even more premium handsets. At 4.5 inches this provides a perfect resolution for browsing, playing games or watching videos on the go as well as being capable of being handled in one hand and carried comfortably in the pocket.
Motorola has barely touched the stock Android interface, although there are a few tweaks and additions. Motorola Assist runs in the background to create a profile of your user habits. This helps the Moto G anticipate your most used actions and save on processing power for your basic operations as the handset learns your habits.
Motorola Migrate has been included as a standard feature - this allows you to copy all of your old contacts, images, videos and even call/messaging history from your old Android phone.
The main camera app has been enhanced with Motorola's expertise, rather than embracing the Google app seen on Nexus devices. This allows for a number of extra scenes and features as well as options to tweak and post-edit images.
The 5 megapixel main camera is quite basic when compared to other devices, although it is still capable of taking more than acceptable images, and is just as good as any other at this price level. For quick snaps on the go, selfies or a night out, the Moto G camera is always ready to capture the moment.
If you want exceptional value for money then you can do considerably worse than opting for the Moto G 4G.
