For the last couple of years, Motorola have been challenging both the industry and consumer ideas of what it means to produce a good smartphone.

Since it originally launched, the Moto G range has offered durable design and quality performance at an incredibly attractive price. Now, ready for the Summer of 2015, the 3rd generation model can redefine this category once more.

High Quality Camera

Traditionally tricky to do well on more affordable phones, the new Moto G 3rd Gen delivers with a high-resolution 13 megapixel module.

You also benefit from the f2.0 lens for better low-light performance than previous Moto Gs, as well as a powerful dual LED flash for colour balancing.

High Dynamic Range (HDR) also helps you capture the deep differences in contrast that can occur outside or in brightly lit environments.

As an added bonus, you'll also find the front-facing camera has been upgraded to 5MP - perfect for selfies and video calls.

Durability in Design

One thing you don't want to worry about is damaging your phone. Even if the new Moto G costs you far less than the expensive flagship devices from other manufacturers, it's still good news to hear it has been built with solidity in mind.

A major update to the design is the inclusion of an IPx7 rating - this makes the Moto G water and dust resistant - you can submerge it in up to a metre of fresh water for up to 30 minutes.

This makes it perfectly safe to take your phone out in the rain, and you don't have to worry if it drops in a puddle or gets covered by an accidental spill in the kitchen!

On top of this, you'll find the main screen of the Moto G is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. This resists many of the day-to-day scuffs and scratches that can affect a phone screen throughout its life.

Finally the battery on the Moto G 3rd Generation has been upped to 2,470 mAh, making it ready for a full day and maybe a little bit more.

Unexpected Performance

When a phone is well under £200, you don't often associate it with top performance - the Moto G though has always been about bucking that trend.

In 2015's G, there is a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor, advanced Adreno graphics and a sharp 720p high definition 5 inch display.

Not only this, you'll also get 4G LTE support as standard (dependent on network provider), so you're ready for high speed downloads and streaming on the move.

Quick Customisation

Just like older Moto G smartphones, Motorola have a great range of coloured back panel Shells.

These can be quickly applied to add a bit of extra colour or life to your Moto G. The Flip Shell has the added bonus of protecting the screen too.
