Motorola Moto G: Android KitKat Goodness For Less

For all the super-powerful flagship Android handsets out there, the OS gained popularity because it’s traditionally been a cheaper alternative to the priciness of Apple’s iPhone. With that in mind, here’s the Motorola Moto G.

So here’s the spec breakdown: The phone has a 4.5-inch 1280×720 (329 PPI) display. It runs the “newest” Snapdragon 400 processor clocked at 1.2GHz. By the time the phone hits the US, it will come running Android 4.4 KitKat. The 8GB Moto G will be $US180. The 16GB model will go for $US200.

The Moto G will roll out over the next few weeks to Latin America, Europe, Canada, and parts of Asia. It will hit the US in early 2014. There’s no word on an Australian release date.

Downsides of the phone are that it doesn’t have LTE support and it doesn’t have always-on listening like the Moto X does. There’s also a lot we don’t know, like details about the phone’s dual cameras.

Now, the Moto G doesn’t exactly come loaded with mega specs, but they’re also hardly laughable. And, for the price, it’s going to be hard option to argue with. [Motorola]
