There are a few things to consider before you buy the Moto G. There is currently no LTE or CDMA support, so the phone won't be compatible with Verizon or Sprint any time soon, and you won't have access to LTE speeds. Also, with smartphone processors becoming faster, powerful, and more energy efficient, the Snapdragon 400 may start to see its age very soon.
Still, this is one of those inexpensive phones I wouldn't mind using on a day-to-day basis, even without the super high-resolution display or the Moto X's always-on capabilities. If you just need a smartphone to get the job done, the Moto G will do it for you, and it will do it right every time.
