Motorola Moto G review: When good phones go cheap

Florence Ion | Jan. 2, 2014
The Moto G has all the essentials of a smartphone—a stylish chassis, near-stock Android, and a sizable form-factor—and it only costs $179.

Bottom line
The Moto G is one of Motorola's smartest moves to date. It brings a lot of what low- to midrange smartphones don't usually offer in emerging markets: a sharp display, a customizable chassis, long-lasting battery life, and the latest version of Android. It's also extremely affordable, even for those markets where Apple and Samsung dominate. I just wish it took better photos.  

For a midrange phone, the Moto G is well-worth its measly price tag. And even if Motorola's venture into emerging markets will end up being a bit of a battle for the struggling company, its handset ought to set the precedent for what midrange phones should look, feel, and act like.
