The Motorola Moto G smartphone has often been touted as an excellent phone that is well priced and also well equipped. It may not have all of the bells and whistles that come with a flagship smartphone, but it is still good enough for a lot of daily uses.It is an incredibly simple looking smartphone that delivers a no nonsense user experience throughout its use, serving as something more of a tool tpo help you rather than something you have to worry about.
Every Moto G released has always been about its functionality over its form. It is a handsome looking smartphone, no doubt, but it also has enhancements to help us get through a day. The Moto G 3rdGeneration has advanced water resistance with an IPX7 rating for splashes and accidental drops into water – it is not to say that you can swim with it however. If you drop it in a sink with water, just pick it up and dry it off. The Moto G 4thGeneration on the other hand has water repellent properties that prevents water or liquid damage from spills, splashes, or the rain.
The displays of Moto G smartphones are also all incredibly tough and strong. And we have Corning's Gorilla Glass to thank for that. Corning Gorilla Glass is a really strong display that is used in many smartphones today. It provides a strong durable edge-to-edge glass to protect the Moto G's display from scratches and scuffs in our day to day life.
The rear shells of Moto G smartphones are also easily replaceable with a bevy of other colors. In the event that your rear shell is damaged or you just want to express your style, just pull it off and snap on a new one.
TheMoto G 4thGeneration is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 chipset with a Adreno 405 GPU. This octa-core processor lets you keep your active and fast-paced lifestyle without any slowdowns – it might help you to do things even faster! Paired with a generous 2GB of RAM, the Moto G can run multiple applications and tasks at the same time and allow you to switch between them with ease.
If you are also one of those power users who constantly use up your smartphone's battery life, you will appreciate the TurboPower charging of the Moto G which allows you to charge the phone up quickly, gaining up to an extra 6 hours of power within 15 minutes of charge time.
