Moto G (3rd Gen) Review

But there is something different about the new Moto G. Not only is it the 3rd version of Motorola’s most successful phone of all time, but it’s also impossible to ignore. This is a sub-$200 phone that bests many $400 and above phones in performance, battery life, and style.

With it’s … 2470mAh battery, this phone just goes and goes and goes

Holding this phone reminds me a lot of the original Moto X in that its curves melt into your palm, all areas of the screen are reachable with one handed use, and it isn’t so thin that it becomes difficult to hold. There is a slight texture to the (replaceable) back side, along with a somewhat sticky phone frame that both help it from slipping around in your hand. The power and volume button places are in their proper spots and not at all confusing. And the camera housing, with dimple, and flash add some much needed flair.

Overall, this phone is refreshing in that it’s not an oversized behemoth, but it’s just big enough that it feels like a 2015 phone.

This isn’t the best camera you will find in a phone, but it might be the best you will find in a $200 phone. Motorola, a company that almost always disappoints in the camera department, appears to be figuring things out. Not only did they express a major desire and focus for putting out the best smartphone camera around in the new Moto X Pure Edition, they seem to have spent some quality time with the Moto G’s shooter as well.

You are looking at shots taken with a 13MP f/2.0 camera that includes pretty quick auto focus, 1080p video, slow motion shooting, burst mode, and auto HDR.

As has been the case since dating back to the original Moto X, Motorola is continuing to push a “pure” Android experience that is accompanied by their own suite of Moto software on the Moto G (3rd gen). Everything here is as Google would want it, but then Motorola adds on pure awesomeness, like Moto Display, Actions, and Assist. We’ve talked on countless occasions about how Moto Display is one of the few game-changing software add-ons introduced in years, so we won’t bore you with that here. Just know that it’s as good as ever, even with the LCD display in the Moto G.

The phone comes loaded with Google’s launcher, the stock dialer and app drawer, familiar notification and quick settings shade, and system settings are in the right place. If you know Android, at least the stock kind, everything is where you expect it to be. Because of that, and because Motorola has become increasingly good at tightening up performance, the software experience is one of the best (if not the) in the business even on a mid-range phone like this.

I don’t really know what else to say, other than, this is how Android is supposed to be. This is the proper way to improve upon Google’s mobile operating system.

Moto G (late 2015) review

The Good The new Moto G has improved design, water resistance and a stepped-up camera. The design and hand feel are great, and the battery lasts more than a full day.

When I think of what I want in an everyday phone, I think of battery life, camera, how it feels, and how durable it is. And yeah, how the screen looks. That’s what pretty great about Motorola’s latest update to its midrange budget smartphone, the Moto G: it’s a do-pretty-much-everything-you-need, 5-inch Android smartphone…that costs less than half of your average premium handset.

It’s the lines and curves of the G that make it feel special. Yes, it’s a plastic design, but the way it all comes together feels satisfying. Sure, the frame is plastic. But from a distance (and even in the hand), it feels nicer than older G models. I used to love the 2013 Moto X for its curved design that fit neatly in my palm. The new Moto G has that feel, but with a slightly larger screen and body. In a lot of ways, it also reminds me of the Nexus 5 .

Even though it has a 5-inch screen, this phone feels hand- and pocket-friendly. It’s a good medium-size phone by today’s gargantuan standards. The front edge-to-edge Gorilla Glass looks sharp, too. I did, however, already ding a plastic corner a bit.

The 720p display looks bright and crisp – you probably won’t notice that it isn’t higher-res, because at 294 pixels per inch, this still feels HD (pixel count is much lower than on the 1080p HD Alcatel Idol 3). And for a budget phone, the colors and clarity look great (the only issue: turning to landscape mode when you have sunglasses on creates huge polarization). The front-facing speakers are pretty loud, too,

Almost feels like a Nexus phone.
