It comes in a little box, no headphones, charger or other useless gadgets. It charges through standard mini usb which is provided.

It is also sim free, unlocked and uses micro sim cards, works perfectly with GiffGaff network I’m on.

motorola moto g specs

Having use much smaller HTC Desire from couple of years ago I thought it would be a bit to big but I was wrong, it fits pefectly in my hand (and I have quite small hands) and it is not heavy but at the same time it does not feel like cheap plastic phone, which it isn’t.

There is great selection of Motorola Moto G shells on the market to customise your device or you could always make your own DIY mobile phone case like I did (tutorial on our other blog).

I love it… it has everything you could want from a modern smartphone at a ridiculously low price. I’m most happy and surprised by the camera, it takes photos which I can share with my blog readers on Instagram, Facebook, Google+ or Twitter (check quality yourself) but also record videos of children and take photos good enough to print in case I don’t have my proper camera with me. You’d expect 8 GB internal memory to by reasonable for a under £150 phone, but Motorola goes much further by providing a micro SD slot for additional storage, up to 32 GB. It has enough space to install all the apps, music, and photos I needed for a long time and did I mention the price?

motorola moto g review camera

6 x 9 print size at 300dpi or 2000 px wide (twice average screen) for internet use at 72 dpi. This is photo taken indoors in natural light (harsh sunlight from the window through the blinds, hence the stripy shadows) unedited image, no colour correction or sharpening… it was sharp enough, even a bit too sharp to my liking.
