My Birthday was Friday March 8th (spent part of it at the Japan Festival). I managed to acquire a an awesome birthday gift a couple days before my actual birthday which I have been testing for the past two weeks! My new Moto G replaces my Samsung Galaxy S4 that was tragically lost while traversing Kingston’s public transport system and was unable to be recovered. I had to revert to old faithful (HTC Legend) for a while but now the Moto G is the smartphone boss in town. I promise to not lose this one ok?
The Moto G is a affordable smartphone that outperforms other phones that cost twice as much. Its no HTC One but for US$180 you get a 4.5 inch 720 x 1280 pixels screen, Quad-core 1.2 GHz CPU, Gorilla Glass, 1 GB RAM and the latest version of Android (Kitkat).

Below are some pictures taken with the Moto G’s camera straight from the phone and unmodified.
Affordable Android Smartphone
After a few days of usage I have had no major issues, no lag and it handles all that I have thrown at it so far without any hiccups. The Moto G comes highly recommended from me for persons who want a capable smartphone without sacrificing too much or investing a small fortune. Get the Moto G 8GB or Moto G 16GB version from Amazon for $180 and $200 respectively. Pay attention to the version you are buying, I got the Global GSM – 8GB version which works fine here in Jamaica. I may do a followup post in a couple weeks or months to update on how the Moto G is keeping up.
