Motorola Moto G (2015) is a mid level Android phone released two years ago, coming with a good CPU running at 1.4 GHz, a good size 5-inches multi-touch capacitive screen, and 2 cameras, a 13 megapixels back side camera and a 5 MP front-facing camera.

Motorola decided to build this cellphone using a good processor running at 1.4 gigahertz, included in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 8916 system chip with a great 2 GB of RAM memory. A nice point of this cellphone is its big 16 GB internal storage memory and a slot for an SD memory card, allowing the user to store hundreds of applications and games without any problem.

Motorola made a very good design job making this cellphone weight only 5.47 ounces. This cellphone is available in 2 different color options, black and white. Regarding its body design materials, this phone is mostly created with plastic. Even though this phone just has 5.59" long and 2.85" wide, it manages to hold a 5 inches display.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 13 MP back facing camera and a 5 MP front side camera. It is capable of filming 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 30 frames per second. Additionally, the camera has some useful characteristics: flash, face detection shooting, auto-focus, geo tagging and HDR mode.

This cellphone is equipped with a good looking 5-inches screen with a 1280 x 720 (HD) resolution, giving this cellphone a very nice graphical experience. Its screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and has multi-touch detection.

This cellphone provides Wi-Fi capability (and it can provide it to other devices around, as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE) high speed connection type or 3G fast connectivity, over HSPA, HSUPA and EDGE technologies. The uses a Micro SIM card for GSM networks and it works with both GSM and CDMA networks.

This cellphone uses a 2470 mAh large non-replaceable battery, enough to provide this phone with a great battery duration. An issue to evaluate is that this phone's battery isn't removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts losing capacity, while with its 2470 mAh you will probably discard this phone before it becomes an issue.

The also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (allows communication with other bluetooth cellphones and accessories), GPS Localization and NFC (Near Field Communication), and some sensors likeLight Sensor, Proximity Sensor and Accelerometer.

Motorola offers the Motorola Moto G (2015) for about $ 249, quite close to other same level phones. This phone is probably a great option for you if you are looking for a cellphone to mostly use social networks and internet browsing or need a work phone.
