Motorola Moto G is a mid level Android phone released some years ago, in 2013, equipped with a 4.5 inches screen, a good performance Quad-Core processor speeding at 1200 megahertz, and 2 cameras, a 5 megapixels back-facing camera and a 1.3 MP front facing camera.

Even though the is only 5.11 inches long and 2.59" wide, it's able to fit a a 4.5" screen. This phone's thickness of 0.46" is a little far from nowadays standards, but it still feels comfortable in the hand. Motorola is offering this cellphone in a nice range of color variations, black, pink, yellow, blue, red and white. It seems like Motorola didn't care about the weight in this 5.04 ounces cellphone.

Motorola decided to equip this device using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chip, which holds a powerful 1.2 gigahertz Quad-Core processing unit and 1 GB of RAM memory. Collaborating with graphic calculations, this phone also uses a 450 MHz Adreno 305 GPU. This device comes with an 8 GB quite big internal memory and though it doesn't have an SD card slot, it is enough to install a couple hundred apps, but it may not be enough if you are planning to install a couple of the largest games currently available or taking tons of pictures and videos.

This phone features two cameras, a 5 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 1.3 megapixels front facing camera. It is capable of filming videos up to 1280x720 (HD) at 30 frames per second. To complete the camera, it also features a few useful characteristics like flash, fast burst mode, auto-focus, geo tagging and HDR mode.

Motorola packed this device with a incredible 4.5-inches screen, and a 1280 x 720 (HD) resolution, which makes it impossible to even see the pixels taking part of the screen. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multi touch gestures.

The has Wi-Fi connectivity (and it can share it with other devices around, acting as a modem or router), 4G (HSPA+) internet connection, that is not as fast as LTE-A or LTE networks or the fastest 3G connection type, supported by HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS, EV-DO A and EDGE technologies. The uses a SIM card for GSM networks and it can use both CDMA and GSM.

This phone also includes some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS Navigation and Near Field Communication (NFC), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

This phone counts with a great 2070 mAh Li-Ion battery, enough to provide this phone with an incredible battery life.

Motorola is selling the for just $ 99, which is a real bargain for comparing with other similar devices. This device is very appropiate if you want it mostly for social networks and internet browsing. Motorola sells this cellphone with USB cable and Quick start guide.
