Motorola announces new Moto G

Motorola Moto G (2014)

Along with a new Moto X, Motorola today unveiled the successor to its very successful mid-level Moto G smartphone. Also called the Moto G or Moto G (2nd generation), it remains what Motorola calls “An exceptional phone at an exceptional price.”

While some specifications remain unchanged, Motorola has opted to go with a larger and better display albeit still offering a 720p resolution and a better camera. The addition of microSD card support is also a welcome change. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor remains unchanged but it has proven to be a more than adequate one that should handle with ease whatever is thrown at it except perhaps for some more demanding games.
