Moto G Review: Conclusion
Based on the Moto G specs and the results of this and virtually any other Moto G review that’s been published to date, this is the best budget smartphone available. In fact, it’s competitive with many devices that are marketed — and priced — as premium smartphones.
As another example, consider this Fonearena Moto G review where the Motorola’s flagship Moto X smartphone beat its cheap smartphone by only 10% on the Quadrant benchmark test.
If you demand the highest possible processing power, tons of storage, a full HD (or better) display, a high-resolution camera or the ability to download data with the speed of LTE, then stick to the flagship smartphones. No matter how good it is, a cheap smartphone like the Moto G cuts a few too many corners for the power user.
But for everyone else — probably 80% of potential smartphone buyers — Motorola’s Moto G should be more than capable of covering their needs. When it comes to the best budget smartphone currently on the market, the Moto G is it. And that guaranteed KitKat upgrade will leave this cheap smartphone able to do things that many recent flagship Android devices (which won’t necessarily be getting the upgrade) can’t.
