I have the LG 4X, which is very comparable to Moto G in terms of specs and I gotta say hardware list doesn't guarantee splendid performance at all, even with AOSP software.
Current Android versions, it's very clear, aren't - no, not optimized - BUILT for multi- cores. On more CPU-intensive tasks (games, unsupported codec video) my phone runs nearly exclusively at 1.5 GHz, the speed its Tegra 3 SoC reaches only when in single-core mode (in multi-core it tops at 1.4), according to BetterBatteryStats app. Also, while my 7 years old desktop Intel quad-core can run 4K videos with no problems at all (and there was not even a single thought of 4K when Q6600 came out), last year's phone plays just the sound with a black screen.
Since I'm not gonna perform complex operations, calculations, photo and video manipulation on my phone, I wonder when and where will all that raw CPU power going to manifest itself?
The UI inevitably lags after some weeks of usage, so it's obviously a software problem.
AnonD-207181, 17 Nov 2013Is there a LED notifier in Moto G?yes there is a led notification light on top beside front camera...
AnonD-207110, 17 Nov 2013Go for Lumia 520... Better performance than this are u kidding or what????.....it is much better than 520...
AnonD-207110, 17 Nov 2013Go for Lumia 520... Better performance than this says who. u? lol
"no expandable memory" could be compensated a bit by having USB OTG...
does it support USB OTG?
The new standard for cheap android devices. Instead of a crappy cheap samsung you can now have a nice motorola.

I own a Lumia 520. But Moto G is way better and probably will be a little bit more costly too...
it hold 720p display with incredible ppi, good quad core snapdragon CPU,a front camera and rear camera with led flash and android which is now better than windows phone(also depends on personal preference),and moto g is highly optimized.
the only draw back I see is that lack of sd card slot.
but if your highly willing to choose a WP then wait for Lumia 525 or 625 it rumoured to come out with a 1GB ram. WP with a ram of 512mb is not good , it work smooth but there is alot app incompatibility especially games, most games require 1GB or more ram.
Please all go and email Motorola that release this phone in US with some good 8mp sensor and 1.5gb ram. ! May be they male it for any carrier in US so we can get best of moto g.!
woud you like somone the posted battery test, benchmarks, games, and more applications on video or in youtube .... :)
