1. I think screen pixels dont matter after certain PPI. Infact, more the PPI, more smaller/thinner will the fonts look. Also, it takes more processing power to render those many pixels and it ends up being highly questionable on such small mobile displays.
I think its a smart move to add screen estate in lieu of a few PPI's.
2. The display should have been OLED, though I think IPS screen is good as well. Just that OLED's have a PUNCH in colors...
3. Card Slot is another great move. Though I doubt regular users will need the bump beyond 16 GB, its certainly a great +1 and takes off the tension of filling up the phone and checking for memory now and then, knowing that you can very well expand it.
4. Please comment on the 8 MP quality. GSM arena review awaited!
5. I am sure that 1 GB RAM is something which might not be liked by all. Need to see if the optimized Andoid version can keep the memory utilization in check. Unfortunately, Moto cannot control how other developers will write their apps (will they make their apps leak proof in terms of memory), so they could have very well added at least 512 MB more.
7. Smart move by Moto to have an LTE version of G as well.
Finally, its priced right. I am sure this triumphs all other aspects. The G is priced to hasten a tentative purchase decision to definitive. The assurance of a quality conscious company may tilt the tables in favor of Moto when G competes with its low cost rivals.
pixel should be more though it is 5'' screen even moto g has more then this 326ppi.
So,....the only difference between this edition and the 2013 edition is a half inch larger display, optional card slot, and a slightly better camera? Sorry, pass....
Even the Moto X, which is a solid phone, is a year behind it's competition. Look at the specs, they match phones released in spring of 2013. The only 2 companies that are really on top of their game are Samsung and LG.
I am not satisfied with the last improvement. It could be better. They only focused on screen size and camera. External memory option is provided that's a good improvement.
Ganesh, 05 Sep 2014I am really disappointed at commitments of moto g series. When 1gen released we got statement ... moreDude they already provided 4.4.4 (for moto E too) its latest android and a tag of surety for L also
adam, 05 Sep 2014well asus zenfone 5 lte is good than this g2 .. the ram and the price range is different compa... moreYou know nothing?!! zenfone 5 is not really great,the battery are consume more than other smartphone.. try to compare with other device..
in my opinion even though low specs and high price but the performance is really great, still i will buy this comparing to the high specs and low price but the performance not better.. so is not about the specs is about the performance...
well asus zenfone 5 lte is good than this g2 .. the ram and the price range is different compared to zenfone 5 .. asus still made a best budget high spec phone ...
I think Motorola is following crapy Samsung. Just big display and no other improvements not even battery lolz. What work of 8MP camera when u don't have battery for keep running your phone 😒.not to be successful like as past Moto G
Good in screen size but disappointing in PPI.
8 Mp primary & 2 MP secondary camera is very nice.
Battery is same..
I rather buy zenfone 5 that 500kl model. More ram. Others same spec with this new moto G2.
Can we Install Heavy Apps on Memory CArd directly ON THIS KITKAT MOTO ..Please help..
I am really disappointed at commitments of moto g series. When 1gen released we got statement "guaranteed upgrade" for android os but they stopped it nw and claiming the same statement for 2nd gen phone. Iow price is great deal but false commitment can break any deal.
Way too big, to buy. Moto G was big, but tolerable, than they make a phablet from G. I Am really disappointed.
No 4G on this phone? what? Why not? The Moto G2 was given 4G so why not on thos one? Disspointing.
