Will it compare to the Samsung Galaxy S5 or high end Nokia Luminas? Nope, but it works just fine for posting to Facebook, instagram, and such. The shutter is slow, but in good lighting you can get good pictures. As a real example, myself and two friends were at a festival earlier this year. The sun was bright. My pictures were coming out quite a bit better than my friend with his Note 3. My other friend had a Samsung Galaxy S4, and my pictures under those conditions were only slightly inferior to hers. Just a real perspective. Moto Gs or even the Moto Xs don't have great cameras. If you take a lot of pictures and really need a good camera, you should probably get a camera. :)

It brings no improvement other than front facing speakers. The new Moto G has a bigger lower resolution screen which I'm certain will result in a worse battery life. The new one also doesn't have LTE. If I didn't have either and had to chose, I would get the Moto G LTE. That said,if you aren't in a hurry, I would wait awhile and see if Motorola releases a newer 2nd Gen Moto G with LTE as a follow up to the one just released. :)
I will get either this phone or the 2nd gen, but will there be any major downsides with this phone? I'm pretty sure this will have better battery life then the new one, but the camera is pretty bad though. I don't really need LTE since I don't have data, but sometimes I do like to have internet access in certain places so I get data addons.
Anonymous, 31 Aug 2014please any one say that motto gi 4g is waterproof phone ? It's not waterproof, but water resistant. Don't throw it in the pool, but it will be fine if you need to make a phone call in the rain.

The Moto X was supposed to do that, but was priced too high. The Moto G was designed primarily for emerging markets that largely lacked LTE, so LTE wasn't built into the first Moto G to keep costs down. You're right, they didn't used to care much about what the customers wanted, but they listened on this. :)
Anonymous, 03 Sep 2014can anyone tell me how fast does it download apps and also if there is an option to move to sd cardYes, you can move apps to SD Card. I don't know if you can with all apps, but I have moved a bunch to SD Card. As far as downloads, speed is good but that also depends on your carrier as well, or the wifi you are using.

For the price this is a great phone. It is fast and has just had a 32gb memory card popped in. How I wished some of my previous phones could of done that.
The company I work for are that impressed they are rolling this model out to our staff.
First time so happy with a mobile phone. It is excellent and not only for its price. The battery lasts easily over 2 days with mixed use (Wi-Fi internet access only), the GPS is fast even in difficult situations, the speaker is loud and clear, the display is more than good and generally it is fast enough for what I need. Even the camera is not so bad in good lighting conditions (haven't really tested it in low light). Also it's size and weight are good and one-hand friendly. Nice job Motorola, I certainly recommend this phone!

It's quite common to release a 3G version first, and then an upgraded 4G version (e.g. Xiaomi's Redmi Note, which just has had its 4G version released), and the 4G Moto G is selling exceptionally well on Tesco's new 4G network here in the UK. A few years back I used the (excellent) Atrix 4G, it was very clear that back then the US-owned Motorola couldn't care less about its users and what they wanted...

sanira, 01 Sep 2014What is the internal memory in your phone 8gb or16gby?Only 8 Gb, as far as I know from other sites. But you can use a supplementary micro SD card that increases the capacity up to additional 32 GB. the micro SD card works better in with Android 4.4.4. - the updated version of Kit-Kat.
