LOL 5 inch screen. Bad for battery and not everyone wants a big screen. The reason why I love the Moto G LTE is because of it's practicality. It size is just right that it fits in your pocket and isn't too wide. Ample battery to last over a day. And awesome micro sd expansion for all your content. They should have just kept the size of the existing G and improved on it. Camera upgrade, more ram, better battery are all the improvements needed. And keeping the $199-$249 price point.
Still no external sd slot? Or they finally placed one? Nvm, it's a 5 incher...
I like the better cameras... but still, I'd prefer the original Moto G overall.

There we go. Another damn 5' phone.
We the 4-4,5 users are getting out of alternatives. Nowadays even "minis" tend to the 5' mark! MINIS!!!
- Whats the backpack for?
- Oh, its to carry my Oppo MINI!
I want a phone, not a surfboard!!!!
Ram 1gb (722mb usable) is not enough nowadays, facebook apps alone can consume 500mb or more

Man what's the thing with having to increase screen size every year? seriously, this is really becoming annoying.
Choice is great, but then get out the same model in different screen sizes, is that difficult???!!!!!
they should have put at least 1.5-2gb of ram in there. 1gb is too little for 2014 phone even for the low/mid end.
BATTERY LIFE! BATTERY LIFE! and more BATTERY LIFE!
The current G has 2070 mah battery. My friends that OWN them all say they CANNOT get a full day out of them. The other features and improvements are OK, but a much bigger battery capacity of 2800-3000 would be, by far, the biggest and best improvement Motorola can make.
i believe it's a good upgrade,....though no one said that this IS the moto g2 it's just a guess
have anyone noticed the pic and the fact that this doesn't just have a bigger screen,it also has a 8mp rear camera and a 2 mp front....while in fact one of the only things that turned heads on this is the low cameras.
the only thing i say is...if that's infact g2 it's great i only hope they go for a new design for this build
I'm using Moto G its a BugDroid + LagDroid I hate Android even if its stock its not bearable to use
They should put the snapdragon 410 along with adreno 306 and 1.5gb ram and the battery should be increased to 2600 mah
Why 5 inch screen??? Motorola tired of success of Moto G and decided to spoil device...

It will drain more battery, but I'd say a bigger phone will also contain a bigger battery which will compensate for the bigger screen.
AnonD-286474, 05 Aug 2014SD card is very important, otherwise this G2 might as well stay GThe 4g moto g does have micro sd now.
Bigger screen will mean poorer performance especially if it has the same chipset clocked at the same speed as the original. Pointless really. OK it now has a screen the same size as Xperia m2 but people pick the M2 because it looks like the Xperia Z series. I have a friend who is going for the M2 and it's pointless me telling her how rubbish the screen is. Obviously the g2 will cost more than moto g which will push the price ever closer to the nexus 5 which has specs that will trash any moto g.
A true successor would have a faster processor and more ram. Equip it with a Snapdragon 410 SoC and either 1.5 or 2 gigs of ram, then you'd have an update worth getting.
