I'm waiting for this review. But it seems like a short review in camera department. I wish they update it soon. And there is no words about absences of gyro.
Dear friends, notification LED not necessary in moto g,because it has a new feature to show notification. When ever you take the phone you can see the whole notification without unlocking the phone. So don't worry about it.
And forget the negative comments. If you want a quality product stay with moto g. SD 610 is not necessary, moto g running on the stock android. so it run smoothly.
And we got the useful features like moto maker,IPX7,android update,etc. So choose wisely.
By the review it looks like a great phone for this small price. Kudos Motorola.
Xabi Granja, 06 Aug 2015The only problem for this Moto G 3rd gen is that it offers performance that is way too similar... moreMoto E 2nd gen is as good as it gets in that price range, if only had a flash led..... That's the real deal breaker for me, not because i want flashed photographs, but because i use the led as a flashlight a lot =)

Guess I'll have to be looking for a different phone.. or go with the bad stereo anyway. I'll have to hear it for myself.
It's still priced too high compared to the market. The 1GB RAM model is too constricting so you'd have to pay $220+ for the 2GB model. But if you spend $30 more, $250 can get you a phone with much, much better specs such as the Alcatel Idol 3 or Huawei P8 Lite which are readily available in the U.S. from Amazon or even retail stores like Fry's for the P8. The Idol 3 and P8 are similarly priced with better screens, much faster CPU/GPU, better speakers(dual speakers on Idol 3), NFC support, etc. Even the Zenfone 2 would be a better buy. I can only imagine choosing this Moto G if you truly cannot handle a 5.5 inch phone (try this size first before deciding) or absolutely need close-to-vanilla Lollipop (which is sort of a moot point since all of these phones can be flashed with different Lollipop roms anyway: custom or vanilla). The 2GB model should be the one at $180, not the 1GB model.

How can be that 2nd gen have stereo speakers, but 3rd gen don't? I really wanted to buy this phone, but now knowing that it doesn't have notification light, it bothers me even more.
Outdated Processor and Lack of Moto Voice in the disadvantage list...
"Plugging in a pair of headphones has a rather disastrous effect on stereo quality with crosstalk rising to very high levels.", no stereo at all when using headphone is extremly bad, and the reason why I will never buy Moto G (3rd gen)!
I want a branded fone with following specs.2 gm ram .full HD with high resolution. Snapdragon 610 is necessary,water resistance. Gorilla glass 3,13 mega pixel rear cam.5 mega pixel front cam.and stock Android .the price must under 13000.hey I'm a greedy guy I want all this under 13000.

Whenever I go on any phones specs page and I want to become a fan,it always asks me to log in. Can someone give me a solution to this
The only problem for this Moto G 3rd gen is that it offers performance that is way too similar to the 2nd gen Moto E. Basically if a better screen and camera are necessities for you, then spend the extra $80, otherwise, the Moto E is plenty enough for a normal user.
the key finding used by gsmarena is nice it gave us new way to look device
There are many other improvements here..
I am using it r8 now..
1. Wall charger now provided with usb cable. It has two jack for charging two phone simultaneously.
2.Lot more lighter than 1st or 2nd gen.
3.I think notification light is not needed because of the smart display notifications.
1.I dont know that is my moto g is faulty or not but yellow seems greenish in fluorescent light with the back camera. But the same picture is ok with the front camera. Please @Gsmarena give more details about the camera.
mohsinj, 06 Aug 2015i am still confused to go for Moto G or Zenfone 2.
One has better specs other has water resis... moreFriendly advice: forget about specs. If you can, go into a store and try to play with both phones.
And the reason I'd go with Moto is the near stock Android experience. Zenphone is heavily skinned and thus more unlikely to get updates. That and the better battery life on the Moto G.
Dude don't go for the Zenfone 2. I sold it a few days ago to buy the Moto G 3rd gen. I regret buying the Zenfone 2 . I had a very negative experience with it even if it worked fine and all, I didn't like using it. My original Moto g 2st gen was a great experience though. Therefore, I decided to opt for the 3rd gen Moto G. These are my words of advice for you.
Finally! A version of the Moto G that provides great battery life! It's the only thing keeping me from buying previous generations. Also liked the Moto E, but nobody's selling it in the PH. Moto G is very accessible though, so that's a big relief considering this upgrade.
