Review: Motorola Moto G for AT&T
The Motorola Moto G is by no means a perfect device, but it's hard to beat for $180 with no contract commitment.
The G has a comfortable, somewhat-customizable body that fits well in the hand and in your pocket. The screen rates 720p HD and is small enough that your thumb can reach it, while still big and satisfying enough for browsing the web and watching movies. Call quality was rather good and battery life bordered on excellent.
Devices than run stock Android are few and far between. In some ways it's a bonus, and in other ways it's a hindrance. The G has nice and clean menus, a full set of Google-made apps, and the modern Jelly Bean user interface. The exceptionally poor camera application and photo gallery tools are frustrating, but can be sidestepped with alternatives from the Play Store.
At the end of the day, the Moto G is a better all-around device than many of its competitors - and that's a good thing for both you and for Motorola. I highly recommend budget phone seekers check the G first.
