Moto G 16GB is only £129 from Tesco, but get a move on

Tesco is piling the Moto G high and flogging it cheap, with the 16GB model of Motorola's new budget blower going for a mere £129.

Tesco is piling the Moto G high and flogging it cheap, with the more capacious 16GB model of Motorola's new budget blower going for a mere £129 on the supermarket's website.

A search results page also lists the 8GB Moto G for the staggeringly inexpensive price of £99, but the link just redirects to another page, indicating that version has already sold out.

The 16GB normally goes for £160 SIM-free, so you're saving over £30 by buying it from Tesco. It'll be locked to Tesco's network, however, meaning you'll have to buy your pay as you go credit from the ubermarket. It's also only available in black.

"Sign up to our free credit tariff and we will triple your credit on top-ups of £10, £15 and £20 each month. If you top-up £15 or more you can choose from a free bundle of free texts, minutes or data," Tesco offers.

The Moto G launched last week and earned a mighty four and a half stars from our phone reviewer Andy -- and if anyone can spot a winner, it's that man. He loved its brilliant screen, sturdy build, reliable battery life and smooth interface, and for the price he reckons it's an absolute no-brainer.

Its 4.5-inch display packs in a humungous 1,280x720 pixels, making it capable of playing HD video -- and far, far sharper than any comparably priced mobile. It uses Android 4.3, the latest-but-one version of Google's software, which has a bazillion apps and runs buttery smooth on the G.
