CNET First Look
The new Moto G stays super-affordable, and gets even betterA 5-inch screen, 8-megapixel camera, a micro SD card slot, and improved speakers make the new Moto G an even better value. And it's still $180 off-contract.
[MUSIC] Hi I'm Scott Stein, here at Motorola in Chicago. And the Moto G has been Motorola's most successful phone. It's unbelievable affordable and it is a smart phone that off contract doesn't cost much at all. The new Moto G that's available now is 179, so it's the same price as before. And that's unlocked. And what you're getting is a 5 inch display, the 720p. Looks bright and crisp, 8 megapixel camera that's been upgraded. Plus, some of the Motorola features that were in the Moto X have come over here. Motorola assist. Were, were used while driving for hands free control, is now in here plus an app to help import contacts from feature phones, in case this is your first time on a smart phone and there's a new upgraded alert feature in case you're in trouble. The Moto G also has improved stereo speakers that are front firing, both of them here and it has 15 different colors and back designs and case covers if you wanna. Customize on your own. No wood, no leather on this one but a really nice finish. This actually feels more like the Moto X than before because of it's size. The bigger screen size than last year's Moto X, that feels comfortable to hold and at $179 unlocked that's great but this doesn't have LT, this is 4G. Gotta give up something. The Moto G comes in 8 and 16GB storage options, with the ability to expand with microSD, plus a quad-core processor inside. I'm Scott Stein, here with a quick look at the Moto G, available for $179 unlocked. [MUSIC]
