MOTO G (2nd Gen) Review Atul Singh Monday, 29 December 2014 No Comment

When you think of budget smartphones, you might think of small, chunky devices with sub-par screens and low-powered specs. This all changed when the original Moto G launched last year, as it revolutionised what we came to expect from budget smartphone performance. It was still, by current standards, a compact phone, though, with a small 4.5in display. Now, the latest version of Motorola's best-ever-selling smartphone, also called the Moto G, has a large 5in display, giving you great value performance on a big screen.

Exceptional Phone. Exceptional Price. The Moto G 2nd Generation is the successor to the highly successful Moto G. With a 5-inch HD screen and an incredibly fast Quad-Core processor, you can expect a smooth smartphone experience wherever you go.

Key Features of Moto G (2nd Gen)   

  • 1 GB RAM
  • Dual Sim (GSM + GSM)
  • 1.2 Ghz Qualcomm Quad Core Processor
  • 5-inch HD Screen
  • Expandable Upto 32GB
  • Android v4.4.4 (KitKat) OS
  • 8 MP Primary Camera and 2 MP Secondary Camera

Now we know the key feature lets go in depth to see how these feature are actually.

5 Inch HD Display

The Moto G 2nd Generation is the first smartphone in its class to offer a 5-inch HD display. Enjoy music and videos on this brilliant display that gives you sharp quality all the time. The phone is also protected with Corning Gorilla Glass which gives you extra protection from everyday scratches and scrapes.

Measured contrast was also excellent, at 960:1. This high contrast level helped the screen produce plenty of detail in our high-contrast test images, and the screen's viewing angles were equally superb. When we placed the new Moto G to our side, we could still see the screen clearly with hardly any discolouration present onscreen.

Full stereo sound

We were able to experience the clarity of a full stereo sound as the Moto G features two speakers on the front of the phone. Whether it is your music or videos, the phone will play your media in full stereo sound.

1.2 Ghz Qualcomm Processor
The Moto G 2nd Generation phone comes with a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 1.2GHz quad-core CPU and advanced graphics that let you switch back and forth between applications with ease.


Battery life is excellent. In our continuous video playback test, the new Moto G's 2,070mAh battery lasted 9 hours and 39 minutes with the screen set the half brightness. This beats the original Moto G by about 30 minutes, so we were pleased to see the larger screen didn't take its toll on the phone's battery life. It doesn't quite match the 4G Moto G, which lasted another hour under the same conditions, but this is still an excellent result for a phone of this price and the new Moto G should be able to keep you going all day before you need to recharge it. 

Motorola has also improved the Moto G's camera, which is great news as the camera was one of the old Moto G's weakest areas. The phone now comes with an 8-megapixel rear sensor with an f2.0 aperture, and you also have the option to change the aspect ratio from 16:9 to 4:3. The old Moto G, by comparison, was locked to 16:9. The new Moto G has all the same photo modes available, too, including HDR and Panorama modes.

Outdoors, our photos looked rich and much more natural than the old Moto G's images, and there was much more detail on show. The brickwork in our test scene was crystal-clear and the sky didn't suffer from any signs of overexposure. Objects further away were a little fuzzy compared to those in the foreground, but it's still a huge step up from most other budget cameras from similarly priced phones.
We were pleased with the Moto G's HDR mode, too. The effect was sometimes a little strong, but it helped bring a lot more definition to our shots and helped brighten what was otherwise a very gloomy afternoon. The accuracy of the colours wasn't affected by HDR either, so images still looked great regardless of whether HDR was turned on or off.


The new Moto G isn't just an amazing bargain. It's a Rs.12999 phone that gives a surprising number of Rs.25000-plus mid-range handsets a real run for their money, and in most cases actually beats them hands down in terms of overall value. We didn't think it was possible to create a better phone than the original Moto G, but the latest version of Motorola's unstoppable handset rightly claims its crown as the new king of budget smartphones. It wins a Best Buy award.
