Aaron unboxes the Moto G, Motorola's newest smartphone and a nicely equipped smartphone for the price point. Starting at $179 unlocked and without a contract, the Moto G offers a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU, 4.5-inch 720p HD display, 5-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, 1 GB of RAM, 8 or 16 GB of internal storage, HSPA+ connectivity, a 2,070 mAh battery, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean (with the promise of Android 4.4 KitKat soon). While Moto G ships in black, Motorola offers a number of back covers and cases for personalization.
The Moto G brings great specifications to a price point that has historically been dominated by devices with less-than-fantastic specs. For $179 unlocked ($199 for the 16 GB variant, Moto G packs a quad-core processor, 720p HD display, customizable design, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Whether buying as a backup device or as a first smartphone, there's a lot to like with Motorola's latest device.
