Aaron reviews the Moto G, Motorola's newest smartphone. Available unlocked for $179, the phone offers some awesome features. Specs include a 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU, 4.5-inch 720p HD display (329 ppi), 5-megapixel camera with 720p HD recording, 1 GB of RAM, 8 or 16 GB of internal storage, 2,070 mAh battery, HSPA+ connectivity, and Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. There's a lot to like about the Moto G - the price point is fantastic and the phone's features re-define the sub-$200 market. I'm really pleased with the level of personalization as well. While the phone ships in black, users can remove the back cover and replace it with a number of colorful options.
All in all, the Moto G has nice specifications for the price point and brings a great deal to the table. There's a place for Moto G as a smartphone in emerging markets, as a backup device, and in many other situations. Part 1 of 2.
