The original Moto G was a device that broke boundaries and destroyed convention. Motorola dared to challenge the status quo and entrenched pricing of major manufacturers by offering a powerful and capable phone at a price far below the competition.
2 years on and this strategy continues. If you choose to buy any Motorola smartphone, you'll find not just a cheap handset compared to others, but something that is just as powerful, if not more so, than those around and more costly than it.
With the SIM Free Moto G 4G 2nd Gen, Motorola have updated their range once more, bringing modern high speed cellular connectivity to a 5-inch quad-core phone, all for under £150.
Other phones at this price might be slightly faster or offer a slightly crisper screen, however only the Motorola will provide the best combination of specifications to make a truly rounded whole.
A 1.2 GHz quad core processor, 1GB RAM, 5 inch screen, 8/2 MP main/front camera combination, LTE support and Android 5.0 (upgrade available) make this the most feature filled entry level smartphone available.
Google Android 5.0 Lollipop
Whilst Android 4.4 is installed out of the box an upgrade to Android version 5.0 is available for the handset.
As part of Google for over a year, Motorola's smartphones are geared to work with the Android system. This includes ensuring they are ready for updates almost as soon as they are available without needing to tweak too much.
Updating to Lollipop provides a modernised clean interface, modelled on what Google refer to as Material Design. This new style will be prevalent on all Google's services to provide a synchronised experience. Notifications have also been overhauled; they are now less intrusive and allow you (if you choose) to respond directly from the lockscreen or not interrupt your viewing when playing full screen games or movies.
Power management for all users has now also been introduced - a power saving mode to reduce background processes has been included as well as advanced options for all Lollipop users.
Services and software
The Android system will provide you with most of the applications you should need, inlcuding Gmail, Maps, Photo Gallery, Hangouts for texting, Drive for documents and many more. You will also have access to Google Play to be able to install new applications from the Internet.
Motorola don't add much to the system, leaving the personalisation of Android to you. There are a few apps installed though - Motorola Migrate helps you transer content from an old phone to your new Moto G 4G (2nd Gen). Also Moto Assist and Alert, which work in combination with your calendar and contacts to to provide you with useful updates and reminders throughout the day.
Whether it be for calls or emails, browsing the web, playing games, listening to music or updating your social networks, the Moto G 4G (2nd Gen) offers something fro everyone.
