Motorola Moto G Plus (SIM Free / UK)
The Moto G series of Smartphones has been an example of how an established manufacturer can produce a high-quality device without charging a massive price tag.
For the first time, Motorola are expanding on the Moto G brand. With the new Plus model, the G offers high-end, premium features for the very first time. Of course the price is a little dearer than the standard G, but you'll still be getting excellent value compared to other big names such as Samsung, Sony and Apple.
2016 Moto G Range
For 2016, Motorola has expanded out the G line into 3 separate products. The Moto G Plus provides more RAM than the standard G, plus an advanced 16MP camera and a turbo charger in the box!
Very similar to last year's 3rd generation Moto, the Moto G Play has a smaller 5" screen and other reduced specifications, making it the most affordable option, although this comes at the expense of more modern features.
The standard Moto G4 sits in the middle of these two phones, both in features and price.

From telephone calls to emails, to street level navigation, this powerful product lets you do it all from the palm of your hand, from anywhere in the world (subject to coverage and support).
Android & Moto Pure
Running Google’s Android 6 (Marshmallow) operating system, all of those good things you may have heard about are built into the phone from the moment you power it on.
Existing Android users will be familiar with what the G Plus offers and can be up and running within minutes. Even new Android users can be set-up in no time at all.
Get all your favourite apps installed from the Google Play store, download and sync documents and media through Google Drive or Play Music. Navigate from place to place with Google Maps, watch videos on YouTube and more.
Working most efficiently with an internet connection, what you can do with the Android system is really impressive.
Personalise, stylise and make the handset and the interface work for you.
Use 4G or WiFi, both of which are available on the G Plus, to connect with the world at large. Stream your music or share that image you have just captured.
Motorola do not install lots of unnecessary software, giving you a purer and faster experience.
An octa-core processor, coupled with internal memory and RAM options, provide you with a fast-paced phone that will keep up with the demands you make of it.
If memory gets short, use the MicroSD memory card slot to expand the storage by, up to, a further 128GB.
16 Megapixel Camera
Superb shots are almost guaranteed on the Moto G Plus thanks to the 16 megapixel rear camera, with laser and phase detect auto-focus along with dual LED flash and large f/2.0 aperture.
The intelligent software built into the phone allows for modes like Best Shot which captures multiples shots, recommending the best one. Professional mode delivers more control, and Google Photos allows you to personalise the images with filers, frames and more.
As an added bonus, with the Moto G Plus you get 2 years of Google Photos Original Storage for free. This means you can back up the original, un-compressed, version of the photo.
The same camera captures 1080p HD video footage, has 4x digital zoon, HDR modes, video stabalisation and slow motion video too.
5.5” HD Display
The large 5.5” HD display gives you a large window into your digital world. Control the G Plus through the touchscreen.
Make calls, view media and more.
The HD resolution gives you a great level of detail with which to enjoy all media and content including those images and videos you have captured.
Forget about typing your pin code every time you want to use your G Plus. Simply use the fingerprint reader to wake up your phone and unlock it, once you have configured the device.
Unlike some mobiles, the reader on the G Plus recognises your fingerprint no matter which way you hold it.
You always have your pin as a backup, but the one touch approach makes it simple and quicker to access your device.
The 3,000mAh internal battery should keep you functional for a while, but there comes a time for many of us where we need a top up charge to get us through.
Supporting TurboPower and coming supplied in the box with a turbo charger, the Moto G4 Plus can give you up to 6 hours of power from just 15 minutes of charging. This means less time tethered to a mains socket.
The odd splash or spill can happen and often our mobile phones can be in the way at the time. Thankfully the G Plus will survive. Whilst not water resistant or water proof, the phone is covered in a special nano-coating which repels water so, should the worst happen, you should be covered.
The Motorola Moto G Plus is a powerful smartphone with lots of features and no description will give you a full appreciation of what it can offer you. Only by handling and experiencing for yourself will you see just what a device this is.
