It’s amazing how much you can get for so little these days. The third generation Moto G, which provides users with the second-most-recent version of Android, a 5-inch display, great battery life, Motorola’s useful (but unobtrusive if you don’t want it!) software suite, and even some decent internals, starts at a mere $180 unlocked. It’s mind-boggling. You’ll undoubtedly make some concessions – especially in the build and camera departments – but if you’re just looking for smooth, up-to-date Android functionality at a cheap price, the Moto G is most definitely the phone for you.
- Motorola’s software offering, even if it is a little handicapped
