Motorola, in its new incarnation, can be credited with reshaping the lower end of the Indian smartphone market. The Moto G, when launched earlier this year, was quite simply the best possible value you could get in a smartphone. It set off a massive chain reaction with companies launching competitive models and cutting prices to stay relevant.

Motorola Moto G (Gen 2) Summary

The original Motorola Moto G burst onto the scene and quickly became our favourite phone in its price band thanks to an unprecedented level of performance and finesse. Its successor, the aptly named Moto G (Gen 2), continues in the same vein but also brings along a healthy set of improvements, including a much-needed microSD card slot. In line with industry trends, the Moto G (Gen 2) traded its predecessor's 4.5-inch screen for a 5-inch one and as a result is a bit large and unwieldy. The software is near-stock Android, which feels fresh and clean. Our benchmark test results indicated good overall performance, camera quality and battery life. Overall, this is a solid option for value-conscious buyers.

  • Good VFM Smartphone by Motorola
    Abhishek Desai (Nov 7, 2015) on Gadgets 360
    It's been over a year, I've been using this smartphone. And honestly, it hasn't disappointed me till date. When it comes to the pros : Camera(both front and back), Display, Battery Backup, Ergonomic Design, Loud and Clear Front Speakers, 16GB Internal Storage and Performance are top-notch. For the cons, only the built, which is strictly average, since a metallic back finish was desired. You may face lag issues, on using it for a long time. Nevertheless, this is surely total Value-For-Money device, which you'll be happy to have.

  • Moto G2 the Best OLD Phone
    Subhajit Banerjee (Jul 3, 2016) on Gadgets 360
    MOTO G2 was the best mobile in first qtr of 2015.It is also a very good phone for the person using it now. Moto G2 is almost eighteen months old (Came to Market on Nov'14) hence the Battery is ageing out . Even then it is great to use, it has received Marshmellow update which no one phone of that generation has received. I am using this phone from December 2014 and feel totally satisfied.

  • Moto G 2nd Gen is tough and durable
    Renjith Mohanan (Jul 25, 2017) on Gadgets 360 Recommends
    Been using my Moto H 2nd gen for more than 2 years. Good phone if you don't want a great camera. Camera is pretty decent in day light. But lacks clarity and depth in low light. Performance is decent. But in low battery you will be able to feel the difference between a high end version and this one. I saw the design and material being criticized, but as per my experience even after lot of falls and me throwing it around my room, its rigid and even after the LCD is broken, the phone works fine. The design is not so bad comparing to the new Moto designs and Samsung-s in this range. I would say you don't need to buy this mobile anymore as there are good phones in market in this price range or if you are ready to spend a little more you can buy a new phone with better processor and performance. But let me say this, "This mobile made me a Fan of moto". Cheers!!!
