The Motorola Moto G is an Android phone very similar to Motorola's Moto X, but at a much more affordable price. This phone costs just $179 unsubsidized, without a contract.
Moto G features a 4.5" 720p HD display with 329 pixels per inch. It has a quad-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, and battery life with mixed usage is 24 hours, according to Motorola's website.
The camera may not be the best phone camera, but should be fine for the average user. It has a 5 Megapixel rear camera with an LED flash, 4x digital zoom, and auto HDR. It also has burst mode, and is capable of slow motion video. Both the front and rear camera can record 720p HD video.
Like the Motorola Moto X, the Moto G gets the same customization options. It has several interchangeable backs, called "Shells", that are available in a variety of colors and styles. Motorola has just a regular Shell back, a Shell with flip cover attached, or a Shell with a rubberized frame for extra grip.
As far as inexpensive Android phones go, the Motorola Moto G really stands out as the best. It starts at just $179 unsubsidized and for 8 GB of internal storage. 16 GB of storage is $199. Moto G is available on all GSM networks, including AT&T and T-Mobile.
