Top Customer Review:
I've had this phone for just over a year and a half, and it's probably one of the best phones I could have gotten for my lifestyle. Constantly moving, bumping, occasionally dropping. The screen and phone itself has taken quite a beating, but hasn't cracked or physically broken in any way. It's small and light, and for the first year it was very fast. The lack of memory on the phone was rather annoying, since there was no SD card slot. I got the Lollipop update way after every other Android phone, but it still ran just fine without it. It started to get slower and freeze after the first year. It heats up pretty quickly if you're not in air conditioning, and since I live in the south, that can cause problems. The front camera is very low quality, and not good for selfies (but never took any anyways). The rear facing camera also isn't that great, but much better than most phones from 2013. The speaker is fantastic on it, and I can blast music when I don't have my real speakers with me. I was worried about the charging port breaking, as that is how a lot of good phones break, but there still aren't any issues with it. The actual body of it is strong and flexible. The way this phone met its end is the SIM card slot no longer recognizing the SIM in it. I tried everything. Off and on, taking it out and putting it back in, the whole thing. My carrier (AT&T) said that they sent a signal to my SIM and got no response, meaning my fears were confirmed: my beloved Moto G 1st gen was busted. I'm getting the Moto G4, and I hope it's a better, faster version of this one. All in all, very very happy with this phone. Motorola did a great job. Would reccomend, if we were still in 2013.

Where those more expensive phones still have an edge is in sheer performance. While the Moto G is fast enough for running most apps, its aging 1.4GHz Snapdragon 410 quad core processor and Adreno 306 graphics chip means that it’s not especially well-suited for the very latest, most demanding apps such as games with detailed 3D graphics.
Given the advantage of more memory, it might seem obvious to avoid the 1GB model entirely but the 2GB Moto G costs £41 more at £174 ex VAT. This will be off-putting if you’re on a very tight budget or are planning to deploy the phone in huge numbers. Even if you’re not, the 2GB variant is currently in very short supply.
While this might seem inconsequential at first glance, it’s a significant difference. Our review unit was the 2GB variant and, as a result of the extra memory, the responsiveness of the Android interface was noticeably smoother compared to older 1GB-only Moto G phones. Although there was still some lag on occasion, the responsiveness of the touchscreen was nonetheless almost on par with far more expensive flagship Android phones.
Confusingly, there are actually two different versions of the 2015 Moto G. One is available with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of built-in storage - the other doubles this to 2GB and 16GB respectively. This fact is obfuscated in Motorola’s specifications. Even when buying direct from the company, the fact that choosing more storage also gives you more RAM isn’t spelled out.
