With the Moto G, Motorola threw a giant spanner in the works of the mobile world. Its lineup of mid-range specs was paired with an amazingly low price, making it the best value phone by a country mile. It made reviewing phones somewhat repetitive — time after time I was forced to conclude, “This phone is fine, but the Moto G offers the same performance for much less money.” The plastic back panels are interchangeable and there is a host of different colors available, along with ruggedized cases and flip covers that protect the screen. The Moto G is also now in white, although the white model is not quite as widely available. I was keen on the new hue at the launch event — it definitely brightens it up, particularly when it’s paired with a light-colored back, so I’m hoping it becomes easier to get hold of soon. Underneath the swappable cover is the microSD card slot. The lack of expandable storage was a disappointment on the older Moto G, as it was only available with 8 or 16GB. While 16GB is probably adequate for most people, if you were shopping on a budget and only wanted to spring for the 8GB model, you’d quickly find yourself running out of space once you’ve downloaded your favourite apps and songs. The new model comes with only 8GB, but with the option to pop in 32GB microSD cards (available for around £10, or $15), storage shouldn’t be an issue.
