After success of Moto G smartphone now Motorola’s new improved Moto G is also expected to find many takers. Motorola has launched the new Moto G or the Moto G (Gen 2) as the company calls it, at Rs. 12,999 (16GB). The new device was unveiled amidst much fanfare at an event in New Delhi on Friday, alongside the unveiling of the new Moto X and the Moto 360 smartwatch.
What bundeld with new Moto G
The Moto G (Gen 2) looks a lot like the Moto X (Gen 2), which is not a bad thing at all considering the price difference of both the handsets. Maybe Moto X (Gen 2) owners might be annoyed that it doesn’t feel premium enough.
The latest smartphones tall and sleek, with measurements of 141.5×70.7×10.99mm compared to its predecessor’s 129.9×65.9×11.6mm. At 149 grams, the new Moto G (Gen 2) is slightly heavier than the older version (143 gram
One of the biggest upgrades to the latest Moto G (Gen 2) smartpone is the 5-inch HD (720×1280-pixel) IPS LCD display. This is reduction in pixel density as compared to the 4.5-inch old Moto G, though this is hardly visible to the naked eye. The front of the handset now sports dual speakers at top and bottom that offer acceptable sound clarity. The front camera is placed right in the centre of the panel. The rear of the Moto G (Gen 2) is one place where it looks just like the older version.
Moto G features an 8-megapixel autofocus rear camera with LED flash and a 2-megapixel front-facing camera. The cameras are both upgrades over the older model’s 5-megapixel and 1.3-megapixel ones. When we tried it out, the camera app opened right away and we were able to take pictures without any shutter lag.
The Latest Moto G (Gen 2) runs Android 4.4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box, and the company has confirmed an Android L update is on the way. The device has a number of Google apps preloaded, including Gmail, Google+, Google Drive, Google Photos, Keep, Hangouts, Search, Google Maps, Play Games, Play Movies, Play Movies, Play Books, and Play Newsstand. The Moto G (Gen 2), much like the older version, uses on-screen navigation keys.
Overall the look and feel of new Moto G’s interface is very much as it has been on Motorola’s recent devices
