    “The latest iteration of the Moto G rocks our boat and comes across as a practical choice”Raise your hands if you remember the Moto RAZR V3 – a slim clamshell that originally came out in 2004. It went on to become a bestseller around the globe, and achieved cult status. Motorola’s also credited with inventing the cellphone, if you didn’t know. But despite these and many other distinctions the brand holds to its name, we were still scept...

    Pros: Solid build quality; Water resistant; Smooth performance; Good battery life; Stock Lollipop spiced up with a few useful features;  

    Cons: No notification LED; Low-light camera performance could have been better;  

    Verdict: The Moto G 3rd-gen variant with 2GB of RAM and 16GB storage is priced at Rs 12,999, while the other variant with half the RAM and half the storage is priced just Rs 1,000 cheaper at Rs 11,999… so picking the pricier model over the other one is real...

    Overall: I've used apple, Samsung, HTC phones over the last several years .. and some of these phones cost about 3 times as much as this moto 3g ... But without a doubt, the moto g has been the best phone I've used. This is based on 7 months of using it. Great battery life. No hangs. No crashes. No over heating. Dual sim works perfectly. Love the UI which is not over customized like with Samsung and HTC. Good camera. All in all, never had a reason to frown upon this phone.
