Display and design

The Moto G 3rd Gen price and features were announced by Motorola earlier this year (2015). The new mobile from Motorola upholds the legacy with a supremely engineered 5-inch HD (1,280 x 720 pixels) IPS LCD capacitive display, resulting into a pixel density of 294ppi. It has been protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 which effectively protects the display from accidental damages and unwanted scratches.

The Moto G3 gets a significant facelift in terms of design with some premium elements like the metal frame and a vertical metallic strip at the back. But the goodness doesn't end here, as the new device comes with IPx7 compatibility, making it waterproof, and letting it survive in up to three feet of water for up to 30 minutes.

Configuration

The Moto G (2015) has been powered by a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor clocked at 1.4 GHz. Working in consonance with the CPU is a powerful 2GB RAM and Adreno 306 GPU. The software which forms the basic substratum for all operations is the newly launched Android v5.1.1 (Lollipop) operating system, preloaded with some signature apps like Moto Display, Quick Capture etc.

Camera and storage

The smartphone boasts of a 13MP autofocus rear camera with an f/2.0 aperture, IR filter and colour-balancing flash. On the front, the smartphone is armed with a 5MP camera with a wide-angle lens, making your phone an awesome tool for clicking selfies. The new Moto G comes with a 16GB internal memory which can further be expanded up to 32GB.

Battery and Connectivity

The Moto G3 draws energy from a 2,470mAh non-removable battery that claims to run the show uninterrupted for a decent number of hours. To appease the fast paced generation, the gadget features a wide range of connectivity features like 4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS and USB.

Verdict

The 4G mobile Moto G 3rd Generation comes packed with powerful specs and elegant design. You get good configuration, impressive specification, latest OS, 4G connectivity, and on top of all, the IPx7 compatibility. The Moto G 3rd Generation price in India is reasonable and well within the budget of average smartphone consumers. You can buy it on Flipkart and other online stores, however the Moto G3 price may vary in some online stores. Meet the new members of Moto G family Moto G4 and Moto G4 Plus

    “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: Hello Everyone,nOne line for Flipkart before reviewing this Mobile. "Great Delivery!!! Great Service!!! Flipkart You Rocks ".nNow, nIf you are planning for this Masterpiece, please wait, Read this review carefully, then decide.nThis is my 3rd motorola smartphone after moto G and moto E(2nd Gen). I am writing this review after using this mobile for almost one week. As you can see many reviewers has given good rating and very good comments on this mobile. I am also completely agree with them. The build quality, camera, performance, battery backup and others features are really great under 13K.nnNow a simple question to all the owner of this mobile before i comments on the problem. nFriends, are you able to notice any disturbance with display screen(not with gorilla glass). If not then check once and give your valuable comments.nnnLet me tell you in details. Guys there is a problem with the display. There are thick lines through out the screen from top to bottom. You can easily notice this by turning off the display, keep you mobile under light and observe from different viewing angles. If i am not wrong, you will feel like there is a curtain hanging over the display. nnSo initially i thought there is a problem with this particular piece, so i placed a return request and i got a new piece today. While i was receiving the second one from ekart store, there were another 4-5 people who were unboxing their brand new Moto G3. Then i checked with them, and sadly we all noticed the same problem with all the handsets in presence of eKart guys. Today again i have logged a complain with flipkart customer care and waiting for tomorrow to have a discussion with their technical people.nnI am a big fan of Motorola because of its build quality, i have already used Moto G, Moto E (2nd Gen), but this time it disappointed me. So friends, if this problem is not disturbing for you then definitely go for Moto G3nnHope this review will help you to evaluate this product. Thank You.

    Overall: Bought 16 GB, 2GB Ram, White Color Version, had some Display problem, (finger print smudge in the display).nRequested for replacement got got replacement piece in 3 days.nReplacement piece is also defective, filter like transparent shield is missing on the earpiece(top speaker grill area).nAnd found some sticker is pasted on the earpiece, which is not properly pasted,nDue to that when I call someone, ring sound is very horrible and i cant able to keep the mobile close to my ear. And audio quality is earpiece is most of the time is not audible(very crunchy).nThen again requested for the replacement, but they declined it for 2 times.nThen went to moto service centre, the checked the mobile, they found the earpiece defective.nThen again requested for the Replacement, but the refused to give replacement and gave refund.ni am absolutely disappointed with the flipkart.nnFrom this incident i am having doubt whether flipkart selling 100% new product or they selling used or refurbished piece.n nRecommendation for the Flipkart Buyers : Buy the mobile from flipkart within 1 month from the launch date, else wait for the new model to launch or just forget the flipkart buy it from retail store.nnI won't recommend flipkart to my friends and relatives.
