The Moto G 3rd Gen was launched in July, 2015 and became one of the hottest trend
in the smartphone discussion. Its manufacturer Motorola managed to provide decent
features and a premium look while making the phone completely water resistant. Moto
G will serve as a reliable companion and would never disappoint you with performance
The Moto G 3rd Gen featured with a 5.0 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen that
provided a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm
MSM8916 Snapdragon 410 chipset clocked to a 1.4 GHz Cortex-A53 Quad-core
processor and 2GB RAM. The phone is available in two models, lower model
contains 8 GB of internal memory with 1 GB of RAM while the higher contains 16 GB of
internal memory with 2 GB of RAM, while their memory can be expanded up to 32 GB
using the MicroSD card slot provided in the phone. The phone runs on Android OS,
version 5.1.1 (Lollipop), with a planned upgrade to version 6.0 (Marshmallow). The
phone runs on Android and is free from bloatwares. The 13MP primary camera provides
image resolution of 4128 x 3096 pixels and assisted by a dual tone LED flashlight, while
the secondary camera of 5MP is provided. HD video recording is also done by the
camera at frames like 1080p@30fps. The Moto G 3rd Gen has a very unique design and
one can easily say that it’s the best designed phone in the Moto series. The phone is
handy but it feels a little bulky when used as the phone weighs 155 grams. A 2470 mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery is provided that works moderately, just like various other
smartphones in its segment.
The Moto G 3rd Gen is an amazing smartphone with its decent processor, HD display.
Additional features include FM Radio, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS, with sensors like
accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and proximity sensor. The Moto G 3rd gen
supports quick gestures, like if you want to switch on the flashlight, then you could do
so by shaking the phone twice or you can twist your wrist twice to open the camera app.
The phone has a room for improvements in the battery sector as its not user
replaceable, but then again, you can’t complain much with the price point you get to
have this phone.
The phone finds stiff competition from Motorola Moto X Play
and Google Nexus 5
manages to stay in the competition by its huge RAM when compared to Moto X, which
has only 1GB of RAM, while being water resistant when compared to Nexus 5.
The Moto G 3rd Gen is the best smartphone for users that are searching for a decent
smartphone that offers a reliable performance. The phone serves best for the people
who have to continually use their smartphones, even when it’s raining outdoors. If you
wish to own a smartphone that gives a solid performance with decent specs, then this is
the smartphone to go for.
