Moto G (3rd Gen) Review: Motorola Goes All In

Moto G (3rd Gen) Review: Motorola Goes All In

Every once in awhile, a company decides to be a jerk and doesn’t send me a review unit. Even more rarely, I decide to buy the phone that they won’t send me. Even rarer is when the phone impresses me so much that I give it a glowing review. This is one of those times. The third generation Moto G was reviewed alongside the HTC Desire 626, which comes in at the same price point…

Nokia Lumia 1320 vs Moto G Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods Since the Nokia Lumia 1320 has recently gotten the Lumia Cyan update, Nokia was kind enough to send me a review unit. I’m doing with it what I do with all review units: camera reviews! Since the Nokia Lumia 1320 is a mid-range phone, it makes sense to compare it to mid-range phones. The scope of this review will be to compare the Nokia Lumia 1320 to the Moto G. I’m…

OnePlus One vs Moto G Camera Comparison

OnePlus One vs Moto G Camera Comparison

By Rich W Woods I have been spending a lot of time with the Moto G over the last couple weeks. I compared the camera to the Nokia Lumia 635, iPhone 6, and the Moto X and also wrote a full review. In writing all of these comparisons and reviews, one thing was for sure. If I don’t compare the camera of the Moto G to the OnePlus One, I would get crucified for snubbing the…

Moto G vs iPhone 6 Camera Comparison: Same Specs, Different Price

By Rich W Woods In the case of hardware, the Moto G and the iPhone 6 are actually very similar phones.

Moto X vs Moto G: Is the Moto X Worth an Extra $320?

By Rich W Woods On September 4, 2014, Motorola announced a new family of products: the Moto X, Moto G, Moto 360, and Moto Hint. The Moto 360 is an Android Wear watch and the Moto Hint is a Bluetooth earpiece that is smaller than my fingertip. While the Moto 360 and the Moto Hint are accessories, the Moto X and the Moto G are phones. There is no reason to use both of them….

Moto G: First Impressions

Moto G: First Impressions

By Rich W Woods We all love our iPhones, HTC One M8s, and LG G3s, but those are very expensive phones. Sometimes one must wonder about budget smart phones.

That is the question that I intend to answer over a series of reviews and comparisons. Here’s my first impressions.
