Moto G3 2015 Review (Quick): The best budget smartphone

Watch Moto G 3rd Gen review by TeckSquare

 

The third-generation Moto G is the best thus far, with most of the features you want, and a price that’s almost impossible to beat. The smartphone has a great camera and buttery smooth performance. Display feels sharp and colors are also very good.

Display: 5 Inch display. It has a 720p resolution. The 720p display looks bright and crisp,  you probably won’t notice that it isn’t higher resolution because, at 294 PPI,  Moto G 2015 still feels Full HD. The display on the front of the Moto G3 is protected by smooth Gorilla Glass 3. Corning Gorilla Glass spans 3rd gen Moto G from near edge to edge to help keep your phone protected from unsightly scrapes and scratches.

Camera: Moto G3 features a 13-megapixel camera that uses a Sony IMX214 Exmor RS sensor with f/2.0 aperture and True-Tone LED flash. This is the same sensor used in the Nexus 6, but this lacks OIS. It has a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture. Video recording: 1080p video rec, 30fps Water Resistant: The Moto G 3rd gen most notable new feature is its water-resistant design. The phone is IPX7-rated and can be submerged in up to three feet of water for up to 30 minutes. Moto G is ready to weather any storm with you, protection from splashes and accidental drops in water.

Memory: The Moto G3 comes in two versions: 8GB of storage and 1GB of RAM or 16GB storage and 2GB of RAM  + Micro SD card slot (up to 32GB)

Processor: Moto G 3rd Gen features Quad-core, 1400 MHz, ARM Cortex-A53, 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset which is the same as found in the new Moto E 4G.OS:

Operating System: Stock Android fans will also be glad to know that the third- gen Moto G3 comes with essentially vanilla Android 5.1 on-board. And Now Receiving Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update in Some countries. The Indian Moto G3 model XT1550 is also receiving the Marshmallow update over-the-air (OTA).

Connectivity options: The new Moto G3 comes with 4G LTE connectivity. And Bluetooth 4.0, FM radio and GPS are also in it. Visit Wikipedia page for further information regarding the band and freq.

Battery: Let’s talk battery life of Moto G 3. It has Non-removable Li-Ion 2470 mAh battery. Capacity wise, we’re looking at a 2470 mAh battery. Just about 3% less than the much more expensive Samsung Galaxy S6. You’ll probably get a full day’s use out of the Moto G 3rd gen. And the standby time is very impressive. There’s no turbocharging, and no turbocharger with Moto G3 accessories.
