Motorola’s latest Moto G series smartphone is a budget model with a big screen and a big battery that the company says provides up to 2 days of battery life.

The Moto G Pure with a  6.5 inch HD+ display and a 4,000 mAh battery goes on sale through retailers this week for $160, and it’s headed to Verizon October 14th. Other carriers including AT&T and T-Mobile will also begin offering the phone sometime in the next few months.

The Moto G Pure has a 1600 x 720 pixel IPS LCD display with a 20:9 aspect ratio and a pixel density of 269 pixels per inch.

With 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage, this is very much a budget device, but it does have a few nice features including support for face unlock, a fingerprint reader (in the Motorola logo on the back of the phone), an IP52 rating for water resistance (it’s not waterproof, but it should withstand the occasional splash), and dual cameras: the phone has a 13MP primary camera plus a 2MP depth sensor for features like portrait mode, which allow you to blur the background while keeping the subject in focus.

The smartphone also has a 5MP front-facing camera, a USB 2.0 Type-C port, a 3.5mm audio jack, a microSD card reader, and support for WiFi 5, Bluetooth 5.0, and 4G LTE. It comes with a 10-watt charger.

The Moto G Pure is powered by a MediaTek Helio G25 processor, which is a 2 GHz ARM Cortex-A53 octa-core processor with 650 MHz PowerVR GE8320 graphics.

  1. Why Moto is not offering a 4.5″ screen version for the benefit of senior citizens? It will be convenient for handling.

  2. I switched providers a few months ago and they gave me a Moto G Power for free. It’s a place holder until I get my fxtec pro1x 🙂
    I believe it has a 5,000 mah battery, and let me tell you, as cool as it is to have 4 days worth of battery between charges with regular daily use, its a freakin tank. It’s not fun to carry around, it’s not fun to hold, it’s heavy, thick, sticks out of my front pocket and makes it hard to get into vehicles because it’s basically a leg splint, haha.
    But it was free, and I can brag that I’m only down to 85% when my wife’s new iPhone is already needing to be plugged in at the end of the day…
