Now that Motorola’s 2nd generation Moto X and Moto G smartphones are available, you might think that last year’s models are old news… and they kind of are. But they’re still pretty great phones, especially for folks who like smaller screens and lower prices.

You can pick up a contract-free Moto G for Boost Mobile for just $60. Want an unlocked Moto X that works on GSM networks? That’ll be just $250.

  1. Hey Brad, have you happened to hear anything about a new (2nd gen) Moto G LTE? I am considering buying the current Moto G LTE, but I am worried that they will release a new one based on the 2nd gen Moto G and I will have a serious case of buyer’s remorse. I have tried searching around on my own and have found nothing, thought I’d ask an industry insider.

    1. Haven’t heard a peep. I’m still waiting for them to release the 16GB model of the Moto G 2. Right now only the 8GB model is available.

      The new phone has a bigger screen and better camera than last year’s model, but most other specs remain unchanged. So if you don’t need the improved camera, there’s little harm in ordering the original Moto G with LTE.

      1. Thanks for the quick reply. I would like the bigger screen and dual front facing speakers, but could also live without them. My wife really wants a phone with a decent camera (our first child is almost 8 months old and she takes a lot of pictures of him) and I’ve read the 1st gen Moto G had a mid-range, at best, camera. I will probably just break down and buy the current Moto G LTE, coming from her current Android 2.3 smartphone she will likely think the camera is great, but I’ll have to secretly live knowing the truth. Maybe I’ll just get her a Lumia, heard they have nice cameras, and myself a Moto G LTE.
        On a side note, I really like your site. It is my go-to tech news site. Your articles and reviews are unbiased and easily understood by modest techies like myself. What other tech site could I ask the author a question and get a reply in 3 minutes? I know of none. Keep up the great work and we’ll keep coming back for more!

        1. Aww shucks. 🙂

          Yeah, if I were in the market for a phone myself I might seriously consider the new Moto G. As it is, I’m planning to buy one to replace my wife’s aging Samsung Galaxy Nexus.

          We can live without LTE, but if the 16GB model will be just $20 more than the 8GB, I figure it’s worth waiting for.

          1. Is adding a micro sd card problematic? Why would a 16GB phone be better than an 8GB phone with added micro sd card memory?

          2. You can use a microSD card for music, videos, and other data. But many apps and some data can’t easily be loaded on an SD card.

        2. I have a Moto G LTE. It’s a very nice phone in most respects — performance, battery life, screen quality, call quality, and the pure feel of the thing in the hand are all somewhere between surprisingly good and excellent. But the camera is pretty poor. Moreover, it’s flaws would be obvious to any user — the stock camera app is very limited, and it can be difficult to get the camera to focus on anything. Look elsewhere if the camera matters to you.
