Motorola’s new low-cost, contract-free smartphone with 4G LTE support is now available for purchase for $219. The Moto G with LTE was unveiled about a month ago, and now you can pick one up from Motorola or Amazon.
Like the original Moto G, the new model has a 4.5 inch, 1280 x 720 pixel display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor, a 2070mAh battery, a 5MP rear camera and 1.2MP front-facing camera. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat.
The new phone has only 8GB of built-in storage, but unlike the GSM-only model the new Moto G with LTE has a microSD reader slot which you can use for additional storage.
Motorola offers the phone in black or white.
While the Moto G is hardly the cheapest smartphone on the market (it’s not even the cheapest Motorola phone), it’s one of the more affordable unlocked phones with an HD screen, quad-core CPU, and LTE support.
In addition to LTE networks, the phone supports 2G and 3G HSPA+ and the phone should work with AT&T, T-Mobile, or any MVNO that uses either network.
Waiting (hoping) for the play store edition of this phone.
Does the standard version really come with that much non-removable “bloatware”? Overall, I agree though, the less pre-installed software the better.
It comes pretty clean, but I like the reliability of GPE updates.
I Hope this company does not change too much under Lenovo cause they sure are rocking the phone business with these terrific handsets at good prices…
Knowing Lenovo, the list price for the Moto G LTE will rise to $1095, and then they will claim that the $219 selling price is 80% off.
It has terrible ratings on the Play store and not JUST because of the in-app purchase silliness…
Pretty tempting, though as a long term PAYGo mobile phone user with T-Mobile, the cost of plans with decent amount of data are hard to swallow.
Try out some of the T-Mobile MVNOs like Simple Mobile. They offer decent pay-as-you-go plans for not a lot of money.
I guess I wasn’t clear — I like the cost of the T-Mobile PAYGO plan. I paid $100 for the first 12 months, and it only costs $10 after that to keep extending the expiration date for the minutes by another 12 months. (As you can probably guess, I’m not a heavy user!)
Wow, a Moto with a card slot?
That didn’t take long.
