The Moto G is Motorola's biggest and best effort yet in conquering the entry-level market. It's not a handset meant to break records, but the 4.5-inch 720p display, Snapdragon 400 SoC will please the right crowds. Plus, at $179 unlocked and off-contract, it certainly fits the definition of what an affordable smartphone should be.

The Motorola Moto G is one of the best phones of the year, and the first time we’ve seen a phone of this calibre launch at under £200 SIM-free. That it’s so much cheaper than £200 is a minor miracle. This phone deserves to sell by the bucketload.

There's something very compelling about the Moto G, despite my initial thoughts that I'd have little to say about it. Certainly, the Moto G won't take your breath away, but that's mostly the point – it's not meant to. Instead, the Moto G is supposed...

Lenovo already has a strong presence overseas - especially in Asia - but products like the Moto G could really help set it apart from other phone makers, especially when it comes to price and performance. Whether or not Lenovo wants to continue in that direction is unclear, but I hope it continues making phones like this in the future.
