Verdict

Moto G 4G 2015 does not seem as attractive on specifications as the original Moto G did but nonetheless it is still very charming. The price has now become the issue as other handsets by ZTE, Huawei and HTC have put Moto G in a very competitive market by giving better specifications at lower price. Motorola really need to pull up it’s game to keep it’s leading place in the budget market.
