Motorola's latest Moto G smartphone packs many of the specs you'd expect from a modern phone, at a very affordable off contract price. It has a 5" 720p HD display, a 13MP rear camera and 5MP front facing camera, and 4G LTE connectivity. It also has a slot for an optional microSD card with up to 32 GB capacity.
The Moto G is great for its all-day battery life and durability. It has Corning Gorilla Glass 3 on the display making it resistant to scratching. Moto G is IPX7-rated water resistant as well, which means it can sustain accidental splashes in shallow water. Like other Motorola phones, you'll have the option to customize the front, back, and accent colors with Moto Maker.
While the Moto G starts at $179.99 for the model with 8 GB of internal storage and 1 GB of RAM, we recommend getting the 16 GB model with 2 GB of RAM for $40 more.
