Reviews of Motorola Moto G(2nd Generation)

General Reviews of the users are as follows:

Pros

  • Good Budget Device
  • Good Display
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 3 Protection in this price range.

Cons

  • Outdated in this price range

Undoubtedly Motorola Moto G has been the best selling device for Motorola till date. With a little modification Motorola launched Moto G 2nd Generation to scale up to the modern market. But unfortunately it is completely outdated now and their are lots of better device in this price range. Pardon me for the low ratings but the ratings are based on its competition.

If you are going for this device I would prefer buying Motorola Moto G Turbo Edition which is the upgraded version of this device and nearly same price.
