Good: Camera good and display good resolution. Pre loaded with APPS. easy to use.
Bad: Bad points very little My biggest gripe with the phone is that when it is out of the case the phone is very slippy however i have purchased gel case for it so that should make it easyier to hold. If steaming Video or games its a good idea to plug in charger for it will deplete the battery after a few hours I dont see this as a problem a long as you plug into a power source either in car with USB or mains charger. I can not find any thing else wrong with this great little phone.
Comment: I purchased this from o2 having read reviews on C-Net after a failed upgrade with EE fromT-mobile. and oh boy I was not disapointed It cost me £14.49 per month 100Mb data unlimited texts 200 mins calls. after playing around found it easy to use and down load apps . even loaded Norton Mobile on it to sync to my pc accounts impresive camera, txt and e-mails are easy to use The screen resolution I have found is fantastic and it is really low buget value for money. Its processor speed is ample and it loads internet sites quickly. I am so impressed compared to samsung Gallaxy ace 3 its a much better phone with Quad core processor. If You want an android phone that allows you to google gmail facebook text video call and lots more even watch TV without breaking the bank then look no further this is the phone to get.It will even allow you to set maximum down load data and warning when it is approching your monthly mobile limit. this can be reduce by using home or public wifi networks to save your monthly data limit.

Motorola Moto G 16GB @ Rs.13999 – Flipkart Exclusive Launch

IT IS AMAZING". I would rate it the best under 30K. It is comparable to some of the high end phones we have in the market. If your budget is 25-30 K, go spend that additional 11K on a decent camera as that is the only thing not so good about Moto G.
Things you will like:
- Nexus like experience @ such less price
- Very nice to hold
- Seamless Android operation
- I use an S4 and I was surprised how fast you can zoom into the maps!
- 50 GB Cloud storage (quite nice!)
- Transferring contacts, media, files, applications from your old android phone to the new one with such ease!
- Good call quality
- Sharp display (sharper than 5s)
- Some real cool features: Moto ID that enables you to lock your phone, trace the location and delete contents remotely if your phone gets stolen; and Assist feature to ensure noone disturbs you when your sleeping and when you have an scheduled meeting (Smart!)
Things you may not like:
- Doesn't 'look' like a high end phone (but then its a 14K phone!)
- Kitkat not available yet
- Limited storage may be a problem for some. For wifey 12+GBs is more than sufficient
- Camera is quite disappointing. You really wouldn't want to use it much unless you are left with no other option.
I can't say much about battery backup as it has been less than a day since I received it.
Good: Extremely good for the price
Bad: No SD Card
Comment: This is an extremely good phone for the money even the 16GB version. Unless you actually need all the bells and whistles the top end phones have you can't go wrong.
Good: Price, Speed, Screen Resolution
Comment: I bought this phone a week ago and I can't believe how ridiculous ly good it is.
I bought the phone because I sent my One X+ to HTC for repair under warranty and they have refused to repair it (another story) and I was looking for a cheap replacement until I resolve the problem with HTC.
I was expecting something sluggish with grainy picture quality however this is fantastic I would even go as far as saying it's better than my One X+ which was 4 times the price.
Browsing, games and even editing spreadsheets on Quick Office are dealt with easily, I haven't noticed any lag. The screen quality is quite fantastic too given the price of the phone, not quite as sharp as my One X+ and no where near my wife's GS4 but for £160 I can't complain and should be ample for anybody.
I have noticed the battery life is great too compared to any phone I've had lately, lasts all day easily.
KitKat runs great too just as well as it does on my Nexus7.
All in all I'm chuffed to bits with my new purchase. I can't believe how much budget Android phones have come on since the ones I have used in the past (HTC Wildfire and Samsung Galaxy Ace) which were truly awful.
The only faults I can find are the camera, which is the worst I have seen in a few years but capable and the vibration feedback when typing is a bit rough compared to my HTC, my Nexus 7 and my wife's GS4.
I have been a loyal HTC customer since the G1 and since using this phone which cost a lot less than any HTC I have ever bought I have seen the errors of my ways.
Unless you want a good camera on your phone this is all the phone you will ever need and I don't see why anybody would pay 4 - 5 times the price for anything else.
Good: ..being a motorola.
Bad: ..a little more effort to address the emerging markets...
Comment: -dual sim version
-interchangeable battery (so an owner has the opportunity of bringing a back up battery -instead of connecting an external powerbank)
