  • Low system memory on base model

Bottom Line

All in all, budget buyers in the market for an unlocked smartphone with LTE capability and the latest vanilla Android software won’t go wrong with the Moto G 3rd Generation.


The Moto G 3rd Generation is the bestselling 2015 5-inch smartphone that received positive reviews for its robust water resistant design, fluid performance, decent camera, all-day battery life and LTE support. Another major plus is that Motorola devices have a near stock Android OS and are first in line to get the latest Android firmware updates. On the downside, the base model with low system memory isn’t cut out for multitasking, the camera is weak in low light and it doesn’t have a notification LED. All in all, budget buyers in the market for an unlocked smartphone with LTE capability and the latest vanilla Android software won’t go wrong with the Moto G 3rd Generation.
