Motorola Moto G 4G LTE Review - The Upgrade

Motorola Moto G 4G is definitely a phone many are looking forward to. It is the upgrade people wanted and Motorola delivered. The very popular Moto G was criticized about its lack of memory expansion slot and not so about the missing LTE connectivity. Well, here it is - the Moto G 4G with a microSD slot and LTE support. Motorola even managed to sneak a gyro sensor, as well. The rest of the hardware is pretty much identical to the Moto G.

The Moto G 4G is like an expansion pack, it isn't a brand new device, a successor, a sequel. It is just an improved edition for those who wished for one. It is that simple. It comes with all pros and cons the original Moto G came sans the upgrades. Luckily, the price remains really attractive and the new features will cost you a premium of only about €35. This allows it to keep its place among the cheapest LTE-enable phones on the market.

After we did all our test, we found the Moto G 4G performing great most of the time. Here is our traditional summary:

Motorola Moto G 4G test findings:
  1. Build quality is great, though the plastic is not inspiring, rear covers are exchangeable
  2. The display is very bright, the contrast and the sunlight legibility are very good
  3. The battery life is very good
  4. It has an all-round connectivity package including LTE, USB Host and FM radio
  5. We rated the speaker loudness as Excellent, which is rare among smartphones these days
  6. Latest Android KitKat version with a fast track update program, has some proprietary Moto apps - Assist, Migrate, Alert
  7. The benchmark performance is OK for the class
  8. The audio output quality is excellent
  9. Video player handles DivX, XviD, MKV and MP4, but lacks WMV, MOV, AC3 decoding capabilities
  10. Camera takes average 5MP photos and poor 720p videos
The uninspiring camera has been an issue for the Moto G and Moto E, and it continues to be so in the Moto G 4G. While it could have benefited from an upgrade, we would have been happy even on an improved camera algorithm. But given the great achievements in every other department, including the fast Android updates, we are definitely inclined to forgive the poor camera performance.
