New Moto G reinvents what an affordable phone can do – again – and lands alongside the Moto G4 Plus


The Motorola Moto G reinvented expectations of the entry-level smartphone when it dropped back in 2013, and now the fourth-gen Moto G is shaking things up again.

Thinner than its predecessors despite jumping to a larger 5.5-inch, 1080p Full HD display, the affordable new handset sees its specs sheet further bolstered by the addition of a 13-megapixel camera.

As well as featuring a specs sheet that punches well above the handset’s £169 asking price, the new Moto G has a battery that won’t quit, with the 3,000mAh power supply helping the octa-core powered handset breeze through that full day hump.


When a return to the mains is needed, TurboPower quick charge skills will add six hours of usage from just 15 minutes plugged in.

Despite appeasing the light of wallet smartphone user, the Moto G is not alone on the Lenovo-owned company’s new handset roster.

The entry-level handset lines up alongside an even more specs impressive Moto G4 Plus.

Despite featuring the same screen, battery and 5-megapixel selfie snapper as its little brother, the Plus jumps to a 16-megapixel primary camera and throws in a security-improving fingerprint scanner for good measure.

While the Moto G4 will be available from Tesco Mobile starting in early June, the £199 G Plus will drop later the same month as an Amazon exclusive.
