Motorola has unveiled its seventh generation of G-series phones, comprising four individual models, ranging from £149 to £269 in the UK.
Since the first Moto G hit the scenes back in 2013, the market for good performing, affordable, phones has rocketed – and Motorola has always been there with its own selection.
In the last year, with phones nudging towards a grand (and above for some variants), the need for affordable phones has never been greater and Motorola has now announced four brand-new phones, including better cameras, larger batteries, more processing performance and larger displays.
The following models are detailed below using the text from Motorola’s press release.
Hopefully I’ll have an opportunity to look at these devices in more detail on, or before, Mobile World Congress at the end of this month.
