Motorola

The Moto G was being pushed because of the price tag. For those that doubt the phone it will only take holding it to understand this is one solid phone. It feels expensive without the price tag. Hold an expensive phone in one hand and the Moto G in the other and you decide which one feels sturdier. When it comes to the design and shape it resembles the Moto X.

Customization

Moto X was huge on customization and Moto G will not be left behind. Snapping off the back cover is easy and there is a variety of other colors that can be snapped on. The memory slot card may not be hiding, but a bundle can be made with the Google Drive 65GB. Motorola claims the battery will stay charged for an entire day, it is not removable.

Considering the glass is known as Gorilla Glass hopefully it will with stain from cracking when accidentally being dropped.
