Moto X

Awesome smartphone with 4K video

The 2014 model of the Motorola Moto X is a second-generation mobile phone and there are some notable upgrades in comparison to the 2013 model (its direct and only predecessor). This mid-sized smartphone boasts the quality of being somewhat amenably priced in comparison to its main competitors such as the iPhone and the Samsung Galaxy. Still, there are a number of worthwhile features which allow the Moto X to be attractive to many users.

To begin with, a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor is seen as a slight improvement over the 1.7 GHz dual-core variant that was seen in the 2013 Moto X. This comes alongside an impressive memory capacity of two gigabytes of RAM; ideal for most games and applications. Finally, the Adreno 330 graphics processing unit is seen as being one of the best in its class for this medium-priced smartphone. Note there is no expandable storage for the 2014 Moto X.

The build of the phone itself is another truly stunning feature. An aluminum chassis is seen by many to be a step up from the hard plastic case of the previous model. Perhaps most interestingly, the screen size has been increased from 4.7 to 5.2 inches while only adding a negligible weight increase to the phone. The edges of the unit are smooth and allow for easy handling. As the structure will not flex (a problem with the 2013 model as well as the previous Moto G), the physical integrity of this phone has vastly increased.

From a graphical standpoint, the 5.2-inch display is certainly not to be overlooked. With a resolution of no less than 423 pixels per inch, users can now enjoy full high-definition graphics (in comparison to the 4.7-inch screen of the 2013 Moto X). AMOLED technology has once again in the unit and this adoption enables bright and realistic colours. Combined with the aforementioned processing power, users will have no problem playing the latest games or watching their favourite videos.

Finally, the thirteen megapixel camera is another improvement over the ten megapixels offered by the previous model. Note that this camera is also able to record 4K video; an enviable quality for what many consider to be a middle-market unit.

Combining a robust processing power, streamlined features, a wider screen and excellent graphics, the Motorola Moto X is indeed an example of the heightened technology that is now being employed in mid-range smartphones.

Moto E

Moto E

The latest edition to Motorola’s line up of smartphones is the Moto E, a reasonably priced smartphone that is big on features. The Moto E is designed to be a cheaper alternative to the already budget-friendly Moto G.

The Moto E has a simple design that is sophisticated and unassuming, certainly not boring. The phone Moto E is a little chunky as it clocks in at 12.3 mm thin. However, the subtle curve in the design of the rear panel makes it very comfortable to hold. The Moto E is also super durable as the display is coated with Corning Gorilla Glass to protect against scuffs and scratches. In addition, the phone has a water-resistant splash guard, protecting it against spills and splashes.

The phone has a 4.3 inch screen with a 960 x 540 pixel display. While this may be a little wanting for some, given the Moto E’s rock-bottom price, it is class-leading. The Moto E runs on Android 4.4.2 and while the OS has been pretty much left untouched by Motorola, Motorola have preloaded the phone with a careful selection of apps. As well as the basic Google Apps, like Google Maps and Gmail, the Moto E comes with Migrate and Assist. Migrate is a helpful application that allows you to easily transfer all of the content from your old phone, such as contacts, messages and data, seamlessly to your new Moto E. Assist is perhaps the most useful of the Moto E’s Motorola apps. Assist allows you to set times when your notifications won’t go off, such as in meetings or while at college.

The Moto E comes with 4GB of on-board memory which is enough for most basic smartphone users. However, if you need to top up the on-board memory there is a microSD slot which allows you add up to a further 32GB of memory to the cellphone.

Moto G

Moto G

If you are looking for a decent Android smartphone at a reasonable price, Motorola’s highest selling cellphone, the Moto G, may just be the phone for you. Frequently dubbed as the best budget cell phone around, the Moto G has all things you want at a price you will love!

The Moto G has a respectable 4.5 inch screen with minimum bezel and stunning HD resolution, making it the best in its class. In addition, the 329ppi resolution of the Moto G trumps the display of the premium iPhone 5s. The Moto G is available in a whole array of colors, and if you get bored of the color or just fancy a change, the back panel is interchangeable.

The cellphone is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor and is backed up 1GB of RAM, making it a worthy contender not only in the budget cellphone market, but also in the mid-range cellphone market as many mid-rangers sport just dual-core processors.

On the back of the phone there is a 5MP camera complete with an LED that is perfect for taking pictures on the go. The Moto G’s camera application also offers a range of extra features and functions such as panorama shot to help you optimize your photos to perfection. On the front of the Moto G there is a 1.3MP front-facing camera which is excellent for both taking front-facing pictures and making video calls.

Priced at a respectable $135 for the 8GB model and $175 for the 16GB model, the Moto G is a great phone for those who want to buy a phone upfront without being tied into a contract. If 16GB storage is not enough for you, the Moto G not only has a MicroSD slot allowing you to boost memory by a further 32GB, but Moto G users also get 50GB of free storage on Google Drive for 2 years.
