When it comes to smartphones, sometimes we feel let down. The things that matter most — like taking great photos at our kids’ soccer games, video chatting with mom or having all-day battery life — simply don’t live up to our expectations.
It shouldn’t be this way. Smartphones should focus on technology that prioritizes the things people really care about.
That’s how we designed the next generation of our best-selling smartphone, Moto G. And because we know people are unique and use their phones differently, we added two new members to the family: Moto G Plus and Moto G Play. Each of them has meaningful technology, so you never have to miss what matters most to you.
Want to learn more about the new Moto G family? Take a behind-the-scenes look at The Moto G Exhibit from our event in São Paulo, Brazil.
The thinner fourth-generation Moto G has a vivid 5.5” full HD display and a 13MP camera for crystal-clear, share-worthy pics. Its 3000 mAh battery and blazing-fast octacore processor will get you through afternoon video calls with family and into the evening out with friends.1 And when you finally need a battery boost, TurboPowerTM gives you six hours of power in just 15 minutes.2
You can also design your Moto G to match your style on Moto Maker or by switching up colors with interchangeable shells. All for an exceptional price.
Moto G Plus has all the features of Moto G, along with some new features designed for those who need even more from their phone. The first is an impressive camera. There’s nothing worse than missing a moment. Now you won’t. The 16MP camera on Moto G Plus has two additional rapid focus technologies, laser focus and phase detect autofocus so you always nab sharp, clear pictures, day and night. DxOMark, the trusted industry standard for camera and lens image quality ratings, has rated the Moto G Plus photo quality among the top smartphone cameras, ahead of iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, and other phones that are more than twice its price.3
Tired of fumbling with your phone to switch it on and sign in? With a fingerprint reader typically found in more expensive devices, a touch is all you need to instantly wake up your phone. You can even use it to authorize purchases on the Google Play StoreTM.
Moto G Play gives you more of what you love, like fast, reliable performance of a quadcore processor. It's designed to last a full day, thanks to its 2800 mAh battery. And it boosts performance by running a pure, clutter-free version of AndroidTM. The best part? You only have to spend a little for a phone you’ll love a lot.
