This second article on the new Motorola presented in Chicago last night focuses on the new Moto G. more a technical update that genuine novelty, this new mobile is not the audacity of his older, a year earlier .
After the Moto X, certainly the most anticipated new product last night in Chicago, Motorola introduced its event at the new Moto G. A mobile that looks more like a patchwork: some good ideas from the Moto X and Moto G 4G, all on a familiar basis: that of the first Moto G. Clearly less surprising that the new Moto X, the new Moto G is almost a disappointment, both technical and tariff level. After clearly shook up the market with the first release, Motorola seems to play here the followers of its own smartphone
A larger screen and a dual speaker in Moto G 4G
First the good news. The new Moto G inherits the new Moto X its dual speaker on the front, which is a great idea (although it is not unusual). The new G gets a new pair of camera sensor, 8 megapixel rear and 2 megapixel front, 5 against and 1.3 megapixels respectively for the Moto G 4G. The new Moto G now offers a 5-inch screen 720p (against 4.5 inches). The new Moto G finally retains the microSD port Moto G 4G.
The same technical platform as the G Moto 3G
Among the bad news, the new Moto G does not systematize 16GB of internal storage, this being an option. The basic version remains at 8 GB. RAM remains at 1 GB and the battery to 2070 mAh. If Motorola has retained his habits, it should still be removable. More bad news, the chipset of the new Moto G is the same as the first Moto G, namely a 400 MSM8226 Snapdragon, a quad-core clocked at 1.2 GHz compatible 3G +. Two consequences: Performance should be constant and 4G is again removed.
What a mistake, we believe, for the one who said “exceptional smartphone at a great price.” For the list price, 189 euros is higher than the first Moto G. And 4G smartphones, there’s even less than 100 euros. That seems a shame.
