Moto G 2 (2014)

Originally reviewed by 15 September 2014

Best Cheap Android Phone

Key features:

•    Great 5-inch 720p IPS screen
•    Improved 8-megapixel camera
•    Still amazing value for money


Building on the success of the original Moto G, the Moto G 2 provides a bigger, albeit same resolution, screen and a vastly improved 8-megapixel camera with a handy HDR mode.

Apart from that, there’s little else that separates the old and new Moto G but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It does still have micro SD card support and a new dual SIM mode if you want to switch between domestic and international calling.

You still get slick performance thanks to the Snapdragon 400 processor with near pure Android 4.4 KitKat, strong battery life with additional power saving modes and it’s wrapped up in a solid, well-built design to give it the look of a more expensive phone.

If you can live without 4G as well, the new Moto G sets the bar for other budget phones. If you still want a great cheap phone that's more pocket-friendly, then the first Moto G could be a better shout.

Price: £140 (£144.99 at time of review)
