It isn't quite as cheap as older models in the line, but the Moto G 3 (2015) is undoubtedly still a bargain. Why has Motorola inched up the price? It's added water resistance and the option to customise it using the Moto Maker service to the G's armoury.

Motorola’s included a larger battery too, with the G now capable of going for over a day and a half between charges. Its 5-inch, 720p screen is actually one of its least impressive features, though it’s still decent enough.  

The new 13-megapixel main camera is a huge improvement on the 8-megapixel sensor of old, and performance is every bit as slick as you expect it to be. However, it's worth noting that the 16GB version not only features more storage than its 8GB sibling, but also double the RAM.

A terrific handset, though we'd still recommend the Moto G 2 (2014) if you can't quite stretch to £160.
