Moto G claims Best Value Phone title for second consecutive year

The refreshed Moto G has continued where its predecessor left off, winning the Best Value Phone accolade at the 2014 TrustedReviews Awards.

With the original Moto G having been crowned both Best Value Phone and Product of the Year back in 2013, the 2014-released second-generation model has pushed the brand’s high value proposition on to new heights.

Released in the wake of September’s IFA 2014 conference, the 2014 Moto G has moved to a larger screen, adopted a better camera and be brimmed with more power – all without having a negative effect on your wallet.

Despite taking the title for a second consecutive year, Motorola’s Moto G line has faced renewed competition in 2014.

“There was only really one winner to pick from last year. The Motorola Moto G did for low cost mobile phones what the Nexus 7 did for Android tablets – it raised the bar to another level,” TrustedReviews Editor Evan Kypreos said.

He added: “Thankfully the competition has responded and we didn’t just get great value Android phones like the OnePlus One we also got some superb Windows phones too.”

Ultimately, however, the 2014 Moto proved the standout winner with both the voting public and our panel of expert judges.

Discussing the handset’s winning credentials, Kypreos stated: “Motorola has done it again. The 2014 version of the Moto G improves in all the key areas and deserves to retain its crown this year.”

Having followed smartphone trends to adopt a larger, 5-inch, 720p HD display, the 2014 Moto G specs sheet is further enhanced by a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor and an 8-megapixel, LED-flash enhanced camera.
