Motorola Moto G named 2013 TrustedReviews Product of the Year

The Motorola Moto G has been crowned Product of the Year at the 2013 TrustedReviews Awards as the full list of winners is announced.

A handset that looks set to change the face of the smartphone scene for good, the Motorola Moto G paired a moderate array of specs with a truly bargain price point. A phone that could help spell the end for costly two year deals, the Motorola Moto G launched with a SIM-free price of just £135.

For this minimal fee, the phone partners a solid 1.2GHz quad-core processor with a 4.5-inch 720p HD display and a 5-megapixel rear-mounted camera.

Although not as specs impressive as say the Google Nexus 5 or the 2013 TrustedReviews Phone of the Year, the HTC One, the Motorola Moto G offers an affordable package for the everyman smartphone owner. Powered by Google’s Android 4.3 Jelly BeanOS, the Moto G brings a mid-range spec that includes 1GB of RAM and 16GB of storage to an entry-level price point.

“The Motorola Moto G was a bolt from the blue,” TrustedReviews Editor Evan Kypreos said of the phone. “An almost flagship spec phone for £135. It is almost inconceivable.”

He added: “Aside from the iPad Air it’s the only mobile product that scored 10/10 this year and you can’t really argue with that.

“A phone this good with a price this unbelievably low will challenge the status quo of network operators and expensive 24-month contracts.”

As well as being announced the 2013 TrustedReviews Product of the Year, the Motorola Moto G has walked away with a second price, claiming the accolade of Best Phone Under £250.

With the PS4 having beaten the Xbox One to be announced as the 2013 TrustedReviews Console of the Year earlier this week, we can now announce the full list of winners.
