The much-awaited Moto G will officially be available in the country on 21 January 2014. Those who are less patient will be able to pre-order the Moto G through Storekini from now until 22 January at a recommended retail price of RM688 for the 8GB version and RM788 for the 16GB version. The pre-order deal (check it out here) also includes a complimentary black Motorola Flip Cover (worth RM128).
After the pre-booking period the Moto G will be available with an additional Motorola Shell (worth RM78). The smartphone also comes with an extra 50GB of Google Drive storage for two years; which the company says will store about 7,000 music files or 14,000 pictures. However, the offer must be redeemed within 30 days of activation of the phone or it will lapse.
Stay tuned as we update this space with more information.
The Moto G marks Motorola’s commitment to giving users on a budget a phone that does not feel like it costs RM700, but much more. The Moto G comes with a beautiful 4.5inch 720p display at a whopping 329ppi, Motorola claims it to be the sharpest in its class. In the interest of power saving, the Moto G features a Quad Core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with a 2,070 mAh battery.While the camera is a 5MP shooter, this is probably the only thing that is true to the price point. On top of this, the Moto G will also feature Dual-Sim card slots for those who use two phone lines! With the addition of the interchangeable coloured backs, the Moto G brings a little customisability to what usually is a market dominated by similar looking silhouettes and design.
The Moto G certainly is a very fully featured smartphone for an amazing price! It seems like Motorola have brought an incredible package to the budget end of the Android phone spectrum.
We’re looking forward to getting this phone in for review to find out IF the RM700 Moto G will stack up against its more expensive competitors! What do you think? Leave a question in the comments below!
