PRICE AND RELEASE DATE :
While the company has announced India pricing and availability of the Moto G (Gen 2), it has yet to disclose the pricing for the Moto X (Gen 2) in India – though Motorola did say it will be made available in the month of sepetember. The company however has disclosed US pricing at $179.99 (roughly Rs12,999) unlocked.
One of the benefits of buying a Motorola smartphone is that you essentially get plain Android. There’s already a guarantee of an upgrade to Android L when it launches, but it ships with KitKat 4.4.4.
With a bigger screen, much better speakers and improved cameras, the new Moto G is a great budget smartphone. However, the lack of a processor upgrade or a boost in screen resolution means it’s arguably not as good value as the original Moto G was when it launched. That’s also because the new Moto G has considerably tougher competition to deal with. There are cheaper options if your budget won’t stretch this far, but if you’re specifically looking for a budget dual-SIM Android phone, it’s a good choice.
