As we have seen in all Moto G models, they follow the pattern of their ancestors and blend new features. The best thing about the Moto G series handsets are that the prices of the devices are pocket friendly, and yet tries to accommodate all latest technologies available. Another thing that earns these devices additional cookie points is that they always receive the Android new versions before many leading flagship devices. In this race, Samsung always lags behind Motorola handsets, no matter how many S and Note devices they have in their credit.
