Affordable Android smartphones are nothing new. Many phone makers have released a sub-£200 Android handset in the past few years, but so far none of these phones have been particularly good. At best the cheap Android handsets have been usable, often featuring disappointingly low-resolution displays, low-power processors and in general running using an outdated version of Android.
Motorola moved to change this when it released its new Moto G handset. Despite costing a modest £135 the Moto G actually features some pretty decent components. Chief of these are its 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor and 4.5in, 1280x720, 329ppi display. Even better, while the Moto G currently runs on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, Motorola is rolling out an update to 4.4 KitKat now, so all devices should have completely up-to-date software soon.
