    the single button navigation at the finger print scanner! OMG! Simply amazing! Using it for 6 weeks now, surprised it's not a feature on every phone out there. Works like a charm!

    Larger camera sensor...larger bump on the back. Travelers like me look for phones with larger sensors for a better quality photo and backup camera. I loved the Nokia 1020 despite it's huge bump. I easily overlooked it because it made up for that inconvenience in awesome picture quality.

    Ok, you need to look at Xiaomi Redmi lineup. I was skeptical, but they are really great phones. They do use custom MIUI, but other than that, great phones.. Moto G is too expensive for them.

    I've been through the Moto G4 and Moto X pure. Enough is enough - motorolla SUCKS. The quality of design and assembly is sub par by a massive margin. I don't feel like shelling out another 300$ only to be stuck 8 months later with a glitchy piece of crap. Xiaomi here I come..

    So true about the lack of stereo front speakers. When the X pure came out you got stereo speakers, high resolution 5.7 screen etc for very similar price. Crazy how they give and take.

    Why does a camera bump matter when anyone in their right mind is going to put a cover on the phone? And for the same reason, why do these guys make such a big deal out of "build quality"? What they are describing as build qaulity is more about how the phone feels in the hand. Again, it won't matter when the cover is on. Sadly, these guys tend to either over-hype or beat up a phone according to how they like the "build quality".

    Hey MK, can you please compare these budget phones with last gen (or two gens back) phones? I am trying to figure out if I should get this for my wife or grab an s6 active.

    The camera obviously won't be as good as flagships of same gen but is it better than a used 2015 flagship?

  • Augusto Lugo
    Augusto Lugo 18 days ago

    You failed to mention the screen resolution, the fact that the camera can record 4k video and you get Google updates and running the latest Google updates :) so it is a winner in my book.

    Hate that Motorola was bought over by Lenovo, there's a clear difference between the 2013 Moto G and the 2014 version. So much so that post buying the upgrade, I returned it, because it felt too much like a downgrade.
