Google through its acquired Motorola has just unveiled a game changing device, the Moto G! What makes this device a game changing affair is that it is packed with features that are hard to believe at the price offer.
Google also seems to be setting the pace for firms like Samsung that low cost Android devices do not have to be so poor in quality, like the Galaxy Pockets and Aces!
Below are some of the specs this phone carries and a comparison with the G-Tel 717 for good measure
Feature G-Tel 717 Moto G
OS Android* Android 4.3
Screen 4.7 Inches 312ppi 4.5 Inches 326 ppi
Camera 8 MP 5 MP
Proc Quad Core 1.2 Gig* Quad Core 1.2 Gig *
Battery 1800 mAh 2070 mAh
Memory 5 Gig in-built 8 Gig in-built
Display Type Amoled Corning Gorilla 3
Price $395.00 $180.00
As you can see the above, the G-Tel is blown out of water and does not hold a candle to the Moto G. Also note that, the G-Tel is using an inferior MediaTek chipset and the moto G is using a superior Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset.
Also, the G-Tel compromised on Glass type as they use some form of cheap Amoled glass whereas, the Moto G uses Gorilla Glass 3.
The battery is where the Moto G really shines.
Note again that the G-Tel has 312 pixels per inch stretched over 4.7 inches of screen yet the Moto G has 326 pixels per inch stretched over 4.5 inches meaning that the Moto G has crispier screen quality.
Besides, the Moto G has a guaranteed software update to Android 4.4 Kitkat next year January. With G-Tel the software you buy pre-loaded is all you have to live with until your phone dies!
Some of you may argue that the Moto G will be expensive once it lands in Zimbabwe. Yes, if you are willing to be conned and go the I will buy it from shops route, then yes it will be expensive. Zimbabweans you have to learn to be patient and buy online, wait 14 – 21 days and you have your product.
For instance, if you buy the Moto G online, like we will be doing, you have to part ways with
15% VAT = 0.15 x $180 = $27
Plus $20 Shipping
To make it $47
So $180 + $47 = $227
The only throwback is that you have to wait for your device 2 to 3 weeks…. but still you are getting a superior device from the G-Tel 717 and on a much cheaper price point!
