Here we have done a Quick Moto G 3 Review – Once again Motorola has come up with their latest smartphone MOTO G 3RD GEN, this July with some new surprises. This time the Lenovo owned company is attracting the smartphone market by introducing the water resistant product within the Rs 10,000-12,000 price range (more or less $180). Tech press is anticipating this device to give a tough fight to the hot favorite budget Android phones those are ruling the market presently.
The “just launched” Moto G 3rd Gen is a new variant of the Moto G, introduced last year. But users will enjoy the new build, the more RAM, water-resistant feature, and the much awaiting upgraded front and rare cameras. In comparison to the last Moto G, the new Moto G 3rd Gen is predicted to beat the rivals even after the entry of the pocket-friendly and super-efficient Android Phones such as Lenovo K3 Note, Xiaomi Mi 4i, and several Chinese devices that had already inundated the markets.
Design and Built
There is nothing specific to mention about the looks of the smartphone. It’s better to consider it as a typical Motorola but with some uniqueness. The secure grip is impressive and users will actually have a “feel-good” effect after holding the device. The company has created the phone in both Black and in White. But the best part is that they have balanced between the functionality and the design smartly.
We shouldn’t consider the phone to be tiny for its 5-inch display. In fact, users will prefer the compactness in the design, particularly the screen-to-body ratio of the Moto G 3rd Gen. The 720p display of the new Android device may not be that impressive in compared to a few others within this cost. So, users may not have that WOW effect after seeing the display, but for your information, there is no issue of pixelation noticed. The best part of the screen is the Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Checking the phone under the bright sunlight is a decent experience.
Now let’s enter the most interesting feature of the Moto G 3rd Gen. Users can be highly benefited from the water resistant feature of the smartphone as claimed by Motorola. As per the specifics, the phone can survive the data, hardware everything at a depth of 3 meters water for around 30 minutes. This really sounds great as we store many important data in the phone daily and protecting them from water is really a great initiative. But users shouldn’t try to judge the water resistant capability by swimming with the phone in the pocket. Better they should save it for the emergencies.
The back of the smartphone is removable but to allow the IPX7 water resistance, the battery is kept sealed. According to various sources, because of the water-resistance feature the price is high; otherwise the phone with full HD display and octa-core processor could have been ranging from the Rs. 8, 000-10, 000 standards.
The new Moto G 3rd Gen is available with the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop. Besides including some of the own system apps, this smartphone of Motorola has quite similar interface of Google Nexus. But the camera, messaging and the gallery apps are fully customized.
Performance and Battery-
A question will genuinely come to the shopper’s head why does the lower end range 1GB RAM/ 8GB storage actually exists? With just a price difference of Rs. 1,000, why should people buy the lower end range when they can pay Rs. 12,999 for the higher end phones that ensure 2GB RAM and 16 GB storage! We strongly recommend buyers to opt for the high-end devices to experience the better performance. The 4G support on the SIM is also creating no hassles. In fact, it runs excellent even when you are playing game online. The overall call quality and loudspeaker performances are pleasing.
The battery life may not satisfy users if they spend the heavy day outdoors and mainly using 3G and 4G networks. But if they use WIFI or cellular data only during the time of using -at home or at work, they can possibly save more battery life.
Camera for Moto G3
The upgraded 13 MP rare and 5 MP front cameras for selfies give a great photo shooting experience. But the camera works brilliantly in the outdoors under the sun and well-lit areas.
