If price is everything, this is the budget phone to buy

Motorola Moto G5

from Pocket-lint
With other manufacturers pushing into pricier brackets, the Moto G5 sticks to its £169 guns and delivers a fairly knock-out performance for the price point. It's more sophisticated to look at than its G4 predecessor, will handle all manner of tasks easily, and has a nifty fingerprint scanner too... Full review

Great screen and performance marred by an underwhelming battery

Motorola Moto G4 Plus

from TechRadar
At a starting price of Rs 13,499, the Moto G4 Plus is a compelling buy. It performs well, runs on stock android and has a superb display and fingerprint sensor. However, the mediocre battery life, the underwhelming camera and the all plastic build let it down... Full review

Superior set of hardware and build quality

Motorola Moto G5 Plus

from GSMArena

As the phone that single-handedly created the quality budget smartphone category, we hold the Moto G in high regard and also have high expectations from very new device in the lineup. The Moto G5 we tested earlier didn't quite meet our expectations in that regard. However, the G5 Plus hits the mark and reminds us again why we love this series. It's far from perfect and there are areas where we would like to see it improve. We could use a bit more power under the hood. The design could bit a bit more compact and make better use of space. The design itself could also stand to improve aestheti... Full review

World's thinnest smartphone is also the best modular phone

Motorola Moto Z

from TechRadar
Moto Z is an incredibly thin Android phone, yet it's still able to boast the specs of its rival and add modular accessories to the mix. This is a stepping stone to a fully modular phone. We only wish we could exchange its big camera bump for the sorely missing 3.5mm headphone jack... Full review

Inexpensive can be exciting

Motorola Moto G5

from finder.com.au
Motorola has enjoyed a lot of success with the Moto G line, and it’s not hard to see why. The Moto G5 isn’t a stellar handset in performance terms, but it’s an entirely suitable one for essential smartphone tasks, priced in a way that makes it appealing on its own terms... Full review

A modular smartphone with an interesting array of extras.

Motorola Moto Z Play

from Coolsmartphone
If you want the most flexible option on sale right now with a great battery, decent camera and a handy front-facing flash, then the Z Play is an amazing choice. The free speaker makes it a great deal... Full review

Almost perfect as a midrange device

Motorola Moto G5

from Canadian Reviewer
The Moto G5 is a tremendous accomplishment, specially for the price. It is almost perfect as a midrange device and is really one NFC chip and USB Type-C port away from being a great choice. For users who don't see themselves using mobile payments or want the latest standard in connectivity, the Moto G5 will be sufficient for most of their needs... Full review

A $250 smartphone with everything you need

Motorola Moto G5

from Mobile Syrup
At $250 and with so much to commend it, the Moto G5 has become my new favourite budget device, and in some respects rates on a par with mid-range devices I’ve tried, particularly when it comes to battery, design and UI. Those who don’t need a premium device or are looking for a phone to buy outright for easy roaming might be hard pressed to find a better all-encompassing option... Full review

A decent cheap phone that gets the job done

Motorola Moto G5

from PhoneArena
This super cheap price segment that the Moto G5 belongs to is all about compromise, though, and the G5 makes a lot of those compromises: the design is outdated, the camera is decidedly average, battery life is good, but not great, and the performance is decent, but not future-proof. That said, we can't deny the fact that the Moto G5 presents us with what's probably the best possible all-around experience at this super-low price point... Full review

A very interesting lower midrange alternative

Motorola Moto G5

from Notebookcheck
At first glance we can already tell that the Moto G5 is indeed a very interesting smartphone: affordable yet equipped with a premium display, light metal case, decent interior, and user replaceable battery. Lenovo seems to be on a mission to prove that even competing in the lower midrange market doesn’t necessarily have to mean dark, low resolution displays and slow communication ICs... Full review
Nothing special compared to what's available on the market with those specs. Better off buying an iphone or Samsung.

since i have gotten this phone, ive had nothing but problems.

Motorola Moto X

This phone doesn't have a block number feature, the backing pops off too easily and its hard to find a decent case for this phone. Ive had two of these phones, one being a replacement and the battery is expanding and it shuts off saying its dead even though its fully charged.

Like I say, I need to have a call or e-mail to figure it out how I can pay all that without income in my life because, I don't have any revenue presently. Maybe you can call be back and we will discuss about this cell phone I don't use and make an arrangement, Talk too you soon & I will bring my phone so you will see the problem but it's just then one problem and they continu to bill me before avertissement so I don't know what to do with that :\ Less

Really Good for the price!

Motorola Moto G

I've been using this phone for less than a year, but so far so good! I have no complaints about anything other than the amount of storage available on this phone. I would buy again

Buyer Beware

Motorola Moto G

This phone has a major design flaw - it won't allow you to disable the Google now launcher or any Google app so if the apps are unstable you are basically screwed.

This phone has a major design flaw - it won't allow you to disable the Google now launcher or any Google app so if the apps are unstable you are basically screwed. For me it kept launching and simply disabling the app would have fixed this but I didn't have the option - you can't uninstall it. It also doesn't come with a decent music player so you have to download an app (ad-supported or you pay), it doesn't allow you to put it into silent mode, only vibrate or volume unless you want to turn off all sounds including your alarm, it doesn't come with a pre-installed texting app, disabling Moto Actions still does not allow you to turn off the "shake to activate camera" option it only works in turning off the instant flashlight, you can't save pics directly to sim card you have to manually drag and drop them there, and the list goes on. Highly uncustomizable phone and the longer you have it the more of a pain in to a$$ it becomes. The people at Motorola are clearly lacking in common sense to make a phone like this. Only plusses are the camera quality (although it's difficult to zoom and focus), and the battery. DO NOT BUY! Less

About Motorola

Motorola proved the naysayers wrong and got this whole crazy cell phone business started back in the 1980’s when they produced “The Brick”, a large, um, ‘portable’ cell phone that was short on looks, but worked!

Show more

Shortly thereafter, business really took off when Motorola came out with the StarTac, a sexy flip that was futuristic by anyone’s standards at the time and a huge seller.

Since those early days, Motorola has continued to produce numerous and popular phones, including the extremely successful Razr, a model which ushered in the “thin” fad.

Unfortunately, Motorola has hit hard times during the past couple years with a combination of record losses, an exodus of top CEO’s and ultimately the company being put up for sale.

Motorola is based in Schaumburg, Illinois and was founded in 1928 as the Galvin Manufacturing Corporation.
