Colours are intense, whites are white and black levels are very deep. Viewing angle is good. The device does not attract fingerprints due to the gorilla glass layer on the top.
So as like the Nexus there is no branding on the front just the earpiece grille and front facing camera on the top and the show stealing 4.5inch 720p display. The matte finish back cases are great allowing user to get great grip and comfort holding the device. The build quality of the device is very good comparing to the price of the device.

The app lack ISO and white balance settings so you have to completely trust on Motorola to deliver just the perfect image.

My Final verdict to the Motorola’s Moto G
It is not a High-end phone but can perform like one. Leaving its rival far back in price tag as well in performance. The Moto G is compared to the HTC Mini, Galaxy express and many more.
