When Moto G launched in earlier in February 2014, I said that it is a ‘Value for Money’ Android smartphone start from RM698 (8GB).

Moto G had set a new hardware specs for budget smartphone. It was a good buy that I recommended to everyone. Apparently, Moto G is the best selling smartphone in Motorola’s history.

Few months passed, Moto G’s specs and price are no longer competitive. We already have many new smartphone models under RM800.

Moto G with 4G LTE

In July 2014, Motorola is working with Brightstar again and introducing Moto G with 4G LTE in Malaysia.

The new model includes two missing features in Moto G — 4G LTE and memory expansion slot (support up to 32GB).

However, Moto G with 4G LTE does NOT support Dual SIM and no 16GB model (in Malaysia).

The question is, how important is 4G LTE speed for you?

Personally, I do not online stream videos on smartphone, 3G or 4G speed does not matter for me. Plus, 4G network coverage is still limited in Malaysia and mobile data quota is expensive.

I would rather use the same money to buy a 3G smartphone with more storage space and better phone specs. Or, you can save money and buy the now cheaper Moto G 3G (RM618) on Lazada.
