Motorola adds 4G and microSD card slot to make the Moto G even better

Motorola adds 4G and microSD card slot to make the Moto G even betterThere were a few whispers that something Moto G-related could also be on the cards alongside the endlessly leaked Motorola Moto E over the past week, and turns out the whispers were worth listening to.

Motorola has updated the much loved Moto G with 4G capability, but more importantly has added a microSD card slot and a 16GB on-board storage option to address one of the only real criticisms we had of the device.

Everything else stays as is, including the near-stock standard Android 4.4 KitKat OS that Motorola has cleverly opted to leave largely untouched.

Inevitably, the new Motorola Moto G is slightly more expensive than the existing model at £149 (or £159 for the 16GB edition), but the good news is the original non-4G Moto G will still be available at a reduced price of as little as £119.

All variants share the 4.3in 720p display, as well as the 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, broadly capable 5MP camera and 2070mAh battery.

The revised Motorola Moto G lineup will be available at all the usual online and physical retailers and service providers within the next couple of weeks.

Err, can't you get one for £100 pretty much all the time in the UK?

Yep, Moto G 8Gb is £100 + unlock code.
I can't understand why Moto E is hot @ £89.99

I can sell you mine. Still got plastic on it.

I'm willing to wait 6-12 months for this phone, should be reduced and good value by then.

£150 or £160 is good value, especially seeing as, if the 3G Moto G is anything to go by, it'll likely be available for even less than that from various places.
