Motorola just announced the Moto G, and this is very interesting. They tried to prove that specs are not everything with the Moto X; that a positive user experience can be had without cramming all of the latest hardware into the phone. Now they look to add to that, but this time at a much lower price point and with a launch that is not US only. The Moto G will be SIM unlocked, unlockable bootloader, and all for $179/$199 for the 8/16GB models. With this announcement, Motorola stressed that you do not need to spend $600 for an enjoyable mobile experience. Having used the Moto X, I think they are very much headed in the right direction, my experience is way more important than what processor the phone has.
-4.5-inch HD display
-the newest Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 400 processor featuring a quad-core CPU
-all-day battery life
-Android 4.3 Jellybean, with a guaranteed upgrade to Android 4.4 KitKat at the beginning of 2014
-No skins to clutter or slow the experience
