Motorola has just revealed its third-generation Moto G in the US, and its best-selling device now has a waterproof shell and Moto Maker customization. As rumored, it's mostly similar to the last model, spec-wise, but has gotten a little better across the board for about the same price. The $180 device packs a 5-inch, 720p screen, 1GB RAM and 8GB of internal memory, as before. But it now has a quad-core Snapdragon 410 chip, 2GB RAM option and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop "with zero bloat" out of the box, according to Motorola. And the Moto G now has a 13-megapixel Nexus 6 camera module, which should make for considerably better photos than the previous 8-megapixel unit.

Other specs include 4G LTE (something that took a while to get to previous models), a 20 percent beefier 2,470mAh battery and upgradeable microSD memory. Perhaps the best news of all is for lovers of Moto Maker. As rumored, the Moto G now has the customization feature made famous by the Moto X, meaning if you don't like the stock black or white colors, you can select from a variety of shells in orange, green, pink and other hues. It's also IPX7 certified for water and dust resistance. The new handset goes on sale today around the world for $180 in the US and £160 in the UK with 8GB of memory and 1GB RAM. The Moto Maker option bumps that to $220 and £180, respectively.
