Moto G review (2015): Motorola wins the 'best cheap phone' crown, again

Oh, how far we've come. Smartphone makers are really trying to nail the "high-quality, low-cost" formula this year, and they're working up ways to sell straight to consumers too. Even with all that new competition, the Motorola Moto G's blend of performance, clean software and a mostly solid camera make it the best bang for your Android buying buck... for now, anyway.

Pros
  • Fast, fluid performance
  • Camera is a big leap over last year's model
  • Finally has US LTE support
  • That price!
Cons
  • Camera is weak in low light
  • Notification light is gone
  • Base model only has 1GB of RAM
