Moto G 2015 Review (Quick): The best budget smartphone
The third-generation Moto G is the best thus far, with most of the features you want, and a price that’s almost impossible to beat. The smartphone has an excellent camera and buttery smooth performance. Display feels sharp, and colors are also excellent.
5 Inch screen. It has a 720p resolution. The 720p display looks bright and crisp; you probably won’t notice that it isn’t higher resolution because, at 294 PPI, Moto G 2015 still feels Full HD. The display on the front of the Moto G 3 is protected by smooth Gorilla Glass 3. Corning Gorilla Glass spans 3rd gen Moto G from adjacent edge to edge to help keep your phone protected from unsightly scrapes and scratches.
Moto G 3 features a 13-megapixel camera that uses a Sony IMX214 Exmor RS sensor with f/2.0 aperture and True-Tone LED flash. This is the same sensor used in the Nexus 6, but this lacks OIS. It has a 5-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture. Video recording: 1080p video rec, 30fps Water Resistant: The Moto G 3rd gen most notable new feature is its water-resistant design. The phone is IPX7-rated and can be submerged in up to three feet of water for up to 30 minutes. Moto G is ready to weather any storm with you, protection from splashes and accidental drops in water.
The Moto G 3 comes in two versions: 8GB of storage and 1GB of RAM or 16GB storage and 2GB of RAM + Micro SD card slot (up to 32GB)
Moto G 3rd Gen features Quad-core, 1400 MHz, ARM Cortex-A53, 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset which is the same as found in the new Moto E 4G.OS:
Stock Android fans will also be glad to know that the third- gen Moto G3 comes with essentially vanilla Android 5.1 on-board. And Now Receiving Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update in Some countries. The Indian Moto G3 model XT1550 is also receiving the Marshmallow update over-the-air (OTA).
The new Moto G3 comes with 4G LTE connectivity. And Bluetooth 4.0, FM radio and GPS are also in it. Visit Wikipedia page for further information regarding the band and freq.
Let’s talk battery life of Moto G 3. It has Non-removable Li-Ion 2470 mAh battery. Capacity wise, we’re looking at a 2470 mAh battery. Just about 3% less than the much more expensive Samsung Galaxy S6. You’ll probably get a full day’s use out of the Moto G 3rd gen. And the standby time is very impressive. There’s no turbocharging, and no turbocharger with Moto G3 accessories.
Moto G 3 will be a step up in everything from hardware to software and will release in September, but we are expecting an early release in the 4th week of July this year. According to the sources, Moto G3 was released on 28 July 2015.
Disclaimer: – Although Moto G 3rd Gen has received official Android 6.0 Marshmallow update but we suggest you not to upgrade to it. The update has some issues and bugs on it. Most of the users are reporting that after the update they are facing heating problems and force close issues. In some countries, the front camera is not working and back camera is taking too bad photos. Users are also reporting that auto sync is not functioning properly and they have to do a reboot to get that work.
Some users reported that their contacts are not displaying and on phone calls, they hear some hissing sounds. Indian users are getting some other issues too like a random reboot, fast battery drain and auto disconnection of WiFi signals on their phone. So please do not upgrade to Marshmallow until a bug fix. We will update after a firmware fix update till then do not upgrade your phone.

continuously with mobile turned off.I am ready to speak to anyone and if

how to purchase moto g3
You can purchase after 28 July.
Flipkart have some stocks of moto g3 check it.
Du you have any information about the place that can be buy from USA after july 28th
It may release on 27th of July..Hope so.. waiting badly
I am waiting moto g 3rdgen
What are the sources that it will have 2 GB RAM? That would be great news!
Is the size of this 3rd gen Moto G close enough to the 2nd gen Moto G, so that we can use 2nd gen phone cases? Or will we have to wait for new 3rd gen Moto G sized cases to become available?
2 GB Ram news is true and it will also launch with Motomaker and yes the size is same but not exactly same.
i think there is no way that it will be out with a 13 mp cam from moto in that price range…if it happens definitely price may go up…glad to buy if the info is true…that would be a great decision from moto…
What about now.
plzz provide real info about g3 i was eagerly waiting for it ….but recent leaks just doent impress me at all ..all same old specs with 720p display….410 snapdragon chipset and just 1 gb ram ….i think moto e 4g would be better to consider looking at the price
What do you think? Do you really think that Motorola is dumb corp with no intelligent people no bro the rumors are rumors you can’t say anything before the release and yes Motorola knows what people want from them so don’t worry and stay connected with us.
I don’t trust them they are actually not real because of the kernel version and somebody told me that the phone is using Dalvik and Lollipop uses ART so the photos are not real.
have you seen the latest leaks and rumours of g3……very disappointing specs ..they are surely falling behind this year …no major updates or improvements ….just the camera is upgraded ….that dont make any sence…they ruined it this year
They all are based on a fake video nothing else.
See the above comments
Today new rumours are coming.NO change in hardware ,only change in camera.Its very disappointing….
There is no confirmation of them and all are based on a video.
My moto g2 lags a lot.So I am aiming g3
previous version we got only charger out of the box , will this version provide charger + data cable like others
There is no confirmation about the in box accessories.
what will be the in box Ear-phones…..of Moto G 3
waiting waiting to buy this phone
I have moto x 2013 my phone is heated up when i use internet or not using internet.
Please help me to resolve it.
Well sometimes a quick restore can solve this problem.
It is because of network strength or software
I expect some better than Moto G2
Wipe cache partition
It’s time to replace my Galaxy S3 🙂
It’s time to replace my Galaxy S1… 😀
You won 😉
Same here bro 😉
Is there any chance that it might come by mid june?
Maybe but not sure july and August has higher chances for moto g 3 launch.
maybe but no confirmation yet.
iam wating to buy
many website says that 16mp or 10mp primary camera. is it true means moto g 3rd gen surely hit in the market
8Mp with lot’s of improvement or 13.1 MP
its of no use because now a days people have a demand of high specifications whew Here moto g3still looks very old .
.no promising.looks as well simply waste build
Performance depends on hardware and software optimization for the hardware
That’s why iPhones run smoothly.
13 mp camera confirmed by various sources.
The information of Moto g3 has been updated.
Improve a lot in.8 mp or change it with 13mp
13 mp camera is a confirmed specification.
That’s Great! what about release date? July !….Waiting Badly 🙂
Damn! August 🙁 … I thought it might be July… OK.. Better to wait for the thing!
July for brazil.
28 July is confirmed Motorola has a public release on the day maybe it’s Moto G 3rd Gen.
