Just a few years back, not everyone had a mobile phone. When mobile phones made a debut across the country, their usage was restricted. They were expensive and not everyone could afford them.

Motorola Moto G Smartphone Review

TheStreet (Dec. 26, 2013) — Motorola's new Moto G Android smartphone is essentially a Moto X built to sell at a low, unsubsidized price. The Moto G handset has only one processor, a 4.5 inch touchscreen, a 4-megapixel rear camera, and either 8 or 16 gigabytes of storage. The rear panel of the device can be swapped out for a different color if desired, and the device lacks Google's voice control "OK Google." The Moto G is priced at $179 for the 8 gigabyte version with no contract required, or $199 for the 16 gigabyte model.
