Motorola has been in the news again with the proposed release of its next generation smartphone, the Moto X2 or the Moto X+1.
The Moto X2 is yet another much-awaited smartphone, besides the likes of iPhone 6 and the Samsung Note 4. Motorola has earned respect in the smartphone arena with its decent smartphones, coming at lower prices. The Moto G is readily available in the market at a reasonable price of $179. With the combination of low price with almost similar specs, as that of high-end smartphones, the Motorola Company has given the other companies a run for their money. However, Motorola believes in getting the things done. Maybe, that is why Motorola’s smartphones are not high spec devices. Nevertheless, the smartphones offer a decent performance.
Let us compare the Moto G in terms of features and specs, believed to be offered by the upcoming Moto X2.
In terms of design, the Moto G resembles the Moto X smartphone. The device comes with a curved back panel that provides a smooth handling experience.
