The Motorola Moto G is tooled with a smaller (4.5 inches) IPS LCD display that can render a higher resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. While the screen is smaller, this device is actually the thickest of them all (dimensions: 129.9 x 65.9 x 11.6 mm). It is also the lightest of the three, weighing 143 g.

The device supports 1GB of RAM and it can be purchased with two variants of internal memory: 8GB and 16GB (there is no microSD – meaning that the memory is not expandable).
