Motorola Moto G 3rd Generation 8GB Black - Expert Reviews


Motorola Moto G 3rd Generation has been ultimately launched in an event in New Delhi on July 28, 2015. This is the third smartphone in the Moto G series, which Motorola believes, will make a splash in the Indian market - one of the fastest growing smartphone markets in the world. Moto G 3rd Generation is the best possible Android phone a consumer can get in the budget-to-mid-range affordability category. And while the 8GB model (having 1GB RAM) of the new Moto G 3rd Gen price is Rs.11,999, that of the 16GB model (having 2GB RAM) the price is Rs.12,999.

This new Motorola handset comes with its own system applications such as Camera apps, Messaging, and Gallery. The device also carries an 'Assist' feature - similar to the iPhone feature namely 'Do Not Disturb'. Therefore, with this Motorola phone in hand, you can get similar features of iPhone, that too at an affordable price. The 'Assist' feature helps users through different kinds of alerts including choosing exceptions for some caller who has called twice or to select your 'favourite' callers. You can also send an automated reply to the missed calls or when the phone is in silence mode, say during meetings or sleeping time.

Now, let’s check out the different Moto G 3rd Gen specifications closely.


Motorola Moto G 3rd Gen comes with dual front grilles, wherein one of the grilles is the speaker outlet, and the other at the top of the smartphone is the earpiece. Importantly, both grilles don’t have chrome inserts and are more subtle in nature. This is more similar to what we have seen in the higher versions of Moto – Moto X 2nd Gen etc. You will also find a removable back cover in Motorola Moto G 3rd Gen that shows off a ribbed texture (diagonally), thereby improving the ergonomics of the device, both in terms of grip and aids. Just like its predecessors, you will find multi-coloured back panels, which are basically optional in nature. Furthermore, you will get a metallic strip at the back that not only houses the primary camera lens but also the indented Motorola logo and the new dual-LED flash. These design incorporations give Moto G 3rd Gen a slightly fancy look.

Both the power and volume controls have a metal feel and are very responsive. These keys are located at the right hand edge of this new Motorola device. And while the micro-USB port is located at the bottom of the device, the 3.5mm headset jack has been placed at the top edge. Motorola Moto G 3rd Gen comes with IPX7 rating, which means it can handle accidental fall in water (under 1 metre for 30 minutes). Therefore, Moto G 3rd Gen can be counted among the most affordable water resistant mobile phones that are available in the market. On the other hand, this phone is a bit heavy at 155 grams, especially when compared to Moto G 2nd Gen' 149 grams.


Motorola Moto G 3rd Gen smartphones come with a 5 inches HD display having a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. The colour production is accurate and viewing angles are quite wide. The images as well as texts are decent and distinct enough but somewhat lack the sharpness that one gets on a full HD display. These new mobile phones come with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection on display, which guards against any kind of scratches, making the display stronger.


This dual camera smartphone comes with a 13MP primary rear camera and a 5MP secondary front faced camera. The rear camera comes with important features such as dual-LED flash, auto-focus, and an f2.0 aperture. As the sensors have been upgraded in this new Motorola Moto G version, you will get great picture output - both with the rear as well as front cameras.


Moto G 3rd Gen has received an upgradation to its processor in the form of a 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor clocking at 1.4GHz. And to provide a backup to this high-yielding powerful processor, Motorola has given adequate RAM support, especially in the 16GB model version. Also, users will get a better graphical output, for this device has been packed with an Adreno 306 GPU. These factors have improved the performance output of Moto G 3rd Gen in all fronts - be it the launch of apps, playing a wide array of games, or navigation through menus. Moreover, hardly any lag/freeze was found while navigating or playing games such as Asphalt 8, Leo's Fortune, Temple Run 2, and many others.

Operating system and UI

Motorola's Moto G 3rd Gen runs on the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system, wherein users will be able to enjoy a smoother user interface and a much easier navigation control. Its interface navigation is similar to the ones found in the much high-end versions of Google’s Nexus smartphones. You will also find a launcher that is quite similar to Google Now launcher. Some of the Motorola’s own system apps in this third generation of Moto G are Camera apps, Messaging, and Gallery.


Motorola Moto G 3rd Gen comes with dual SIM, where one of them is 4G complaint. The major connectivity options available to users in this smartphone are 802.11ac Wi-Fi, GPS, and Bluetooth. However, NFC feature is not available, which comes as a major let down for many. But one can listen to music by using Bluetooth headsets.


Users will be enthralled to get improved sensors in the Motorola Moto G 3rd Gen smartphones, especially in the camera segment. These sensors will provide you with a better camera experience. The primary and secondary cameras come with 13MP and 5MP sensors respectively. The sensors are now upgraded to the ones you get in the high-end Nexus 6 device.


Motorola has unveiled two Moto G 3rd Gen smartphones, based on internal memory storage. One of the new phones comes with 8GB of internal memory and a RAM of 1GB, while the other comes with 16GB of internal memory storage and a RAM of 2GB. Moreover, under the rear panel, users will get up to 32GB of microSD card slot support to expand the storage capacity of the device.


The battery can be found as a sealed non-detachable one when you remove the back cover of this new device. Motorola has packed the new Moto G 3rd Gen with a 2470mAh battery that helps it to last (with every recharge) for over 15 hours. You can play video for 7 to 8 hours continuously with a single charge. And when put on the highest display brightness with continuous 3G data usage, the phone lasted for an entire day after recharge.

Other Features

  • A handy app called 'Help', which is a Motorola specific system app provides users with a shortcut key to get in touch with the customer care of Motorola. You can also use it for searching the user guide that features actionable tips, How-Tos, FAQs, and Tutorials.
  • Double karate chop gesture (for turning on torch)
  • Twisting phone (for capturing image in camera mode)
  • Moto Ambient display (found in the highest version of Moto category – Moto X)
  • Setting to manage the behaviour of two SIM cards
  • Loud sound output can be obtained because of the incorporation of a front facing stereo speaker, where the bottom grille works as a speaker
  • Comes with a FM radio
