Motorola Moto G Unlock Code & Instructions
After a year, the Moto G of 2013, was replaced by another phone of the same name. You are reading it correctly, and we are saying it right. The Moto G has two versions, the first one having been introduced in 2013, and the other one in 2014. They both named the phone Moto G, as it suggests, we are all expecting a better version of the initial offering. But is it really a better version?
The 2014 Moto G has a 5-inch screen versus the older version’s 4.5-inch. In our books, bigger is always better since one maybe able to look at a wider perspective rather than cram your vision in a smaller screen. But that should be with consideration. Holding the phone, it doesn’t exactly rest on the hand quite well like the old one.
The latest version’s design is very similar to the older model. However, Motorola has included bits and pieces of improvements coming from the original Moto E design.
Amongst the more noticeable additions are the metal bars above and below the screen. These are not just for aesthetics but its actual purpose is to mark where the stereo speakers are. The older Moto G had one speaker at the back. The back is curved and made of matte-finished plastic. The contours of the phone are smooth. There is really nothing to rave about when it comes to the aesthetics of this phone. If anything, there is no real improvement from the old to the new. The look seems to fall flat which is really a disappointment considering Motorola was amongst the first cellphone companies to come up with great design back in the day (remember the Razr?).
If you look at the new Moto G closely is thinner than the old model but wider. The screen maybe larger but holding it becomes a bit of a problem. Since it is thinner, it can feel clumsier, especially with a bigger screen. It is just not the right size.
Despite having a flat appearance, the Moto G feels well made. Though largely covered in plastic, the whole screen is covered with Gorilla Glass 3. Buttons for volume and power up, speaker bars are on the side, and slot for the head jack, are made of more solid materials.
The battery is sealed in so it should protect the battery from getting damaged if it gets wet. However, this phone is not waterproof, so do not even attempt to submerge it under water. It has a microSD memory card slot and 8GB of internal storage (half of which are already occupied by the apps and systems included in the phone). 4GB of space is good for non-heavy users but will pose a problem for those who download movies or make videos with their phones.
The screen’s 5-inch display has a resolution of 720p, the same resolution as that of its predecessor with a smaller screen. The old Moto G has 326ppi, while the newer version has 294ppi. And the sad part is, the difference is noticeable. If you look at the both screens, the newer version is softer. And if you look at it even more closely, one can see the pixels more clearly. This is where you will know that what you got is in fact a budget phone, something that we didn’t really feel when we had the first Moto G.
As for watching movies, videos and playing games, the additional size makes a difference. In this case, our motto of “the bigger, the better” clearly applies. Graphics are quite sharp but not entirely clear. The Moto G has an IPS-type display, which offers a better angle for viewing than the traditional LCD screens. But due to its bigger screen (with the same pixel ratio than the small-screened phone), the colors on the screen is a little less vivid, whites tend to be on the bluer side. And if you are bringing it outdoors, the screen is reasonable, considering that this is a mid-range price phone.
If there is one thing worth noting about in terms of changes in the new Moto G version, it would be the camera. From a 5-megapixel shooter, it now has an 8-megapixel camera with a bigger lens 9from an f/2.0 to an f/2.4).
The newer camera is faster to use compared to the old one. The bigger eye gives you a better chance of capturing moving objects. Needless to say, because of this improvement to the new version’s camera, the new Moto G produces better photos in all aspects – sharper and clearer turnout as compared to the old Moto G.
