Moto G2 to feature mostly the same innards, but will include an upgraded camera
The Motorola Moto G was introduced late last year as a low-cost (off-contract) smartphone. Offering up a 4.5” 720p display, a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, and 16GB of internal storage, the phone offered quite a bit of value for its $179 price tag. Motorola
upped the ante in May by introducing an LTE version of the Moto G for $219
Is this the new Moto G2?
Now, according to a new leak, the successor to the Moto G will be soon upon us. The so-called Moto G2 will reportedly retain its Snapdragon 400 processor and 720p screen resolution. However, the phone gains dual-SIM capabilities and an 8MP rear shooter (up from 5MP). It’s also possible that LTE functionality might be included at the $179 price point instead of the current $40 upsell.
In other Motorola news, the Moto X is currently be offering with up to $75 in instant discounts via the by using the code “MBXISMOT” on the Moto Maker website. The discount takes $50 off the price of 16GB model and $75 off 32GB and 64GB models. That means that the 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB Moto X will now run you $299.99, $324.99, and $374.99 respectively.
The Moto X promotion expires on July 23.

I think that's why the
loves iPhones, because carriers know it's a phone that most likely won't survive the length of your contract, and vendors know they'll have the opportunity to fix it.
It's just ridiculous how fragile they are. I'm still using a 4S and haven't broken it, but I remember when I got a iPhone 4 and heard it
as I sat down just a week into owning it. The screen cracked right in my pocket.
When I compare this to the abuse I put a Galaxy SIII through (multiple drops, especially while taking photo's) it makes the Galaxy look like a tank. But it was overall a pretty crappy phone lol.

It's ironic that so many of the things that are universally perceived as high build quality increase the chance of damage in a fall. Light weight. Stiff frame. Monolithic construction. They all serve to transfer the force around the phone very efficiently.
The cheap, flexible plastic that the Galaxy phones have, on the other hand, flexes just a fraction of a millimeter. Enough to feel cheaper in the hand but also enough to cushion a blow just enough to keep the gorilla glass from shattering.
