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.

RE: Enjoying my Moto G

I also have a Moto G, and have never experienced the touch sensitivity issue either.

I purchased the phone as a spur of the moment thing when the screen on my main phone at the time broke. To be perfectly honest I've been very impressed with the device so far and will be my main phone for the forseeable.

As much as it pains me to say this, as I do prefer Windows Phone over Android, the Moto G offers better value than its Nokia counterparts at the same price point in terms of specs and features. The lack of a camera flash on the low-end Nokia devices really annoys me.

Yes, the mere fact that I bought one (two actually) means it offered the most value. To me at least.
When I find something that this little thing won't run, but a G3 will, I may change my mind. Until then, I'm good.
