This year, the G aims to be very competitive thanks to a combination of parts like the Snapdragon 410, 16GB storage, 2GB RAM, and a 2470mAh battery sitting underneath a 5 inch HD screen, as well as a 13 megapixel rear camera and 5 megapixel front-facing camera.

Where things get particularly interesting is at the inclusion of a dualSIM — great for people travelling — as well as the IPX7 water resistance, meaning you’ll be able to take this one into water and take photos, using the volume key to fire photos when you’re under water. Also useful is that the microUSB port on this one has been sealed against water, so you won’t have to worry about it when taking it in the drink.

Like the other two Motorola handsets, we did get a good feel fore this one, and while plastic is the main material used here, the Motorola G 2015 feels better than you’d think, with a textured replaceable back, decent heft, and a slight curvature that doesn’t cause it to move that much when resting on a table.

Pricing on the Moto G for 2015 comes in at an outright $369 with availability in September also, which says to us that it will appeal to anyone looking for a good little mid-ranger with resistance to the elements. You can read that as “great for someone who might be a bit clumsy, such as a child or teen”.

We’ll tell you what we think of this later on, as it has entered our review system, so look for our thoughts on the Moto G soon. Until then, September is what you’ll be waiting for.
