Smoothly straddling the line between value and performance, the Motorola moto g family of phones is the smart choice for a budget-conscious buyer who doesn’t want to compromise on premium features and design.

Which moto g is right for me?

All three devices come with Android 13 and Motorola’s unique My UX software, allowing users to create their own individual experience. Then, through the simplicity of Gestures, such as a twist of your wrist to open the camera, chopping down twice to turn on the flashlight, or taking a screenshot with a touch, users have the opportunity to access their favourite features in a way that’s natural and intuitive.
In addition, all three phones boast extra software features from Motorola, such as Moto Family Spaces and Moto Secure. To enhance security and provide peace of mind, they are equipped with ThinkShield for mobile. After 10 years of moto g series phones, these devices have never been better.
