Our favourite budget handset, the Moto G, gets a 4G update

When we reviewed the Moto G at the back end of last year, there wasn’t many ways we could have thought to improve it. For its low price tag, it was simply the best handset available.

It would seem that Motorola agreed, and so with today’s big reveal of an updated Moto G they have decidedly played it safe. As you may have guessed from the title of the article, this new edition will be called the Moto G 4G and it will have 4G capability.

The other noticeable improvement is that it will run Android 4.4 KitKat right out of the box. Aesthetically Motorola has played it safe – it’s still the same handset, complete with a variety interchangeable plastic back cases, but now you can get the front in white or black.

It’s priced at a frankly ludicrous £149, which is an absolute steal for the specs you get, whilst the original 3G-only Moto G has received a price cut to £119.

Here’s a couple of snaps we took of the new handset when we got up close and personal with it at the official launch.
