Moto X, Moto G, and Moto 360 Hands on

Moto X, Moto G, and Moto 360 Hands on

Yesterday, I got to spend a few minutes with the new Motorola devices. The first of the lot was the new Moto X, which has been completely revamped and is bigger and better in every way than the previous Moto X. I’m not the biggest fan of the original model, but I did like this new one quite a lot. I hope they price it around ₹35,000, which should make it an excellent choice if you’re looking for a high-end Android device.

The new Moto G isn’t as different in comparison from its predecessor but is a good phone overall. The features and performance available for the price (₹12,990) are stellar. It’s better than the previous model in many ways and the fact that they priced it lower than the older phone is really commendable. If you’re looking at a low-end Android device, I’d suggest getting this without hesitation.

Lastly, there was the absolutely stunning Moto 360. I wasn’t quite sure about the design at first but holding it in my hands and putting it on, I was in love with the stunning metal finish on this silver model I tried and the nice leather straps. There will be a black colored model as well with a matching straps, and Motorola will bring metal straps a bit later. As with other Android Wear devices, battery life is a bit of a concern, but if I had to pick one smartwatch today, this would be it.

Apologies for the quality of the video. The venue was extremely dark and I’m surprised the camera managed to pull even this much detail out of that place.
