The Moto G 2015 (3rd generation) is now official. We tell their characteristics and small novelties offered on the previous generation. Will it still be the big selling? For several years since the Moto G is the mobile classic recommended for which you need something modern, fast, with the latest Android and cheaply. I surprised everyone in 2013 (1st generation) remained in line in 2014 (New Moto G) and now adds a little updating to keep its place in a market with growing competition from China and domestic manufacturers as Bq.

Moto G 2015: His new

The Moto G 2015 (3rd Generation) remains similar to the previous version , and to be honest has less change than people expected. There are two improvements that are the strongest, the camera and water resistance together with an update hardware.

As to water resistance , protection has IPX7. This certification means that can be submerged, and as confirmed in the presentation, can be 30 minutes underwater without problem. We have seen how they put down a bowl and nothing happened. Beyond that you have no intention to wash it, can save you a headache, and it’s hard moving to find his submersible price.

The camera look good, and that the sensor is to the 13 megapixel and could be the same as the Nexus 6. It is accompanied by dual flash and a front camera of 5 MP. As a detail, you can activate the flash giving a slight shake the mobile. There will be time to test, but it is a high-end camera in a cheap mid-range.

The other of which Motorola boasts is a novelty that does not affect us much and customization that can be given with “Moto Maker”, which is not in Spain. also it has interchangeable covers in various colors and textures.

Inside: Few changes

Now if we go to the guts of the phone, there are not many changes. HD retains the 5-inch screen before, and improves a processor Snapdragon 410 4-core 1.4 Ghz. He is accompanied by a RAM memory which can be 1 or 2 GB depending on the version you choose and storage of 8 or 16 GB version as well. Of note is the battery 2470 mAh passing . Of course, accompanying the latest version of Android 5.1.1

I think here many expected more , and that has the same processor Moto E (2nd generation). The competition is becoming tyrannical and is no longer the quality / unbeatable price of two years ago. You do not get confused, still a very good price mobile, but is no longer the undisputed king. So … Who do you deal?

The competition is getting stronger

Taking a price (not confirmed for Spain) of around € 180 in its basic version (1GB RAM / 8GB), faces some stiff competition euros. For example, the Aquaris Bq E5 , which is also 4G, with similar screen and processor, is achieved at a similar price. Xiaomi is also Mi4i, Full HD screen and 8-core processor little more than € 200. Other heavy opponent may be a bit more expensive, Xperia M4 Aqua , which is also resistant to dust and various preferred design. Either way, it is good that the market is nurtured options.
