Today Motorola unveiled its Moto G smartphone, which is related to the Moto X in many ways, but very different in others. I had the chance to try out the Moto G in person at Motorola's Canadian HQ in Toronto, and in many ways, it's a very impressive device. In others, however, it still reveals its cost consciousness.
One of the first things I noticed was that the phone feels a little chubby. It's relatively thick compared to premium smartphones like the Moto X or the Nexus 5, but that's to be expected considering the screen it's packing and the price. Display tech costs a lot when you're trying to reduce thickness, less so when you're unconcerned on that score.
