Bringing all rumors about Verizon’s offering of the Moto G to an end, Best Buy is now offering the device for $99.99. Best Buy spokesman Jonathan Sandler confirmed to LA Times that Moto G ”is currently landing in stores and is available for sale as soon as it arrives.” This means that you will have to keep in touch with Best Buy stores to place your hands on the device as early as possible.
As of now, the Moto G is the best budget device one could afford for. Considering the specifications of the device which include a 4.5-inch capacitive touch screen with a resolution of 720 x 1280, powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor, an Adreno 305 GPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB/16GB of internal storage, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing shooter and a 2,070 mAh Li-Ion removable battery, the device should perform well on the market with Galaxies, Xperias and Optimuses.
Note that the android version that this device ships with is “Vanilla” Android 4.3, however an Android 4.4 update for Moto G is already live which brings new camera controls, such as manual focus and exposure which can also be obtained by updating your Motorola Camera app from the Play Store. With 1 GB of RAM, the device surely performs well with Android 4.3 but the performance improvements that the device would get with Android 4.4 (which can run smooth on a 512 MB RAM device) is an added advantage.
If you’d like to place your hands on Moto G for $99.99 instead of the regular $179 price tag, make sure you stay in touch with Best Buy folks.
