Moto G Memory

The only disappointing feature I've found about the Moto G is that it doesn't support expanded memory i.e there is no slot for an external memory card. Now, not many of you may find that disappointing, but I prefer the use of a memory card.

The Moto G comes in to variants i.e a 8 GB version and a 16 GB version. Both the variants come with 1 GB of RAM though, that's more than enough for playing all the top and latest games out there on the Play Store without worrying about any lag.

Moto G Processor and Chipset

The Moto G comes with an amazing Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset and a Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 processor which for it's price range makes the Moto G a must buy!

All the other smartphones at this price usually offer cheap and low quality chipsets and processors, but the Moto G comes with an amazing and powerful quad core 1.2 GHz processor which makes lagging a thing of the past.

It also has Adreno 305 GPU i.e the graphics card, which makes gaming an amazing experience.
