moto-g5:15 PM – A while back, we reported that Motorola has introduced a cost-sensitive smartphone called the Moto G.  The company announced the Moto X earlier this year, which is a high-priced smartphone off-contract, so to counter that, they released a low-cost alternative, the Moto G.

Motorola has announced that Moto G is now available for purchase in the United States and just in time for the holidays too. The low-cost smartphone is available at astonishing price of $179.  You get an unlocked, contract-free smartphone, directly from Motorola.

The low-cost smartphone brings several things to the table that the Moto X brings, such as the option to swap the back cover with a new one of a different color.  There are seven colors available: white, black, dark blue, light blue, yellow, red, and pink. If you want to make more changes to your Moto G, bumpers and flip covers are also available for change.

The Moto G does lack a few hardware features such as LTE connectivity and a smaller battery.  But for the cost, you get a very nice smartphone.

Will you be purchasing one?
