I wanted to provide a quick review for the Moto G 2nd Gen. Specific model is the US GSM Black 8gb. I purchased this for my wife here on Amazon. We use AT&T and I wanted to replace my wife's aging iPhone4 off contract. This is the best phone for the price I found. I charged the phone, inserted her AT&T sim card from her iphone4, inserted the 16gb micro sd card (can use up to 32gb), and everything worked flawlessly.

Pros: lovely 5" screen, quick and responsive touch, perfect size screen, Gorilla Glass! micro-usb charging (common), stock Android Kit Kat, upgradeable to Android L when released, MicroSD card slot, front stereo speakers, great call quality, great reception, price, unlocked (great for travel), no contract! Blutooth and Wifi work fine. No issues connecting to our home network and my wifes work wifi.

Cons: No 4GLTE, Non Removable battery, No included headset/ear buds, LIMITED accessories so far(cases)

Build Quality: Nothing to complain about. Perfect weight, feels solid, very tight, does NOT feel flimsy. The back phone cover is easily swappable. The black color is a deep matte black. Not slippery hard plastic, but a more rubberized feel.

Battery life is very good. Not stellar, but easily lasts a complete day for my wife who is a average smartphone user. I just wish the battery was replaceable to increase longevity of the phone.

This phone is perfect for the non-power user, average user, someone new to android, or is replacing their phone off contract. The specs are slightly above average for a phone in this price category! It is an amazing phone for under $200 off contract.

Edit 9/18/14: fixed error about SIM cards and wifi specs
Also, here is a useful link to information about SD card usage in android: https://forums.motorola.com/posts/7e59cc7baf

Edit 9/21/14: Yesterday I used my phone indoors with standard usage. The screen brightness was manually set between around 20-40% the entire day. When I plugged in the phone when going to bed, I had 14h and 45 min of battery time, and 5 hours of screen on time. I still had 20% battery left. The battery is as awesome as before!

(Note: Because this global version is the same as the US version, and only differs by having different 3G bands, I've copied my review from the US version.)
The Moto G was a huge hit for Motorola in 2013, as it provided many people with a fast, new smartphone at an extremely affordable price. Now in 2014, Motorola has updated the Moto G with its second iteration. There are many similarities with the first generation, and a few important changes/improvements.

-Same screen resolution, 1280x720
-Same CPU, Snapdragon 400 (1.2ghz quad core)
-Same, 3G only connectivity (no LTE in this model)
-Same 2070mah battery

-Screen size changed from 4.5" to 5"
-Front camera upgraded from 1.

Wonderful phone. Switched from a Nexus 4 to this because I was fed up with poor battery life. The screen is absolutely gorgeous. Its vivid and bright and puts my nexus 4 screen to shame. The phone has a premium feel with a nice weight and soft touch back. Certainly doesn't feel like a sub $200 phone and in my opinion feels better than some plasticy flagship phones. Battery life so far has been excellent easily lasting a full day with average usage and screen set to 75% brightness. The performance is snappy with no noticeable lag whatsoever. Front speakers are nice upgrade- youtube videos and calls on speaker sound crisp and clear. I threw in an micro SD and transferred pictures, videos, and music to it quickly in the storage settings. I am not sure how installing apps to the SD card will work but I am not sure I will need to do that if I keep all my media on the SD card.

The only hesitation I had about buying this phone was lack of LTE. HSPA+ speeds on Tmobile have been around 5 Mbs down which is more than adequate for browsing mobile sites, youtube videos, streaming music, and navigation. I am able to do all of these things without noticeable delay so I personally don't mind the lack of LTE. I contemplated this model vs the 2013 Moto G with LTE and decided to go with this for the larger display and better camera.

In all, if you are on a cell phone plan that does not offer phone subsidy or use a prepaid service, this really is an incredible value. It does not feel like a cheap phone. Sure there are some deficiencies like lack of LTE and 1 GB of ram, but if those things aren't crucial to you, then there is little to differentiate this $180 phone from phones that are priced over $600 in terms of user experience.
