What is an unlocked phone?
An unlocked phone is a device that is not bound to any carrier or plan. It allows you to choose your phone first and your carrier second. Upon selecting a plan, simply insert the carrier's SIM card into the phone and you're ready to go. If you decide you want to change carriers down the road or want to take an international trip, it's as simple as replacing your existing SIM card with a new SIM and activating your new plan.
What are the benefits of an unlocked phone?
Freedom: Choose the carrier with the best service or price. If you find a better deal later, you have the ability to change to a different carrier.
Travel: Take your phone internationally and use the carrier of your choice. It's as easy as inserting an active SIM card.
Selection: Choose the phone with the features you want, whether or not your carrier sells it, and get more service options without a contract.
How do I set up my unlocked phone?
The first thing you’ll need is a SIM card for your desired carrier. When activated, the SIM card will let your phone connect to your carrier’s network. If you decide to upgrade to a newer unlocked phone in the future, you can easily remove the SIM card from your old phone and put it in your new phone—just make sure you get the right size of SIM card (nano, micro, or standard) for your phone. If you want to use your phone while traveling internationally, you can easily buy a SIM card for a carrier that operates where you’re traveling. As long as it’s activated, you can just swap SIM cards when you arrive at your destination.

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.Read more ›

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.Read more ›
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.
