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.

Summary: After playing around with the Moto G (3rd Gen) for a couple of hours I was convinced: this is one of the best sub-$200 phones out right now. The combination of a great build quality, stable operating system and decent camera make it a winner for those who don’t need a high-end device.
Build Quality & Appearance:
When I first picked up the Moto G (3rd Generation) my mind was blown. The build quality of this device is excellent for its price range. The plastic it is made of has a nice texture and is firm: there is absolutely no flex or ‘cheap’ feeling to it. It’s great that the phone has waterproof capabilities too. I wouldn’t personally take it swimming, but it’s just a little bit extra peace of mind. I’m a big fan of the feel of the textured back. It adds a nice edge to an otherwise plain smartphone. The front looks like a standard smartphone and while a bit boring I couldn’t find anything to fault with it.
The screen is one of the more disappointing parts of this device. It is 720p, and even with a smaller screen size it is possible to see individual pixels. There is a “screen-door” effect, meaning that the black lines between pixels are slightly visible. That being said, the screen has quite nice color and tonal range and it looks good from most angles.Read more ›
I settled on the Moto G 2015 16GB, 2GB RAM version directly from Motorola. Motorola lets you custom design your phone with multiple color choices, storage, engraving, etc. I went with a white face, blue back and champagne metal accent. Easier to find I figure than my old black rectangles. Designing is simple and easy and the changes update real time with a 360 rotation.
Ordering the Moto G was a snap, and in less than a week I had my Moto G in hand.
SHINY EXTERIOR (or not really):
The Moto G 2015 sports a 5” gorilla glass screen at a 1280 x 720 resolution for a 294 PPI. This is quite low compared to other phones out there, but the Moto G is also 33% or 50% of their price. Furthermore, higher resolutions require more powerful chips to run and suck up more power. Part of the reason I went with the Moto G over waiting for the Nexus 5X is because the Nexus 5X is rumored to have an even higher PPI than the Nexus 5 resulting in likely worse battery life. I can tell the difference between the Moto G and the Nexus 5 screens if I look real hard, but it doesn’t bother me. Screen to body ratio, or how much of the face is screen vs non-screen is 67%. Edge to edge screen this phone is not.Read more ›
Packaging is clean - the device comes in slim packaging compared with previous Nexus 6/Moto E packaging, however is nicely protected. When unboxing and flipping the phone over the first thing I noticed is the instructions on the back panel of the phone on how to properly remove the cover/reseal it in order to get the best water resistance. I also ordered a blue cover from Motorola directly which should arrive next week. While the back cover is removable the battery is not user replaceable - this may be a factor for some but I carry an external battery when travelling for work.
The device itself does not by any means feel like a budget smart phone. It's leaps and bounds better in terms of overall build quality compared to some recently released devices such as the Huawei P8 Lite or Alcatel Idol 3. It is also much more refined than last years G and this years Moto E. The US Model ships with a MicroSD card slot and a single sim card slot (XT1540). I really like the textured rear cover although the device may end up going into a case - I had never dropped cell phones in using them for 10 or so years until recently when I managed to drop them 2 or 3 times over the course of the past month.
The display seems decent enough for a 720p offering, never for a moment did I look at it and feel it was a huge downgrade over something like the Idol 3 or iPhone 6 (PPI will be somewhat lower however it still offers a nice display and most likely a power savings driving a lower res display).Read more ›

For a 200 bucks phone that is not a phablet this was the best you could get. It's OK but it dated too fast.
It is my own fault, but there are things that need to be corrected on the listing for the phone. an updated list with the proper amount of ram each version comes with. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Cody Allen Gibbs
