Moto G: where can I get it?

Not quite as low cost

The new Moto G has been announced and it's already on sale with Motorola acting quickly to get its best selling smartphone of all time into the hands of consumers.

Sporting a 5-inch HD display, dual front facing speakers, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front snapper and IPX7 waterproofing the Moto G packs a lot in.

For the first time in the G range, the new Moto G can be customised through the Moto Maker website, although you can grab the handset direct from networks and retailers too.

Motorola

You can get the new Moto G direct from Motorola itself, with prices starting at £179 through the Moto Maker customisation website.

From here you can choose the colour for the front, back and accents, as well as opt for a flip shell (for an extra £24.99) and engraving.

If you fancy bumping the internal storage from 8GB to 16GB your starting price is £209.

O2

O2 has stock of the black Moto G, with a £9.99 upfront payment getting you an 8GB Moto G with 100 minutes, unlimited texts and 100MB data for £14.99 per month.

Three

You can also pick up the new Moto G on Three, and the network is working closely with Motorola allowing you to customise the handset via Moto Maker.

You'll need to get a unique pin from Three first, and then follow the link on the website to take you to the customizer.

A two year deal with £19 up front will get you unlimited texts and data, plus 600 minutes for £34 per month, and if you shell out an extra £3 per month you'll get unlimited minutes.

If you don't fancy being tied down to a contract then you can also get the Moto G on PAYG for £159 plus £10 top up.

Vodafone

Motorola has confirmed the new Moto G will be available from Vodafone, but the network is yet to release details of its offering.
