Moto G (2015) review

The third generation Moto G is bigger, but is it better?

Moto G review
The third Moto G is the most impressive one yet

Moto G review

The manual exposure dial makes getting ultra-high contrast photos like this a cinch

Moto G review

The greenish hint to the sky is one of the few colour balance missteps the Moto G made

Moto G review

While the Moto G can get good detail at night with a still hand, this shot required a few attempts

Moto G review

I manually took the exposure down on this shot for a moodier look

Moto G review

This is a good example of the high-contrast images you can get from the Moto G

Moto G review

The HDR mode can overdo things - this picture is bright and punchy, but doesn't look natural

Moto G review

Check out the green on this- it's highly saturated without looking remotely unnatural

Moto G review

The HDR is dead effective, but has caused some contrast issues on the left side of the frame

Moto G review

Here's another shot making use of the exposure dial

Moto G review

Lovely colour, bokeh-y background and plenty of foreground detail

Moto G review

The HTC Desire 626 and Sony Aqua M4 fluffed this same scene, overexposing the foreground

Moto G review

The 'Auto HDR 'mode in action, giving a dynamic range boost without the full-on HDR effect

Moto G review

This is a great example of how well the Moto G can cope with strong light sources

Moto G review

The Moto G produces lovely bokeh for such an affordable phone

Moto G review

The HTC Desire 626 produced loads of light bleed in comparison

Moto G review

Auto HDR in action: extreme punchiness without quite tripping over into an unreal look

Moto G review

HDR adds some visual drama to this scene, but I wouldn't mind it being 5% subtler
