Moto G

Anybody considering the Moto G? Any cogent points for or against?

Do you know if the "US optimized" phone will work passably overseas with the appropriate SIM card and vice-versa?

Longshot of the year - the website has a box for "Promo Code". Anybody have one?

There's been some excitement about the Moto G at Howard Forums because a Verizon model should be able to work with Page Plus without flashing due to the 3G.

Here's an excellent review:

[www.theverge.com]

My interpretation:
1) It's an excellent, low-cost 4G phone. Should be an ideal International phone. Don't know about the 'US Optimized' feature.
2) I would get the $199 model with the most on-board storage if using as an actual phone.
3) Does not have LTE, making it less interesting to US customers.
4) The camera is probably the biggest compromise besides LTE when compared to a top-of-the-line phone.
5) If I was getting an Android phone for the US, I would shop around and look for the firesaled Galaxy S3.

We will be getting one as a test unit for our Android app. Even the 'expensive' model is a great Android tablet, even without phone activation.

I agreed with your summary except for this point. 14Mbps down/3 up is hardly unappealing, especially since most people only have 2GB or lower data caps anyway. If you are a company that only has one phone, sure LTE is a nice option, but I think a $179/$199 phone without LTE is perfectly acceptable.
