The hottest smartphone in the budget market category got just a whole lot more affordable.
Moto G must be credited for bringing the attention to the budget tier segment smartphones in India that it deserves. The device basically became the first worth recommending Android smartphone in the sub Rs 15,00 category when it was launched last year. Whether it is still the best smartphone under the Rs 15,000 category is another debate given the launch of devices like Xiaomi Mi3 and Asus Zenfones in the recent past. However, seeing the stiff competition, Motorola has decided to make the Motorola Moto G all the way, more attractive.
For a limited period, the device will be available for Rs 10,499 for the 8 GB model while the 16 GB variant of the device also received a price cut of about Rs 2,000 and is retailing for Rs 11,999. Both the smartphones are available directly via Flipkart only, the preferred retail choice of Motorola in India.It is not known or clear how many units of the device are available or what is the time period for scheme to stay live, so in case you have been holding off purchasing the Moto G, this is the perfect time to go ahead and grab the device.
It is interesting to note that while the device itself has seen a price cut, the official Motorola accessories have remained at the exact same price as they were before, so you will have to shell out about Rs 700 upwards for a new shell.
We assume that the sales of the Motorola blockbuster have been affected by the ongoing Xiaomi rage and this is a quick move by Motorola to grab the headlines and as many pockets as possible. At the Rs 10,000 mark, the Moto G is a fabulous choice, especially if you are looking for an Android phone with guaranteed immediate updates and a near stock Android experience.
