Motorola’s G series has set a new standard for affordable phones, and is always one of the most popular phones with our members given the premium design for the price. Motorola did a super nice job with the G6 - both the design and display have dramatically improved over last year’s model,” Matt Newton, senior vice president of hardware of Republic Wireless. “In this day and age of $800+ high-end smartphones, the Moto G series is a refreshing take on the smartphone experience.
