What makes the Motorola Moto G 3rd Generation unique is its water proof ability. Although not good enough for an underwater swim, the 3 meter 30 minutes water proof feature is more than sufficient to protect the phone from damage due to accidental seepage of water. The non-removable 2470 mAh lithium battery is sealed off to make the device water proof.

The battery ran for a long 10 hours and 46 minutes even with all video playbacks, gaming and browsing activities. Let’s say the battery is not something great, but it is not mediocre but above average, just what you can expect out of a mid-range smartphone.

Software specs

Sticking to the stock version also will provide quicker access to android updates that Google rolls out from time to time. If you want your smartphone to run on the latest software, Motorola Moto G 3rd Generation gives you just that.

Motorola Moto G 3rd Generation will be enabled with Moto Display, a feature which displays notifications on the lock screen without having to waking up the phone. The phone will be available in two memory variants: 2GM RAM/16GB ROM and 1GB RAM/8GB ROM.

We wonder why Motorola even released the 1GB version given the fact that all Android apps are getting heavier with every passing day. Our testing of the 2GB variant gave impressive results of glitch free performance with smooth gaming and high speed data connectivity.
