There we go, better than Amazon, better than Kikatek. The Moto G 2014 from a UK based retailer with free delivery.

The Motorola New Moto G otherwise known at the Moto G2 or the Moto G 2014 and it follows its predecessor with some unique updates. The New Moto G boasts an almost flag-ship looking design with its smooth back and descent screen to body ratio. The dimensions of the New G are 5.57 x 2.78 x 0.43 inches and the Motorola weighs in at 149g, thus sitting comfortably in the pocket. It has a 5 inch LCD display with a pixel density of 720 x 1280 pixels and 294ppi. This multi-touch display screen is protected by a unique coating of Corning Gorilla Glass 3. Running fast thanks to its Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7 processor, the New Moto G runs on the Android OS, v4.4.4 (KitKat) and will be upgradable to Android L. With this high speed processor and Qualcomm MSM8226 Snapdragon 400 chipset, this latest version of the Android Operating System runs smooth with no lag or risk of slow performance. On the rear of the New Motorola G you’ll find an 8MP camera with such features as Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR and panoramic photography. There is also a nice surprise with a 2MP camera routed to the front of the devise, perfect for Selfies and video calling. *Please note, although image presents White Moto G, this Smartphone is only currently available in Black.

If that is the case then neither of those retailers are selling UK spec devices, which makes this deal even better.

Why?

Well you don't know what issues you might run into with a mobile that was not designed to run on UK networks, there might be issues with warranties later down the line also. The Dual SIM versions were probably designed with the Asian market in mind.

Hot - Moto G !!!

Forgive my ignorance but whats the point of a dual sim? Obviously you can put 2 sim cards in but why?

You could have one sim which gave you a better deal on data and a separate one for your calls and texts. You could have your work SIM in and your personal SIM to avoid carrying two devices. Often there are limitations with regards to using both SIMs at once though and I have never used a dual SIM device myself.

They are designed to work on the UK's 3G network. There are no issues with warranties and in countries like Spain, most phones from the likes of Samsung, Motorola tend to be dual sim as that what the market there wants. UK carriers don't want dual sim phones on the markets here for obvious reasons.


I use a dual sim phone as I put my work sim in it along woith my personal one so I don't have to carry two phones and when I'm abroad I pop a local data sim in so I get cheap data from a local supplier.

They are not UK stock. I would personally not want to buy a phone that was not UK stock, if you are happy to take that risk because you need a dual SIM that makes sense but that does not mean this deal is worse than the others which is what you have implied.

Just looks so sad now the iPhone 6 is out.

Didn't imply anything... you did when you said 'Better than Amazon... better than Kikatek' when they are selling a different model. Does not say on Amazon or Kikatek that the 'stock' they are selling is not in the UK.

Why mention it if the implication was not that those deals are better?

I'd be keen if it could take an SD card. Without that, it's severely handicapped.

I think you meant "the iPhone 6 looks so sad when this is already out".

So you are saying this device is comparable to the iPhone 5s? I would say this device is slightly better but you are not a million miles away.

How are you so sure it's not UK stock? Amazon would sort out the warranty i would imagine. Dual SIM seems more versatile imho.

more computers is listed as an authorised motorola seller, and along with kikatek and amazon, the dual sim phones they sell will be uk warrantied stock.
so, morecomputers trumpfs this price
