Moto G (2014) specs

+1 . I'll wait until the LTE version comes out. Based on the last one it will be about April 2015.

hmm the question is... how long till a US LTE version comes out? I was waiting for this announcement and i think i might still go w/ last years MotoG LTE. But I like the front speakers... Argh! it's a dilemma!

The question is 'How long for a Global LTE model'

My fear is as they only released the Moto G 4G in May 2013 the 2nd Generation may be held back for a few months still

The spec list doesn't say anything about a SD slot but I'm reading elsewhere that it has one?

5 inches? That's the bummer part of this. 4.7" or so is around where I want it, and usually this comes with the cheaper phones. Wasn't expecting this bump. It's getting too hard to find one at smaller sizes.

Thanks for your post.

Moto G (2014) edition should have cooler in specification. In it’s hardware
it should have minimum a upgrade processor than the old one (Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 400 processor with 1.2 GHz quad-core CPU ). Because in that CPU does not support to play *.mkv, *flv…so on video files.

All lower midrange to upper midrange Smartphone should have minimum 16GB phone storage at least.
About video recording why didn’t they gave us the 1080p recording??

Battery should become removable.

Specifically it should be named as MOTO G+ with those above improvement at least. Its 2014.

Thanks in Advance
