How much is a Moto G in the UK? Can't be much more than this, but the G is definitely 10x better

Wait, holy shit, 3000 mAh battery. Still not enough to justify the price difference between the Moto G and this

Who is this phone aimed at?

People who aren't knowledgeable about smart devices.

The moto g 4g cost £139 on Amazon. I'll have the moto g over this phone any day!

Yeah, no question. Max I'd pay for this is £100

Comparison set up here for the two phones.

Bigger but thinner, screen is pretty low compared to the moto g, even if it is 5 vs 4.5.

However, that battery. Crikes. If...big IF.....the performance is there, I might recommend this over a moto g to someone for their first smartphone, if they were coming from a feature phone or less.

Battery life is a big thing to get used to for someone coming from a feature phone, I'd imagine this would run on and on.

Interesting idea from vodafone

I'd take the Moto G over this any day. Only thing this has going for it is the battery, and for less than the difference in price I can get a hefty external battery for emergency charging.

This is a nice looking phone. There will be more support for the G, but i really like the looks of it.

I have owned every phone from iPhone, galaxy s1, s2, s3, s4, note 2, note 3, nokia lumia 800, nokia lumia 1520, nexus 4, iPhone 4, nokia E71 and E72, Sony z1, lg g2 and G3 briefly and Moto G. One could argue i have had a taste of all phones. I now own a Vodafone Turbo and soon 2b a Vodafone Power. The Vodafone Turbo is rather good 2b honest; it does everything a note 3 can do apart from pen, larger screen and better camera. those things don't bother me anymore. A camera phone will never replace a camera. Camera phones r ok for snap shots. turbo and power have NFC/4G. sure screen resolution is around 200ppi but still good enough. battery on Power will be amazing...
