Customize your Moto G with Moto Maker

Take one of the best mid-range Android phones ever in the Moto G, add in one of the most-loved options from Motorola with Moto Maker for the Moto X, and combine the two together to make a lot of people happy.

Some designers of popular products may scoff, but the ability to easily customize the looks of your new phone has proven to be a popular idea. We, as well as most people who have used it, consider Moto Maker a success. Bringing it to the Moto G — Motorola's mid-ranger, but their best selling line of smartphones ever — is a pretty big deal.

It's up to you how you want your new phone to look. And that's the way we like it.

There are a couple of caveats, of course. You don't have the "natural" options like wood or leather, and the color palette is a little smaller than we've seen for the Moto X line. Having said that, there are a handful of choices and you can create a phone that's subdued and simple, or screaming with color. It's up to you how you want your new phone to look. And that's the way we like it.

I created my Lime colored beauty recently, and wanted to walk you through the process. Of course, you can always play with it yourself, too at Motorola's website.

All in all, it's quick and easy to "design" your own Moto G. If you went through the process and created one of your own, be sure to share the design in the forums!
