Press Release

Meet the new Moto G Family: Whichever you choose, you get more of what matters most.

When it comes to smartphones, sometimes we feel let down. The things that matter most — like taking great photos at our kids' soccer games, video chatting with mom or having all-day battery life — simply don't live up to our expectations.

It shouldn't be this way. Smartphones should focus on technology that prioritizes the things people really care about.

That's how we designed the next generation of our best-selling smartphones, Moto G Plus and Moto G Play. Because we know people are unique and use their phones differently, each of them has meaningful technology, so you never have to miss what matters most to you.

Moto G Plus: Never miss a photo worth sharing. Moto G Plus has all the features of Moto G, along with some new features we know matter most. One of the biggest improvements is the camera. There's nothing worse than missing a moment. Now you won't. Moto G Plus' 16MP camera with two additional rapid focus technologies, laser focus and phase detect autofocus, work quickly so you always nab sharp, clear pictures, day and night. DxOMark, the trusted industry standard for camera and lens image quality ratings, has rated the Moto G Plus photo quality among the top smartphone cameras, ahead of iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, and other phones that are more than twice its price.^

Tired of forgetting your passwords? Now you can. With a fingerprint reader typically found in more expensive devices, a touch is all you need to instantly wake up your phone. You can even use it to authorize purchases on the Google Play StoreTM.

Moto G Play: Never miss out on worry-free fun. Moto G Play gives you more of what you love, like fast, reliable performance of a quadcore processor. It's designed to last a full day, thanks to its 2800 mAh battery. And it boosts performance by running a pure, clutter-free version of Android™. The best part? You only have to spend a little for a phone you'll love a lot.
