So while there still are plenty of bad phones out there, you needn&#39;t concern yourself with them any more.&nbsp;</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/sophie-charara" title="View user profile.">Sophie Charara</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Moto G 4G (£150) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The 2013&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/motorola/motorola-moto-g/review">Moto G</a>&nbsp;is now ludicrously cheap, frequently dipping below &pound;100 - but 4G makes this new model ever better.&nbsp;</p> <p>It&#39;s sturdily built and fits snugly into one hand, while its use of swappable Motorola Shells give you the option to customise its look on a daily basis. The 4.5in, HD, 326ppi screen is the real selling point over its fuzzier-screened rivals; it matches the much pricier <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/htc/htc-one-mini-2-hands/review">HTC One Mini 2</a>&nbsp;on this front. Next to most other phones in its class it looks pin-sharp, with vivid but natural colours and good contrast.</p> <p>It&rsquo;s not without problems - the 5MP camera does still disappoint sometimes, especially in low light, and you only get 8GB of built-in storage. But the addition of a microSD card slot means you can now add up to 32GB of space, and in day-to-day use nothing comes close.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="The Moto G 4G takes the top spot " alt="Best cheap smartphone 2014 test " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/moto-g-review_0.jpg?1410954150" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="4000" height="3000" title="Both Moto Gs - with and without 4G - are worth considering " alt="Best cheap smartphone 2014 test " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/moto-g_0.JPG?1410954150" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-title"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Motorola Moto G 4G tech specs </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-body-text"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Body Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Screen</strong>: 4.5in 1280x720 (326ppi) with Gorilla Glass&nbsp;<br /><strong>Power</strong>: 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400/1GB RAM<br /><strong>Camera</strong>: 5MP 720p rear, 1.3MP 720p front&nbsp;<br /><strong>Battery</strong>: 2070 mAh&nbsp;<br /><strong>Connectivity</strong>: 3G/4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0<br /><strong>Storage</strong>: 8GB (microSD up to 32GB)&nbsp;<br /><strong>Dimensions</strong>: 129.9 x 65.9 x 11.6mm/ 143g&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Moto&rsquo;s also left the 4G with an almost-untouched version of Android KitKat, adding a few genuinely useful features but nothing more.

Even with more pixels to push than most cheap phones, the Moto G still lasts a day between charges.&nbsp;</p> <p>If you have specific criteria - for instance you&rsquo;re a n00b who likes the look of Windows Phone or taking pics is your priority - then other budget phones down this list might make more sense.

It&rsquo;s just a shame that 4.8in screen isn&rsquo;t very sharp at 229ppi and suffers from poor viewing angles. Because otherwise you get a ton of Sony for your money here.</p> <p>Its blocky plastic design, available in purple, white and black, is based on the high-end <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/android/samsung-galaxy-s5-vs-htc-one-m8-vs-sony-xperia-z2/feature/1-sony-xperia-z2">Xperia Z2</a>. There&rsquo;s no waterproofing as you&#39;d find on that premium Xperia, but for &pound;150 PAYG, we&rsquo;re not complaining.</p> <p>Performance is much better than previous mid-range Sony phones we&rsquo;ve encountered thanks to a Snapdragon 400 processor which powers every handset on this test bar the Moto E and HTC Desire 301. Battery life is pretty good, too, matching the Moto G 4G. Plus Sony has thrown in extras you won&rsquo;t find on other budget blowers such as small apps, Stamina mode for the battery and a pulsing notification light to stretch to over a day of use.</p> <p>Its more than decent 8MP camera is the highlight, though. AF can be a little sluggish but it&rsquo;s easy to use, with Sony&rsquo;s quick Superior Auto mode plus lots of settings to dig into and reliably good 1080p video. It doesn&rsquo;t get close to the top smartphones for picture quality, but it&rsquo;s the best all-round snapper of all the cheap phones we&rsquo;ve tested.</p> <p>If Sony had stuck a higher res screen on the M2 and added support for 4G, this would be more of a rival for the Moto. As it is, it falls just short.</p> <p><strong>Stuff says</strong>:&nbsp;<strong>✭✭✭✭✩</strong><br />Fine features and the best choice for shutterbugs, only the screen lets the M2 down</p> <p><strong>UPDATE</strong>: Sony has just announced the M2 Aqua with identical specs to the M2 plus IP65/68 waterproofing and dustproofing, higher even than the Xperia Z2 and probably what we can expect from the Xperia Z3. There&#39;s no price yet but if it&#39;s &pound;150 and under, we&#39;ll add it to this budget phones group test.&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="The M2 gives you camera chops on a shoestring " alt="Best cheap smartphone 2014 test " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/sony-xperia-m2-review_0.jpg?1410954150" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Big screen, small money " alt="Best cheap smartphone 2014 test " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/sony-xperia-m2-2.png?1410954150" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-title"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Sony Xperia M2 tech specs </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-body-text"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Body Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Screen</strong>: 4.8in 540x960 (229 ppi)&nbsp;<br /><strong>Power</strong>: 1.2GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400/&nbsp;<br /><strong>Camera</strong>: 8MP 1080p rear, VGA front&nbsp;<br /><strong>Battery</strong>: 2330 mAh<br /><strong>Connectivity</strong>: 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC&nbsp;<br /><strong>Storage</strong>: 8GB (microSD up to 32GB)&nbsp;<br /><strong>Dimensions</strong>: 139.6 x 71.1 x 8.6mm/ 148g&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Nokia Lumia 630 (£90) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>In a sea of cheap Androids, the Lumia 630 stands out like an alien-goo-green buoy keeping Windows Phone fans safe from ridicule. Sure, Android has more games and the 630 is far from the highest specced device here, but this Nokia gets a lot right.</p> <p>The battery life is the best for the money - not by much, but the 630 will give you an extra hour or so over the rest. It&rsquo;s the lightest at 134g, comes with a decent, if low-res, screen and some excellent freebies including Nokia Drive.</p> <p>Windows Phone 8.1 is both friendlier than stock KitKat for beginners and now has useful Android-style features and settings, too. Even the 5MP camera has its moments - outdoor and macro shots look great and low-light images aren&#39;t the grainiest we&#39;ve ever encountered. It&rsquo;s a little slow in use next to the likes of the Moto G but it&#39;s easy to forgive that at this low, low price.

The 5in Moto G (2014) isn&#39;t a direct replacement for the 4G model or last year&#39;s handset (now priced at &pound;100). It&#39;s the Moto G for people who don&#39;t mind sacrificing a bit of battery life here, a splash of 4G there for a big screen and much better camera than the original 5MP snapper.</p> <p>So what&#39;s been improved? It performs just as fast as the first Moto G and Android is just as clutter-free. The main difference is the bigger build (it&#39;s the biggest here) - it&#39;s sturdy, though, and still sits nicely in the hand. It&#39;s sacrificed the old Moto G&#39;s neat, tidy look; there&#39;s just more plastic, so that couldn&#39;t be helped without impressive - and costly - engineering. But Moto has included some very decent (for the money) stereo speakers on the front. They don&#39;t match the <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/htc/htc-one-2/review">One (M8)</a> but you won&#39;t be ashamed to use them in the back garden either.&nbsp;</p> <p>Battery life, again, isn&#39;t quite as great as the Moto G 4G. Streaming video on a commute, the bigger 5in screen sucks up 22% an hour versus the 4.5in phone&#39;s less worrying 16%. Still, it lasts the day so we&#39;re not complaining too much. Speaking of the screen, it&#39;s 720p and chances are you won&#39;t notice the slightly-less-sharp picture compared to the original. Colours are slightly more natural too.&nbsp;</p> <p>The real stars are the two new cameras, both welcome improvements. Images look a lot less blurry and smudgy than before with clear, in-focus shots and accurate colours. Video too is much more usable. The new 8MP cam on the back takes a while to focus at night but if you hold steady, you can get some impressive pics for a &pound;150 phone. All round, we&#39;d still recommend the 4G Moto G &ndash;&nbsp;but if phone photography is your thing, consider the 2014 model.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Stuff says</strong>:&nbsp;<strong>✭✭✭✭</strong><strong>✭</strong><br />Moto has done it again - big screen, almost-stock Android and one of the best cameras for the money&nbsp;</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="604" height="453" title="It&#039;s the Moto G but not as you know it " alt="Best cheap smartphone 2014 test " src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCN5121%20with%20Annotation.jpg?1410954150" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-title"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Motorola Moto G (2014) tech specs </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-body-text"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Body Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p><strong>Screen</strong>: 5in 720x1280 (294 ppi)<br /><strong>Power</strong>: 1.2GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400/1GB RAM<br /><strong>Camera</strong>: 8MP 720p rear, 2Mp front<br /><strong>Battery</strong>: 2070 mAh<br /><strong>Connectivity</strong>: 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0<br /><strong>Storage</strong>: 8/16GB (microSD up to 32GB)<br /><strong>Dimensions</strong>: 141.5 x 70.7 x 11mm/ 149g</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-6"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="4600" height="900" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/also-rans_0.jpg?1410954150" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-7"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> EE Kestrel (£100) </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>4G is no longer a luxury.

For starters, it lacks the lovely HD screen and smooth performance of the top Moto. It also has the most retro design of the bunch, both in terms of hardware and its Emotion UI software. Still, the battery life is brilliant, the expandable storage is handy and unlike some, it has both an OK front camera and a rear flash. It&rsquo;s silly-slim too, at 7.85mm thick.

Exterior attractiveness is conferred by a tidy, slightly curved plastic build, while on the interior HTC&rsquo;s Android skin Sense looks good and runs without a hiccup. Like the Sony Xperia M2, it also packs a few features you&rsquo;d be more likely to see on a &pound;500 phone. So the Desire 310 gets HTC&rsquo;s excellent BlinkFeed RSS reader (searchable and with offline reading), plus the ability to make short video montages with the nifty Zoe Video Highlights tool.</p> <p>But while colours look nice and natural on the 4.5in screen, it&rsquo;s just not got the pixels to show off Android games and HD movies. Plus, it always seems to look a bit grubby even with brightness on full whack, it can get a little warm when taxed, you might need to charge it up before bedtime and the 5MP camera isn&rsquo;t anything special.

Even so, there&#39;s plastic, and there&#39;s <em>plastic</em>. Nokia chose to use the same design language that underpins its Asha line, so the monocoque polycarbonate used here is sturdy. When closed, the front glass and the back plate are seamless. The colours are so vibrant that they almost glow &ndash; which makes it awesome to pick it out among the me-too phones plaguing the market now. It does look a bit cheaper than expected though.</p> <p>With the Moto G, Motorola has revisited its Moto X design &ndash; but added a removable back plate. This means users are able to change the colour according to their mood. While it is chunkier than higher-class smartphones in the market, it doesn&rsquo;t feel cheap to hold and feel. The build quality of the Moto G goes above and beyond its price tag.</p> <p><strong>Winner: </strong>Moto G</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Nokia X vs Motorola Moto G: the weigh in" alt="Nokia X vs Motorola Moto G: the weigh in" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/nokia-x-and-xl-2_1.jpg?1393982235" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Nokia X vs Motorola Moto G: the weigh in" alt="Nokia X vs Motorola Moto G: the weigh in" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCN0002_1.JPG?1393982235" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Display: One company spent more than the other </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>This is where money meets the road, and Motorola certainly spent extra here to make up for the rest of the phone. The 4.5in screen offers a 720p HD resolution which, while it&#39;s no Retina display, offers an eye-pleasingly sharp, detailed and rich picture. Simply put, it&#39;s amazing that Motorola produced such a high quality screen at this price point.</p> <p>For Nokia though, the year is still 2011. With a screen resolution of 800 x 480 pixels, you won&#39;t get the best HD viewing experience, and even worse is the fact that the same resolution is being used in all three phones ( X, X+ and XL) and in two sizes (4in and 5in).

Not only is it running a dated Android version (which is optimised for mid-to-low end devices, such as the X series here), there&#39;s minimal Google support and no Google Play Store &ndash; apps are installed either via Nokia&rsquo;s own app store, or have to be sideloaded into the phone.</p> <p><strong>Winner: </strong>Moto G</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="567" height="425" title="Nokia X vs Motorola Moto G: the weigh in" alt="Nokia X vs Motorola Moto G: the weigh in" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/colours.jpg?1393982235" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-5"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Verdict </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>It&#39;s clear almost right from the start that the Moto G comes off best in this weigh-in.

It doesn&rsquo;t have a great camera but hey &ndash; you can&#39;t have it all.</p> <p>The Nokia X family, however, is special because it&rsquo;s the company&rsquo;s first foray into the Android universe and aimed at emerging countries (nope &ndash; not even the UK will get this phone). Also, it&#39;s a first generation device, and like most of those it has plenty of room for improvement.

Luxury car maker Aston Martin has recalled over 17,000 of its vehicles: all the left-hand drive cars it has built since November 2007 and all the right-hand drive cars it has built since May 2012. That&rsquo;s 1,553 Astons in the UK alone.</p> <p>Why? Well, the Warwickshire-based company has discovered that a Chinese sub-supplier has allegedly been using counterfeit plastic material in part of the accelerator pedal &ndash; and this has led to fears over safety. Hence the drastic measures. Aston Martin says there have not been any accidents as a result of the knock-off part to date.</p> <p><strong>[Source: <a href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-coventry-warwickshire-26058905" target="_blank">BBC News</a>]</strong></p> <p><em>Image credit: <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/25489182@N04/5898018994/in/photolist-9ZbTyE-eVXGmH-bqtGQe-9Mwgdr-bgU3iF-8prGXV-eXiGRM-dY99M6-aw4Vpu-9DjfdQ-7Zy5PG-bQ22dB-aBSTUj-9Sa9mH-9dQkvY-ak762t-dR8qai-9SNumV-9qrePP-btCByL-bd6JFk-aQnH6Z-bjvaVh-8puT1W-9SpFj4-e2pSvX-9j7Tdw-82Afs1-eiB1PU-9XL4TA-83cQcG-e85PbF-9Tao6R-9cjmYn-8CD84e-eayEa1-aBQe46-9U3b15-8K6sWN-bzPWGH-9buozS-839FrD-e8NFd9-7ZuXsM-efVoFY-dWosJK-83cQo1-dnHbXf-8vSRST" target="_blank">Philipp Lücke</a></em></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Aston Martin recalls 17,000 cars over knock-off part" alt="Aston Martin recalls 17,000 cars over knock-off part" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/aston.jpg?1391735420" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> Aston Martin BlackBerry Moto G Wearable tech Wed, 05 Feb 2014 20:40:50 +0000 Sam Kieldsen 1432077 at http://www.stuff.tv Fully Charged: Winamp lives on, SteamVR announced and Moto G gets stock Android http://www.stuff.tv/fully-charged-winamp-lives-steamvr-announced-and-moto-g-gets-stock-android/news <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> All the morning’s biggest and best tech news stories in one place </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Winamp lives on" alt="Winamp lives on" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/winamp-logo%20%281%29.jpg?1389839850" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/sam-kieldsen" title="View user profile.">Sam Kieldsen</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Winamp saved from certain death </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Veteran media play app Winamp was <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/fully-charged-build-your-own-iron-throne-winamp-saved-death-and-white-xbox-one-you-ll-never-own/news">all set for the software version of the glue factory</a>, with owner AOL looking to ditch it as part of a money-saving drive &ndash; but an eleventh hour intervention has given it new life.</p> <p>Belgian digital audio startup Radionomy has acquired both Winamp and media streaming service Shoutcast from AOL in a cash-plus-shares deal.

This is where it all falls apart?</p> <p>Wrong.</p> <p>You&#39;d assume that Motorola could only afford to put in a hamster wheel processor at this price, but the Moto G actually packs in Qualcomm&#39;s 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor.</p> <p>While it&#39;s not as powerful as the absolutely blazing-fast <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/qualcomms-new-snapdragon-800-chip-brings-4k-video-smartphones/news" target="_blank">Snapdragon 800</a>, it&#39;s far from a slouch, and the Moto G handles demanding games such as <em><a href="http://www.stuff.tv/real-racing-3/review" target="_blank">Real Racing 3</a></em> without any hiccups. Again, this goes above and beyond the sort of expectation that the sticker price suggests.</p> <p>We streamed music via Bluetooth while writing part of this very review, and in the background we had Chrome open with ten tabs, a reddit app and a messaging app open.</p> <p>This left around 340mb of RAM available once all the other background processes were taken into account, and the G did occasionally slow down a touch with a little keyboard lag and the occasional pause when switching between apps.</p> <p>We&#39;re chalking this down to the 1GB of RAM on offer and it&rsquo;s a shame Motorola couldn&#39;t stretch to an extra gig.&nbsp;But something obviously had to give, and in the grand scheme of things we&rsquo;ll take the power of the quad-core processor and just be a little more mindful of our open processes &ndash; that&rsquo;s a small price to pay when you&rsquo;re paying such a small price for your phone.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/25-fantastic-free-android-games/feature">The 25 best free games for Android</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Motorola Moto G review" alt="Motorola Moto G review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCN9986.JPG?1408531102" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-title"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Motorola Moto G tech specs </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-body-text"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Body Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <ul> <li>Operating System - Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean)<br />&nbsp;</li> <li>Processor - 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 w/ quad-core Cortex-A7<br />&nbsp;</li> <li>RAM - 1GB<br />&nbsp;</li> <li>Screen - 4.5in with 1280 x 720 resolution (326ppi)<br />&nbsp;</li> <li>Camera - 5MP rear, 1.3MP front<br />&nbsp;</li> <li>Storage - 8/16GB (not expandable)<br />&nbsp;</li> <li>Data - 3G<br />&nbsp;</li> <li>Battery -&nbsp;2070mAh<br />&nbsp;</li> <li>Dimensions/weight -&nbsp;129.9 x 65.9 x 11.6 mm/143g</li> </ul> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Camera: the sensor sacrifice </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>And finally we arrive at the Moto G&#39;s Achilles&#39;

Just the way we like it.</p> <p>There are a few tweaks present in the form of some built-in apps, though. Assist is a very simple but useful app that lets you set the times that you&#39;re sleeping, in a meeting, or otherwise not to be disturbed and ensures that notifications are turned off.</p> <p>Motorola Migrate is a similarly handy app that automates the process of transferring contacts, messages and more from a previous Android device, saving you the hassle of doing it manually.</p> <p>Apart from that, there&#39;s little to say. It&#39;s Android, it&#39;s clean, and it runs well.&nbsp;Deliver on the Android KitKat 4.4 update you promised in January, Motorola, and we&#39;ll be even happier.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/android/25-free-apps-android/feature">The 25 best free apps for Android</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Motorola Moto G review" alt="Motorola Moto G review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCN9996.JPG?1408531102" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="1200" height="900" title="Motorola Moto G review" alt="Motorola Moto G review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCN9999_0.JPG?1408531102" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-3"> <div class="field-label">Image #3:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_3" width="1200" height="900" title="Motorola Moto G review" alt="Motorola Moto G review" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/DSCN9988_0.JPG?1408531102" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-5"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Battery: good for a day </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The Moto G lost 22% battery in 1hr15mins.
