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/my/qualcomms-new-snapdragon-800-chip-brings-4k-video-smartphones/news-0" 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> </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;

In other words, we were hammering it pretty hard.</p> <p>In our more formal test the Moto G lasted 8 hrs 17mins looping a 720p video with the screen set at 50% brightness and email sync switched on.
