Midrange unlocked phones are becoming increasingly popular, but the market is still a bit of a minefield. Some models are OK, but others aren’t even worth their meager asking price. If you need the cheapest decent phone you can get, that’s the Motorola Moto G. Compared with most phones in this price range, the Moto G has amazing build quality and software. You can find two versions of the Moto G: a 4.5-inchscreen phone from 2013 and a 5-inch model released in 2014. Both have the same 720p resolution, identical quad-core Snapdragon processors and 1 GB of RAM. The 2013 Moto G is just $200 with LTE, while the newer 2014 version without LTE is $180. We think the older LTE version is the better value for people in the U.S., since the phones are so similar otherwise.
