Moto G Now Available In Canada

Moto G - 2

The new Moto G was just announced a few days ago (July 28 to be exact) and already its available for purchase here in Canada!  Motorola launched the device today and several carriers, including Bell, Telus, Virgin, Koodo and SaskTel, have added the budget device to their line up.  Here’s a rundown of the specs again:

  • 5″ 720p Display
  • Quad-Core Snapdragon 410
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB Internal Storage
  • microSD Card Slot
  • 13MP Camera
  • 5MP Front Facing Camera
  • 2470 mAh Battery
  • IPX7 Water Resistant Rating
  • Android 5.1.1

I’ve been playing around with the device over the past day or so and I have to say that it definitely outperforms its price tag.  With a price tag of about $200-$230 (price depends on the carrier you go with), you’re getting a solid phone that will offer good performance, a pretty decent camera, solid battery life, and some durability thanks to its IPX7 rating.

    Do you think it would be worthwhile to get the 2GB Ram version? I would prob buy from the US. How is it with 1GB of Ram? I’ve got the old Moto Rzr HD with 1GB of ram and it is really slow at opening apps. Not sure if it is just an old phone.

      I’ve been playing around with the Canadian version a couple of days and it runs pretty smoothly. However, I did notice a little bit of slow down when I had multiple apps running and tried opening heavier web pages. It wasn’t terrible by any means but I’m pretty sure the limited RAM contributed to slow down. Hope that helps a little
