You can also control the Moto G by speaking to it. You can touch voice search and immediately speak a Google search request. From the Google Search app, you can touch Voice then dictate one of these commands, along with your specific instructions: navigate to, send text, call, send email, map of, go to (Web site), note to self (voice note) or directions to (destination).
In addition, the Motorola Assist app lets you automate common tasks such as replying to texts when you're driving, silencing your ringer when you have a meeting scheduled and conserving your battery when it runs low. It'll even suggest actions based on your phone usage, giving you the option of accepting or deleting its recommendations.
For working with MS Office documents and spreadsheets, the Moto G comes with Quick Office.
With Boost Mobile's low monthly nut and no hard limits on data, voice or texting, it's an ideal choice for teens. You won't see any surprise bills if your kid goes overboard on mobile activity. Anyone certainly enjoy saving a lot of money on their monthly mobile phone bill, though.
In addition to being able to buy a new phone at any time with no penalty, you can also return a Boost Mobile phone within 14 days if you decide you don't like it. Just save all the original packaging.
All mobile carriers have some dead areas. If you'll need frequent access to a reliable mobile network, I recommend trying a friend's phone that uses the Sprint network in your neighborhood or workplace to make sure you have adequate coverage.
The cheapest iPhone uses 3G and has 8 GB of storage like the Moto G, but has only a 3.5" display and costs $300 off contract. Boost Mobile offers a few Android phones, including the Moto G, which cost less than $200.
I did encounter an issue with the Moto G after it went through a system update. The device lost its mobile connection to the Sprint network and required tech support to fix. It doesn't seem like a common occurrence as I haven't seen anything written about it in online reviews. It's probably one of those things that could occur with any smart phone when it goes through a system update.
If you mostly want to make phone calls, send texts and emails, take pictures and play a few games, you probably won't notice having 3G mobile data instead of 4G, particularly if you connect to Wi-Fi whenever possible. You can perform these tasks along with much more at a rock bottom price with the Moto G.
