At the end of year 2013,I wanted to purchase my first android phone and my budget was Rs 15000.There were very few options in Indian market in the 15K segment.I almost zeroed-in on Sony Xperia M but some more research helped to find about Moto G which was getting rave reviews from its buyers in USA.After learning about Moto G,I put a brake on my purchase and waited for Moto G to launch in India.Coincidentally it was available just in time for my birthday during February 2014.Now I am the proud owner of Moto G.
Moto G shook the Indian market with its specs and value for money.Recently Xiaomi Mi3 has been doing the same.
