[Unboxing] Moto G 3rd Generation HDTV

The unboxing of the Moto G 3rd Generation with 16GB and Digital TV
  • [Unboxing] Moto G 3rd Generation HDTV

I wanna say hi, folks! This will be my first article ever published in english and, despite that, I will try to write it in the most correct way possible (grammar nazis are welcome to comment and help me learn the language even more).

Before getting it going, I will guess what you might think: "oh come on, moto G is not even a flagship smartphone, I can't see the use of this article". The thing is it doesn't matter (lol), I have been using this very Moto G in my daily basis and the price of it is the killing factor.

Even in Brazil where things can cost triple or even more compared to the $$$ price tag, we have here an awesome smartphone option (there'll be more details about the device and its specs).

Moto G 3rd Gen
Box opened! Its content? revealed.

My wife has had the Moto G 2nd Generation for quite a while, which made wonder about the new one that has: 4G LTE capable, Dual Micro-SIM slots, microSD slot up to 32GB, 16GB of internal memory for apps and stuff and something that might not be as useful abroad: a Digital TV Receptor. So I can watch the champions league without access to wifi...

The pictures above were taken using the smartphone. Great quality and agility while doing so... the focus of the camera impressed me as well! The main camera has 13MP and the front one, 5MP Full HD.

According to Motorola, the smartphone complies to the IPX7 standard, meaning it is capable of being submerged up to 1 meter or taking droplets of water without malfunctioning or ruining itself. No extreme watersports activities though.

IPX7: the device can be kept underwater up to 30 minutes and 1 meter tops.
