Google announces Play Edition Moto G

 

The Moto G has landed in the Google Play store running stock Android. The phone is selling for as low as $179 unlocked and will work on AT&T and T-Mobile. Unlike other non-Google phones that end up in its store however, there really isn't much of a change here: the Moto G was already running nearly-stock Android and only sold off contract. Buying a Google Play edition model may result in owners getting faster updates to new version of Android though, and that's at least one big reason to buy direct from Google.

Low-cost Nexus device, anybody?

Seems redundant considering the new phones from Motorola have been getting updates quicker than before.

This continued lack of GE editions outside the USA is so annoying.

Agreed, was just going to post the same. I think the Google Play editions of popular devices are a great idea.

^^ That gif never gets old

 

MotoG seems to be a cool low cost phone. Best I would say. 

 

But putting in 100$ or so extra, Nexus 5 would be more future proof choice, isn't it?

Almost $200 extra.  N5s start at 350
