One of the best features of this device is that it offers a near stock Android experience, although not the latest since it still uses Android 4.2.2 instead of Android 4.3.
The camera used on this model is also one of its highlights as it uses a technology called Clear Pixel. This allows up to 75 percent of light to the camera sensor compared to regular smartphones.
While a quick look at its specs will reveal a device that’s similar to today’s mid-range Android devices it is not your typical smartphone. Motorola has focused more on the ergonomics of the device and the end user experience with the hardware only given second priority.
