WOW: Moto G Google Play Edition Now Available, Starting at $179!

It’s no secret that the highly regarded Moto G has been a major success ever since its launch a few months back. The device, which doesn’t delude itself with false flagship aspirations still manages to deliver a fantastic user experience. And perhaps more importantly, it does this at a price that doesn’t break the bank. Now, Google has just made the Moto G that much more enticing, by releasing the Moto G Google Play edition for the same $179 price that made the original device so ground-breaking.

Though recent Moto G purchasers may be upset to learn that a new GPe version is available, there will undoubtedly be ports made in no time, and we’ll be sure to cover them here on the Moto G section of the XDA Portal. Furthermore, the GPe variant of the G may not feature the same Dalvik and Bionic optimizations that make the current device so efficient. But if that’s the case, putting them back will be no issue.

At these prices, and now that there’s a GPe version, there’s almost no reason not to love the Moto G.

Let us know your thoughts on the newest member of the GPe family in the comments below, and make your way over to the Google Play Store links to get yours:

And of course, don’t forget to visit our Moto G forum, where you’ll be able to find all of the latest development work on Motorola’s fantastic little device!

Sunday Debate: Are Smaller Bezels Better or Worth It?

Bezels have been getting smaller and smaller as the years go by, and while devices from 2011 needed to trim some fat, there is no absolute rule that says that smaller bezels, after a happy medium, are beneficial to a phone. Part of this is that, with today’s current smartphone paradigms, an absolute lack of bezels does not produce an inherently better user experience.   With each technological advancement come limitations and compromises of some sort, and bezels are not...
