Motorola’s family of Moto-series smartphones has always been defined by its price points. From the Moto E at the most affordable end of things, options extended all the way up to the Moto X, leaving the Moto G squarely in the middle.

But this year Motorola’s complicated things with the addition of a new Moto X option, the Moto X Play. With slightly less capable hardware than the Moto X Style (and a correspondingly lower price tag), the Play creates a new rung on the Moto phone ladder; so where does that leave the Moto G?

Even with the arrival of a new mid-priced option, the Moto G isn’t going anywhere, and it’s back this year with some of its best-equipped hardware to date. Let’s not waste any more time, and get right to checking out all the components that make this new Moto G the model it is:
