Motorola Moto G features
Slate form factor is the most popular form factor for smartphones currently. They are apt for touch enabled gadgets that usually have very minimal physical buttons.
Android is an Open Source Mobile Operating System by Google for touchscreen devices. Each OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer, e.g.: Samsung, LG, HTC) can use Android for free and tweak it for their device. There are more than 8 versions till date, latest one being Android Kit-Kat. This phones runs on Android 4.4 Jelly Bean.
Processor: Quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7
Multiple Cores help you multi-task better. Each core come with an Independent CPU. Also, multi core processors use power more efficiently and play an important role in increasing battery life.
Graphics: Adreno 305
GPU or Graphics Processing Units are dedicated processors assigned with a task of rendering computer graphics. Faster GPUs give better graphics experience while playing games or doing graphic intensive tasks.
Touchscreen: Capacitive touchscreen
Capacitive screens use electrodes to sense the touch of an object that simply has the dielectric value different than that of air. This gives the capacitive screens a slighter edge with respect to sensitivity of the screen. Even a small swipe by the tip of a finger is enough to generate a response whereas its counterpart (resistive touch) requires a heavy touch to get the necessary response.
Pixel density: 326 PPI (Pixels Per Inch)Multitouch
Pixel density (PPI) gives you the number of pixels per inch of diagnol size. For good clarity (at 100% zoom), minimum acceptable PPI is around 300. Anything lower than 225 is considered below average.
The 3rd Generation of wireless network technology is well know for its fast data transfer rates. It provide download speeds of several megabits/second, allowing you to stream videos and browse the internet faster. The network is quite widespread in India, especially in major cities.
A-GPS or Assisted GPS use an assistive server (over the data network or Wi-Fi) to decrease the startup time of a traditional GPS device. Traditional GPS device take around 30 to 40 seconds to detect the location.
Video Recording: 720p
720p is a high definition standard for recording video. It lets you record HD videos at a resolution of 1280 by 720 pixels. The standard is quite common now.
Video Recording: 30 Frames per second (fps)
FPS or Frames per second refer to the rate at which videos are recorded. A high FPS rating will allow you to record fast moving subjects properly.
Front Camera: 1.3 MP
Also knows as secondary camera. It is used for making Video Calls, allowing you to look at the screen while doing so. They are usually of lower resolution than the primary camera.
Camera feature: HDR
HDR or High Dynamic Range allows you to capture more vibrant photos by increasing the dynamic range between the dark and bright areas in a photo. The phone captures multiple photos at different exposure levels and merges them to achieve the effect.
Accelerometers are used to detect the orientation of the phone. They automatically detect when the device is turned and change the display from landscape to portrait and vice versa.
Sensors: Digital compass
Digital compass detect the direction with respect to the magnetic or true poles. They provide relative direction with respect to North, South, East and West.
