Motorola’s newest budget-friendly smartphone: The Moto G14

Motorola has launched its newest addition to its mid-tier smartphone collection, the Moto G14. Coming in at $229, this handset offers great features at an affordable price. Not to mention, the phone comes in two different colours, one of which being a pretty lilac made from vegan leather, giving the look and feel of a far more expensive phone.

Motorola has made it a focus to make technology as widely available as possible, a point made by Kurt Bonnici, Head of Motorola for Australia and New Zealand. 

“Our Moto G family stands out because we deliver smartphones at an affordable price without compromising on the quality features that consumers want – and the Moto G14 is no exception with its large Full HD+ display, immersive audio and long-lasting battery,” said Mr Bonnici.

“Through our Moto G family, we continue to democratise new technology, making the latest innovation and features widely accessible ensuring every consumer is able to find a device that not only meets their needs, but exceeds their expectation of a mid-tier smartphone.”
