2) Expandable memory
3) 5 inch screen
4) 8 MP camera

My friend's sister has been using this phone for last 6 months without any issues.
Just bought Lenovo S860 for Mom few days back. It's better looking than P780 with 5.5 inch screen, Quad core proc, 16 GB internal storage and 4000mAh battery. It will also get latest Android KitKat update soon as per Lenovo. Available for 18k at ebay and 19-20k at snapdeal and thedoitstore.com

Thanks dude. I had seen that phone, but since the person who asked the question in first place, has a limited budget of max 16k, so I suggested P780. But stretching the budget by 2-3k should be worth it.

I am tempted towards S860, however, it is little out of budget. I am also thinking about S660. This looks to be coming well under my budget. Any feedback on S660 vs Moto G?

Volume control button as such works fine without any issues on my Nexus 5 running Kitkat 4.4.2. What issue are you facing?

Moto g update after a month and a half:

Well, I can safely conclude that the moto g is the best Android phone I have ever owned. I recently got my hands on the Sony xperia ultra t2 and the moto g absolutely blows it outta the water in terms of performance. And for those who think the camera is insufficient, believe me, it isn't! I have about 60+ apps installed and not even once, did the moto g stutter. 1 gb ram is as good as 2 gb since there's absolutely no unnecessary bloatware. Touch here, touch there, it responds the way you want it to. The screen is absolutely phenomenonal. The body is even great. It took a few drops and I tried my best to look for scratches but nope, not a single scratch to the screen and no damage done to the edges. Dropped it in the washbasin once, obviously by mistake, it got soaked but still, nothing happened. I let it dry for an hour under a hot and bright table lamp. The music, now what do I say about the music, it's amazing through the loudspeaker and brilliant through some quality headphones. The only drawback I've ever had is the stock charger charges at an incredibly slow rate but then again, it's due to the output of the stock charger. I use another charger with a higher output and it solved the problem. Battery backup is about 2 days for me. Some people insist on the fact that (even I did) that android phones last for a few months till they become haphazardly slow and dull, my old galaxy pop became ridiculously slow after a month but this, the moto g, it ain't showing any such signs :-). You can imagine what a rooted and custom flashed moto g would behave like if the stock one itself is blazing fast. No reported glitches from my side, though some users reported of a few, but nothing heart wrenching. Anyways I believe the moto g is future proof. I don't need a 4k capable, heart rate sensing, calorie measuring, know it all smartphone. The moto g suffices, ticks all the boxes for me, but then again, to each their own. A few pictures from the camera I took today. Need I mention that I typed this from my moto :-)

Thanks for the review. How is the call clarity and network coverage ?

One tip - it is not a good idea to point a camera directly at a bright light source like the sun. It can cause damage to the camera sensor.

Call quality is good, not a problem, network coverage sometimes drops, not a major problem since it mostly just drops by one bar or two. Overall, no problem with connectivity. :-)

Nah gonna wait for the z2 ultra maybe. Seriously 49k! These guys are going overboard with pricing. Good job going with the moto g @createrkid. I may too. Was gonna get the T2 Ultra but no forum on XDA means no buy from my side.

I am looking at Moto G for official use since it has dual SIM.
@createrkid: Thank you for your input.
The Moto E will be announced on 13th and the price will be lower than Moto G. Leaked specifications indicate that it is a really low end device.

The high end phone is expected closer to holiday season when people tend to splurge.

Are these pics straight out of cam? Look a little processed. All reviews indicate the cam is weakest link here. That is what is holding me back. Some reviewers even suggested a firmware update might improve things a little.

What are the speculated specs?

Looks like Moto is keen to take on the likes of MMX/Karbonn in the Indian market!

Yup, they're camera pics itself but I don't use the stock camera, I use another app which has way more settings to adjust light exposure etc.
