Default Moto G discontinued (Flipkart confirms remaining stock is the last)

Quote:
Moto G2 is set to be announced on the September 4 event internationally, Indian announcement to follow on September 5 at New Delhi. It was a question whether Motorola would discontinue the moto g in favor of G2. Flipkart now announced that they are conducting the sale [of the] last stock of Moto G. So it is confirmed that the Moto G will be discontinued and its place will be taken by the Moto G2.

Moto G has been hugely successful in India. Moto announced that it sold over 1 million handsets through Flipkart till June. Moto is now the 4th biggest smartphone company in India, ahead of Nokia. They achieved this by just 3 handsets, most of the nmbers is because of Moto G.

Moto recently slashed Moto Gís price by Rs.2000 due to recent increase in competition (read Xiaomi Mi 3 and Asus Zenfone 5), making it more attractive for buyers and a nicer deal. Moto G 8gb model recently got out of stock recently and have not been replenished till now. It is to be expected that it was the last stock of Moto G 8gb version. Now, with Flipkartís ĎGet yours before itís gone!í sale, it might be your last chance to get a Moto G.

Moto G2 has been in news and leaks for some time. In case you donít know, G2 is said to feature a 5-inch 720p display with the same snapdragon 400 processor coupled with 1GB ram. Camera units might be a 5 or 8 megapixel primary with 2 megapixel secondary. It is also said to feature dual front speakers like the htc One. The price might be slightly higher than the Moto G.

Moto G 16gb is set to go out of stock soon and will be permanently unavailable soon. Flipkart is also offering 50% off on Moto G accessories in favor of clearing out stock. It is the best and last time you can get your Moto G, Buy it now or never!

I suppose the good news is that Moto G 2 appears to be essentially the same hardware as Original Moto G. That should mean it won't take much more work for Motorola to create versions of Android 'L' that work on both devices.

I don't care if this or that is discontinued, I just wish my little fellow gets a taste of Android L... Hope to see a new notification saying "New system update available".. That's all I want..

Android L will be the last system update for moto g for sure.. In the future, when android M and N comes out, we will have to look at Cyanogen to have a new custom firmware...

Well,this is sad,because this device is highly known and a great quality device. I think it deserves to get android L at least,and for future updates we cant rely on Cyanogenmod,because currently do not have a high support. I dont know who this guy Ethan Chen is,but i know that dhacker is a great dev,and his support was better. I'm 99.9% shure that he would port L and future updates if he was an offical maintainer.

So in conclusion,we just need barebone android L image and the majority of us will be satisfied.
(my device's codename is Falcon,so that's why i have a falcon in my signature

Moto G MAN

The Moto G will get the Android L upgrade and i guarantee it. Motorola is still not fully with Lenovo yet. And i read since that Moto's software is near AOSP it should be easy for them to upgrade us soon, but since the Moto G2 is coming out we may get it like a week or two later. Remember how we got kitkat on December 24 even though Motorola said it was coming early 2014 or something like that?

That's true, since this is a worldwide well known device, it should receive L, because it would be a great hit between customers. But if you think, maybe if falcon is discontinued, for Motorola won't be necessary to upgrade the device to L since moto g won't be available anymore.

But, if Motorola wants to be recognized as one of the best device maintainers talking about updates, they must consider upgrade falcon to L. Then, Motorola users, with no doubt, will gen a moto in the future instead of buying another phone.

Larger screen on g2 with same resolution translates to lower PPI. Only significant change is the camera.

I actually bought the g for the smaller screen and 720p quality . I already have the s3 and s4 which are slightly uncomfortable to hold in one hand due to their larger screens . I also have the moto e which is as good as the g. You won't find much difference in the moto g and e for daily use except if you need the front camera for video calls then moto g does not have it . Sorry for being slightly OT .
