I thought it was made in the US but my son says only the Moto X is assembled here. Where is the G made?

The Moto X is assembled in the US using parts manufactured in China (and elsewhere probably)

The Moto G appears to be pure Chinese made.

15 different states in the US are manufacturing internal components for the Moto X. While the majority of it comes from Asia, more than just the final assembly happens in the US.

Actually no. Many internal parts of smartphones are made in USA, Japan, Korea and Taiwan. For example, Gorilla Glass 3 is made by Corning in the US. Moto G is assembled in China just like X is assembled in USA. Globalization.

China's a big place. You said the same place as a.n.other brand. You didn't implicitly know if it was one of their contract manufacturers making the moto g.

It holds little substance.
