Motorola Moto G (2014) 2nd Generation is Now Available in Bangladesh

Moto G was undoubtedly one of the best budget android mobile. After huge success of the Moto G 2013, Motorola introduced the second generation Moto G 2014 with a bigger size and a higher mega pixel camera. But, other things surprisingly remained almost unchanged. I am surprised to see the same 2070 mAh battery for the increased 5 inch screen. Obviously it will result in a poorer battery life than the first generation Moto G. The RAM could have been a little bit higher 1.5 GB at least. There is no NFC or infra-red (we can not even expect this for that price). An updated processor and chipset would be a great thing for the new Moto G. The 4g connectivity is not available in the new Moto G and the battery is not removable. I do not think the Moto G 2014 is going to be a big hit like its predecessor. The 8 GB version is available in Bangladesh for 20,000 TK.

iPhone 6 Price & Specs in Bangladesh

At last apple has come with the bigger iPhone by introducing iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus. The screen size of iPhone 6 is 4.7 inch (1334 x 750 pixel) not even full HD. The dimension of the handset is much bigger for a 4.7 inch screen in comparison to other flagship. You will be disappointed to compare its dimension with Nexus 5 which has a 5 inch screen (Nexus 5 has 5.44 x 2.64 x 0.27 inch vs iPhone 6 has 5.43 x 2.72 x 0.34 inch). It even misses some useful features like radio, NFC (limited to apple pay), infrared, micro SD, removable battery. The introduction of water & dust resistance would be a great addition. The camera has not been improved from the 8 MP. The price is very expensive in terms of it hardware. Yet, it is a product of apple. With all of these shortcomings it is faster than it competitors. That is why people wants to buy an iPhone. If budget does not bother you may try the latest from apple, the iPhone 6.
