Moto G Going to Virgin Mobile – Accepting ‘Tester Team’ Applications

February 27, 2014 - Written By Cory McNutt

Telus and Koodo’s exclusivity with the Moto G is about to come to an end as Virgin Mobile has announced that it is looking for people to join a “Virgin Mobile Tester Team.” They want you to take a Moto G “for a spin” and give them four Twitter tips or tricks regarding the Moto G over the next four weeks. Use the hashtag #vmtester to get out your messages and as a thank you, the Moto G will be yours to keep. Just go to Virgin Mobiles’ website (the link is at the end of the article) and apply for the job by telling them “in 100 words or less why you would be an awesome Virgin Mobile tester.” If you are one of the lucky five selected as a tester, you can get yourself a free Moto G – not a bad deal at all.

The Moto G is an awesome piece of hardware for around $200 – when first announced, Motorola said they wanted to build a smartphone with deceit specs that people could afford…and I would say that their mission is accomplished. They said that many people could not afford the price of a new phone so they would take a hand-me-down or they were forced to buy a two-year old flagship that was, many times, out of date or looked used from the usual wear and tear. By offering the Moto G at $200, they were giving a customer the chance to purchase a brand new phone with good specs at a reasonable price.

The buyer is getting a 4.5-inch 720p display, a quad-core processor with a solid GPU, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, a decent 5MP camera and a 2070mAh battery to power the device. You will also get the latest OS in Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. There is no microSD card expansion for additional internal storage and that may upset the media enthusiasts – but Google and Motorola are trying to encourage people store their media in the cloud for easy access on all of your devices.

So get to the Virgin Mobile website and fill out your application – you may be one of the lucky five selected to get yourself a FREE Moto G. Please let us know on our Google+ Page if you are looking forward to getting your hands on the new Moto G.
