The budget Moto G smartphone is now in stock with 4G LTE and microSD support in the U.S., available for purchase straight from Motorola's website.

The Moto G has proved to be Motorola's most popular handset, as it has raised the bar for what budget smartphones have to offer. The device comes with impressive specifications for its price point, and the addition of 4G LTE support and expandable storage only makes it more attractive to smartphone shoppers on a budget.

The 4G LTE model of the Moto G comes with 8GB of internal storage capacity and the aforementioned microSD card support for additional memory, carrying a price tag of just $219 unlocked. The Moto G 4G LTE was previously available for pre-order from Motorola's website, but now it is finally in stock and ready to ship.

The addition of 4G LTE and microSD are the only two changes compared to the original Moto G that came only in a 3G version with no expandable storage. Other than that, the smartphone's specifications remain unchanged, which means that it sports a 4.5-inch HD 720p display with Gorilla Glass 3 protection, a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 5-megapixel rear camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front shooter. On the software side, the handset runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box, but is upgradeable to the very latest Android 4.4.3. A 2,070 mAh battery will keep things up and running, providing decent battery performance on a single charge.

The Moto G 4G LTE is also available for purchase from Amazon for the same $219, but buying the handset straight from Motorola does come with one advantage. Motorola offers a free one-time screen replacement in case of damage, but this only applies to devices purchased through its own website. In other words, if you buy the Moto G from Amazon instead of Motorola, you will not be eligible for this free screen replacement.

Either way, the choice is yours. You can now purchase the Moto G 4G LTE from Motorola's website here, or place your order with Amazon at this link. If you don't necessarily need 4G LTE or microSD, the smartphone is also available in the 3G version with no expandable storage for $179.
