Hi! I have the MOTO G gen 1. as well and I have been researching this upgrade for a while and I would say DEFINITELY get it. The $299 model is within spitting distance of the Samsung Note 4 that is about $400 more than the Zenfone. The processor is PLENTY for 1080p and it has 4gb of RAM for almost no lag in daily use. I would consider that a fantastic upgrade!
