Got my refund for Moto E3. Somehow managed to use the flipkart voucher as well. And ordered a Moto g4 play. Amazon had 15% cash back and a 1000 INR gift card too. In hindsight I got a better deal on the Moto G4 play than the E3 power.
Regarding the OTG issue. They took a lot of time acknowledging that there was an issue.
Since I had the phone for a week and used it extensively, I am in a situation to post a review of sorts which may help the others wanting to purchase.
Those thinking of buying the Moto e3 power should keep in mind that it's a phone which will work well if used ONLY for basic stuff. Calls, messages, social media, and consuming content. This PHONE IS NOT MEANT FOR GAMING.
But day to day tasks are performed well and you won't face any lag.
The battery life nothing short of spectacular. It lasted a full day on heavy use. SOT was 8~9hrs.
The phone does not get hot, nowhere near the Moto g4 plus if we use that as an example.
The charging is slow. Takes 2 hours to charge and that too when you're not using the phone, if you do it may take longer.
Camera was decent. Like a said just a basic camera. Nothing special.
The only con was that it won't be getting the Android N update.
If update is a priority then go for g4 play else Moto e3 power is a good choice.
Hope this helps.!
Subash, 26 Oct 2016Do this mobile support Geo 4 G simYes. It supports JIO 4G (volte)
its been a month.. I ve an issue, whenever i get a call and i try to take the phone out of my pocket it either disconnects r connects.. and the power button is not fast enough like other phones.. it sometimes takes 3 seconds to display the lock screen..

Phone is good. From last 1 month I am using it.. But the only problem in this phone is that you can not select both SIM on 3g mode i.e. you can only change SIM 1 settings to 2g,3g,LTE and SIM2 is by default 2g, you can not even change it to 3g as mentioned in features.

But if I use it better than you, you should pay me 10 times the market price.
I am not writing these comments out of my imaginations. I have had used the prototype test units much before it came to market.i know it's capabilities and limitations.
shameer111, 24 Oct 2016Guys pls check Lenovo a7700.,its ditto like Moto e3 power The only differences are A7700... moreMan if you don't know then don't comment, Lenovo purchased Motorola by end of 2014, search before you type. G3 comes under Lenovo.
Anonymous 1234, 24 Oct 2016Very low processor only 1ghz . you can't play Mini Militia for 30min 😑😑... moreI play same game for continuous 1 hour and more than that, and I'm not facing any issue, i don't know why people like you post fake reviews.
ab, 25 Oct 2016You are wright Just it like iPhone 5s Man if you don't know then don't comment, Lenovo purchased Motorola by end of 2014, search before you type. G3 comes under Lenovo.
aatif khan, 25 Oct 2016He knows how to use a phone perfectly inspite of its limitations.that is his attitude.
And ... moreEarlier to this, I had Moto E 1st gen. And I was happy wih it despite no front cam, fixed focus main cam, no flash etc...
Reason was it used to do what it said.. No fancy expectations. And now that I have upgraded to E3, is there anything wrong with higher expectations? My only expectation is to get what a product is advertised to be.. Nohing more and nothing less.
Will you be happy with your current smartphone (if you have any) with a functionality of a Nokia 3310?
If yes I am ready to sell you such basic phones for a price of a smartphone.. Will you buy it?:)

And you my friend (along with similar ones like you), are more interested in finding faults and crying around on this forum.even if you own a flagship, you will still be amongst those unhappy lot.coz that's your attitude.
It is attitude which matters.nothing is perfect in this world. Being happy or unhappy is our choice.
Issue accepted by Motorola doesn't mean each and every handset needs to be affected.
ravi, 24 Oct 2016Which mobile i should buy moto g4 play 4th gen and moto e3 power please sugget one mobile...????Go for G4 play.
It will be better than E3 Power.
But if you want beefy battery, then chose E3 Power.
But mind you, both are basic phones, good for phone calls,messages,emails etc.
Don't expect too much like games and heavy graphics application on these.
When you buy any of these two, request to do the following
- do not use phone while charging
- do not try to download many apps at same time. Load them one by one.have patience.
- prolonged usage with graphics intensive apps will result in warming of both devices. Please understand, these are not power robots, but are basic phones.
- try not to cover with thick and heavy protective shells / skins. It may hinder dissipation of warming.
- AND DONT GO BY NEGATIVE COMMENTS THAT YOU SEE. DECIDE FOR YOURSELF. NO PHONE IS PERFECT. IT IS UPTO A USER HOW HE/ SHE USES IT PERFECTLY ( after understanding it's limitations)
If you stick to basics ,you will have a pleasant experience.
Omkar...Omky, 23 Oct 2016Dude, there some problem in your thinking, when I was trying to tell same thing few days back,... moreThe Motorola has accepted that they have this issue regarding unable to charge after OTG (software issue with every phone).
So just wondering... how everything is so perfectly working in your phone already? They haven't released the OTA update yet :)

Don't know what to do.
I can not hear the other persons voice while call because of very very low volume, but the speaker is perfect , all music and speaker call works perfectly. looks like software problem.
