Hello there...! Today something happened to my cellphone that almost drives crazy. I was listening to music when I plugged the phone to the charger, all of the sudden the screen went blank and the nothification like was blinking like twice per second. I tried to turn it on or off but was not responding. After 10 minutes it responded again. I looked for some info on Google and people were saying it was related with the Software update to KitKat 4.4.4. Is there anyone who knows if this is true? Or could know why that happend? The cellphone was purchased brand new on Saturday.

Hi! I just noticed that among the specifications for this decive, it shows a SD Card Slot to place external memory. However, earlier this day I asked in one of my country's mobile carrier and they told me it does not support external memory. So now I'm confused. Does it have sd card lost? Or it doesn't? Thanks in advance for the answer.

This is a very nice smartphone. VERY good display. Good battery life. GOOD responsiveness. Very good overall (running on 4.4.4). I wouldn't update to Lollipop unless I am 1000% sure I know what I'm doing and that it's worth it. Right now on 4.4.4 it's so smooth and lovely. May Jesus Christ bless you all. - Leonardo.

Just bought this phone a few hours ago. I'm very impressive about the speed so far.

Hi All,

I want to use a mobile as offline gps navigator (using apps like sygic or MapFactor without internet/data connection). My questions are:

1. How is Moto E's offline GPS capability? Does it catch gps easily?

2. Should I go for Moto G as I have seen lot of people have fantastic gps catch with Moto G even inside their house?

3. Moto E's processor is Snapdragon 410 which should be better then Moto G's Snapdragon 400, isn't it?

4. Is Beidou working on Moto E?

Please reply

Thanks

Google Play (free uk road maps offline)

https://play.google.com/store/search?q=free%20uk­%20road%20maps%20offline&c=apps

You should be able to transfer (backup/export); photos, Videos, media, and audio files to SDHC (32GB-well 2GB too small) Memory Cards.

Can only transfer Apps.(Applications/programs) to SDHC cards IF the Author/Manufacturer who created the App. allow you to do so.

In theory should be able to transfer everything from the phone to a computer: told by Motorola UK.

It maybe possible to back up everything to a Google Cloud account free for each account created
- get 15GB free storage told by Motorola UK.

YES: you should be able to transfer Locus Pro to the SD Memory Card.
Haven't purchased the phone yet, but you should be able to transfer Locus Pro to SD Memory Card,because found their website Forum:

I have eventually found this link, which is probably better than the next 2nd to 4th Links below from the forum:
LOCUS - Knowledge Base:
http://docs.locusmap.eu/doku.p...rd_on_kitkat

Properly read the following website' links maybe three times, before trying to use any of them if you have any problems.

Format should probably be (NTFS or 32 FAT, I think, because exFAT, if using greater than 32GB probably may not work)
It probably didn't work for the person, because used Beta (experimental) software - Too risky to use any Beta Software.

Three Forum Links:
http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/...c-or-copilot
http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/...ing-lollipop
http://help.locusmap.eu/topic/...arting-locus

I don't know if the following will be any help, which I probably found yesterday;
Android 5.0 Lollipop Tips & Tricks! - YouTube - Dopla Khoea - Superb!
*Off-line (don't require Data to use Maps) - Google (Lite version): Play from 11:30 Mins.

For Android you need to download HERE maps from Google Play. On the GPS receiver issue I can't help you, though, you will just have to experiment.

Doesn't sound like yours is as it should be to me, you could try installing the google now launcher but I would be returning it to seller in your case. Hope that helps
