it's a decent phone for 2011 but was outclassed then and is a really bad deal now... if u paid more than 100 eu for the xt615 in the past three years u got ripped off
SD card reader is garbage, the processor is slow, pitiful but sufficient RAM, no OS updates means it's more obsolete every day, reception is garbage, it holds a charge for a whole day off of light use only, and the one I've had for three years has repeatedly let me down, crashing apps, unsupported business, restarting on its own, failing to read the SD card and giving BS reasons. software issues and negligible hardware specs = poor product. it's style without substance and I'd sooner have bought a flip phone and suffered with T9 - the keyboard on this is terrible if you have male-sized hands
my memory slot is working,when i inset memory i says it has unsupported files in it. i should format but i did it still not working why.
Nanc, 24 Dec 2014Have had phone for 2 years. June 2012. No problems. Have replaced battery once. And again this... moreRoot your phone and upgrade to Android 5.0
To find a tutorial, Google this:
Upgrade/Update Motorola Moto Xt615 to 5.0 Lollipop
From the little gingerbread phone that so many people have bad-mouthed....this is just a little touch of How Do You Like Me Now?
The users of Motorola Moto Xt615 can now update their handsets to Android 5.0 Lollipop using custom ROM. The new Android 5.0 Lollipop comes with many new features :
- Up to 4x performance improvements.
- A battery saver feature which extends device use by up to 90 mins.
- It has a faster, smoother and more powerful computing experience.
- Support for 64-bit SoCs using ARM, x86, and MIPS-based cores.
- OpenGL ES 3.1 and Android extension pack brings Android to the forefront of mobile graphics putting it on par with desktop and console class performance.
- Responsive, natural motion, realistic lighting and shadows, and familiar visual elements make it easier to navigate your device.
- More intelligent ranking of notifications based on who they’re from and the type of communication. See all your notifications in one place by tapping the top of the screen.
- New devices come with encryption automatically turned on to help protect data on lost or stolen devices.
- SELinux enforcing for all applications means even better protection against vulnerabilities and malware.
- State of the art video technology with support for HEVC main profile to allow for UHD 4K 10-bit video playback, tunneled hardware video decoding to save power and improved HLS support for streaming.
- and other cool features.
Here are some more aspects that users should know before trying out the custom ROM :
- Users need to have proper back-up for their personal data on the device.
- The handset should have at least 80 percent of battery power.
- The users also need to ensure that USB Debugging is enabled on the device.
- During the installation, if the device gets stuck on booting, users can perform wipe cache partition and wipe dalvik before rebooting the device.
1. Download Android 5.0 Lollipop ROM for Motorola Moto Xt615 from link below :
The ROM File size is big, so I split the file into 3 parts :
ROM Part 1 : http://goo.gl/7pyL97
ROM Part 2 : http://goo.gl/ffHU2x
ROM Part 3 : http://goo.gl/l1zKh5
To combine 3 parts files above into 1 file just use WINRAR, then extract the files into ZIP format. If any problem with the ROM, maybe because the ROM have corrupted during the download process, you can try to re-download the ROM.
2. Install the ROM Manager on your Motorola Moto Xt615 . Get it from Google Play Store, then install the clockwork mod recovery. You also can use ROM Installer application from JRummy Apps Inc.(Get it from Google Play Store).
3. Connect your Motorola Moto Xt615 to your PC employing the USB information cable. Copy the “ROM.zip” file you downloaded to the SD memory card.
4. Restart your device in the recovery mode using ROM Manager. As soon as in Recovery Mode, go to ROM Manager and select backup/restore to back-up your information.
5. From the Recovery Menu do a total data erase (including Delvik Cache). When completed, go back to Recovery Principal Menu and choose Flash ROM from SD Card. Navigate the location you copied the ”ROM.zip” file and follow the directions for installing Android 5.0 Lollipop on your Motorola Moto Xt615 . As soon as the installation is over, just reboot your Motorola Moto Xt615 device, and here you go, you’ve just upgraded it to the new Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Not such a bad phone, after all.....and is just getting better. ;-)
Have had phone for 2 years. June 2012. No problems. Have replaced battery once. And again this week it would no longer hold a charge. I replaced the battery again with a new one (not refurbished). It still will not hold charge. I have charged it for 11 hours and it losses the charge in 7 hours. Help. Any suggestions. Thank you.

I got my motorola XT615 from a neighbor for $50, canadian currency. Everything works ok, except I can't send or receive photos. This is my 1st time owning a cell phone. The previous owner had it about a year when he sold it to me...
O.K. phone. This phone,I purchased,is unlocked. Will except any sim card. I take it with me,when I am on holiday. I leave my Apple Iphone,home.
worst phone ever! I thought since Motorola was owned by Google. this was going to work lovely.. it doesn´t I had the phone for about a year. Dust started to filter to the screen through the opening where you charge it. after a year of having the phone, it would re-start by it own. over heating. power button stopped working, i did a mayor reset. erased everything. and yet it did not work. i just gave up, first time and the last time buying a Motorola.
bought this on Motorola's previous reputation but very disappointed about this XT615!! really rubbish phone!! sent back to repair 3 times within a year. not the camera can't work again, and screen go black nearly every 10 minutes. restart function can't work, have to remove the battery for restarting the phone. never buy any more Motorola!!
First, batterie life far to short! I got max. 3 hours out of it! Back cover falls off regularly! ! Camera stopped working after one year and the quality of the pictures was absolutely bad!
Freezes at least twice a day!
Tried to sell it to several online second hand shops! Most didnt even want it! One offered loughable 3£ the best offer I had was 4.80£!
Just 14 month ago I payd 189£ I guess that says everything! DONT buy it! Keep your hands off a used one! Exept you get it for 5£ and it is for your lil son/daughter to play with!
6 month has been gone I did't got update version could you pls tell me have any possibility to get any update version on that facking mobile
I have an xt615 turned it off one day when I turned it back on all I could get was the Motorola logo on the screen didn't want to display the home screen.Don't know what the problem is I guess it is the end of life for that one
