No this phone is great but yes that my be heating issues in it but i am really interested in this phone to buy
I need help. I'm really interested in this phone but I keep hearing about all the problems it's having with heat and connectivity...I'm equally interested in the htc10 but I'm torn between the two..can someone share a little insight about what they would choose? Now keep in mind I have no problem USB c or no jack, I just want to get close to stock Android, without giving up and card expansion...thanks in advance!
A friend of mine owns that phone. The design is "weird" at best. It's ultra thin tho, never seen a phone that thin but it comes with its share of problems.
The phone is underwhelming, it's a heating machine. While playing real racing 3, the phone just kept throttling and the back of the phone was unbearable hot. And i thought my old nexus 5 was hot...
Despite having a good screen, nice 3D model and visually appealing the phone offered nothing more than problems and freezes. Going thro the android UI was visually hurting my eyes despite having a snapdragon 820. All i could think is how Moto had accomplished to launch such a bad phone with a snapdragon 820 and for that price tag.
At that time i still had the nexus 5, which considering a phone from 2013 was performing much better than his new Moto X phone.
He wasn't much into phones so he didn't exchange nor refund it, he kept it.
When I bought my Oneplus 5 in July my friend realized how dumb he was keeping his phone. Now the Moto is performing much worse
Losing GPS signal, Wifi signal constantly turning off. Now it's a freaking heat machine, untouchable when playing clash royale for 10 min, it throttles badly.
And that battery, jesus christ, he achieves 1-2 SOT while normally surfing and doing a bit of gaming here and there.
He considered selling it for 300Â€, well, i said: good luck with that!
To make it short, do not buy that phone or you'll regret it deeply. Take 100euros/dollars more and get the oneplus 5 or for the same price the oneplus 3/3T.
This is an amazing Phone. Keeps me online with my church at all time without freezing or having to spool at intervals. The downside for me is WhatsApp application that is malfunctioning and I have to restart to make audio and visual calls. It must however be noted that this problem relates only to WhatsApp. Others like Facebook messenger and Skype works perfectly well.
This is an amazing device used an iPhone before this and can feel the difference . I also got the incipio moto mod power it's fantastic I never run out of battery life.
The only thing I have noticed is Instagram keeps freezing Nd I have to restart the phone to be Blessed to access it and it can be frustrating has anyone experienced this ??
Imad, 20 Aug 2017How is sound coming from ear speaker? I had bad experience with Lenovo, The holes of ear speak... moreTo be honest, so far so good. I'd not had any problem about what you asked in the previous two years with my Moto X either.
Also, I do not really think that Lenovo yet intervenes what Motorola does/used to do with its phones (Hardware wise). Given the fact that Lenovo wants to keep Motorola as it is and as its flagship phone brand, I see no reason in forcing them to use ear speakers like Lenovos have.
In case something goes bad with the phone, for sure I share it here with you guys.
mkidd, 04 Aug 2017I really do not understand people commenting irrationally and unrealistically here. Guys, plea... moreHow is sound coming from ear speaker? I had bad experience with Lenovo, The holes of ear speaker of Lenovo is too small and sweat liqiuid coming from ear goes inside the speaker and close them and make sound very low?
The best phone out there for me. After 7.1.1 update its even smoother than before and battery last me 2 full days . All i can say is go for this phone its really worth the money
I used the phone for six months, and then I couldn't bear it any longer. A very disappointing experience for a very premium price. From day one I suffered from a very unreliable battery that left me stranded with no connectivity in very critical situations.
They claim to offer super fast charging; well no wonder, given that the battery barely lasts for half a day! And then you just have to keep charging and charging.
Software is - at best - unstable and applications just keep on hanging, closing and have to be restarted again.
You struggle to find basic actions within a settings mapping that doesn't follow basic human logic by any means.
Mods are shockingly expensive, priced at 30 - 40% of the phone's value!!
Despite the sad financial loss, I was left with no other choice but to ditch the Moto z and buy another phone, that is yes, thicker and heavier but fulfills a basic mobile phone criterion, which is something called RELIABILITY!
I was warned by friends from buying a Motorola, because it doesn't have a great history of being a great mobile phone brand. However, I thought after the full brand rehaul by Lenovo and the creativity of the Moto mods platform, it would defeat negative perceptions.
Turned out to be a very sad regret though. And certainly never again!!
anas, 04 Aug 2017Got 7.1.1, battery drain fast than 7.and heatingI have same problems
Hello Moto your 7.1 is best.Increased battery backup, fastness and smoothness.But you can't avoid heating problem.
celeste, 06 Aug 2017I have the same problem with the batery, drain very fastAny heating problem
Moto-Z Play screen shattered form less than 24" drop. Motorola was no help in solving an apparent design or material defect. Appears their happy to be a repair house for thier parent company Lenovo. Recommend not to buy.....
