Mine is still going strong for daily use with LineageOS.
I only use WhatsApp though.
My mom has the Motorola Moto G since 2014 and it still works today. The only major issue I had was the power button component that came off the board. It was easily fixed by soldering and I added a piece of paper between the buttons and the battery to have a back support.
I bought a Moto G5 S-Plus three weeks ago. I often found the phone not responding to the power on button, or at times the home screen doesn't come up. Also I am unable switch off screen saver pictures, i am not sure if I missed how to do that. Otherwise the phone is good, camera is OK that's all
One SIM. I'm selling mine since I upgraded to a MOTO X4. Works like new. Unlocked.
I am using this phone since 2014, it's a very good phone. Now I think that 1 GB RAM is very small to handle the big apps, in market the 4gb ram Mobiles flooded with new choice going to moto G5s plus with its 4GB ram, 3000amp battery, 64gb in build memory, better camera, LTE, external memory support, all this make it better choice. But moto g original is still going smooth if we keep less apps & free storage like 6 GB. I love moto g brand.

Have had my 16GB Motorola G 1st edition since 2013 and I haven't found an SD card on it yet we know it's not there. The phone has work for me perfectly over all these years and doesn't have a scratch on it I love this phone and I wish they made more of them.
I'm being using this phone for 4 years without any problem even with some drops to the floor.
I really think this is the best purchase I ever made.
Motorola service centre gives third class services. I have given a mobile to the service centre at CTC odiaha since 3 days ago. They r taking the time 7days more. Problem is minor. I,e charger pin.
Great phone, still working well. Benefits from the Cyanogenmod upgrade to Android 6. Still support on XDA developers to run Android 7. Only upgrading because I want a better camera and SD storage.
Best Phone. Using it for 4 years. Installed lineage OS 14.1 (will upgrade to Android Oreo i,e Lineage OS 15 soon). It works like brand new phone though it doesn't have many latest features. I still use this phone till it is supported by Lineage OS and ugrade the phone later. Long live falcon.
The worst phone i ever used in my life never going to use these phone in future there service center are in a great doubt ask about price you will get 50 different quotes in delhi
worst battery backup
charging with transformer
sims not working network issue
automatically going to aeroplane mode
updates are problem as the mobile dont work well after it
Mayur Jive, 01 Sep 2017Best ever smartphone. Using last 3 and half year. Very beautiful display competing this days h... moreYes brother, you said the truth. I also have the same experience. I have been using Moto G first generation 3 and half years. No problems yet. Thank you Motorola moto G first generation. Because first generation is made by Google company. I think, all other generations of Moto G (made by Lenovo company) are not worthy as Moto G first generation.
Best ever smartphone. Using last 3 and half year. Very beautiful display competing this days high end phone. No lagging on normal games. No hanging but little bit slow. Very hard material . I fall it 100 of times never single scratch on screen. Never used cover, back cover or screen guard.
Proudly Moto G 1gen owner. It is a great machine. 3 years and still working. Cons: basic camera, no LTE, basic battery not user removable.
So sorry I bought this phone it has a mind of its own many times when an incoming call happens i have no way to answer it. For some reason from time to time my contacts all disappear save for two or three. Battery last for a day. things that work fine once or twice quit. I am so sorry Sony for having cast you aside.
Dany16, 19 Apr 2017Hi guys, i have a Moto g and have been using it for a long time. But, now suddenly it has star... moreWould you happen to be running "Shut-App"?- My Moto G ran great for a year then suddenly was hot all the time, and the battery wouldn't last three hours- Found out that an update to "Shut- App" was the cause. The day after I uninstalled that app, , it ran perfect again- To this day, as a matter of fact. Maybe also try a longer cable plugged into a usb port on a PC or laptop- longer to charge but it's easier on the battery
Anonymous, 02 Aug 2017Perfect Smartphone. Love it. Longest lasting Android. I've used Motorola phones since the Nextel walkie talkie was cool. Actually, probably had a Motorola beeper first.
I dropped the moto G and x probably 100 times working on concrete or heights and never broke the glass (without a protective case). When they'd finally break I'd buy a new one. $50 each through republic wireless or cricket. Now these phones are hard to buy and I don't mess with eBay.
I wasted $100 on a galaxy sol with the promise of gorilla glass in the specs and it broke dropping 2 feet onto a dinner plate. It was a horrible phone to begin with.
I find a gently used moto G on Craigslist for $40 and meet the guy at the store and voila! Back in business. It's old but reliable AND came with a case this time. Thanks Motorola. Bring the good phones back.....and the walkie talkie
