I bought my Motorola Moto G (1st Generation) back in summer 2014 while on holiday in Canada and it has been brilliant under constant daily use for everything, calls, internet, video calls, photos, voice recording etc.
BUT - Lesson learned: buy your phone where you live: I have had big problems with the Bluetooth on this phone, I think because it was a version for use in Canada, and I live in UK.
Fortunately I bought a rubber case for it which is probably why it has survived a lot of abuse including being dropped on hard ground a few times.
Now, nearly 4 years on, the OS (Android 5.1- the last available upgrade for this phone) still handles apps, and the only slight negative is that the battery is now not as amazingly good as it once was, but still gives good standby and talk time.
I have had this cellphone for ~2 years.
Now, it opens programs without my instruction, must be running in the background. It also screws up the numbers associated with the names assigned.
This cellphone has not been mishandled. Dropped from waist height 2-3 times.
Am now looking at a cheaper (~$400 with trade-in) iPhone. They seem to have a better reputation at a greater expense.
Can not decide if this device is worth cost of service.
Moto g was among the highest rated phones when I made the decision to purchase; previous LG phone was not satisfactory.
hello everyone, i have this phone since 5 years i dropped 2 times, at the first drop screen had broken but saler changed the screen for free in a warranty, second time i dropped it from my pocket while i riding mbike, after 1 day i found it with helps of google device manager because my phone was not dead, in a random street. then i just changed the screen. it works great battery and main board conditions are great and both of them has waves, because when i dropped it in that time, it damaged by a car tire, yes this phone is immortal.
Sorry for my english. I have this phone almost 4 year, it works perfect, i dropt it many time, but nothing happands to it, its perfect phone for me, i like size and body of this phone. We need moor megapixel and moor mhprs in this body. It would be best smartphone in the world ever!)) Moto g 1st is best
I've had this phone for nearly 5 years. It has never let me down. Its been dropped multiple times and is as scuffed as Jean claude van damme. Not really sure why motorola is not as popular as some other makes, which break if you so much as look at them wrongly. If this phone was still in production today, i would buy another one.
Nice work Motorola.
This phone is built like a rock. I've dropped it so many times I've lost count, haven't had a single issue. Eventually though I accidentally dropped it onto concrete from a second story window, which cracked the screen. Despite losing a good portion of its lower part the phone itself still works just fine, as if nothing had happened. Seriously, this phone kicks butt. If you want a phone to use for years with little to no problems, look no further than this one.
I only hope that other Motorola phones are as good as this one, because I'm probably going to be exclusively using Motorolas for a while.
Had the phone 3 years, no real problems. Sometimes loses network connection but only for a short period and normally only when I'm in a bad reception area, other than that I can't fault it.
Launched in 2013 but still this phone is rocking for me, recently 8.1 Oreo ROM came out for it. With such a great custom ROMs support this is by far one of the best phones by Motorola.
40 months old still going strong, battery lasts as new 2 1/2 days with moderate usage. Looks like new. Replaced now with a Huawei P8 lite, as memory now a problem. Passing old one to family member. But absolutely impressive for £100 in 2013.
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.
