Bought the Nokia Lumia 620 in August 2013. It is not the most user unfriendly phone even for a tech savvy person like me. Hated it from day 1, and it made my life miserable. Felt like flinging it every day. It was sticky, hanging from time to time, display flickering. Tech savvy as I was, I could not get the hang of it even after 8 months. Simple operations like making a call required 3 to 4 touches. Battery has to be charged twice a day.
Bought the Moto G a week ago. Enjoying every minute with it. The 4.5 inch display fits perfectly in the palm for one hand operation. Any larger and that would not have been possible. Android Kitkat (out of the box) is an amazing software. The phone is fast, fluid and sings when you touch it. Never a dither. It is so user friendly that I had it up and running in 30 secs flat and using it like an expert within an hour. Transferring the contacts from the Lumia to the Moto was just a case of exporting the outlook.com contacts as a csv file and importing them into a separate Gmail account that I had set up for the purpose and which I use as my account for the phone. The camera with HDR enabled takes great photos. The speaker volume is loud and crystal clear. Downloaded Cloudskipper which makes an ideal music player (Google player sucks) and the sound is great. The FM Radio adds zing to the music experience. The incoming calls are crystal clear and the phone picks up even the weakest of signals both Mobile network and wifi. Battery with power saving enabled lasts me two full days and I have 15-2-% to spare and that is a relief. The Email app with push mail is amazing and I can access 3 different accounts. Switching to silent mode is as easy as pressing a button, and into aeroplane mode as easy as swiping the notification screen. The factory widgets are useful and the direct call widget is a boon that has enabled me to set up speed dialling to 10 contacts from the home screen. The browsing is good with Opera Browser (not mini or classic) with large font and word wrapping that makes reading webpages easy. Chrome sucks. Moto assist is a fantastic app that leaves you in peace when you are sleeping or in a meeting, yet making sure that your favourites can reach you. Factory loaded quick office makes carrying a tablet redundant.
This piece of techno-art is on par with ((maybe even, better than) the much more expensive Samsung Galaxy S 5, Sony Xperia SP or Z1 and even the iPhone 5. Really value for money. Let's see how it holds up with use.

Anonymous, 24 Apr 2014Moto g dont have s.c.so i went for micromax canvas 4Moto g best than iPhone 4s excellent
I have been using this phone for the last 14 days and I must say this phone is a milestone ahead of my sony xperia u in terms of performance and screen.
I have seen many people writing comments like facing issues like network drop.I am a heavy user for making phone calls and I haven't faced any issue with the network or call quality. I find the call quality and network reception was better than my sony xperia u.
Dear all I have purchased this MOTO-G 16GB from Flipkart.com (online), and I used till 4 days and suddenly my phone (MOTO-G) display showing yellowish patches in the place of WHITE or BRIGHT WHITE COLOR, And now its getting more and more every time and day by day, I can't getting proper response to whom should I raise complaint for service my MOTO-G 16GB.
Dear all Moto G users kindly suggest me one thing that whether 8 GB version is sufficient for person like me as I never install and play games in my handset. I require maximum about 1.1 GB applications, rest remaining memory I could use for files. Please share the view being the user of this device. Thanks in advance friends

This is a gud phone for this config. But are these issues are still available? Weather to go for this model or not? Need ur opinion guys!
sunny, 23 Apr 2014hello evry1 , my query regrding moto g is - m hearing stufs like after updating to kitkat moto... moreActually the problem is you have to keep the volume 1 point slower. Like dont keep the volume 100% make it 90. And about the blank screen try a factory reset and the simcard should be of xact microsim size
Yogesh, 23 Apr 2014Is moto G a single sim phone or does it support dual sim cards? Please tell me guys!There are single and dual SIM versions.
