Freefaller™, 30 Jan 2014@ laxis What ISN'T made in China these days?@Freefaller I never said the word 'made'. When Motorola was owned by Google, users were confident of getting updates quicker than any other Android phones (except maybe Nexus). But with Lenovo's acquisition Motorola phone (potential) users will be in doubt.
I decide to buy a midrange android but I refrain myself from buying a chinese phone so I thought I will get a Moto G. But unfortunately Moto G is just another chinese phone.
aldo, 30 Jan 2014hi!
i am looking for a dualsim phone and in my country i have at the same price motorola mot... moreMoto G won the product of the year,, so undoubtedly it is the best. But the prob is today Google announced that it's selling Motorola's smartphone business to Chinese manufacturer Lenovo for about $3 billion. And that can be a concern.
Apart from that i can suggest you another good phone in this price range desire 501 better than core and 500 anyday.
malithishan, 30 Jan 2014How many hours i have to charge moto g for the first time (first charge) @ malithishan
As long as it takes to reach 100% (LOL). My phone came with about 60% charge in the battery. I just plugged it in overnight (about 7 hours).
The booklet that comes with the phone states "Motorola batteries and charging systems have circuitry that protects the battery from damage from overcharging".
One word of caution though. Do NOT let the battery run right down. There are reports from other users on the Internet that if you let the battery run down to 0% then it will not recharge or have difficulty beginning the charge. I charge mine when it reaches 16 - 20%.
CybeR GulaN, 30 Jan 2014Google sold Motorola mobility to Lenovo for 2.9 billion..
Will it affect Moto G anyways??That's where my concern also lies.
Though lenovo was the forth highest grosser in this quarter still relying on them with this phone, will that serve the purpose?
My second concern lies in the fact, that i was actually buying this phone for the Google branding and it's fast updates. Now suddenly that seems vague.
Am actually in a dilemma after receiving this news.
Micromax is also launching their successor of Canvas Knight with better specs.
Lenovo and Micromax hold the same stature for me.
Anonymous, 30 Jan 2014@ malithishan That will work okay. The phone has IC protection so don't worry about overcharging.How many hours i have to charge moto g for the first time (first charge)
Google announced today that it's selling Motorola's smartphone business to Chinese manufacturer Lenovo for about $3 billion.
So does that mean that from now on all the samrtphone issues will be handled by Lenovo?
So all about moto G receiving the fastest of updates will remain a marketing strategy?
malithishan, 30 Jan 2014Output +5V 1A is good or bad@ malithishan
That will work okay. The phone has IC protection so don't worry about overcharging.
malithishan, 30 Jan 2014what are the compatible chargers for MOTO G?? And Output of that chargerAny micro USB charger with a 0.5A rating or higher will work. Motorola recommend 1.0A minimum, but I use a 2.1A one without any problems.

vipuljain, 29 Jan 2014Ok its my fault but what troubles me is that in just five days how can a reputed company's han... moreWell thats kind of a strange thing I heard about many phones. It could be a bug in Software itself (jumps from 75% to 20% but after restarts shows correct)or a faulty battery. I charge my Moto G ONLY from PC as its just easier for me. I have my WiFi turned on almost all the time and never noticed anything wrong with battery like you mentioned. Make sure your phone is 90-100% charged when taken off charging and DONT ever overcharge your battery or recharge from 40-50% to full too often.
IN ONE OF MY LAST POST I SAID: "Older and much slower S3" and what I meant to type in there was "Older and much slower S2". Moto G scores similar to S3 in AnTuTu4 Benchmark. My apologies.
