Just bought this phone from Phones4u as they were the only shop in Manchester to have any in stock (I think there's a clue here). I am sooo pleased I chose this phone. Its fast, nippy and the touch experience is the best yet. Well done Google for buying Motorola. The camera is allot better than what some reviews suggest. The colour and light is spot on better than my Sony C905 Cybershot that's going a long way for me. Sound quality is impressive both for voice and music. Motorola always have made good quality phones but up until now styling and attractive functionality have been missing. Now its got it all and I think this phone will set the benchmark for budget smartphones.

can't i transfer the data from my moto g to my computer, or from computer to pc ... moreTransfer between PC and moto G is different than OTG and you can do that with usb data cable and bluetooth.
In that case computer will take the moto G as a flash drive and you can copy and paste any thing you want.
No OTG support means no more Flash memory drive can be used with moto G.
any guess for the distribution partner in India? Can we use OTG with any 3 rd party apps without rooting?

ovi das, 15 Jan 2014@imtiaz639 can't i transfer the data from my moto g to my computer, or from computer to pc ... moreWell, you can do perhaps anything with a computer and a mobile phone, with or without cables..!!!
I now have my Kitkat update - yay.
It seems to be generally good although I haven't tried the ART feature yet.
I have just a couple of issues:
1 - The QuickOffice widget for access to recent files is now gone and I used that a lot :(
2 - The new printing functionality only works with HP printers so to anyone else it essentially becomes unremovable bloatware - not good on a Vanilla OS.
Everything else is good though and the camera is noticeably improved :)
launch t in India as soon as possible otherwise moto g will not compete with the HP Slate 6 Voice Tab that will be launching within one month.

Just reported: for India, Moto G would be announced in Last Week of January...!!!!!! Regarding price, it would be competitive. Got to wait for atleast 2 more weeks.
Joy, 15 Jan 2014"I don't think they pay nothing more than 5 dollars per device to microsoft, yeah if you ... moreFirst of all, the phone is great. I've had it for about 2 weeks and I'm amazed by its performance. There are better (as in, faster and more feature packed) phones out there, no doubt about that, but the Moto G is like the king of its price range. I'd suggest you go for the 16GB. It's definitely more future-proof.
Just received KitKat for my moto g which is UK version,thanks moto.
Anonymous, 15 Jan 2014Thank you for your kind reply, I agree some of your critics but some of them are mistaken.
... more"I don't think they pay nothing more than 5 dollars per device to microsoft, yeah if you sell more you pay also more but you also gain money? am I right?"
Well yeah, but all I meant was according to reports, MS earns more from Android than Surface. Can be true..!!! Android sells more or Surface falls short in sales, possibly both affecting..!! Also, it's expected Ms revenue from Android would be 8+B$ by 2017.
Anyways coming to phone, I knew, but thanks for confirming that the SD Card slot is not patented, instead it's the FAT file system and debunking the "Slow SD Card" myth. Also, 8Gb or 16GB, celebrate the phone for it's asking price..!! Cheers.!!
Whats the difference between google play edition and normal version of moto g
Please help me out..
And could I use my 3.5mm other companies charger to charge the phone or I have to purchase a usb charger for charging my moto g?????
Please help me out friends...
If it has NFC I would buy it, it perfect for me. I use google wallet most of the time. It's fast and easier than using plastic card or cash.

what is OTG bro...
plz explainBecos there is no SD card slot, so you use a flash USB drive. All your file, songs, movies are stored on that flash memory and you connect that flash to the phone using usb-miniUSB cable any time you want them offline.
That is OTG. Just Google it.

1- Microsoft gains nothing from MicroSD, they didn't founded anything relevant with SD, it is actually FAT file system what Microsoft gathering money from.
And they have right to do, because if you make money from other people's ideas or products you should pay for it.
2- I don't think they pay nothing more than 5 dollars per device to microsoft, yeah if you sell more you pay also more but you also gain money? am I right?
3- Indeed it is a cheap device, but it is not an excuise for this handicap, I mean if you bought 8 gb version and out of memory, so what...
Delete unwanted games, old photos, cache data?
For how long?
Will you have past with your device in this way, I mean will be there snapshots or some clips of your own rememberance?
Wedding invitations or parties, holidays, activities...
Do you think you going to have a backup device or something on all of thoose moments or some may be?
I don't think so...
Our brain is great, magic, fantastic computer but.
He also forgets.
A simple SD-Slot means nothing, the meaning is BACKING-UP.
And we don't have good enough believe against cloud privacy, not hiding anything means not somethings needs to be remain as private.
Don't take above comments offensive, I told just mine opinions as you did.
Good luck with it.
And the other commentair,
MicroSD doesn't slow your device down, get faster cards from known good quality brands and you'll see.
It is your myth may be but true.
Just letting you know.
SOME SD CARDS SLIGHTLY FASTER THAN EMMC STORAGES.
You may be think, NAND drives are faster...
Partially: yes, but it is not...
They saying you it is flash storage but they not saying it is not NAND, because it is eMMC (Same technology as SD).
