For Moto G Owners:
How is the build quality of the phone? Did they sacrifice on it to make the phone more affordable or it feels like the phone can withstand some drops?
Droid Ghost, 23 Nov 2013Nexus 5 is a very good phone but cost a lot for those doesn't have money. If you don't wanna s... moreWell I can honestly say that the following pointers are 100% true and at last we can have a phone at just £130.00 or even less that really works well !
1 x Battery life is very good indeed and getting through a full day with heavy usage
2 x very loud rear and front speaker ( very clear as well )
3 x LED Notification light on top front left of speaker
4 x Very strong signal both wifi and 3g ( no 4g sorry but who cares lol )
5 x very nice quality premium feel to it and design
6 x Pure yes pure android 4.3 ( no rubbish lagging overlay software like galaxy touch wizz , htc , sony etc etc ) out of the box soon to have 4.4 kitkat in January
7 x Very good camera indeed and nice easy to use software ( not the best camera but most of us have a real camera for pics anyway but still very good all the same )
8 x Customisable colour backs for that personal touch
9 x Comes completely UNLOCKED SIM FREE ( don`t worry about the 8gb storage as you can store all your pics on dropbox,google pics , cloud etc )
10 x The 4.5" screen is on the same level and high quality of a iphone5s etc and is very nice to look at indeed
11 x Just £160 or less for a phone that simply works like a phone should do and that we`ve all been longing for for ages lol ...
I hope this review will give you guys the proof and honest opinion of that the moto g really is a great phone and for the price a simple no brainer !
Thank you and have a merry xmas and new year from all of us at MaxsoundCarAudio

People who buy moto g, do so because it gives them sharp screen and great battery life without having to pay extra buck for LTE. If you knew a thing or two about LTE coverage and prices on a global level, you would understand. I bet it will get an amazing developers community on xda forums!
Droid Ghost, 23 Nov 2013Nexus 5 is a very good phone but cost a lot for those doesn't have money. If you don't wanna s... moreWell I`ve tried almost every phone on this planet to find one with the following specs , long battery life , 4.3 jellybean pure android soon to be kitkit before any of the others even get a whiff of it ,LED notification light , great speaker front and rear , high end screen , great wifi and 3g signal , fits in the hand well without being to big like the s3/s4 etc etc and I have to say that the Moto G does all of the mentioned 100% !I can`t believe that a phone that costs just £130. sim free can give all of this so why the heck may we ask does it cost 3 x this amount £400 - £600 for other phones that simply can not give what the Moto G can deliver ?Google and Motorola really have done a fantastic job of this phone indeed .Ok so it`s only got 8gb of internal ( there is a 16gb variant as well ) storage well so what simply use cloud or drop box,google storage etc etc and the rear camera is 5mp well big deal as it still delivers great pics so no probs there !All in all I`m very pleased indeed with the the Moto G and would recommend it to anyone looking for a great 4.5" pure android phone that ticks all the right boxes 100% .Thank you...MaxsoundCarAudio Uk

If you don't wanna s... moreactually people jumping up and down about the power of nexus 5's hardware will be disappointed withing a few months when SoC manufacturers come up with even better hardware, rendering their device useless(not literally I mean). So use a device with lower cost but enjoy the latest software perks and change it within 1 yr, thats my opinion..

The Moto G targeted Teenagers and people that not use the phone so much for storing a lot of files.
Did anyone notice.. After the launch of Moto G,all leaks of Nokia Lumia 525 vanished......hahahahahhhhhaaahhaaaa...lolz
CarlOps, 22 Nov 2013'Motorola brand is unreliable'??? Where did you get that from? Their quality is actually very ... moreExactly. I'm a Nokia user now but before that I was using Motorola, and man, they are built to last, just like Nokia. 3 out of 4 Motorolas I have still work, that includes original batteries, one just needs a new flat cable. My friend has a Droid RAZR and he's praising its robustness too.
By the way, if anyone needs the wallpaper from Moto G, get it here: http://www.zedge.net/wallpaper/10089919/moto-g/

Their quality is actually very good. I have a Defy and it is very well built and for a phone that's almost 3 years old it performs great!
