To be honest, this phone was one of the best purchases I have ever made. At under 200 Euros, the phone was an absolute steal. Great screen, great UI, good connectivity and a decent battery to boot. Plus you could equip it with a case that made it very resilient to drops, and also enhanced its look. The only downsides are camera (which was good given the price, but poor relative to flagships), the storage space (because I cheaped out, and got the 8 Gb version) and with recent android updates, the memory capacity. But even now, it is still a very reliable smartphone.
People complaining about limitations should realize that budget phones will eventually show limitations when running the latest software. To be honest, an extra 512 MB/1 GB ram would turn this into a performer even in the current climate of smartphones. Great great phone.
not good survice at all..speaker is not working and starts working on its own...became auto within 6 months
No proper service.... no spare parts.... the battery getting very hot within is seconds.

Anonymous, 15 Dec 2016How do you remove the simm card out of a Moto G phone? thanksGive it a nudge with your fingertip/nail. Use a tool of convineance (like a small srewdriver if not otherwise possible).
It is "spring loaded"...
Bought the Moto G in late 2013 and am still using it as a back-up phone. Battery life is spectacular, compared with the later "high end" phones I have bought.
The screen has vivid colours and the hardware is nonthing but spectacluar considering the price of 1700 SEK ( about 170£ at that time), when I bought it.
For fun, I downloaded Asphalt to the device- and it worked as a charm.
I did that after the Moto G had been in a coupboard for nine months without recharging, and it still had some 95% of juice in it.
A very good looking device it is to. Not to mention it is nearly impossible to break it. I've had it on me, unprotected, for wihte water rafting, skydiving, military exercises, to arctic environments aswell as to equarorial heat and humidity. I have dropped it in the ocean and in peat bogs and at one time a reindeer used it as a chewing toy and it still works (a bit smelly- but any way).
The only downsides with the phone is the meager 8 Gb of storage and the subpar camera. Eaven so, I have taken some spectacular photographs with this phone in the right light.
This IS the phone I'll be keeping in my bugger out case for the time being...
I bought one on an eBay auction won it for £14.40p small ligh crack unlocked 4g version bargin

It's your fault. Better spend some extra money and buy latest version.
I bought MoTo G3 on March 2016. Among two simslots, one is frequently not working. I switched of then switch on. 5 minutes both slots will work, then one of the slots will not work. Battery also very poor. Please dont waste money. Look and feel is very bad. It dont look like smart phone. I can give rating as 0.5/10.

For memory problem buy a usb on the go adapter with external micro sd card max size 64gb and plug via usb .Download a programm called usb stick plugin and total commander totally free and transfer your files (video/photos/mp3) in case you need extra memory then you can transfer them to your computer.
I have been using the Moto g 1st generation for 2 years and the only problem I have is low storage ever since it had updated. I have epilepsy (seizures disorder) so, I've dropped my phone around 60 times, and 3 times in the toilet. I only got minor scratches to the corners and a tiny stratch on my screen. I've even tossed in on cement. (Seizures) And my phone works perfect. I'm getting the Moto g play 4th gen soon and hope its just as good but, more storage. Has a SD slot! Wood woot! I'll post a comment about that phone in a few weeks. :D
I've had this phone for a year and a half. I have had no problems with the phone and it works much better than I expected for a lower priced phone. The two objections I have is the battery is not user replaceable and it has Google apps per-installed that I will never use and cannot be removed.
