Trying to replace my Moto G4 with another phone.But talking about battery life thinking about doing all the known battery saving tips that you can think of (from turning off NFC, bluetooth, Airplay, GPS, background syncing, tracking, etc. on an iOS device) would you say an iPhone 6S Plus would be better than a Moto G4 or vice versa?
Chelinh5, 04 Jul 2017My phone keeps flickering. Anyone knows why?-Go to settings >> More Tab >> About device.
-Find "Build number" and click 6 times fast on it.
-You will then get the message saying: "You are now a developer"
-Come back to Home Screen, and then go back to Settings >> More Tab >> Now you will -see the "Developer Options"
-Now go to Developer options >> Drawing Section or Rendering Section >> Find "Turn off hardware overlays" or "disable hardware overlays" >> This will force the phone to always use GPU for screen compositing
YJ, 03 Jun 2017GSM phone should work with any phone company anywhere .My wife and I have the Moto G4 and she is on Cricket (AT&T) and I am on Verizon ( Totalwireless). NO problems yet. I think most problems are due to App issues. How can any mfg verify every App. I had and iPhone 5s and if was flawless with any App I installed.

My partner and I both have Moto G4 supplied by Carphone Warehouse in UK.
Were both on Android Nougat with no battery issues as far as we can tell. Phone can be charged on morning and be used for instant to 9.40pm and it's now at 73% with 1 day 10 hours left on the battery.
Pretty good phone if one likes stock android. Only problem i have compared to other phones is poor voice quality of speaker. What i especially like in this compared to gf's huawei P9 lite is faster and (way) more reliable gps.
Now after a year of use battery life seems bit worse than it was but i usually end up replacing battery once per 1½ years with my smartphones, so that seems normal.

yes, i experience that too
I have a Moto G4 purchased back in July of 2016 and everything was working great. It had good battery life and responded pretty well. But, as soon as I updated to Android 7.0, that's when my battery life declined quickly to the point where I was dependent on carrying a charger to wherever I went. Also, the phone now reboots itself randomly. The phone also shuts down in mid conversation with someone. This is unacceptable. Now, July 4, 2017, I need a new phone to function.

Love this phone but is anyone having battery drain probs after the nougat 7.0 update, my battery has gone from 100% to 59% since 8am this morning.

Thank you again, it was enough a eye filter for the ghost screen problem, unbelievable
anonymous, 21 Jun 2017go for z3Z3? Despite no Nougat update? Despite photo noise/blurriness when zoomed in? etc.

I have the screen ghost image problem too though, started 2 months after purchase, possibly triggered by nougat update (which is otherwise awesome). I don't want to send it back and risk getting worse problems so have found a solution- go on playstore and download the EYE FILTER app. Set the colour to black at 4%. Leave it in always. It won't drain the battery and the black overlay will not make the screen look weird. In fact it adds a classy gloss. Taking the edge off the white stops the ghosting. This is a cracking phone, best in its class the price.
I ran a short survey on Twitter asking people what old flagship/affordable last-gen phone would they get for a balance of true all-day battery, water-resistance, a great (not just good) camera & above average performance. My choices were Moto G4, Xperia Z3 & something else. People chose the Z3. Would u guys agree despite being a few years old, noisy photos when zoomed in and guaranteed no Nougat update?
