Did you faced the same problem? I am connecting the phone with my Airtel modem and the plan is of 4 mbps. It is still taking so much time to download system update of 425 MB.

This phone has descent specs for peice and has no bloatware and also has removable battery which is handy.
This phone should have been successful in sales if only they made it available to other countries. I have been searching this in UAE and Philippines but there is none. The only motorola that they advertise was the moto g4 plus and the moto z. This phone should compete with xiaomi redmi note 3 since it has removable battery.

The best unlocked smartphone money can buy right now hands down and does everything just as good as flagship can do and If I was you I had take it and run.
For me, the main point of buying a 5 inch phone is the desire for compactness. This is in fact my currently preferred size. However, this phone is a bit bulky for maximum compactness compared to the Xiaomi Redmi 3 series. The Moto is 144.4 mm long vs the Redmi 3 at 139. The Moto is 72 mm wide vs Redmi at roughly 69 mm. There are some 5.2 inch phones of similar width to the Moto and even the 5.5 inch Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge is only 72 point something wide, don't know exactly, but the Moto is way too wide because of over thick bezels. Defeats the purpose if you are looking for maximum compactness.
I'm getting almost 24 hours of battery life with bluetooth off, 40% screen brightness, light web browsing, few calls, few downloads and watching some videos via wifi. As any other phone, It drains faster when using camera, GPS, 4G network, but even with heavy use I'm getting 12+ hours. The original charger with 10W takes 1h30min to 2 hours for a full charge. A few minutes plugged in a PC with the USB cable can get you more hours when unplugged. I'm very happy with it. It gets hot above the "M" logo in the back in the first 30 minutes of charging or when using the camera, but it's not something that should worry a prospective buyer. Very good battery life with Android 6.0. I use an app called Greenify to put background processes in hibernation and it definitely helps a lot. Very decent performance, no lags, in 2 months I have never needed to reset the phone because of bugs. I wish the camera had better performance and more manual controls but OpenCamera is a good alternative app. GSMArena this is my thank you for being such a great site!!

Dmitry, 07 Jan 2017Hi, does anybody know wether it has the led notifications build in?
All Moto phones have a feature called Active display. Moment you move your phone, screen will display all the notifications ( without unlocking)
No need to have led notification ( though it has led underneath, but inactive in most of phones)
